Happiness is a cup of coffee.

Hello and Happy Saturday.  I have a bazillion things do do and what am I doing?  I'm playing with stamps and bits 'n bobs.  I managed to create 5 cards this morning, of course I'm a roll because I have to leave the house soon.  Here's my first batch:

I haven't inked up my Stampin' Up Coffee Cafe in much too long.  I teamed it up with the coordinating designer paper.  

I seldom stamp with my Memento Rich Cocoa but doesn't it looks great with the aqua?!

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  I have a bunch of crafty I worked on my bits 'n bobs pile.  I have so many little embellishments...I need to use them more often.  

I generally tend to be a clean + simple designer but all these layers make me a happy crafter.  The colors scream spring, don't they?

I spied the newest Global Design Project and knew I wanted to play along!


  1. So weird! I'm cleaning up in my craft room and I have so many "extras" sitting around on my table... and I was thinking I should just make a bunch of cards using them... awesome inspiration and maybe I'll play along! Back to cleaning though.. beautiful beautiful cards! I LOVE the layers! And how all of your bits and bobs seem like they are meant for each other!

  2. That's exactly what I did this morning -- early. Met up with a friend for coffee, and chat! Love your pretty coffee cards! And I do love the rich cocoa ink with the aqua!! Great cards. Hmmm...I should delve into my box of die cuts/embellies sitting on my desk, too! Have a wonderful weekend. Bev

  4. All the cards are beautiful with the cup as focal point and all the fun embellishments around it.

  5. These are all so pretty! And I'm loving that brown with the aqua, too! ;)
    Enjoy your weekend, my friend!

  6. Your bits and bobs are darling, and amy! your layering gets better, and better - how is that possible?! LOve the brown/aqua combo - but that fabulous herringbone paper: eeep!
