Warm Cards

I missed the last Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, but had to make something for the current Fall challenge as I just got Stamplorations Coffee for all Seasons. 
Very simple card & a smaller size--perfect for a coffee gift card.  I tied on some twine & added a brown pearl over the knot.  Fun to find a matching sequin from a mixed pack I got last year.  Hard to tell, but there is a gorgeous shimmer from spritzing heavily with gold perfect pearls. 
I'm also entering Stamplorations Theme, Stamplorations Never-Ending Anything Goes, Allsorts & SSS Wednesday.

Next is my entry for ABNH.  The collaboration company for the month is CAS-ual Fridays & I immediately knew I wanted to use the wheat image from CFS Amber Waves.  I won the set years ago, but had only used one of the sentiments. 
Hero Arts Envelope Pattern was lightly stamped on the front of the kraft card--needed to be darker.  The wheat was gold embossed & then I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the Hero Arts sentiment multiple times.  This is the first time I've done double embossing--a bit tricky with a sentiment, but the MISTI made it possible.  I finished off with splatters of Distress Stain tarnished brass.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  16. Two charming cards in warm Autumn tones. Love the stamped sentiment "Coffee is always in Season" - it certainly is in my home and the wheat image on the second one reminds me of our paddocks on the farm when I was a child. Thanks for the inspiration and have a good week.
