Stained Glass Coffee Cup

I have another card for the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This is an image that I found to be so beautiful when it was used on cards in the last hop so naturally I purchased it so that when the next hop came along I could make my own version of the card. All the stamps used are from Jillian Vance Design.


Usually with my arthritic hands I have issues stamping larger stamps but with the use of the MISTI I was able to stamp over it several times in just the exact same area and by that measure assured a good stamping. I stamped it in Memento Black ink onto white card stock. While I had it already on the MISTI I also stamped the sentiment in the bottom and the fall colored ivy leaves on the cup. I used a Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves ink pad to stamp the leaves.


I used a base card of yellow card stock which pretty well matched the colors I had colored my cup and outside border. And, all the stained glass areas were colored with my Bic Mark-It pens. I used my Crafters Companion glue pen to add the main panel to the yellow card base. 

Sorry for the poor coloring on the image. It was so dark outside that even the inside lights did not provide enough for me with one partially bad eye. But I am going to leave it as is and this way you can be sure it is handmade as it is not perfect. LOL But there was a lot of love and fun going into the coloring of it regardless.

Stamp sets from Jillian Vance Design used are:
Cup of Love 2016-014
Simply Said:Coffee & Jesus 2015-007

Well, we have been having so much rain with lots of lightning and thunder and so many times we had to shut the computer off  and unplug it so lightning would not strike it. We had lightning strike before and destroy a computer so we don't take any chances. Then for yesterday afternoon and evening we had no internet service. So it is good to be back up and running again. One sure misses it when it is not available.

Thanks for stopping in and for all your sweet comments. I so appreciate all of them.

God bless,
Verna
