2 Birthday Cards for my Hubby (Theme COFFEE)

Today is my hubby's birthday ...yesterday I made this card first ..he loves his new coffee machine...also I got the idea ..make a birthday card with coffee theme. Here it is:

I stamped the COFFEE with white ink and gave orange color on the dark brown paper and stamped many tiny stamp on the white paper,  the color are from this challenge Colour Q #303:

Here is the card before assemble:

Here is the stamp sets I used for my card:

Another picture of my card:

Challenges for my first card are:

Sister Act #119: Anything Goes 

Simply Create Too #92: Anything Goes 

Simply Papercraft Challenge #11: Anything Goes 

Creative Finger Challenge #89: Anything Goes

Cute Card Thursday #386: Anything Goes

Paperminutes #395: Tee oder Kaffee

Then I think the card is TOO BUSY for a Man..also I made this  card number 2 for my Hubby´s Bday. And he loves this second card (yippiieeee :) happy me)

I choose the coffee mug image from Create a Smile and colored with copic marker. Make a Tag for the main Image and sentiment and stamp the coffee stainwith brown ink and some coffee bean at the other edge. This card I made for only 10 minutes :)

This is the Birthday Boy and his family (me and my two boys :) )

  5. Hallo Monika,

    Grüß deinen Mann, alles Gute zum Geburtstag.
    Sehr schöne Karten hast du für ihn gebastelt.
    Ich denke, er weiß dein Talent zu schätzen und ist mit den Ergebnissen, die du für ihn gemacht hast, sehr zufrieden.
    Die zweite Karte gefällt mir etwas besser, weil nicht so viel drauf ist.
    Bei der ersten Karte habe ich erst mal ganz genau geschaut, ob du wirklich alles gestempelt hast. Hast du!!! Klasse!!! Das war sehr viel _Arbeit, denke ich - oder???
    Genieß das Wochenende mit deiner tollen Familie,

  6. Your cards are great! I also bought my hubby a coffee machine for his birthday. Your picture is so lovely - you are a beautiful family! Jo x

  7. Hello, Monika! It was so nice of you to visit my blog - I was very happy to see your comment! Your coffee cards are wonderful! I think like your hubby - I prefer to second one for a man. I like the first one but I think either a man or woman would enjoy it! Happy Birthday to your hubby! What a beautiful family you have! And Wow, you have a lot of coffee stamps! You will be all ready for the next coffee lover's blog hop LOL! I hope you are having a great summer!

  8. You look so happy, congratulations to your hubby! The cards are gorgeous, Monika, you made good use of the stamp sets, I do love the second one too :)

    I live in Stockholm in Sweden, not so far away from Munich.

    Love and hugs

  9. Fabulous cards Monika and the photo of you family is Beautiful..Loz

  10. Both cards are great, Monika but my favorite is the first one! Happy birthday to your husband. Thanks for sharing a picture of you and your loved ones. You all looks very pretty.

  11. Oh wow--what an adorable family picture, Monika! My husband has fond memories of his Army time in Germany many, many years ago. Your stamped background is fabulous, but I have to say, the second card is a masterpiece! Love it's simplicity & perfect use of the images!

  12. Hubby usually has all he needs, so I end up buying something I want, lol. But for the both of us to use. He got a coffee machine about three years back. For his latest birthday I gave him a soda pop machine. I love water with bubbles, I haven't drunk this much water in years!
    Your second card is definitely suitable for a man. And those coffee stains MUST be from a man, we women don't mess that much:) your first card us more busy, but I wouldn't say it's unsuitable for a man. It's a true Monika design, using lots of stamps and no DP, it only looks that way:)

  13. so cute!
