The Card Concept Challenge # 167-Cuppa Cocoa


Welcome my stampy friends!

We have a new challenge starting today here at


The nordic design on the coffee cups is what inspired
 my Clean & Simple Style card.

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space

 Here is my card:

I stamped the coffee cup onto some white card stock.  I stamped the image again onto some nordic patterned paper that I had in my stash. I fussy cut both images, then paper pieced the red pattern paper onto the first cup that I stamped with the white card stock.

My card sketch is from the current January 2022 SheetLoad of Cards sketch. Alicia at Call Me {Crafty} Al is one of my favorite You-tubers. You can check her out HERE and see how she designs her sketches! I chose my beautiful pattern papers from Stampin' Up's Painted Christmas collection!

I added some die cut coffee beans and some red gems to add a little pizazz!

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge!
I love seeing all of your beautiful creations!
