I originally planned to do a card with soft pastel scraps, stitch them together and go all shabby chic. But when I sat down to stamp all I could think about was coffee and the first pad I pulled out was this World Traveler collection of papers, so my theme was set.
I cut the strips of paper randomly, then pieced them together and glued onto a 4 x 5.25" piece of cardstock, sponging each panel with tip top taupe. The sentiment is from The Buzz and I added the coffee cup from Get Together above, then paper pieced it in coordinating papers. The steam is from the Coffee set and I stamped it on tip top taupe, then colored with a copic and a white gel pen. After a little stamp surgery, I used one of the coffee beans from the Coffee set to randomly stamp around my background, then finished off my stitched circle with a black mat and black liquid pearl accents.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful start to your weekend!
