Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop

Hi there!!  It's time for another PTI Blog Hop!  This month, the challenge was to choose a color/sketch combo and create something based on it.  While I normally jump at the bright colors because they are my favorite, I wanted to use my new Scent-sational Stamp set (available September 15th, or by way of the Stamp-a-faire kits).  I just love the coffee cup image and sentiment.  I thought a more muted color scheme would work best.


Here is my card...  I stamped the coffee cup image twice and then cut out the cup and popped it up on foam squares.  The napkin is the pinked square from the Button Card die set, and the tiny red heart is from the Love Lives Here die set.  I used a scoring board to score lines in the card base rather than strips of paper as shown in the sketch.  I love the subtle texture.

Super fab! I love the "coffee" feel of it. Is that possible? For a card to have a coffee feel? Haha. Well, if it is, you nailed it.

This is great! I really like the scoring in place of paper strips.

I really like that you scored the card rather than used strips of paper. And this color combo is perfect with the coffee stamps!!
