Create with Connie and Mary – Morning Cup

Wow…another week has FLOWN by and it is time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We have another fun sketch for you to try!  I was happy my card came together pretty quickly!



I haven't used the stamp set, Morning Cup, in a LONG time!  So, I pulled it out because it seemed perfect for this sketch!



I like the nice, bright colors from the Sweet & Sour Specialty Designer Paper…certainly would perk you up!  (lol!)  I used a little trick with it…can you see?  The background is actually one of the patterns of Designer Paper, then I ran it thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder and sanded off the raised portions!  It gives a really cool technique!


My base card is Pumpkin Pie and I layered on Whisper White.  On top of it is the Designer Paper, and I wrapped the Pumpkin Pie 1 1/4 Striped Ribbon around to the back and secured.  I added an Vintage Brad on the front to gather the ribbon.  I stamped the coffee pot on another pattern of the Sweet and Sour Designer Paper and cut it out and placed it over the stamped image on Whisper White.  I colored the lid and spout with So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker, added some Sahara Sand to "ground" the image and stamped the words "Perk Up"  in Basic Black.  The Whisper White is layered on So Saffron and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also added a strip of the same DSP as the coffee pot along the right side as the sketch showed.


I think it would make a nice "get well" card for someone, don't you?


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team did this week!  They have some FABULOUS cards!

I really do like this card!  I love the sanded off polka dots; I will be trying that!     The way you cinched the ribbon and then added an accent piece is also super cute.  I am thinking of all the stamps that I can use to make this card.  Thank you for the creative idea!

Morning cup is one of my favorite sets.  So many cute things to do with it.  Love the way you used the ribbon and the vintage brad.  Thank you for sharing your creativeness!
