….of coffee or tea!
At the beginning of this week I shared a card using the stamp set, Morning Cup. Oh, I have just too many "favorite" new stamp sets. But this is definitely one of them. (Actually, whichever new stamp set I have out on the Craft Room table right now is my current "favorite"!) I played around with it quite a bit last week making samples for my workshop display boards. There's so much that can be done with it, I could probably play around with Morning Cup to the exclusion of the rest of my stamp sets for a month! But that wouldn't be fair to the other sets now would it?
Enough rambling – here is another card that I made using some of Stampin' Up!'s newest Designer Series Paper sets, as well as this new stamp set. I loved the idea that fellow demonstrator, Sandra Grimes, had of pairing up the Coffee Pot with the Newsprint Designer Series Paper. What better combination than morning coffee and the newspaper! For this card, I placed those two elements on a background of a sheet of Real Red Patterns Print designer paper stack (doesn't that paper just look like old fashioned wall paper?). Stampin' Up! has put together a gigantic pad of papers in each of its color families this year, and this is one of the patterns in the stack.
To tie the elements on the card all together, I matted both front layers with Real Red Card Stock. Then I stamped the coffee pot on a scrap of the Patterns Print that I used as the background and cut out the center part of the coffee pot and adhered it to the stamped image. Nice!
A bit of a finishing touch with some Very Vanilla Brads and a thin layer of Basic Black Card Stock to frame the card, and it's done!
Here's the sketch for this card – a nice all around sketch if you want to show off some Designer Series Papers along with a favorite stamped image!
