Coffee Torment

In previous posts I mentioned that I’m taking a break from coffee. I’m trying to kick sugar and I worked out I was having 4 coffees a day with 2 sugars in each which meant 8 teaspoons of sugar a day – clearly not a good thing.

It’s been tough and to compound my pain all I seem to be doing is playing along with challenges that focus on coffee – sucker for punishment I say!


All items on my card are from Stampin Up – Coffee Cafe stamp set, Early Espresso ink, Petal Passion DSP, Linen thread and Whisper White cardstock.

Using the ink and the DSP I sponged an ombre effect for the background piece, stamped and die cut the coffee cup then added it to my base with some dimensionals and linen thread for the final touch.

I’m entering this card in the following 3 challenges:

2 more detox weeks to go then I’m going to try some coffee without sugar  – wish me luck.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  3. Pretty card….like your ombre effect. Sorry you are going through the coffee torture. Have you ever used Truvia in your coffee? That’s what I use….two packets. I don’t think I could drink coffee black….so good luck!
