QFTD05 - Great Perks!

Today I FINALLY got the change to play the Queen for the Day challenge at SCS!!  This week the honour went to Coffeestamper aka Sue aka Perk who is such a sweetheart, so of course I just HAD to play!!!  I really couldn't decide which card to case so I kind of merged two together!  :)  I really liked the Coffee Themed Card because of the colours and the band across the bottom and of course I just HAD to make a coffee themed card for our Perk!!  The other one I liked was the Hawgt Farmer Sentiment card - I really liked this layout.  So I merged all the bits I liked together......and of course I added a big bow!!!  LOL!!!

I started with a base of chocolate chip, layered with white and some Bella Rose DSP.  Across the bottom is another piece of chocolate that I punched with a Threading Water Punch and then added some ribbon around it.  The vertical panel is more chocolate layered with more Bella Rose.  My feature panel has been stamped using JustRite's Just A Little Caffeine Set in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with Copics (E33, E35, E37).  I cut it out with circle nestabilities and matted it with chocolate and Riding Hood Red cut with Blossom Nestabilities and popped the panel up on foam tape.  I finish I added some tiny Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the scallops of the blossom die cut and of course a big bow to the ribbon and topped it with a red button and some silver cord.

Stamps - Just A Little Caffeine (JustRite)
Paper - Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, White, X-press It Blending Card, Bella Rose DSP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories - Large Circle Nestabilities, Blossom Nestabilities, Copics, Fiskars Threading Water Punch, May Arts 1" White Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Red Button, Silver Cord, Kasiercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

Adorable, coffee-inspired card, Kathy! I LOVE that big bow and punched edging across the bottom, and the pearls around the die-cut add such a nice touch. Great stamp and coloring job, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! It's always so nice to "meet" someone new out there in blog land.
Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi Kathy,

As someone who can't miss their morning coffee - I think this card is perfect! I would never have thought to put these colours together and yet they look wonderful - you certainly have a great eye for colour combinations. Perfect bow of course!!!

Great papers, beautiful card, terrific sketch. Your cards always look so professional, which is one of my favorite things about your blog.What I find particularly wonderful about this card is how perfectly you colored the coffee beans. They look good enough to eat right off of the card :)
