I know that was a weird title but it caught your attention, didn’t it? Today’s Stamp Off challenge is to make a card of some kind of drinking. I had to think about this one for a while. I have the stamp set called Coffee Cafe but I figured Buffy would use that since she loves coffee. I had to a search through my stamps and found one that had a drink in it.
I used a few different stamp sets for this card. The drink is from Colorful Seasons. I also used High Tide and the sentiment is from Florentine Filigree. I also used a non-Stampin’ Up!® set. What?? I know! Blasphemy! I couldn’t find a solid sailboat image in my SU stash so I cheated a bit.
This winter has been brutal with lots of ice, snow, cold and wind. This card made me think of warmth, sunshine and peace. I could use that in my life right now!
To make it I first stamped the water in Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay ink. Then I stamped the sand in Crumb Cake a few different times using a stamp from High Tide. This gave it a little depth. I sponged the sky using Balmy Blue ink and then stamped the birds in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment and sailboat in Early Espresso. I cut the chair out of Whisper White cardstock with a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Set. I stamped the drink in Mango Melody and cut it out using the matching die.
Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made. We will see if my prediction for Buffy is true. That is one of the things I love about our challenges. We don’t share our cards ahead of time so it is a fun surprise for us too!

Susan this is such a stunning card. Your water and sand are spectacular and so realistic looking. I like your interpretation of this challenge very much.

Absolutely love this card Susan. Come and see me. We can have a drink or two. We have had three weeks of visitors and I have just gotten over a bout with bronchitis. Weather has been beautiful.

Susan, this card is perfection! I love the water and sand. Most of all, it makes me feel happy (and warm!).
Ahh, yes – I’d love to be sitting in that chair, right now! We had more snow last night!! I love your take on the challenge 🙂
