Here's what I have for you!
So much goodness here! I started with this awesome Latte Love paper from Our Daily Bread Designs... lots of fun patterns and pretty colors! The background and the cup were cut using papers from this pad. Speaking of the cup and plate... those were cut using the awesome Cups and Mugs die set. Love the embossed detail in the cuts from these dies! And those beautiful ovals... the Layered Lacey Oval dies are SO beautiful! I added these to my collection a while ago and just LOVE them! And I finished it off with that pretty Bitty Butterfly cut from gold vellum along with a few little hearts for steam and an awesome sentiment from the I Love Coffee stamp set.
I used the fantastic Latte Love papers again for this one. I decided it would be a shaker. I cut the cup in my top layer using the cup die from the Beverage Cup die set and stamped in Versamark and heat embossed another sentiment from the I Love Coffee stamp set. I used the Beverage Cup dies to cut the heart, lid and whipped cream pieces . I added acetate to the inside of the die cut cup and then I popped up my window layer with some foam tape (careful to place the tape all around the cup to keep my fillings where I wanted them) and before I adhered it I threw down some coffee colored dew drops and coordinating sequins.
I found this pretty background in my stash. My friend Jean Chaney (thanks Jean!) taught us at one our monthly crops how to use some fun foam to create stamps using various dimensional items... for this one, I used a doily die and pressed it into a circle piece of fun foam after heating it up. The impression stuck and I then stamped them randomly on my paper. Once that was done, I used some Distress Oxides and blending in some more purple and orange. You can reheat your foam to flatten it again, but I liked my new "stamp" so much I kept it.
I stuck with the orange and purple theme with all of my pieces. I built the cup using the Beverage Cup die set using some pretty plaid paper in the perfect colors! I added a vellum oval underneath and added my layers from there. I added some Nuvo drops, another pretty Bitty Butterfly, some paper flowers from my stash, hand cut a few banners and used one to stamp the sentiment from the I Love Coffee set! Yup yup... mmmm. These colors make me happy!
For my last one for this hop, I lightened things up a bit. I kept my background subtle and cut that beautiful mug from the Cups and Mugs die set from Copic friendly paper and colored it in with my Copics (R81, R83, and R85 I do believe... one of my favorite color combos from Copic Class with Jennifer Dove). Using various patterned papers, I cut some of the pretty flowers from the Pretty Posies dies (so pretty and might be gone soon if you love them..last I checked they were on sale.. I know I love them!) One of those pretty Lacey Ovals keeps it all together.
To finish it off, I cut a fishtail banner from black cardstock and embossed that cute sentiment from the I Love Coffee stamp set. I cut one of the Pretty Posies in half and tucked part under my oval at the bottom right and used the other half by my sentiment.
That's what I have for you today! I sure hope you enjoyed your visit here and that I've inspired you just a little!
