Card Recognition

love....coffee


I've been sucked into the PTI anniversary fun and this morning I asked my handy husband for ideas on how to make an interactive card-- even made him watch a video.  And his response, "Don't you have a perforated blade?"  By golly I do-- so I swapped out the blade of my Fiskars rotary cutter and made this cute card, underneath the tab it says "celebrate today and always", but since my neighbor is going to use this for a wedding this weekend I didn't want to take it apart.  I used the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge, seriously think I could use WMS Say It Loud on every single card.  And since I've used red with kraft together I'm going to enter it in the Kraft Journal challenge.




Next up I have a coffee card using the Skipping Stones sketch.  I recently found the Hero Arts Have a Donut set on sale at my local Ben Franklin for $3.75, as many of you know I have a small collection of coffee stamps, but who can resist a mark down like that???  I added the PTI Warm Happiness Too sentiment which I thought worked well for the friendship Hero Arts challenge.

Materials: Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It Loud, PTI Rosie Posie, PTI Mat Stack Collection sentiment (hidden), PTI impression plate, PTI kraft and pure poppy card stock, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Distress inks festive berries and worn lip stick, Stampendous clear embossing powder, PTI Rosie Posie die and Tag it Sale #1, May Arts ribbon, My Minds Eye rhinestones

Coffee Card: Hero Arts Have a Donut, Hero Arts cling background, PTI Warm Happiness Too sentiment and steam, Spellbinders scallop circle, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz distress ink antique photo, Glossy accents, water color pencils, canvas paper, May Arts natural string, PTI kraft card stock

That coffee cup is too cute, Erin! Love how the whole card is stamped in shades of latte :) Your sketch card is adorable with the pops of red on kraft. Pretty layered roses and look at that awesome striped ribbon!

What a fun card, and I love the innovation on the zipper! The kraft and red together are perfect and would fit perfectly into the Kraft Journal this week, too, if you want to link up there! :) Great job, Erin!
