Love you a latte

Normally I don't do Valentine's cards as I don't really need them, but I can make a couple, just for fun. It's hard not to get inspired by all those lovely cards in blogland and the colors associated with them.
I stamped my own background using the smaller stamps that comes with the Lawn Fawn set with the coffee mugs and sentiment I used on the tag. I inked the paper with spun sugar DI. The tag was stenciled with brown ink and I also added a few hearts before I attached the mugs, stamped onto a left over piece of DP. The ribbon was part of a Christmas gift and I used brown string.

This card is for:
Addicted to Stamps - #141 Love + a Stamp
Creatalicious Challenges - #108 Anything Goes + Option: add some hearts
Creative With Stamps Challenge - #11 Valentine
Color Throwdown - #428 Color Inspiration

    looks great and now you have given me a good idea. My eldest daughter loves starbucks so I gill give her a starbucks git card in a card like this!

    I like the tag and the wee teacups...they are so adorable.

    Fab background stamping and really like how these soft colours contrast with the tag, Plus how you followed the background stamped colours with the sweet little mugs. Have a fun week x

    These paperpieced mugs are very sweet and pop out so well from the vintage look of the tag! Your layering and the beautiful palette make this simple card very elegant and interesting. Your design is unique as always!

    Hello, Pia! I don't do Valentine's either except for my man! I do make a lot of heart-themed cards though! I can't help myself - I love hearts! Your card is gorgeous and I like the coffee theme! Your stamped background with the hearts and coffee beans is so cute!

    Fabulous and lovely card Pia. I haven't normally done Valentine or such cards, but last summer one of my clients asked for a love themed card for her hubby! Oh, I thought, there are people like that in Finland too. So nowadays I have some in stock for a case;-))m

    I'm kind of like you-- I get all inspired by the lovey-dove cards and inspiration photos. This is so fun: I always enjoy a play-on-words, and I always appreciate it when folks make their own paper! I really like the ribbon plus twin.
