I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Book Lovers Have the Best Stories

Hey again,

A second post here this afternoon. Here's a card for day 3 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge and also for the Fall / Winger Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I had loads of fun putting this together! Lots of coloring with my Copics, which I love. This color theme comes for the current Color Throwdown Challenge where the colors are teal, olive, rust and navy.

All stamps are from Concord & 9th. The plaid background is made using the Woven Stripes Background stamp colored with SU Old Olive, Night of Navy and Really Rust markers. It's stamped on a card base of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.

The other images are from the C&9th set called Daily Wear. The images are stamped with Gina K amalgam black ink onto X-Press It Blending card, and colored with Copies in this week's colors. After all of the images were colored, I cut the panel using a Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, which I layered onto mats of Old Olive and Night of Navy card stock. The coffee cup is cut out using the corresponding C&9th die. I decided that I needed some steam coming from the cup and this is done using a small heart die from my collection. It's cut from Really Rust card stock, which I then painted with Wink of Stella and added 3 rhinestones for embellishments.

For the inside of the card, I've used stamps from the C&9th Coffee Blend Turnabout set. The layers are Old Olive and Really Rust card stock.

Thanks for looking,
