Espresso Yourself

Today is the 10th and is the 4th month of the Stamp What? challenge with the three collaborators you have seen many times in the past--Kelly, Jeanette and me!  Kelly came up with the challenge to randomly pick a Stampin' Up set and make a card with that set.  Get the dust off of those forgotten Stampin' Up sets! 

I randomly picked a Stampin' Up set off of my shelf and this time I went to the one shelf I have of wood mounted sets.  I randomly picked Espresso Yourself---one of my oldest and most loved sets!  

I stamped the mug and steam with Early Espresso ink.  I now remember how hard it is to line up a stamp over a stamped image--I had a practice a few times with the steam and cup!  I then colored with my Copic Sketch Markers and added some Wink of Stella on the heart and the liquid in the mug.  I think it is a Latte!  The background paper is from Moxie called Perfect Bland Delight and are coffee beans in the shape of hearts!  

Here is the inside of my card, with some beans stamped in the corner:

Please be sure to check out the other Stamp What? cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card. I hope you will stop back next month on the 10th to see our creations from dusty, old stamp sets!

Oh Barb... what a fun card and GREAT stamp set! I used to have that set; and I'm not remembering if it is one I purged or kept. But your card is a flash from my past. Fabulous job!

A wonderful card Barb. The coffee bean hearts are gorgeous - I'm not a great one for drinking coffee at cafes with friends, but I would love to be able to now! How perverse we are!
Stay safe
