I love the new Brilliant Butterflies stamp and dies from MFT Stamps and had to find a way to incorporate them into my coffee inspired cards. I stamped the butterflies in a couple color assortments and then used the Cafe All Day die from MFT Stamps to cut out a few coffee cups. The straws and cream are cut from white cardstock and the lid from vellum.
I grabbed my Distress Oxide Inks and the Square Extraordinaire stencil to create the blended backgrounds to coordinate with the butterflies. My favorite paper for blended backgrounds is Bristol cardstock, so that's what I used here.
The sentiments are from a couple different stamp sets (I'll link them at the bottom of the post if you're interested).
Here's my final version using a background die over a blended background.
Lastly, Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh recently recommended this sweet, small candle business, and I had to give her a try. Desiree sells coffee scented candles, as well as other yummy scents. She even created a custom scent for me....grapefruit and blood orange. You can follow her on Instagram @sunshineandtimbercandles or visit her etsy shop
. So, I ordered a few coffee candles from her. I'll be randomly giving away four candles, just because. No requirements, just (four) random acts of kindness. I might choose a comment, add one to an order, select an Instagram follower, or someone from our Facebook group. Who knows.....
Well, hopefully you've made it all the way to the end. Please be sure to head over to the Coffee Lovers Card Making Blog
