coffee cards




My first card is for the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge and considering how much I love making coffee cards it's not really a surprise that I turned the apples into take out lattes.  



And next up I used the Play Date Cafe colors (B and W and a splash of orange) and the Waltzingmouse Sketch.  

Materials: Paper Smooches Hot Concoctions, Tim Holtz ornamental die, Life Style Crafts dragonfly letters dies, Core'dinations card stock, Anna Griffin patterned paper,  Lasting Impressions Cashew Dots patterned paper, Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, May Arts natural burlap string

My Friend: Waltzingmouse Stamps Very Vintage Labels 4, Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It Loud sentiment, PTI Warm Happiness Too and die, Hero Arts classic fabric cling, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 4, EK Success border punch, orange patterned paper from stash, black card stock, vellum, Versafine black ink, water color pencil
