TESC109 Tall Coffee

April 16th, 2010

Happy Friday!  I’m so happy to be feeling better and looking forward to my stamp class tonight!  I missed out on the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge last week, but I’m back for today’s really fun and different sketch.  I started out thinking I would make a mini tall card, but once I got to work with the images from Let’s Do Coffee I realized the card would need to be slightly larger.  I ended up with 8.75″ x 4″ – just a little shorter than a standard business size envelope.


Card base is Kraft cardstock and is layered with Real Red, Black and dp from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop 8×8 pad (love love love this paper collection!)  The size of the dp is what determined the overall height of this card which started out at 9″.  Two of the cups were paper-pieced and the others were colored with Copics.  All 3 of the large cups are covered with a heavy coat of Glossy Accents.  I used various punches, some buttons from my stash and some Zva flourishes for this playful layout.

I’m anxious to see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has come up with – let’s go check ’em out!

  • Melissa Sauls

  • Rachel Sztonyk

  • Taylor Van Bruggen – see her sample plus get the sketch and all the info to play along with us!
  • Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  I’m pretty sure mine will be better than the last one!  😉

      Oh my Jami this is just FABULOUS!!! I just adore how you used all the mugs on your card and, well, almost the entire stamp set! Cleverly done and absolutely perfect!

      Great minds think alike, Jami! I came “this close” to using that stamp set for a similar card. Everything about this sings to my heart! I can’t stop staring!

      I’m so glad you’re feeling better.
