Mojo Monday 227

I have been participating in the Mojo Monday sketches for quite some time and had always hoped to win one of the Verve stamp sets during a contest week, but haven't been lucky enough. Believe me, the competition is fierce...but in a good way because that just means there is so much incredible talent out there. For awhile now I have had my eye on a set called Better With You, so I finally decided to get my own Verve set and I just ♥ it! It has all coffee & tea phrases and images. It was so difficult to choose which phrase to use first! I stamped the coffee-ring stain with Close To My Heart Chocolate ink on Chocolate cs. I layered that on a Bamboo base and tied Dark Choc. Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around where the layers met. Next I used the java phrase stamp from the Verve set and made a background paper by stamping it in Choc. ink on Colonial White c.s. I layered that with Choc. c.s. and cut out the latte cup on the Cricut cartridge Love You A Latte. I topped the cup with a swirl of pearls to mimic steam. Finally I cut out the label on the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and stamped it with a saying from the Verve Better With You set.

Here is the Mojo Sketch...in the end, I was pleased with my interpretation a latte. LOL.
