On my first cup of joe, I used the fabulous Warm My Heart set. Looks like your perfect to go cup from any of the name brand coffee places. I stamped once on white, once on kraft and once on red/while polka dot paper from the ODBD Patriotic paper collection then paper pieced them together. I added a little white on the kraft with a white Prismacolor pencil and some baker’s twine w/ the tag attached. The background was stamped w/ the ODBD The Earth using the peanut brittle ink and the little red stars from the Shine On set. The large star was die cut using the Sparkling Stars dies, the greeting stamped on top and fussy cut little heart added.

My next jolt of java, uses the wonderful What’s Brewing? set. For this card, I went with a pastel on black look..sort of how it looks when the coffee houses write the specials in chalk on a blackboard. I stamped the images w/ white pigment ink then used a combo of 4 different pastel embossing powders…sort of a painting w/ embossing powders. Some of the parts, were done separately, fussy cut and added on top.
I added a die cut frame on top, some brads at the bottom (they were white, I colored them w/ Copics to match), and added some pink dots around the frame using a pink Souffle pen. The outer layer is from the ODBD Chalkboard paper collection.
