Shopping Our Stash #255 ~~~ Tea for Two (use a coffee or tea theme)

I was excited to see this challenge as I won a gift certificate from Tuesday Morning Sketches last year and it was to Verve Stamps, it's a good job I had lots of time to pick as it took me several months to decide on a Coffee set of clear stamp, the co-ordinating dies and a word (coffee) die.  And here is what I made with it.

I'm still not with it when it comes to pack supplies for the cottage, usually I bring my two containers of versa mark mini ink pads to keep here for the summer, then I have all colours here, but no I only have black, red and purple...make a note to self to pack them. Although I have 6 paper pads with me I had to use a Christmas pack again for my patterned paper but I'm happy it works.

Since I didn't have a brown inkpad with me the coffee beans are dark roast, I love the Coffee die too.

I just added a simple sentiment and used the three Coffee words from the set. 

Thanks for joining me here today and head over to Shopping Our Stash for rules and check out the other coffee/tea project the design team have make for your inspiration. We have 4 new DT members this week so show them some love on their blogs. 


  1. Awesome make on a limited stash, girl! I can't believe how perfect that muggy paper is with the stamp set!!! Way to go!

  2. This is fabulous!! Black and red are one of my all time favorite color combinations and the coffee theme pairs so well with those colors! So striking!

  3. Wow! This is all kinds of awesome, Barb! Love the coffee word die and the patterned paper is perfect!

  4. I'm just impressed that you have a cottage! Love the project! Very nice layout!

  5. I would never have thought your background paper was a Christmas theme..wow!!
    Great card and congrats on winning the challenge :)
    I packed so much to bring to camp last weekend as I knew it was going to rain, but didn't create at all as we painted the kitchen instead, lol.

  6. Interesting that you have a Christmas pad at the cottage with you... but didn't that work out perfectly with the challenge... and the ink colours you had with you! Such a fun card with your Verve winnings!

  7. well as usual you've made something FAB out of what you had on hand... the best possible skill a crafty gal can have, missus! ♥
