You may be just lucky enough to be chosen the Featured Stamper, and then be in the running for a Guest Stamper spot! So lets get on to the card!
When I saw this new Coffee & Tea Inchies set, I knew I would LOVE it. In fact, I think I will just keep this card for myself and not give it to anybody!!! LOL!!! 'Cuz I LOVE COFFEE!!! What do you think:
I love these colors together, too; the new SU Thoroughly Modern DP works perfectly with this color combo. I did a variety of paper piecing after stamping each image with Soft Suede. I used the dots from IBBG for one Dusty Durango coffee cup; the DD coffee pot, I freehanded the zig zag lines with a marker. The "i" was also drawn with a marker; the heart is from the 3-heart punch by SU. Nesties and circle punches made the layers, and the polka-dot Dusty Durango ribbon finished it off. You can barely see it, but I also stamped "coffee" in Fresh Snow (PTI) on the dotted DP. Mmmmm, I can smell my java brewing now.
