What's Perking?

I guess I've really been in a coffee kind of mood lately! ;) This dainty cup is from Hero Arts' set, What's Perking, available at i {heart} papers. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Couture Cardstock's "one sheet wonder," a 150lb white cardstock perfectly suited for one layer cards using Copic markers.  Oh, let me tell you, this stuff is a dream!  Nice, saturated color and NO bleed through!

This clean and simple layout uses Blessings (CCPK08) cardstock from the monochromatic family, A Rose By Any Other Name, punctuated by a lighter weight layer of charcoal card stock (CGBK05), a few black rhinestones and a sheer pink blossom.  The flowers on the cup were given a layer of Glossy Accents to mimic glazed enamel, along with rhinestone centers for more dimension.  The green of the cup and the ribbon ties the whole design together.

I don't know about you, but some hot coffee in a pretty cup just makes me happy!  ;)


  1. Love your card! Please visit me at my blog too.

  2. Love you card girl! And oh yes, my cup of coffee in a pretty cup just pleases me. :-) Have a super day!
