Coffee and You

Happy Wednesday everyone! Did you survive Valentine's Day? I was so afraid my husband, who never reads my blog, would for some reason choose to and see his card that I decided to wait until after I gave it to him to share it with all of you. That said, this can easily be used any time you want to share your caffeinated love with that special guy in your life!


I had so much fun making this card! I combined three different stamp sets from three different companies to create it...yeah, that's the same face my dear friend Dawn made when she wanted to CASE it. I just love mixing & matching my stamp sets, and I have one or two dozen coffee sets lying around that deserved playing with.

The coffee cup from Create a Smile I stamped twice; once on my card front for placement, the second time on a separate piece of cardstock to color with my Copics. I was aiming for a Valentine-y ombre effect and love how it turned out. Once dry I fussy-cut it out and used a little foam tape to adhere it to the card front.


The steam and little hearts are from the same set and really finished off the coffee. The sentiment is from The Ton and I cannot believe I haven't inked it up sooner! Cute story - we went out to dinner Friday night. He met me at the bottom of the stairs with a cup of coffee to drink on the way. Does he know me or what?


Can't forget the inside! This sentiment is from the new Simon Says Stamp February card kit and is perfect for all things love and coffee.


Really, this is a super easy card to make. The coloring is what took the longest, from there it was just lots of stamping and gluing. And it's even a masculine card - woo!

Now, time to go buy some half-price candy to go with this coffee...LOL Until next time, Happy Stamping!
