Welcome back to my blog again.
Twice in one week...I know...I am doing well *touch wood*
The real reason is I have been super inspired by this new suite of products that I ordered, the Coffee Break suite. I was TOTALLY undecided on this suite when I first saw it and then I fell in love.
I am not a love at first sight person. Things have to grow on me and this is a classic case of that.
Stampin' Up! release a few great videos when they release new products and there is a great video featuring this suite if you want a closer look here.
If you like my card in today's blog post I would love it if you could vote for it here.
This card was actually directly CASE'd out of the catalogue. This was a design featured on a 3D project and I have just altered it a bit to make it work on a card.
I love using the catalogue as a jumping off points and seeing where it takes me.
Here's a bit of a closer look. I love the gorgeous texture of the Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon combined with the Linen Thread. Crumb cake is still and will always be one of my favourites. I love the rustic/classic look of it.
I added some Garden Green enamel circles for a bit of a finishing touch and to add another element of texture to the card. I always love to play around with different textures and feels.
Finally here's the decorated inside of my card. I stamped one of the coffee cups and then added a coffee wrap from the die set in some gorgeous soft sky. I have tied in some Designer Series Paper and one of the Garden Green enamel shapes to make sure it flows with the design of the card front.
I hope wherever you are and whatever you are doing that you have some nice crafty plans for the weekend or some special time with family.
We are in for a rainy and windy weekend here but the best bit is that I have a WHOLE weekend of craft planned with friends. It can't get much better than that!
Thanks for reading as always and if you want to see any of the products I have used, scroll down to the bottom of the blog post where it will link you to my store.
