OH, I had fun doing this card!! I had wanted to do a coffee and a tea cup for a while, and Tiny Tags had the perfect little "4 You" stamp! I also pulled out some OLDDDD stuff I'd been hoarding for a while, namely my Creamy Caramel cardstock (this tells you how long I've been stamping, children) and my What's Brewin' stamp set for those adorable coffee beans! Lots of cozy layers for fall, and I decided to mask and sponge the coffee cups because I like the 3D look of the color fading towards the center but I don't have alcohol markers in the right colors for this. I think it turned out pretty well, and it was a heck of a lot quicker than marker coloring anyway! I used my paper piercer to poke a teeny hole under the lid of the tea cup and pushed some linen thread through, securing it on the back with tape to make it look like it was hanging out of the cup. And don't the colors just SOUND like a coffee shop, ha ha? Creamy Caramel... Rich Razzleberry... Early Espresso... yum! I think this would be a fun card to give to someone along with a gift card to a local coffee place. Anyway, that's all for now - thanks for looking!
