full of beans !!

stamps: perfect blend, positively chevron & French foliage from stampin up!
ink: memento (rich cocoa), tim holtz distress ink pads ( mustard seed, spiced marmalade), promarkers
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, landscape 4x6 kraft card blank, corrugated cardstock
others: a brown button & some twine
I based my design on the sketch below. I decided to go for a coffee theme, with some wide- awake yellow and orange for the paper players colour challenge. I used a piece of corrugated cardstock for the strip across the card, coloured with orange distress ink. I added a backing of the stampin up! chevron stamp to give a vibrant burst of yellow. the coffee cup was coloured with promarkers, then suck down with foam pads to make it stand out. I stamped the splats onto the Kraft for an added touch. I finally stuck on the button and twine to finish.


  1. Combined both challenges beautifully! The coffee cup is a natural for the sketch! Thanks for joining us at FMS!

  2. Love this card! I still always see a prescription bottle instead of a coffee cup when I look at this stamp... (This could be because I am a pharmacist and I even see prescription bottles in my sleep!) But seriously look on page 164 of the Annual Catalog... the way they colored it, doesn't it look like a prescription bottle?! Anyway, it is clearly a coffee cup on your card. Nice job with both challenges! :)

  3. I love the corrugated strip of paper--it looks just like the sleeve of a to go cup! Love the chevron stamping in the background. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

  4. Nance is right, the corrugated paper does look just like a coffee sleeve, so cute! Great use of the colors, and thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players, Stacey!

  5. thanks for all the great comments, glad the corrugated paper worked as intended!! Mx
