Lawn Fawn "Love You a Latte" Clear Stamp Set

Here's our mood board inspiration...


I was inspired by both the tea and coffee topics and decided to create two cards for this challenge...

"No one stacks up to YOU"

First up is this 6" x 6" card with a kraft card base and layers of lavender and Maja Design patterned tea cup papers.  I cut a doily for under the teapot and added a tea bag tag hanging out of the top. 


I gave the teapot and sentiment added dimension with 3D foam squares.

"May your cup runneth over"

Next up is this fun 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card of many layers.  I used CTMH Doodle Designs stamp to create the coffee cup ring background on Pink Paislee patterned paper.


 I matted the wood chip coffee cups and gave them added dimension using 3D foam squares again.

This was a great challenge and I had so much fun creating both cards!

Wonderful designs for you cards and great sentiments. Love the repetition of the coffee cups and the beautiful tea pot. The doily is just perfect for an English tea. Thanks for the edit of my card. I got a new light so we will see if that makes a difference. lol

Great minds think alike. Your tower of teacups is so much fun. I love the addition of the doily. Then you go and do another card too. You over achiever you.

What a great pair of cards! The first is so elegant and beautiful, but I'm loving those little coffee mugs with the hearts and colored bands! The coffee rings just add to the fun of the whole theme! Thanks for playing along with the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenges!

Amelia Breytenbach said...

Your cards are gorgeous Vicki! I love all of the layers and dies you used. Fabulous colors too.

Judy Woodland said...

Great minds think alike. I laughed when I saw that we both used that teacup die. I love what you have done with it. Your second card is super cute too...nice that you did two.

These are darling cards you've created. I'm partial to lavender and pastels, but the bolder colors on the second card are so cheerful. I really like the sentiment on the second. I guess I just really like them both.

Leslie Miller said...

Vicki, I love how you added the tea bag tag! Little things like that really make a card, as if those beautiful tea pot and tea cup dies weren't gorgeous enough. Beautiful colors and composition. And then you went and made a second card all fun and colorful. Love them both!
