Another My Cuppa Joe Cards

In case you can't tell I really like this stamp set from GinaK Designs. I can think of about 100 people that I could send a card made with this set to. But as my kids say, I only make cards I don't give them away. Sad but true!!! Here is my latest card anyway :)

For some reason this image appears to be blurry, The photo I saved wasn't blurry, maybe it is my tired eyes.

I stamped the images from My Cuppa Joe on white cardstock and colored with copic markers. I got the coffee bag a little darker than I had planned but I think it is okay. I really wanted to use this background paper so had to leave my back layer a little larger than usual.

I colord the flowers in coral and brown to match the image and paper. I sponged around the main image with Adirondak Distress Ink, added a tiny coral ribbon on a clip on the left side and a large square brad at the bottom for balance.

All of the layers are mounted on River Rock, one of my all time favorite Stampin Up cardstock colors when I want a neutral color.

I love the font on all of the GinaK Design stamp sets. They are so fine and clear IRL but this photo makes it look hard to read. Must be the photographer........oops that would be me :)

Okay, I know that I am a perfectionist to a fault but I think this card needs something else on the right hand side in the middle of the card. Will have to look at it more tomorrow and see what I can come up with.

Have a great night, or tomorrow as most people I know are already in bed. Thanks for stopping by.

This is great. I'm a big coffee drinker. I like your colors and the flower just adds that certain touch.
