Today we are taking another look at the North Coast Creations March release! These coffee images are wonderful & so trendy! On my first card, I used the fabulous Warm My Heart set for the pair of coffees and the What’s Brewin’? for the greeting.
For the pair of to go cups, I stamped them several times on a piece of dp that had bands of patterns, fussy cut them and paper pieced them together. The little check ribbon is part of the paper, as well. I wanted a coffee stained look for the background so inked an embossing folder (it looks like ink splats) w/ the tea dye ink and pressed it to the white paper. It didn’t quite fill in the splats so I took a water brush and filled them in. I also took a small plastic top, inked it w/ the same ink, stamped it, then blurred the edges a bit w/ the water brush. The top & bottom edges were die cut using the largest of the ODBD Lacey Layered Squares dies. I used the ODBD Pennant die to cut the greeting flag.
I’m also adding these cards to Virginia’s View Challenge #14!

I used the same two sets for my second card but I used a more colorful approach. The coffee cup was stamped, masking as I went, 3 times using 3 different inks. The 3 colors of twine were wound around the brads to make it look as if the cups are hanging from the twine. The black cup was stamped, color added w/ Copics and fussy cut to add on top.
After die cutting the panel, I edged it in green using a Copic marker. I added a narrow black layer then die cut the largest layer using the ODBD Flourished Star pattern die. The edge was also colored w/ a Copic to match. The image at the very top was also colored to match and fussy cut.
