ATSM #340 Photo Inspiration Challenge: "How You Bean?" And One Coffee Birthday Card

**For my Coffee Birthday Card please scroll until (nearly) the last text of this post**

Hallo my Blogland friend, we meet again at Wednesday and it means a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (ATSM) this week we have theme: Photo Inspiration

Here is the Card I made, It was not an easy Photo Inspiration for me. I have no stamp with Earth/Globe Images...also I choose the color Blue and White for my card this time as inspiration. 

How I made my card:

1. I stamped the Lawn Fawn Jar with black Ink.

2. I die cutting some BEAN in dark blue and white. I added white gel ink on the blue BEAN and blue gel ink on the white BEAN. 

3. Arrange it all "in" the Jar. 

4. I also stamped the Cap of the Jar with clear embossing powder on a dark blue paper.

5. I then stamped some circle on the dark blue paper. 

6. Stamped the sentiment and added all on the white Cardstock that I have embossed with embossing folder. 

One more foto of my card:

I also made this card and like to share together here:

I took the Altenew Coffee Love stamp set and stamped the Images on a white cardstock, then I colored with the Peerless Transparent Watercolor. I also sponged the BG with Sunrise Stencil with yellow Distress Ink. The sentiment is PTI and I gave orange embossing powder on it. You can see the shiny of the sentiment here:

  1. GORGEOUS cards!! That navy and white card is so fun. I love the way you used the circle stamps on this. The coffee card is so pretty. I have that Altenew stamp set and have yet to use it. I like the fun sun rays!

  2. Both cards are fun, but I really like the sun ray coffee card design!

  3. Two lovely cards Monika. Your beans card is very cleverly done and love the sunshine background in your coffee card.

  4. Both are so sweet, I especially love the sunbeams on coffee card!

  5. Beautiful, Monika. But I like the second card more than the first. It is so cheerful and happy just like you. That little strawberry is almost edible. The coffee carafe is so so so cute and it looks real.

  7. Love both of your cards, especially your coffee one :)

  8. Super!!!
    Das ist auch wieder so eine tolle Karte, die Du immer wieder gestaltest!!!
    Ich bin in Eile, bin gerade dabei, ein Buch zu binden für die Enkelin.
    Darin sollen dann die Bilder, Aussprüche, ersten Briefe usw. die sie malt, schreibt ... gesammelt werden. Ich bin mal gespannt, wie es fertig aussieht. Ist eine Menge Arbeit.

  9. Great cards! I love the little strawberry next to the cup. I never think to add a little image like that.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. Wonderful cards. I love the coffee pot one with the sun ray background.

  11. What a fun card Monika and I love the punny sentiment! You highlighted those beans beautifully and they are arranged so well in the jar.

  19. Oh what fabulous cards Monika - you have really been inspired by the Coffee Lovers Blog hop. Love the blue and white card - that's stunning.

  20. Great use of the sketch Monika, fabulous card. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you joining in with future challenges too.

  21. Love both the cards, Monika. they are really sweet and cute.

  22. Two fabulous cards, Monika ! Love your take on the ATSM inspirational photo. It was indeed a tricky one ! Love your blue and white beans, so well organised in the jar ! Wonderful. x

  23. Oh, Monika, such a cool take on the inspirational photo! Such fun sentiment :)
    Love the second card too, so cheerful and bright.

  24. Great card Monika, I really love those jelly beans and the white circles in your background! Hugs, Gwendolyn

  25. The jelly bean card has a masculine feel with your choice of colors, but it’s actually a gender neutral one,you might know I appreciate that about a design. Great arrangement of the beans. I like how you added sunrays to your second card, for a summery look. Nice coloring, you captured a realistic look for the can with beverage, with some translucency.

  26. Two fabulous cards! The jelly bean one is really fun and the backgrounds are fabulous! Thanks for playing with Jo's Scrap Shack.

  27. Love your two cards. The sentiment on the top is the best.
    Thanks for joining us at Crafty Creations.

  28. Both of your cards are simply those black and white beans, so fun. And your coffee card is fabulous and so cute! Love the sunshine coming in at morning coffee, a wonderful setting!
