Jessica's Craft Shaque 400 Follower Challenge!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!! I hope you are having a fabulous week!! The weekend is almost here...yay!! I have a card today to enter into my dear blend Jessica of Jessica's Craft Shaque's 400 Follower Challenge!! She has a couple of different ways to win some amazing prizes!! One is to create a project inspired by one of her projects. This is so not easy!! I chose a project of hers to recreate for the Blends Join Hands Blog Hop in January (see the post HERE) and it took me forever to pick which one to copy...she has so many amazing projects!! For this Challenge, I narrowed it down to three and then decided on one because it would let me use a set of K Andrew Designs stamps that I haven't used yet (gasp!!) :)

Here is my recreated project:


And here is Jessica's gorgeous card that I hope I did justice:


You can see Jessica's original post HERE!!


For my card, I started with a Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangles base. I adhered a Grand Nestabilities Rectangle on top, embossed with a 5x7 Cuttlebug Embossing Folder that I have no idea what the name is...I've said this before, but why, why don't they print the names on there?? The red background is a Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 10, and I used Core'dinations Gemstones paper. The adorable coffee cup is from K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea Time stamp set. I've actually never used this set yet...I'm not a coffee drinker so I never think to make coffee-themed cards. I used Kraft paper to wrap around it to look like a coffee cozy :) "Hot" is from Kristal's Coffee & Tea Tag-Along set.


The flowers are a mixture of Spellbinders dies, Flower Shoppe cuts and fabric flowers from my stash. "Love Ya a Latte" is from K Andrew Designs Coffee & Tea for You & Me stamp set.


I am just getting this in under Jessica's deadline. The challenge ends tomorrow so I hope you will join in on the fun!! Click HERE to go to Jessica's blog! There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the monthly Getting Cricky Blog Hop!! Hope to see you there :)

Oh, Lisa, I instantly knew which project you "re-created" as soon as I saw this on FB. It is super terrific and you did way more than "do it justice"...Love your choice of papers and embellies. So glad you had time to play and that you got to use the stamps for the first time.
You are super duper sweet!!!
Hugs, sweet Blend!
:O)

Oh I love this card....I am a coffee drinker and this card is so dang pretty!!! Clever idea to wrap the kraft around the cup (Makes me want a Starbucks...lol)...those flowers are gorgeous...and I too wish they had the names on the EB folders, but I just bought a label maker, so now maybe I could do that...if I knew the names...LOL!!

My sweet friend, this is bursting with a whole latte beauty! :o) The texture is gorgeous. It's amazing how you designed such an elegant, stunning design around a (treasured) coffee cup! The flowers are exquisite, as they're the perfect blend of elegance and whimsy. (You know that's a fave combo of mine!) I hope you see all of the loveliness this card entails, my talented friend. It's amazing, just like YOU. :o)
