Hello and welcome to the February Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! Since February is the month where we focus on love Deb and I thought it would be fun to step away from traditional Valentine's cards and do a coffee/love themed card. To create my card I layered some grey Stampin' UP cardstock onto the base and layered some patterned papers from the Crate Paper Main Squeeze 6x6 paper pad on top. The sentiment was created using some creative masking and stamping and sentiments from Altenew's Coffee Love stamp set and Versafine onyx black ink. I stamped the awesome coffee cup using the Stamplorations Coffee Cup stamp set and some white cardstock, more of the grey cardstock, and some more the patterned paper from that same Crate Paper paper pad. I fussy cut them all out and adhered them to each other and added some shading on them using my Copic alcohol markers. I die cut a heart using a Paper Smooches die and stamped the "XO" sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Claire's ABC's stamp set and more Versafine onyx black ink. I adhered that directly to the mug and popped it up off of my card using some Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares.
For my coffee this month I opted for an iced toasted almond latte from Dunkin Donuts. I know it's cold here in Southeast Missouri but I'd been out running errands and was having a hot flash. This tasty treat really hit the spot! Now, pop on over to Deb's site and show her some blog love in the way of a comment!
Love your card!! You captured the love + coffee perfectly with the XO theme. Great job!
Great card! I love the XO background diagonal strip and the pretty cup!
Very nice card. The Versafine Onyx ink made the image and sentiment really stand out.
I like the dotty background and all of those Xs and Os! This is so cute Celeste. I had to giggle at you needing ice coffee to sooth your hot flash ;)
Beautiful and delicious card! That coffee choice of yours sounds good to me!
Oh this is fabulous! I love the pink cup and the diagonal sentiments in the background!
