Coffe Shop- Latte Love!

I know I haven't posted as much as I had planned this week-SORRY! I have lots of excuses, but mostly just been busy and lost my MOJO. You know how that is?! Anyway, finally got it back yesterday (just before running out of the house again- of course). Yesterday was the March release of's monthly Fan Club Gallery. If you are not a Fan Club member, I highly recommend it. Not only do they showcase the most talented fabulous members and their exclusive work, but there are other benefits as well. The most important, to me, is being able to post creations on Sundays (non-members cannot) and not having to have your uploads approved so they post immediately.

Anyway, each month when they release the theme, new artists (called Dirty Girls) and fabulous art they also offer challenges for the rest of us to join in. It is so fun! The theme this month was The Daily Grind so they suggested using either a coffee theme, or office theme, office prodducts etc. Well, that's what got my MOJO back... I love this Pun Fun stamp set and knew it is the only coffee cup stamp I own so this is what I came up with!

I hope you like it- it was so much fun! All supplies are SU. The card is not at all what I initially pictured, but when I got these papers out (Recollections, of which I have a second unopened pack still) the stripes immediately made me think of an awning at a cute little coffee shop. The card base is not one sheet folded in half, but a 1/4 sheet of naturals ivory with a 1/4 sheet of mellow moss over it (actually 4 x 5.25) and attached at the top side with the row of eyelets. The Mellow moss piece is actually scored right where the brown stripes are attached under the chocolate ribbon. Anyway, the cup is embossed and watercolored. Awning is only attached at the top edge so the bottom side naturally lifts away from the card. The scallops were created using the SU corner rounder without the guard on it. If you're not sure what I mean just ask and i'll try to explain or find a tutorial for you to view. For more details on products used, click here. Thanks for looking!
