CIC - Theme ....

....  Hello!  Gosh, this week has flown by and we're here back at Cupcake Inspirations - CIC#343 where this week we have a fun theme for you - AROUND THE WORLD.  Don't you just adore those cute characters on the cupcakes?  I decided that I'd go with the world part of the theme for my card:

Stamps: Your Next Stamp - Coffee Rings, Thanks a Latte, Java Geek; Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz - Schoolhouse
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Early Espresso, Crumb; Versamark
Dies: Your Next Stamp - Coffee
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Early Espresso, Crumb Cake; SU DP - Crumb Cake


I had lots of fun with this card - actually I think I've made it for me!!!  I've used several different sets on this card.  The layout is based on this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#219.  I made the base from dark brown card.  I used Crumb Cake card and design paper for the next layer.  I used Versamark to stamp coffee rings and stains on the card.  I used the computer to type up words on the white panel, cut them to size and added some coffee beans.  I stamped the globe on a scrap of white card, cut it out and attached it to the panel.  The nerdy coffee cup was stamped on design paper and white card and adhered using dimensional gel.  To finish the front, I die cut the word coffee three times in dark brown card, glued them together and attached them to the card.  Sometimes I seriously think that given enough coffee I could rule the world!!!  On the inside I used more stamps from Java Geek - I absolutely love that the word "coffee" is made up from chemical elements - makes me so happy!  These stamps satisfy both the coffee freak and the chemistry nerd that is me!  :))

I absolutely adore your fun and oh-so-true coffee card! Glad to see that someone else played with words rather than images (my tags are definitely 'out there', though!). Love this!
