I’ve been a little under the weather since returning from Orlando last week. With chest congestion and lots of coughing, I turned to the best remedy known to man – a chai tea latte from Starbucks (I requested mine with almond milk and an extra pump of chai). Thanks to Lydia who introduced me to this spicy treat – nothing soothes a sore throat better than this mix of spices in a hot drink. Inspired by Friday’s coffee cup from Starbucks, I made this card:
- Snowflake Showcase. The band of snowflakes is one of many great dies in the Limited Time Snowfall Thinlits Dies. If you’ve ordered them, then you love them. If you haven’t ordered them, then you are just postponing – and I don’t want you to miss out. I don’t know how many of these dies are left, but they will be gone when they are sold out – and this is a great set of dies. Here’s a look at the Snowfall Thinlits Dies:The dies coordinate with the Snow is Glistening stamp set (Christmas-themed) and Happiness Surrounds (Spring-themed). Here’s a look at this set:
- Building the Sentiment. I stamped this sentiment (LOVE IT!) from Happiness Surrounds with Shaded Spruce ink on Thick Whisper White and cropped it with one of the dies from the must-have Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. I added a 2″ punch of Shaded Spruce behind the cropped sentiment – provides a nice border for the sentiment.Here’s a look at the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies – so versatile:
- Unexpected Color Combination. As I mentioned above, I would have never put these four colors together without inspiration from my Starbucks cup. Inspiration is everywhere – why not in the cup that holds your chai tea latte? If you like this odd (but beautiful) combination of Poppy Parade, Petal Pink, Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce, please save this:Here’s a graphic I created to show the transformation of my coffee cup to my card:
Stamp Sets: Happiness Surrounds Papers: Shaded Spruce, Poppy Parade, Cherry Cobbler, Petal Pink, Thick Whisper White Inks: Shaded Spruce Accessories: Snowfall Thinlits Dies, Stitched Labels Framelits Dies, 2″ Circle punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
It’s fun to find inspiration in the things around us – fashion, home decor, coffee cups. I love these colors together – even though I would have never combined them without inspiration from Starbucks. <3
