Friends, Coffee and Donut

Friends, coffee and donut are 3 happy words for me. What an abundant life when it is surrounded by friends who care and encourage each other. I am blessed with those kind of friends.

Coffee… oh I love good dark roasted coffee 😀 My husband actually introduced that to me since we got married. I was not a coffee drinker, but coffee he got have been so good! I feel in love with good coffee, strong coffee. Saturday mornings are our special time, drinking coffee together.

This card I made using Treats of Friendship stamp set, the new set on newest CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2. Cute cute cute set for coffee and donut lover 🙂

1504-se-C1616-Treats-Of-Friendship

I cut White Daisy cardstock for 2 card based, standard size 4.25″ x 5.5″ using Fiskar Paper Trimmer, then score them in the middle.

For the background paper strips, I used is Sarita paper packet, this pretty paper is retired, I love the ikat pattern for sure. I stamped the coffee cup with Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad several times on a piece of White Daisy cardstock. And I fussy cut 2 cups, a lid and the band using Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors. I was thinking to give some texture and I cut a piece of Sarita fabric (retired) and glued it using Liquid Glass on the stamped cup in White Daisy cardstock. I colored the coffee bean with CTMH Watercolor Pencil and wet it using aqua brush to give watercolor effect. Since it is a cardstock, need to be very careful with the flow of the water, do not want to be too wet.

The sentiment and hearts are from  new stamp set, Finding The Words. I stamped them using Lagoon, Cotton Candy, Honey and Gypsy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads. I finished my card with some sequins from the new Oceanside Sequins and Sparkle Clear Assortment.

How about some donut, my friends?

From the same stamp set, Treats of Friendship, I stamped the donut on a piece of Chocolate cardstock with Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad and fussy cut it using my Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors. And then stamped the donut again on a piece of White Daisy Cardstock with Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, fussy cut using Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors and colored the sprinkles using CTMH Watercolor Pencil. Using adhesive runner, glued the sprinkle on top of the chocolate donut and add them on the tag.

I love these Confetti Wishes paper packet. They have fun patterns. I cut a strip of diagonal pattern paper and attached it on the card using adhesive runner. Then I cut the tag out of polkadots pattern, cut some the Silver Shimmer Trim and secure them on the tag using this awesome Mini Stapler.

For the sentiment, I stamped it first using Honey Exclusive Ink Pad and then over-lapped with the Black Exclusive Ink Pad.

I finished my card with Silver-White baker’s twine.

My favorite donut is Crispie Creme but unfortunately, we do not have any of their shops close by. We have to drive at least 1,5 hour to get Crispie Creme! My second favorite is Amish donut. A giant, sugar glaze donut what it is. Once on a while we will go to our favorite Amish bakery on Saturday, not so often because it takes 50 minutes drive to get there…

Yah, now you can imagine where we live, way way from a big city 😀 We live in a country, a lovely little town.

Thank You for visiting today and I hope you can enjoy them as much as I do 😀
