Diva Sketch Challenge #20

Well here we are at yet another Saturday … they seem to coming around alot quicker these days!

Firstly let me apologise for the lateness in this post. I had a busy day today with a demonstration (yes not a Stamp A Stack but a real life demo!) for friends today and I’m glad they felt the need to buy as much as they could on the retirement list! Of course I was happy to help them as well!!

Now onto the sketch ….

Now this sketch has lots of possibilities and you might just see one or two more in the upcoming week using this sketch.

I really want to spotlight some of the sets that will be retiring at the end of March and there is none better than to start with “Like it a Latte”.  I am sad to see this one go and really do hope it will be replaced with another coffee set I’ve seen in the USA Idea Book & Catalogue – surely they’d have to have at least one coffee set right??

I also wanted to use a different colour with this set. In the past its usually been the browns with a bit of Pretty in Pink or Purely Pomegranate so wanted to get away from that so went with Bashful Blue and Really Rust – I havent used that combination before but really like how well they do go togethdsc20-bashfulrustlatteer.

Here is my card and look …. can you see its done the same as the sketch!! I wonder if anyone will notice! Hopefully Alicia wont spurt her morning coffee all over her monitor and keyboard!

Stamps: Like it a Latte
Papers: Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue.
Inks: Bashful Blue, Really Rust, Creamy caramel, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals

With the cup I stamped it in Bashful blue and stamped the heart in really rust on a scrap piece of vanilla cardstock then cut out the heart and layered it flat on the cup. The froth is stamped onto Vanilla cardstock in Close to Cocoa, cut out then mounted using Stmapin Dimensionals.

I hope you like this little card and can you work out where I used the Pretty in Pink ink??

Have a greasinglelattesigt weekend

  1. Um, yum! I love this card! I love the way you used the coffee beans on the Bashful Blue!

  2. Hi my friend! I can’t believe how quickly the Saturdays roll around, either … and I just logged on and wondered … can it be that long since I had a good look at your blog … surely not!!! But … I can’t seem to see any dates on your posts – they are probably there right in front of my nose … just can’t see them. But … I love all the gorgeous cards … you have been busy! And … I really will have to try one of your DIVA sketch challenges! Sorry to hear you have not been well. I hope you can feel the hug from here! (((((((( Leonie ))))))))))

  3. Yum, I want to drink that coffee! Great job, Leonie! I think the Pretty in Pink is either under the greeting or on the Creamy Caramel CS (I can’t get a close up look of the card to tell for sure, sorry).

    I’m happy that your demo went great today. Good for you!
