Saturday Coffee Cafe - Thankful


Welcome to the Saturday Coffee CafĂ©!  I’m super excited you stopped by!!

Speaking of super excited, I couldn’t wait to use this STAMPtember set; a collaboration with Simon Says Stamp and The Greeting Farm.  The minute it became available, I knew I had to have it for my coffee stamp collection (yes, it’s become a collection obsession!).  I’m weak.  I couldn’t resist. Even though I have a list of other coffee/tea stamps I’d like, I'm thankful I got this one!

For  my card, I created the background using distress oxide inks with STAMPlorations Leaf Prints mini stencil and Tim Holtz Speckle stencil.  I added a ‘plank’ made with kraft cardstock and embossed with Stampin Up’s Pinewood Planks embossing folder. Then,  I copic colored and die cut the images; finishing with the sentiment.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

(Green, Friendship, Fall; or Fall, Pumpkin, Autumn)
