But First...Coffee KSS

I have been waiting a while for Maria to put out her fabulous new coffee sets, and now that they are here, I can't seem to put them down. Who could resist two of their favorite things combined together: stamping and coffee? The Keep Calm Coffee Mug is so much fun to decorate.

For today's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored card, I have  stamped the Keep Calm Coffee Mug using Stampin' Up Bashful Blue on all 4 layers, and then decorated it with wintery images from Icy Pond and Snowy Cabin. The images you see through the window are also from the same two sets. The sentiment is from Coffee & Friends.

The designer paper wallpaper is from Early Bird Collection by Bo Bunny while the woodgrain tabletop is designer paper from the Paper Studio and the window die is by Poppy Stamps.

Color Recipe for Mug

All layers for the mug and the lake were stamped with SU Bashful Blue. All the silhouettes were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black

Color Recipe for the Cabin

Layer 3 Stampin' Up Soft Suede
Layer 2 Memento Toffee Crunch
Layer 1  Memento Desert Sand

Layer 1 of the Roof Stampin' Up Bashful Blue on the top ridge of the roof only.

Color Recipe for the Pines

Layer 3 Stampin' Up Forest Foliage
Layer 2 Stampin' Up Old Olive
Layer 1 - Stampin' Up Always Artichoke

Skeleton Tree in window and sentiment - Memento Espresso Truffle

Today's card has been entered in the following challenges:

  I used a Bo Bunny scrap for the wallpaper and a scrap from the Paper Studio for the
  woodgrain tabletop.
