So, here's my card... and my inspiration!


Not too long ago, my kids and I went to a Ceramic shop in town where you can pick out your ceramics, paint them up, and they'll fire them for you. Well, I started "doodling" on this coffee mug and this was the fun result -- just a little Italian villa overlooking some fields with trees in the background. This is a coffee cup I use quite regularly when I am stamping because it's BIG and I don't like trudging upstairs for refills!

So, I didn't have to look far for the stamp set I would use with this as my inspiration! I picked up Cottage Home from Flourishes so I had the home and trees feel and then I tried to match up the colors for a warm and earthy feel! The home was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored up with Copics! I used the Daffodil, Cool Neutrals, Flesh Tones 2, Spring Greens (plus YG63), and the Dusty Rose Collections grouped by Flourishes. For my shape, I did use the Labels 8 Nestabilities die by Spellbinders. Add a scalloped edge, a button and... bam! Done!

Want to see what the other members of the DT whipped up with their favorite drinks as the inspiration? Hop on over and see.....
