Coffee time

I gifted a card using the Perfect Blend stamp set from Stampin' Up for the first time and it was very popular, so I decided to make a few more along that theme to have on hand.  I got a bit carried away colouring the coffee mugs in while testing the new Blendabilities and have just finished putting nine cards together.  Here is a selection:

All SU supplies: Perfect Blend stamp set (retired, but available on MDS); Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Whisper White and Crumb Cake card stock; Polka Dot Parade dsp (retired); Petite Petals stamp set and matching punch.
Two posts in one day!!! That's all folks!!


Yay, I'm finally posting something, so that's a celebration of sorts.
Just Add Ink have the challenge of adding "chipboard" this week. 
I love the "Yay" from SU Circle Card Thinlets and have used it many times, but wanted to try this idea for some time now and this seemed the perfect opportunity to put it together.

I have used the white card that backs SU designer paper to cut out 18 white and one silver Yay!  The card stock is the new Lost Lagoon - beautiful, but a bit lost in this photo and looking much darker than it is in real life.  "Celebrate" is from a retired Saleabration stamp set.  The trickiest part was getting the layers to stay put while I arranged them.  I am quite happy with the card but not the photography.
