CLBH Card Two

So. Been an interesting week. In between migraines and Mr. Mojo refusing to cooperate, I'd only made one card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. And I'm not even close to finishing commenting on all your fabulous cards, but don't worry, I'll get there! This morning, I did manage to make a second card for the hop though, and since you'd rather look at the beauties in the gallery, I won't keep you with my prattling.

Do you like ice cream? I wish I didn't (God Bless Skinny Cow brand...), but I do! Mint chocolate chip makes me a happy camper. I haven't had any since granddaughter's birthday party in April, however. You might be asking what in the heck does this have to do with a card??? Have a look. See if the colors don't just remind you of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream.


Now in real life, this really shows up a nice minty green color, and paired with the brown, makes a nice combination. The base is a Michaels white, and the cardstock came out of my scrapbox. I have a couple of coffee bean stamps, but for what ever reason, they refused to stamp nicely. So I said "to heck with that nonsense," and made a stencil out of one of my Silhouette's cut files. A little Ranger Potting Soil ink, and there they are. A PPP flag die, WPlus9 circles, MFT pennant die, and an RC label die with an RC sentiment. And a few PTI rainstones, which have picked up that brown color nicely (at least irl...). And now I'll stop writing and let you get back to the hop. Have a great week, and happy dances everyone.

I also love mint chocolate chip ice cream! Actually my favorite version is Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie but, of course, I can't have that very often... ;))) Thanks for giving me a craving for this ice cream, lol!

Yummm....chocolate mint...Okay, back to your card; smitten with it, my friend! Colours, the beans, the tag, the sentiment...rich with eye-candy calories! I think your mojo is definitely present, based on this gem! Should it disappear again, I suspect it may be hanging out with mine. Darn mojo! Your card makes me happy!!
Hugs~c

Marybeth said...

Oh, no two migraine in one week! It takes me one week to get over one. You poor thing, sorry!
Well you have mojo and a cup of joe! This coffee bean card is a wonderful CAS design Bev.
Still trying to see why I can only leave a comment when I am on the computer.

So nice to see that you've been playing in your craft space! These colors are GORGEOUS together! Love the contrast of your shapes - triangles, circles & ovals! So cool! Just like the ice cream is gonna taste shortly!!!

So sorry to hear about the migraines. Mojo might be down, but you wouldn't know it by looking at this beauty! I love that mint and chocolate combination, and your coffee beans are wonderful!

Angi Barrs said...

laurie said...

Love the java beans! What a fun card for the challenge!

Pam said...

Great card. Fabulous job on the stencil!

Kim Heggins said...

Love your card...but then I always do! As for ice cream, don't care for it at all, so you can have all the mint chocolate chip you like! Give me a good peanut butter cookie or a yummy green salad instead. I do love the look of those colors together, so perfect for a fabulous coffee card.

Christi Conley said...

Amazing!! Love that you used a Silhouette cut for a stencil - never crossed my mind :)

Jen Mitchell said...

What a great card to combine your love of mint chocolate chip ice cream and coffee! So clever!

Lynn said...

Mint chocolate chip - I absolutely see it. Fabulous card and I hope you are feeling better soon my friend! xx

Debbie said...

Great job on the coffee bean stencil! Way to go working around the stamp problem :-) Great card!

Bobby said...

Way to rescue the card by making a bean stencil. I would take me longer to do that than to remake the entire card. ;) I love the colors. I only wish I could eat Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. It was my favorite, too.

Becca Cruger said...

Coffee AND a pun?! It's got all the great elements. Super cute design!

Monika Reeck said...

Oh dear your design is cool adorable and love the color combo too
dont blame me if I COPY your idea with so many coffee beans this is the cute card I have seen today on the blog hop...love your card..
If you like to visiting me back (I would be so appreciated :) ), my card is #125, #187 and #232
hugs, Monika

Jill Norwood said...

I love mint chocolate chip ice cream too! And I can truly sympathize about the migraines as I have them several times a month! No fun! Your card is wonderful! I love the sentiment!!! Awesome stencil too!!!!

Aqua and brown? Such a lovely combo... and the sentiment is so great! LOVE it!

Cheryl said...

Beautiful color choices, and I love the design--especially the minty flags on the side.

Brenda said...

Sorry you have been suffering from Migraines Bev, they are debilitating. As far as your mojo, doesn't look like he went anywhere to me, your card is fabulous! I love that you made your own stencil, those coffee beans are perfection! Love those colors too, they are great together and yes, remind me of chocolate chip mint ice cream. I don't eat it, but I love the color of it. lol Oh and I do love ice cream, but really love it on a hot, sultry summer's day. lol Now if only I could eat it without gaining any weight! lol Hugs, Brenda

Petra Swart said...

So sorry to hear about the migraines, Bev!!! Hope you're all well at the moment!!! And surely Mr Mojo was all there when you made this cute coffee card!!!! And how clever to make a stencil - your beans look great!!! Definitely not ice cream weather here - will have to go for the coffee and a mint chocolate!!!
Have a great week!!!!

Kylie said...

YAY! SO fantastic! Love the idea of using the silhouette to create the stencil. I recently bought some "stencil" material to try and do the same. Your card is flawless!
