Inspired By...

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm now part of the design team for the Inspired By...All the Little Things challenge!  Look for a new challenge every Saturday...we'd love to see you play along with us!  I love taking a photo and seeing how it inspires me in cardmaking and this one had so many of my favorite things.  I used a script stamp as a take off of the newsprint, the color palette (aqua/kraft/white) and the woodgrain elements for this coffee-themed card.  


I white embossed the French Script BG, paper pieced the one cup, sponged the sentiment with Crumb Cake ink and tore the "woodgrain" panel to give it a more rustic feel.  This could be used with a housewarming gift basket filled with treats or a coffee shop gift card could be tucked inside...so many possibilities!  

STAMPS: Delightful and Delicious (Verve), Holiday Treats (Verve), French Script Background (SU - retired).
PAPER:  ColorWays by Paper House, White, Kraft.
INK: Versamark, Early Espresso, Cool Caribbean, Crumb Cake.
ACCESSORIES: Rounded Scallop Frame die by Verve, Jute twine. 

Allison Kustiuk is the guest designer today, so be sure and stop by her blog and check out her fabulous card!

For more inspiration from the other designers and for details on how to play along, be sure to visit the challenge blog HERE.    Hope to see you in the gallery!

Congrats, Wanda! This card is gorgeous. Unless it had Hello Kitty on it, I don't think it could fit any more of the things I love... teal, brown, coffee, woodgrain, french script. So much goodness right there! :)
