Before we get onto how I created my card I thought I would share this with you all... I don't and never have drank Coffee or Tea. In fact I really don't  like the smell of coffee or the taste of anything made with coffee... So never get what all the fuss is about, lol..Strange I suppose to some of you but hey we all have little quirks... 
I created my background using a stencil and gesso coloured with Black ink.
I stamped the 2 images onto circle die cuts and used 2 colours of Memento ink- Cocoa Brown and Black to create some depth to the teapot image.
Some Washi tape, 1/2 a doily and a Red Die cut Heart were added to finish.

  6. You don't...drink...coffee.... *jaw drop* I've never met your kind before. ;) I like your card a lot. I first saw it and it reminded me of a picnic for some reason. Probably the checker print?

  7. I love that background...brings back memories of breakfasts with dad before school at the local diner -- it was always a treat! And as others have mentioned...I can't wrap my head around the no coffee thing. lol But then, people think I'm weird because I don't drink soda -- would much rather have water. :-)

  8. Your checkered background certainly stirs warm memories of time spent in cafes with my grandparents. A wonderful showcase of this release, and it has all the more impact given you're not a coffee/tea fan. Love it!

  11. This is fabulous, Debra! I love the chequered background. I also hate coffee and anything coffee related. DH gets all the coffee flavoured chocolates that are left in the box. Unless I'm really desperate for a chocolate fix - I have been known to nibble all the chocolate off the coffee flavoured chocs!

  23. Hi, Debra! I agree with all of the other commenters - this is such a fun and graphic card. I have never liked coffee either; but I don drink tea, but stick to the regular blends. No fancy stuff for me! LOL
