Just Wanted To Say Hello-June Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb

Hello and welcome to the June collaboration of Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb. Unfortunately I had to miss the May collaboration due to a family emergency, but am glad to be back this month. We're very excited to have our crafty friend Michael Trent joining us  again. This month we opted for an "anything goes" theme. So I took this opportunity to showcase a new stamp set and paper pad I picked up for $2.99 at my local Tuesday Morning. Seriously, can you beat $2.99 for a stamp set and paper pad? To create my card I started by stamping the typewriter and the sentiment from the Bo Bunny Just My Type stamp set onto some Copic-friendly white cardstock, colored it using my alcohol markers, and fussy cut the image at the black line and the sentiment leaving a small white border. I layered some pretty patterned papers from the Bo Bunny Early Bird 6x6 paper pad onto my white A2 card base using a bit of Stampin' UP basic black cardstock as a border on the focal strip. I popped the typewriter and the sentiment up off of the card using foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives for some nice dimension. I added some shimmer to the hearts and keys on the typewriter and then went over them with glossy accents for some nice dimension and shine. A few black 6mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished up my card. I hope you like it and thank you for stopping at my blog today! 
For my coffee selection today I opted for an ice cold S'mores Crème Frappuccino from Starbucks because it's hot as Hades here in Southeast Missouri now. I was excited that they actually spelled and pronounced my name correctly this time. Small victories people! Now, pop on over to Deb and Michael's blogs and see what fun they have in store for you!

No, you can't beat that deal! Well done, Celeste! I need to get over to my Tuesday Morning more often ... not that I need any more NBUS, but a deal's a deal! I love your beautiful pp card with the text panel! I learned on a typewriter like that for a brief time. Women that typed on them for their careers must have had the world's strongest fingers!! Hugs, Darnell
