Mojo 309-Given Enough Caffeine, I Could Rule the World

Given Enough Caffeine card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch and since it's Monday, I thought it might be fun to start the week out with some coffee--coffee themed stamps, that is!

I used Verve's Better with You set for my card.  I covered a kraft card base with a panel of dark brown cardstock at the top and a piece of dotted patterned paper at the bottom.  The "given enough caffeine, I could rule the world" sentiment was stamped on a cream panel.  After matting it on kraft cardstock, I adhered it to the cardfront.  I colored the set's to go cup image with Copic markers and cut it out, then used foam tape to adhere it to the cardfront.  I tucked a sparkly gold paper circle beneath the sentiment panel and a narrow fishtail flag strip beneath the cup to draw your eye to the image and finish the card.

Don't forget--since it's the first Monday of the month, it's also contest time.  A stamp set from Verve Stamps is up for grabs from the lucky contest winners, so be sure to play along.  Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for more inspiration from the design team and to add your own take on this week's sketch!

Materials Used:
Better with You stamp set (Verve Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa inks (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Early Espresso cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Kraft cardstock (WPlus9); gold paper (Target); Something Wonderful 6x6 paper pad (Teresa Collins); Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax die (My Favorite Things); foam tape


  1. Delicious! Love the monochromatic browns. Think I need another cup of coffee this morning!

  2. What a fun sentiment! The brown color scheme is perfect for this coffee card!

  3. I TOTALLY agree with this sentiment.... however I should be already ruling the world...mmmm. Love the CAS style of this card. Gorgeous!
