It's Bean A While - So Suzy Stamps

Hi Everybody,

I made a coffee card with the new So Suzy Stamps release

My stamp supplies:

I will show you that even it you mess up a bit you can get a decent card with a few tricks.
Lets get started:

I stamped the cup and spoon onto white card stock.

Stamped it again and die cut the cup and fussy cut the spoon.

Added some coffee stains/splatters with a stencil onto my card stock. The nice thing is, that you don't need to mask anything.

Marked where the spoon will be and cut an opening for it, so I can tuck it under the cup handle.

See, what I mean?

Glued teh cut out cup onto the card base, added the spoon as well as the Hello into the center of the cup. I also added some shadows to give it some dimension. and added the sentiment. I don't know if you can see, that the sentiment is not parallel to the card. I saw it immediately and could not tolerate it. But I had put in too much effort to start over....

So I took a stitched border die and lined it up with the sentiment (used a ruler to make sure it is parallel) and die cut it. Mounted it onto a Kraft card base and added some white gel pen accents to the coffee foam. The other thing that happened, when I ran it trough my big shot to trim it it got a smudge. No big deal, I just added some more drops - you see them to the right of the spoon. Balances everything out, so a happy accident!

You may know this already, but just in case you don't.... We have a new feature here at So Suzy's. 
Every month one of our DT members has a birthday you get on stamp with every order free.
This is Tracy's and Suzy's birthday month and THOSE are their stamps:

Happy Stamping!

This is sooooo cool or hot...whatever. The coffee splash, the spoon, the white reflections on the coffee combine to make this look delicious. So worth the time and trouble you took. And I dearly love that sentiment.
love the coffee cup and spoon, and that spill is amazing. the little bubbles just top it off :)

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....)

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters.
