Final Coffee Card

I got a  new stamp set in the mail today and saw it had some coffee elements on it so of course I had to make a quick card design for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop using some of the images on it. It is a collaboration of several companies who went together to create this stamp set called Thinking of You by The Stamping Village. For each stamp set sold $5.00 will be given to Save the Children organization. They are on the front lines supporting children during the COVID-19 battle, delivering meals to families that struggle with food insecurity. Companies in this collaboration are Altenew, Avery Elle, Concord & 9th, Dare 2 B Artzy, Gina K. Designs, Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn, LDR Creative,  Picket Fence Studios, Pink & Main, Pink Fresh Studio and Studio Katia.


Sorry about the crooked line of the fingernail decals in the center. Arthritic hands don't work so well these days. I also added more of them individually to the front of the card. I used an old decorative scissors to cut out the panel and then placed it on a Recollections Printed Card Stock base. I colored in the images with a few Tombows that still had some inkiness. Most of mine are dried up now. The coffee designs were from Picket Fence Studios and the sentiment was from Avery Elle.

Thanks for the visit and to all of you who came by I wish you good health and happiness.

God bless,
Verna

What a great use of the small elements Verna - cold hands don't always work well either I have discovered... love that dramatic background card!
Stay safe

Lovely design!

Those tiny images make a cute panel along with the decal bling and sentiment. Love the background card base, too. I would have a hard time getting the strip of decals straight. Once they're stuck, they're stuck!

This is a lovely card, Verna, and I think that handmade cards do not have to be perfect. It is a perfection in impertection. Be proud of making this gorgeous piece. Kisses!

Super cute! Love how you used these cute little images.

Super cute! I really like the decals and think they are a nice touch.

I like all those tiny mug/cup images and this cute little design! I find I can no longer stamp anything straight and have the need to buy one of those t-squares that Jennifer McGuire uses to make her cards. I used to be decent with eye-balling things, but no more! I don't have arthritis in my hands so I think my brain tilted LOL

I had to scroll down to catch up with you! I'm loving all the coffee cards especially the gnome one. Your Christmas card is lovely too with the pattern paper tree. That is a fun idea.

Cute card Verna and I love the fun frame the card base leaves

Greta said...

Cute! Most of my Tombows are dried up, too, but guess that's to be expected after about 20 years!

Beautiful coffee card, Verna! Great use of tiny stamps and that's a great cause you supported! How did your hubby's big birthday go?

This is such a cute coffee card and I like that the line isn't totally straight.. I'd have thought it was by design.

This afternoon I worked up a quick design using the Artsystamper Four Leaves digital stamp and also a flower and sentiment from the Artsysta...
