Hey girl.....coffee themed cards

Recently I shared a blog post on the Gossamer Blue blog that was all about using the Gossamer Blue Life Pages stamps on greeting cards.  You can read the full post here so I'll just re-post some photos here on my blog for fun and keep it short and sweet today. 

It all started with with products selected from the March kits...
I came up with a card design that utilized all the fun patterned papers...then did some die cutting, stamping and paper piecing.
A fun set of four, pretty cards.
That real wood tape was a favorite from the March kits.
Oh and these daisy brads, gosh they are so cute.  My vintage typewriter to the rescue again for some custom sentiments.
The frame stamp and die are the creations from my good friend Heather Nichols at Papertrey Ink.  

Do you notice that I never make just a single card?  Nope, I rarely do just one card.  If I'm getting all the supplies out I might as well do a little production line.  How about you, do you build your stash up like this?  Let's chat....

These are really cute! I like the vintage flair. I haven't sat down to make a bunch of cards in a long time. I usually make them for challenges. I cleaned up my craft room last night, maybe that will be conducive to mass producing some cards or scrapbook pages this weekend!

I like to make more than one card when I am crafting as well. As you said if you have the materials out might as well as make more than one. Any way you choose to do it, card crafting is great fun!

Wonderful! So smart to do a few at a time! I need to remember that tip! ♥

I try to but I have a hard time putting "kits" together like you do! How do you decide what size to cut the papers? Love the color scheme and the vintage trim...the sentiment is the perfect touch.

I love these cards! I love the way you utilized each paper to include on your cards and they turned out fabulous! I usually make 1 card at a time unless I am doing a swap (which has not happened in forever) but I think I may try to do a few at a time like you do. You have a point.. if you are going to take everything out to make 1, might as well do a few! Thanks for sharing!
Hugs,
Jo
