SSD65 A Little Latte


*** If you are looking for my TSG Blog Hop post, please scroll down just a smidge***


Wow has this month ever flown by!!! I've totally enjoyed my time playing this month with the Skipping Stones Design Stamp Tramps!!! Thanks ladies for having me back!!!  You've made this month a lot of fun.  What else has made it so fun?  The fab sketches by Lea Lawson.  I know I'll be using some of her sketches again, that's for sure.  For my card, I've decided to use my fave set called "Funny Coffee".  I don't pull it out enough but it's been a long time fave of mine.  The funny thing is.... I don't even really like coffee.  Crazy I know.... I decided to flip the sketch to get the look I was going for. (although now that I look at my card, I could have kept it right side up. Oh well).  I've stamped the coffee cup from this set with Versafine Onyx Black and then used clear embossing powder.  I then stamped the cup again on DP, so that I could get the blue striped band.  Each layer of DP (Bo Bunny, Deja Views and unknown) has been dry embossed with my Cuttlebug embossing folders.  The main image (coffee cup) and the sentiment have both been popped up for a bit of extra dimension. 


We'd love you to play along with the sketch!! If you play along, make sure to link it up at the SSD blog or using the keywords SSD65 in any online gallery.

Once again, Thank you to Heather and the ladies at Skipping Stones Design for having me back!!!

Terrific card Angela - great job with this sketch. I don't like coffee either, though I love the smell of coffee and coffee ice cream.
