SIP 1 - Getting to know you challenge
Welcome to Week 1 of the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge!! I am honored to be a part of this talented Design Team. Be sure to check out all of my fellow designer's cards and enter your card into the challenge!! http://stampinkpaper.com/
It has been rainy, rainy, rainy here the last few days, although somehow I did manage to fit a sunburn in between raindrops....oops.... Plenty of time inside though, to figure out my card. This week's challenge is a designer's choice. In trying to make something that reflected my style, I went straight to a few of my favorite things (now I have Julie Andrews singing in my head). I love to fussy cut, color and do several layers on my cards, so I incorporated all of those things......well, and caffeine, I love me some caffeine!! lol
I started with a base of Baked Brown Sugar, layered with a piece of Afternoon Picnic DSP. On top of this is a small piece of Baked Brown Sugar, punched along the edge with an ek border punch. I topped this with some First Edition DSP. The coffee cups and sentiment are from Perfect Blend stamp set, the cups I stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and fussy cut them, colored them with a pencil crayon. The band of the cup was stamped on Coastal Cabana DSP and fussy cut. The ribbon is the Coastal Cabana from the SAB catty. The sentiment is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar on very vanilla and mounted on a scalloped circle of Baked Brown Sugar. The cups and sentiment are all "popped up" with dimentionals.
Hope you enjoy my card, and be sure to enter the challenge!! Have a great, crafty week!!
