~ How Have You Bean? ~

Good morning and Happy Thursday!  It hard to believe that Labor Day has come and gone!  I still have a crazy number of home projects that need to get done!  And as the days get shorter and Fall marches on, I find myself making lists.  A list of things that need attention...  a list of things that I can put off until spring...  a list of things I can't put off until spring...  And it makes me kind of crazy!!!  But what calms the savage beast!  A nice cup of Joe...  and this card featuring the new Our Daily Bread Designs' I Love Coffee stamp set celebrates the love of Java!


SO we started with an ecru card stock base measuring 4.25 x 11 inches, scored and folded at 5.5 inches.  I added a 4.25 x 5.5 inch rich cocoa DP found in ODBD's Ephemera Essentials Paper Pad.  I chose a fun cocoa plaid (also in this Paper Pad set) and cut it with ODBD's Leafy Edged Borders Die.  I used a coordinating lace die from this set along with ecru card stock to create the under layer.  I just love this beverage cup, wrap and straw all created with the NEW Beverage Cup Die.  I opted to stamp the sentiment from this set with a rich read die, using a bit of tape to mask the coffee bean before adding a bit of cocoa ink with a marker and stamping.  I cut the panel out to create this fun banner.  A bit of baker's twine and button finish it off.  And did you notice the cut die cut cherry (also in the Beverage Cup Die set?  I added a bit of Glossy Accents to give it that lovely maraschino cherry look! 

So here are the new items you see used on this project...


 and a few old favorites...



Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time...

Blessings...
