You Plus Me: Twitterpated with Perfect Blend

Happy Monday?!! Well, hopefully it's that start of a good week for you and me! When I ordered this set I didn't really know what twitterpated meant... all I knew was that it had to be love related based on the stamp set that it was with. Apparently it was mentioned in the movie Bambi. When I don't know something, I look it up and this is what it means:
Twitterpated (according to the Urban Dictionary)
1) to be completely enamored with someone/something.
2) the flighty exciting feeling you get when you think about/see the object of your affection.
3) romantically excited.
4) the ever increasing acceleration of heartbeat and body temperature as a result of being engulfed amidst the exhilaration and joy of being/having a romantic entity in someone's life.
I used the 'twitterpated' stamp to make my background - I love stamping my cardstock to make my custom designed papers. I used Real Red, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate ink... but it still wasn't enough so I added some Calypso Coral hearts to finish it off. It has been so long since I used Calypso Coral, not sure why... as I love that colour? I seem to be using it quite a lot lately. Probably since I'm not completely twitterpated with pink! Ha ha, wink, wink! =D

I had my husband in mind when I was creating this card since he seems to always have a coffee in his hand. I went to the 'Perfect Blend' stamp set for my coffee cup image. When I got that stamp set last June I never thought I'd use a coffee cup stamp set so much, but it is definitely well loved! 
I used the YOU + ME stamp from the 'You Plus Me' stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue. This is another set that is getting a lot of use and not just for Valentine's Day either. I stamped the coffee cup wrap over the sentiment and cut it out. It was too white, so I sponged a bit of ink over to make it more muted. I then stamped the center portion of the coffee cup onto a piece of Stacked with Love designer series paper and cut it out to add a pop of colour to the cup and it coordinates nicely with my background colours. Before I attached the cups, I wrapped some Baker's Twine and used a button from the Best Day Ever Accessory Pack from Sale-a-bration. You can see a closer view of the cups, I coloured with Smoky Slate Blendabilities Markers.
I linked the cups together like they are kissing, awwwwww :)
Here is what the inside looks like, which I stamped a bunch of hearts and arrows. The angled piece is for a gift card... for Tim Horton's or Starbucks perhaps! I added a sentiment made with the Alphabet Rotary stamp and added it to the pocket. "For the love of coffee and you".
I was so happy with how the first card turned out, I wanted to try another. This time I added a heart diecut before adding my coffee cups and used Crumb Cake and Rich Razzleberry inks! I thought they'd fit nicely into the heart shape - they did. I hope you like them and have a terrific day!!!
