You haven't had enough coffee until ----

Here is my card for Our Creative Corners colour challenge - to use yellow, pink, green and brown. Also for today's Feature Stamper challenge FS162 over at Splitcoast Stampers. Kristen aka "mommylvs2stamp" is today's FS. Here is the cute, yummy card of hers that I cased called "Bakery Window". The mugs are from the newly released stamp set "Coffee Brawd" from Totally Stampalicious, plus I used the words from a sentiment in that same stamp set. I redid the sentiment on my computer to fit my card layout. This new stamp set has so many fun sayings and I love the Coffee Brawd image....

I stamped the mug onto three different patterned papers (DCWV - Sweet Matstack and Mary Engelbreigt DP) and cut them out. Coloured the base and rim with chocolate chip SU marker. Punched out a SU scalloped border strip and sewed on my sentiment. Attached the coffee cups with jump rings. The pink buttons were attached with mini white brads.

Base card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 acrylic paper. I cut a piece of the striped dp (Cloud 9 Design - Baby Girl Stripe) and used the SU ticket corner punch. Sponged edges with chocolate chip. Matted panel with chocolate chip.Attached the mini white brads to the corners. I cut a 2 1/2" piece of white acrylic paper and matted it with CC. Placed over Dp panel and sewed lines across white panel. Placed the sentiment and mugs over top. Mugs are popped up and is the main DP panel. Applied gold stickles to dp.
Thanks for stopping by,
Happy Stamping and creating.
