Life in a Cup

Life in a Cup

Nothing tastes better to me in the morning than a nice cup of coffee, which is why I really love this sentiment (and entire Delightful & Delicious stamp set) from Verve Stamps. I made this card for one of Verve’s January Release challenges, a sketch challenge by Teresa Kline. I pulled several scraps of retired Berry Bliss DSP from my stash for the various panels. Instead of using a circular element, I stamped a steamy cup of coffee on white card stock, colored it with a pink marker, cut it out, and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

I bought the Bow-Easy in a local scrapbooking store in Virginia years ago, but it’s thanks to StampTV’s video tutorial that I am finally able to use it. The directions that came with the product definitely had me stumped!

Thanks for stopping by!
