Card Recognition

let's get together for coffee



I'm not sure why this card took me an hour to make. I love CAS cards and I love it when the card magically appears. For this card I stamped the coffee pot on pink with black ink, then I stamped it on white with black ink, each time paper piercing it out and then I stamped it on white with pink ink. After I finished the card I thought perhaps I should've cut out the handles on the mugs too... oh well. I'm using the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch and the Off the Wall Craftiness colors (Kim, please forgive me when I say again that these are not my colors, yet I keep making cards for you...). I'll also enter this in Hero Arts July food challenge. Did you guys know that those lovely Hero Arts hostesses are awesome at commenting on cards? They blow me away... every time. Thanks gals.

Materials: Hero Arts coffee pot and mug stamps, Hero Arts dot background stamp, PTI sentiment, Stampin Up purple & pink card stock, teal scrap card stock, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, versamark, Stampin Up pink passion ink, teal ink from Spotlight, Stampin Up black ink

Ha ha Erin, you crack me up! I am so glad that you continue to play, I hope eventually I will make a combo that are your colors :) I have a lot of new color combos I am trying so hang in there girl!!! Your cards are fabulous though! I dont know how you say they arent your colors cause you pull them off well! Thanks for playing and good luck!
