Gina K and Rupa Shevde

I just love Rupa Shevde's art. She's a gal after my own heart. Caffeine! So, my step-Mom is a sweetie, and she sent me a birthday card lamenting sending me a purchased card. So, I thought, I'll send her a thank you card that she can related to. My Dad and she take a family member out to treat to Sunday breakfast. They go for coffee almost everyday.

So...what do you think? Will she like it? Would you? Here are some of the details: I used the chalk enhancer technique that Gina taught on Stamp TV to color the muffins and plate, I used Smooch for the cool beans coffee cup and the sprinkles on the muffins. I used SU! designer paper, and Gina K CS. Her CS is divine! The ribbon is Offray, and the metal buttons are from Colorbok. All ink is Memento rich cocoa.

I played the last VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) on SCS. I was very fortunate to win a Scor-Pal, and subsequently purchased a scor-pad and a scor-bug from Gina K. I used the Scor-Pal to create the diamond embossed base layer. I used the scor-bug to emboss the bottom strip of chocolate cardstock.

I hope you have a great start to your week. Don't forget there are tons of challenges out there!

Ta for now, ~ky


  1. I would love to receive this card! I love it! The color combo is awesome and the sentiments are cute!

  2. What a great card, Ky! I'm sure your MIL will love it!

  3. I think it's a darling card! Great colours - and that was the first GinaK set I bought! I think I need some Starbucks and a muffin now.

  4. I love this Ky!!! The paper piecing is so perfect with the Cuppa Joe set!!!


I adore comments. Make my day brighter and leave me some love!
