Kelly's Stamping Friends Birthday Blog Hop 2018

On a wintery day here in the Adelaide Hills I am celebrating Kelly Kent's Stamping Friends Birthday Blog Hop.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you could have come from Jenny Hayward.

I have chosen to feature a quick and easy card using the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  I chose the black and white piece of paper for the background which then makes the sentiment strip and coffee pots and cups stand out.

I loved that I could use contrasting papers from the pack and then
use the matching Coffee Cafe stamp set for the sentiments on the front and inside the card.  I also do like the effect of tearing the DSP instead of using the trimmer.

Stamp Set:  Coffee Cafe
Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Coffee Break Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Garden Green

Inside the card, again featuring a cute sentiment and tearing of the DSP.
