Stampin' Up A Day Without... Nothing Better Than Card

Today's card features Stampin' Up Nothing Better Than Stamp Set.  This is fun set to play with that creates super cute cards.  The sketch from this week Freshly Made Sketches.  The color scheme is from this weeks Color Throwdown.

The card front is a panel of Smoky Slate card stock matted to a panel of So Saffron card stock.  I adhered a strip of Stampin' Up Subtle DSP to the Smoky Slate panel.  

I stamped the chocolate image from Stampin' Up Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set with Early Espresso ink and Soft Suede ink on a piece of Basic White.  I stamped a coffee cup with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and So Saffron ink on Basic White.  I stamped a cookie with Early Espresso and Soft Suede ink on Basic White.  I die cut each image with Stampin' Up Love You More Than Dies.

I cut small strips of Basic Gray cardstock.  I stamped stars with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink in random fashion.  I adhered a die cut to each square.  I adhered the squares to the card front with Stampin' Dimnensionals.
I stamped the sentiment on a small strip of Basic White with black ink.  I cut each end at a diagonal.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.
I adhered the card front to a Basic Gray card base.

The inside is a panel of Basic White card stock.  I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso ink.  I stamped a chocolate image in the top left corner using Early Espresso and Soft Suede ink.  I stamped a coffee cup with black ink and So Saffron ink.  I stamped star images with black ink.

I adhered the Basic White panel with a panel of Smoky Slate card stock.  I adhered the layers to the inside of the card base.
