Well, I'm DEFINITELY needing a Morning Cup of coffee today! My husband woke me up getting ready this morning, usually I just sleep thru him getting dressed. And, then my mind started going on all the things I need to do before leaving for Convention next week! My poor blog has been suffering from neglect! I have several things lined up for my Blog the rest of the week, then NEXT week is the Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! I know you'll enjoy that! Of course, I haven't even STARTED my projects for that! lol!
I started by using Technostamper's Monday's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge (TSSC130). Then I used one of my favorite sets from Stampin' Up!'s new catalog…called Morning Cup! I love the little sayings in it. Perk up would be a nice greeting to use when sending to a friend to cheer them up! I took my colors from the new Sunny Garden Designer Paper…nice BRIGHT cheerful colors! I did tone down the base card by using So Saffron instead of Daffodil Delight.
I added a strip of the Sunny Garden floral print to the left side of the So Saffron base card. I ran the Poppy Parade piece thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder, then added the Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon around it and tied with a knot. I stamped the stack of cups in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, then carefully used my Stampin' Write Markers and AquaPainter to color them with Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand and Peach Parfait colors. I added the words Perk Up! in Chocolate Chip ink. The Whisper White was layered onto Chocolate Chip. Finally, I wanted some bling to "perk up" the card and used a couple of Stampin' Up!'s new adhesive Rhinestone Jewels…I LOVE them!
This card just makes me HAPPY this morning…but it is time for another cup of coffee! I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!
