Cafe' Flopsey--MFTSC91

I still love I Need Coffee Flopsey so much!!!! Apparently I'm not the only one--he seems to be sold out! Do check back often--he'll be back! I ran across this paper at Archivers and of course I had to have it--it's perfect with him!

My layout is this week's My Favorite Things' sketch challenge. Check it out here, and while you're at it, check out the newest My Favorite Challenge in the same thread. We have a new one of each every Thursday on the forum and use that thread for chatting throughout the week.

Flopsey is stamped on Perfect Paper Panels with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers, then cut out and popped up on 3M foam squares. My patterned paper is called Coffee Talk and it's by Flair Designs. Card stock is Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel. I think everything is pretty self expanatory. Flopsey's background element was cut/embossed with Oval Nestabilities dies and the Creamy Caramel run through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder--to match the swirls of steam from his coffee cup :) I used a corner rounder on the two outside corners and a border punch on the horizontal element. A few cafe' au lait colored brads complete the look, don't you think?

We hope you'll play along with the sketch--and My Favorite Challenge this week--there are prizes to be won :)

I'm so glad you stopped by today!

  1. MMMMMMM.....I can smell that coffee right now! CUTE paper, makes the whole card even better!

  2. I love the warm rich colors of this! So cute!

  3. Sweet! I love the warm, coffee-like colors! I can almost smell it brewing! (Why does it always smell so good but taste so awful?)
