Stamped Teacups Background Coffee Card


I squeezed in 9 cards for my goal of creating 8 cards for each day of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop because somehow I had forgotten that I bought this gorgeous Prima Finnabair stamp just for this year's hop!  Doh!  Well I just had to go traditional with it and do a china themed card.  I thought the cup would be beautiful as a background, so I cut the text off of the stamp with an Xacto knife and glued it to the side of the stamp so I could still use it.


I layered with a Prima flower over a Prima die cut doily.  I thought the natural yellows/browns from the burlap helped balance the starkness of the blue and white.  The blue ink is "denim" by Adirondack.  It is the best ink ever!  I mixed some with water and gave my card a splash.  I picked up this pack of tiny silverware just to coordinate with this stamp.  So sweet!  Thanks again for your visit!  Happy Coffee Loving Cardmaking & hopping.  :)  Click on my label Coffee Lovers Hop to see all of my coffee themed cards.

LOVE this card and the blue and white teacup background! Just darling.. with the blue doily and the little spoon.... so sweet. I've done that too... cut things out of stamps that I don't like there.. works like a charm!

Sara Barker said...

I agree that the browns and yellows of the burlap and ribbon set off that denim blue perfectly--it is a favorite clothing color combination of mine (I don't wear burlap, though). This is a lovely stamp and you've used it so beautifully on this gorgeous card! What a special touch that spoon is! Hugs!

Lisa said...

So very beautiful!! I do love the browns to offset the blue and white... it's perfect!

Verna Angerhofer said...
