Caffeine Crazy Swap

i LOVE coffee...and tea...especially of course i signed up for this swap...2 spots....i went with the other Stella i colored and i'm very happy with how it turned out...the sentiment is inside and reads "Touch My Coffee and See What Happens!...

Touch my Coffee
Paper: really rust..summer sun..whisper white..homemade dp
Ink: printer..SU markers
Stamp: Stella ~ Touch my Coffee
Accessories: ribbon..buttons

the 2nd card is a revamp of a card i previously posted for a color challenge...i changed the ribbon...and it is interesting (to me) that it seemed to really change the card's look/focus...but hey i could be wrong...i was amp'd on coffee!

Caffeine Problem
Paper: early espresso..very vanilla..real red
Ink: early espresso
Stamps: Coffee Cafe
Accessories: ribbon..crimper
thx for safe/be well all!

i was doing some mock ups for a caffeine crazy swap i'm in @ SCS...and decided the "Stella ~ touch my coffee" digi stamp from Bugaboo would be perfect...and i'd get to practice my coloring skills...or lack there i worked on these cards on "World Card Making Day" i feel i really accomplished something!...
Stella ~ Touch my Coffee
Paper: summer sun..lavender lace
Ink: printer..SU markers
Stamps: Stella~touch my cafe
Accessories: paper flower..ribbon..CB EF D'vine swirls
i ended up doing 2 different color schemes...this is the one i decided not to use for the i'll post those in a few days...on this one i decided not to use the sentiment that came with this digi...instead i used one that reads "I don't do mornings..until I've had my coffee"...which my oldest dd says is "sooo you!"..i think i might just have to send it to my bff since i miss my morning coffee with safe/be well all
