Scrappy Mom Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge - "Think Warm!"

Happy Tuesday Crafters

It's time for the second Scrappy Mom Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge of the month/year. 

This challenge is to make a project that is warm or makes you feel warm that incorporates a Scrappy Mom Stamp.  Some examples are sunshine, love, coffee, etc.   Let you're creative imaginations flow.  

When I saw this challenge the first thing that popped into my mind was coffee.  So I grabbed my Scrappy Mom's Freshly Brewed stamp set and let the creating begin.

Once I picked which sentiment from this set I was going to use, I searched my Evernote, a program where I keep pictures of all my SVG files so I can easily search by a key word.  When I keyed in coffee the file that grabbed my attention was the KaDoodle Bug Designs Coffee Thyme Teddies file 'cause it made me think of warm feelings when someone does something nice for you and the little bear hugging the coffee pot went with my sentiment.   

I pulled all the pieces together on my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software screen to create a finished project.  Then I offset it and copied it twice.  Moved one off to the side to save for the top of the card.   I lined two of the offset pieces up so that they would be perfectly lined up when I flipped one of them.  Carefully moved the flipped copy till it was overlapping the other one just a bit and welded them together to create a card base.  I also created a little cut out to put the "You Perk me up!" sentiment on by cropping the main part of the coffee pot and then inset it to make it smaller than the coffee pot.   I filled the coffee pot with digital papers that I have in my software and then printed and cut them out.  

Here is a picture of my finished card.
