Keep Calm And Drink Coffee

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

You know how you have those sets that you order and as soon as they come in the mail you swoon over them but life happens and for one reason or another you can't seem to get them inky?  That's how I've been with my Coffee set from Verve Stamps.

Being on vacation this week I have been able to get a little more stamping time than usual and what's the first set I reached for when I got a chance to play?


I was also able to play in a few challenges!!  The sketch is this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge but I flipped it so I could highlight that gorgeous paper pieced coffee cup!  The color combo is this week's Color Throwdown which is perfect for St. Patrick's Day but sadly I do not have any Irish-inspired stamps.  I wanted to use the free digi set that Verve Stamps is offering right now but I am still a girl without a printer.  My husband tells me we should be getting one soon and trust me it cannot be soon enough!

I have been hoarding this Rockabilly designer paper for years!  It retired from Stampin' Up! forever ago but it's the perfect paper for a masculine card so I've held onto it and it fit perfect with this color combo.  My family is full of coffee lovers like myself so I'm sure I will not have a problem finding a recipient. 

I wanted to dress the card up a bit but with masculine cards that can be tricky so I opted for a few gold sequins and some Crystal Effects in the coffee cup to make it look like there is some yummy coffee in that yummy cup. 

It's hard to tell in the picture but both the white sentiment panel and the coffee cup are popped up on dimensionals which gives such a cool effect.  I am usually so critical of my cards but I have to say I am digging this one. :)
