Special Coffee or Tea?

Grande half fat mocha caramel machiato one shot extra hot no whip please.

I have no idea what I just wrote but it sounds like something you'd hear being ordered at a Starbucks. Mine would be a lot simpler - Grande chai latte with coconut milk please.

Whatever your preference, on your birthday you definitely deserve a special coffee or tea - afterall it's your birthday so treat yourself because calories don't count on your birthday! (they really don't). 

I used some retired products on this card but there are so many coffee themed stamps out there that if you're looking for what I used I know you'll find something similar.  

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Shenanigans stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays. Next I stamped the coffee cup from Stampin' Ups retired set called Perfect Blend onto the card base and onto some retired papers that I'm working my way through. (I linked below to a SU coffee set you can order - it has a set of coordinating dies too). I used the Archival Black ink from SU. I paper pieced the cup together, added some shading to the lid and to the base with a grey pencil crayon to finish it off.

Now I want a chai latte with coconut milk - extra hot please!

What's your preference?
Coffee or tea?

You can check out the challenge HERE and then why don't you make yourself a cuppa and create a card to play along.

Happy Stampin'

  1. I love your CAS card! It says it plain and simple for anyone who has a Birthday and loves coffee with friends. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday. Hope to see you again.

  2. This totally caught my eye with the wonderful large sentiment. And the way you created a bit of shadow/grounding for the cup down the card front. I love this.
