The Perfect Blend

Ya, it’s still cold and snowy here.  Sigh.  I’ve about had it with winter.  One of the down falls of living in Calgary, it’s winter for like 9 months out of the year it seems!

Today I have a fun card for the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge!  It’s been awhile since I’ve used my KK stamps so I thought it was time.

The theme is glitter!  There is also a sketch on the blog that I used as well.  You can find the deets on their challenge here.

The stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie called One Cup at A time.  I think I bought this one about a year and a half ago, because I wanted to start doing all these coffee inspired cards and then I kinda just forgot about it! I’m glad I brought it out again, and it definitely has been getting a work out.   I paired it with the Stampin Up coffee papers (I’m trying to use these up now, so you’ll be seeing a lot of coffee cards in the next few days).  This was a pinterest inspired card, which I altered a bit to fit the sketch.  I used a square of glittered cardstock for the challenge in a coffee brown color (again, something else that I’ve not been utilizing enough).  I also added a few Nuevo dots for a bit of texture. I also used the Stampin Up Hardwood stamp to ink onto one of the banners ( I actually had to crack this one open as I’d not even used it since I bought it last year) as well as the stampin up banners framelits.  I hope you like it, and don’t forget to play along in their challenge!
