Cathy Caffeine by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
It's Karen with you today... featuring a fun Ai People stamp set that was released back in August:  Cathy Caffeine Sku#4327.  I have a real 'thing' for coffee themed cards, so using Cathy was a given for me, as soon as I saw her!  I've made two cards to share with you today, both using the same stamp and the same sketch/layout - but two totally different looks:

When I am stamping images that are to be coloured... I stamp a bunch!  Usually on both cream and white cardstock.  In this case, I picked out my background papers, and then sat down to colour them both at the same time.  And when I find a card design that works for a particular stamp set... I'll usually repeat it.  So even though the end results are quite different - you can see the similarities.  Here are some close ups of both Cathys:


Given my passion for coffee themed cards, I'm sure this won't be the last time you'll see me using this cute set!  Oh, and the inside sentiment reads: " Coffee...the most important meal of the day!"
Happy stamping everyone!
