Coffee Makes Life Mer-mazing

Just one more day and the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop will be finished! And then we will know which participants have won the random draws for the wonderful gifts from the sponsors. This is my seventh card in seven days (entry #861) and I still need to submit one more on the final day, which is tomorrow, Friday, November 19, 2021. 

I've had this stamp set in my stash for a while but have only used one of the stamps a few years ago. I decided to select a different stamp from the set - the cheerful mermaid in a to-go cup is so cute. I stamped the image, colored it, and then fussy-cut it. (There are dies but I don't have them.)

I selected a panel in green cardstock and added it to a white card base. On a panel of white cardstock, I stenciled dots in different sizes and colors, then die-cut the panel with a pretty border and adhered it to the green panel. I backed the mermaid-in-a-cup image with foam tape and added it to the center of the stenciled panel then stamped the sentiment and added it to the card. As usual, I decorated the inside of the card.

Be sure to check out the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! You may be one of the lucky winners.
