Hello, and welcome to our first Coffee And Cards Collab of 2018. This month we have the talented Paula McClane joining us for our collab. She and Deb are both on the Growing in Unity design team together! Our theme this month is "beautiful minds inspire others." I love the image but the quote is what I used for my inspiration. Deb sent me the most adorable Brutus Monroe stamp for Christmas and I decided to let her kind gift be my starting point for my card. To create my card I started by laying some smoky grey Stampin' Up cardstock onto my white card base. I then layered some fun patterned papers from the Jen Hadfield Home Made 6x6 paper pad onto the card. I stamped the mug from the stamp set Deb sent me onto some of the patterned papers in the paper pad and fussy cut them out. Using a small Stampin' Up circle punch I cut one of the sentiments from the paper pad and used it for the center of the mug. I die cut a piece of patterned paper from the same pad using a circle die from MFT, adhered it to the card, and then popped my mug up off of the circle panel using foam dimensionals from Stampin' UP. A few scattered clear Recollections rhinestones finished this fun card up nicely. Thank you so much for the great stamp set Deb...I simply love it!
As for my coffee selection, I opted for a plain jane cup of black French roast coffee served up in the awesome new mug my son and daughter in-law got me. We have a warped sense of humor in my family. LOL. Now, pop on over to Deb and Paula's blogs and show them some love by checking out their creations and leaving a comment. Have a great day and thank you for visiting my blog!
What a fun card and mug!
I love all of the layers!
Love your card Celeste! Funny mug!
Love the card!! And that mug rocks! LOL
Love the combination of colors. Have you tried Brutus Monroe products? Just curious about it. Saw that our fave designers Kristina & Jennifer used this brand's embossing powder.-Maria Giselle
Maria, I have never used Brutus Monroe before. This stamp is the first of their products I've tried.
Oh, I like the pretty soft pink you added! This is layered in loveliness Celeste!
