Merry Cafe ~ Christmas Card

Hello everybody. 
I had a great weekend at my first of (what will be) annual Stamp Camps held here locally.
It was great to kick back and be able to craft un-interrupted for the whole weekend.
Who would have kids as alarm clocks, no washing, no chores and being cooked for all weekend. It was the best!

Because of Stamp Camp I managed to get lots of crafting done and lots of new projects to share with you all here on my blog!
The inspiration was flowing and I am so excited to share it with you all.

Today I thought I would share with you my favourite card that I made all weekend. I don't actually know why I love it so might have something to do with my love of coffee!

I chose to be inspired by the Merry Little Christmas suite with the colour combinations of Old Olive and Basic Black. I love how the black cardstock layer really makes the accents on the card 'pop'. 
I did also use some Gold Wink of Stella splatters, but sadly that can't be purchased anymore (insert sad face here!)

I also had lots of fun playing with the Stampin' Blends again. They are fast becoming an addiction and are being featured on most of my projects lately. I just love them!
For the coffee cup I first used some Smoky Slate in the areas I wanted to be darker and then blended over the top with my light and dark Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends. I love the way it turned out.

For the sentiment I used a mixture of Memento Black stamping and then used some white heat embossing to add the 'Cheer' as an accent word.

To finish off I have embellished with a gold tassel from the Eastern Palace suite, a Boxwood wreath, some gold ribbon, snowflake and gems. 
So many different embellishments to make this gorgeous card come to life!

I hope you enjoyed this little show of this card and thank you so much for reading!
