Coffee and a NEW DT Member – Karen Letchworth

Published by at 6 50 am under Uncategorized

Good Monday morning to all! Today is a good day. We begin with coffee (as all days should begin) and with a NEW member to our Design Team. Karen Letchworth is joining us and we couldn’t be more thrilled. She’s very active in blogland so I’m sure many of you know her well (more info further down). She starts us off with two lovely coffee themed cards that I can’t wait for you to see.

Karen has a beautiful vintage style that is always so dear to my heart!

I especially love the erratic machine stitching on this card, both around the perimeter and the zig zag stitches, too.

Karen very successfully combined multiple prints from the Gather at Home pad by Carta Bella.

She added in a bit of crimped paper for even more texture.

All the stamped images and die cut shapes are from A Cup of Java by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

Karen also used our Fishtail Sentiment Banners by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

Here’s another fun card using the same supplies as listed above with the addition of one more set.

Karen used Coffee or Tea? by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps for the glass coffee cup on this card.

Cutting the cup from vellum gives it the appearance of being a glass cup – love that!

You can find Karen’s post on her blog here.
