Another Kanban Cafe and a WINNER

I'm having tons of fun with this new Kanban "Cafe" set! Today I paper pieced the coffee mug rather than coloring it. I did Copic color the coffee and cream, and added a few shadows on the mug image. There's a few sparkly Spica Glitter pen swirls in the coffee as'll have to believe me on that one...they're hard to see in the photo.

This paper pad is just great too...My Mind's Eye "A Beautiful Life." I really appreciate MME papers...they seem to have a depth of texture and dimension that sometimes seems to be missing in other papers...maybe because they have a distressed appeal about them. All of the My Minds Eye goodies at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store can be seen HERE.

Here's a closeup of the mug and sentiment that is included in the stamp set. You can also see a bit of the Prima "Trinket Collection" blossom, this one from the "Botanical" set. I'm working on a little gift project featuring these Prima Trinket blossoms...perfect for a last minute gift for a teacher or stocking stuffer...coming soon!

A tab of May Art's Striped Twill and die cut Spellbinder's "Nested Pennant" sentiment flag finish this run design.

All supplies (minus the Copics) from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

And...a winner! My blog chose the winning comment for last Saturday's Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Packaged and Ready to Go...
