I just got this set last week, & with all the gorgeous samples in the gallery I was overwhelmed!! Not sure what I wanted to do with it first. So....I went back to the sketch challenges, & found sc104 --figured it would work well with the size. Then I did Ashley's color challenge (cca1) --perfect for coffee!! Well, maybe not the sage, but I did manage to sneak a bit in!!
I also wanted to try the kissing technique, so I did that with the Paisley on the coffee cup. I still think it needs something --ribbon?? Not sure where I really could have put it, though. I did add Stickles to the steam, although my 4 yr old pointed out "steam isn't sparkly in real life, Mom". I had to explain that stamping isn't real life, lol!!!
I embossed the burgundy layer with the swirls background, but you can't really see it because it's so dark. Funny --I didn't want to add another layer so I put the whole card front through the Cuttlebug --well, now the inside front is embossed too --duh!! LOL!!! Now it's pretty on the outside AND the inside!
