Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge: Perfect Blend Friendship Greetings

 Happy Friday peeps!  Are ready for the weekend?  This is our last weekend before the big trip and we’re going to be running around having lots of fun (football for Chris, and ICE for Aidan and me), plus there’s lots of baking and packing.  Before all this gets started I wanted to share with you the card I made for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge.  I think I’m on Christmas overload so I decided to make a non-holiday card for this challenge. These colors are nice and warm so I immediately decided to use the Perfect Blend stamp set.  I stamped the coffee cup three times in Baked Brown Sugar Ink, on Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar, and Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I cut out the cup, lid, and coffee collar in the different colors with Paper Snips and glued them all together.  I used the greeting in the set and Cherry Cobbler ink.

The cardbase for the card is Baked Brown Sugar and I added a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used my go to stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge to stamp the different splatter and lines in lines (it kind of reminds me of coffee splatter).  I added some rhinestones and a piece of Season of Style Washi Tape in the top right corner.

This card is very similar to one I made for Halloween and I just naturally went with the same layout, love it!  This is such a fun stamp set and card, it would be perfect to send a friend a card to let them know you’re thinking of them on a random day.  It’s so fun to see all the different ideas that can come out of the same color selection, you should check them out.

Have an enjoyable Friday and hope you get some crafting time!
