Well, of course when I found out that Kat Scrappiness was having a challenge this month of Coffee and Critters - my two most favorite things - I knew I had to play along! I started with one of my favorite die sets, the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies from the shop and some cute Doodlebug Pineapple paper! I love these dies when I want a simple background with just the little bit of character the stitching gives them. They are just the right sizes for all kinds of projects!
I knew right away I'd be using this awesome Layered Coffee Cup Die from the KS shop! It was a lot of fun to use them along with this pretty upcycled Coffee Cozy I picked up on my recent trip ... our hotel had the coolest coffee cozies! And this one had some pretty tropical flair so it was just right!
I picked up this adorable owl from Technique Tuesday and was excited to use her here! Loved that she had a crown of flowers on... probably placed on her head and she exited the airplane on her way to her tropical vacation! And those beautiful Hibiscus dies from Newton's Nook... got those a while ago also and was excited to use them with some watercolored paper from my stash.
When I was deciding on a sentiment, I finally landed on this simple die cut one from Stamplorations. I love making my sentiments so that the card will be the most flexible to send for any occasion!
And here's your inspiration photo!
Hope you'll play along with this fun challenge! I'm also playing along over at Double Trouble challenges where the theme is Summer and they're teaming up with Heartful Stamping Challenge's Dog Days of Summer as well so I'm linking up there too! And can't forget the Outlawz Twisted Thursday where the twist is Travel/Vacation! You should definitely check these two out as well!
Time to get ready for work and out the door! Please do come back tomorrow for some Cutting Cafe Inspiration! Thanks for stopping!
