Cuppa Chai with The Card Concept


The Card Concept has a great inspiration photo for you this week.


I noticed those chairs by the window right away and thought they'd be a 
great spot to sit with a friend and enjoy a cuppa chai. The next thing I 
noticed was the colors and the texture.

So that's what I went with



The stamp set is called Get Together from Verve Stamps. It's the
only one I've ever seen with a 'chai' word stamp and if you know me, then
you know I'm a bit of a chai addict so I had to have it!

I used some retired products on this one - the dsp, ribbon and the antique 
brad - I'm trying to use the things I have in my craft room before I add
 'too much' more to it. I say 'too much' because I just received an order 
the other day - BUT I did pass on ordering some more today 
(sad face here). 
I looked around the other day and realized I
have stamp sets that haven't even been inked up yet!!! Crazy!!!

Anyways, click HERE to see what the rest of the design team has come
up with to inspire you and I'll see you in the gallery :)


Happy Stampin'

  1. I adore that little bit of plaid ribbon. This card has such a warm and cozy feeling - perfect for the coffee pairing.

    1. Thank you Michelle :) After I coloured that mug I decided I needed to get a pink one in my collection soon.

  3. Great card. Love your interpretation of the photo. And good for you to force yourself to use up supplies and products you already have. I should be doing the same thing. 😂

  4. Oh, this is darling! Love your sweet little pink cup of chai. My hubby is a big chai drinker, too, so that's how the stamp came to be. :)
