Favourite Things

Favourite things is this weeks challenge over on the  Allsorts Challenge Blog and this card is just perfect for it.
I have used all my favourites here - stamping, embossing and colouring in  whilst enjoying  another favourite of mine - a steaming cup of coffee.

I started by creating a 5 x 5 inch square card blank from white Centura Pearl card.

I embossed a smaller white piece of card with the Swiss Dot Darice embossing folder. I inked the embossed card with Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen Distress inks.

I cut a black piece of card using the largest of my Spellbinder Label 4 die and stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Coffee Cup stamp set in clear embossing ink. I heat embossed this with Papermania's Sea Foam white embossing powder.  I did the same with the swirl.

I stamped the coffee cup from the same Justrite stamp set in black ink and heat embossed this with clear powder. Before fussy cutting the image, I coloured it using Oatmeal,Denim Blue, Pear Green and Cardinal Red Promarkers. 
I layered it all up and fixed the image with foam tape before finishing it off with a blue gem ( can't have a card without bling)

Really pleased with the end result, I have been wanting these Justrite  stamps ever since I saw Sue Wilson using them a few months ago and finally treated myself to them last week.

Hope you enjoy this too
