Hello, and welcome to another coffee and cards collaboration with Celeste and Deb! We have another guest designer with us this month; the crafty and talented Jennifer Scull of Just Coffee Please...& Stamp, & Ribbons, & Paper. I just love the name of her blog! Our theme this month is "Geek It For The World. " I think Deb and Jennifer were gearing their cards toward science and earth theme but I just wanted to do something with the earth on it in honor of Earth Day, which was yesterday. My crafty friend Becky is a member of the Unity Stamp Company's kit of the month club and she lent me her kit from February to play with for a few weeks. The kit, Unexpected Places, has this beautiful globe and sentiment in it and I just couldn't resist cracking it out and inking it up! I created my card by inking the stamp up onto some Copic-friendly cardstock and cutting it down into a smaller panel using a stitched rectangle die by Gina Marie Designs. I layered a pretty piece of blue ombre polka dot paper from the Jen Hadfield Home+Made 6x6 paper pad onto my card base. I colored the image in using my alcohol markers and popped the focal panel up off of the card using some 3M foam tape. I went over the land portion of the globe and the sentiment with my Sakura clear jelly roll pen for some pretty shimmer. A few black sequins from Pretty Pink Posh completed this pretty card.
As for my beverage this week, I opted for a nice hot mug of Bigelow's Vanilla Chai black tea. I am training for a City to City run coming up next month and ran 8.5 miles this morning in the rain and mud and I just can't seem to get warmed up. I thought tea would help hit the spot on a cold, rainy day and it did.
wow! I am super impressed that you are training for the big run!! hooray for YOU!!!
and your card is absolutely amazing! such a great stamp and wonderful sentiment! :) I'll need to go check into that. Unity has such high quality stamps, don't they?
thank you so very much for having me as part of yours and Deb's fun monthly crafty get together! I had a fab time! :)
Jen yes, Unity has amazing quality deep etched red rubber stamps. They really do stamp beautifully!
This card is fabulous and as always, your coloring is perfection !! And even though I am terribly afraid of sock monkeys ( LOL ), your coffee picture is lovely !!!
Deb, that's too funny! You make one of two friends I have that is terrified of sock monkeys. LOL
Beautiful card Celeste. How lucky to have a friend nearby that can share her crafty stash! Good luck on the Marathon!
Yes Terri, I'm lucky to have Becky nearby. She's not just a crafty friend...she's a friend who has been a great help to me and I owe her a lot! And girl, I wish I could run a marathon. I'm not quite there yet. This race I will be doing next month is only 9.1 miles, not 23 miles. LOL
Hello, fabulous card this month, love it!
Thank you Liz! I have to admit that I had forgotten about the collaboration until the last minute so this one was created in the last hours of the day.
I was planning to use a globe on a
stand in one of my cards for class
next month. I'll hook it up to
Earth Day. thanks for the idea.
Celeste, this is wonderful!
Terrific card today Celeste!! Good for you to keep your training up even in the nasty weather. Hope your tea warmed you up ;)
Celeste, Love your card, and I can see why you wanted to borrow that Unity set. Kudos to you for being so dedicated to your training regimen. Seriously, huge kudos!!! Have a great week. :)
That globe is colored up beautifully! I am uber interested in that tea you described, too! It sounds scrumptious.
What a fantastic sentiment and I love that it is inside the globe!
