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

Coffee & Friends Warm the Heart

Hello all,

I hope your Christmas and New Years holidays were relaxing, fun and spent with family and/or friends. I was fortunate to have spent them with my mom, brother, sister, niece and nephews in Northern California. In fact, I'm still at my mom's house for another 5 days or so. We are having a great visit.

Before leaving home, I made several birthday cards for friends and family who all have birthdays Christmas week. My card today I made for my friend Martin, who is a Christmas Day baby. He loves to have a cup of expresso each morning to start his day, so I made this card for him using the Freshly Made Sketch #217.

I stamped the cup with Memento tuxedo black and colored it with Copics. The expresso and sentiment are stamped with SU Soft Suede ink. I fussy cut the cup and used dimensionals to raise it and the sentiment panel up on the rectangle panel.

Stamps: Be A Barista set by Reverse Confetti
Paper: SU Crumb Cake card stock, X-Press It Blending card stock, Lawn Fawn patterned papers
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copics, Copic Colorless Blender pen, SU Soft Suede
Other: Die-namics Rounded Stitched Rectangle and Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX dies, enamel dots, the Big Shot, dimensionals

Stop by tomorrow for my first post as a Guest Designer for The Paper Players.

Have a good weekend and thanks for looking in,
