WOYWW, a couple of cute stamps and scraps

When I picked up this cute Amuse stamp of a "to go" coffee cup and it's matching greeting, I saw the cutest card sample on display. Since then I've been itching to duplicate it (complete with the Ranger white Enamel Accent on the lid). And since the paper piecing is so small, I figured I could (frugally) put some scraps to good use so I stamped it as many times as I could on one sheet of white c/s. I think the many extras will go into a pile to be sent to Operation Write Home ( a group that sends cards to soldiers). I see that going forward I will finesse the color combos, too, because I'm not sure my resulting card has enough contrast between the patterned paper and the c/s but it's a happy card as it is. (I'm especially pleased with the way I got the word "caffeine" placed just above the cup! Lol)
TFL!

Great card, idea and stamps - gotta love A Muse. I think the colour combo is great, but no doubt you'll do more and then I won't be able to choose between them!! Love that your work surface is a great big calendar - is it this years?

Lovely card - well done on the caffeine placement! I used to work on a big calendar, thinking it would be handy to have birthdays etc so obvious that I wouldn't forget them. However, I used to make such a mess of it that you wouldn't be able to make out anything written on it! x

This card is adorable. I think there IS enough contrast, but I know photos can be deceiving. Happy WOYWW.
