Hi everyone,

I here with another card from the Coffee First and the Arrows background stamp sets from Create a Smile.  I love this set.  I Love that they have large and small coffee cups and a few other little elements to make your card fun.

I used a few sets on this card.  First obviously was the coffee set and since this is how I feel about my morning coffee I thought I would have the adorable hamster from Lawn Fawn dive in to this one.

I used the Create a Smile "Arrow Stamp" set and used Hero Arts Soft Vanilla, Butter Bar and Pumpkin Pie inks to give the background an ombre look.  

I thought it needed something else in the top corner so I used the die from the SSS Happy Bubble set and cut it out of some shimmer paper from a SSS card kit.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the back panel and added the same patterned paper as the little speak bubble. 

I hand cut a piece of vellum and added that to the background panel to defuse the arrows.  I used one of the coffee cups  from the Coffee First set and stamped it in Memento Onyx black ink twice.  I coloured it in with my copics and some Wink of Stella and cut out just the waves and popped that up onto the other cup I stamped to give it dimension.  I added a little enamel heart that matched the colour for interest.  I used another piece of patterned paper to stamp out the #100happydays sentiment from the Happy Everything set Mama Elephant and added the banner ends and added a couple more enamel dots from Doodlebug. 

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
