Coffee, Christmas, Thanks

I wasn't really planning to enter the Coffee Lovers Fall Winter Blog Hop, but I noticed the Stampendous stamp in my box of things I'm selling.  Decided to use it again before it hopefully goes to a new home.
I stamped in Versafine & added just a bit of coloring with Copics.  The popped up frame is made with a PTI die & a beautiful double sided Echo Park paper I got in Indiana from the clearance bin.  The splotches from PRS New Day stamp set are stamped in Memento Toffee Crunch.  I lightly brushed the panel with DI since I didn't want it to be so white.  Now if only you guys were here to share a cup with me!

As you know, I love making Christmas cards!  This one started at the retreat in Indiana when I borrowed Brenda's PB poinsettia stamp.
I silver embossed it & colored with Zigs I borrowed from Maria.  When I got home I added the PB sentiment stamped in Versafine Majestic Blue, splattered with Zigs & added Nuvo Silver Moondust to the center.  I'm entering The 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Stamplorations CAS Cards, PB & More, PBSC, Inkspirational & CAS on Friday.

The W&W Color Combo Challenge inspired my thank you card.  I smooshed a watercolor panel with DO fossilized amber & faded jeans & DI victorian velvet.
Then I die cut W&W The Leaf Effect & attached it to a beige, textured panel.  The die cut sentiment is W&W In a Word: Thanks.  I used a sponge dauber to color the shadow with fossilized amber & the word with victorian velvet.  Both layers were stacked 3 high & I added Nuvo Glaze for shine.
The little branch included in the set was stamped in faded jeans & attached behind the word.  Finished off with some gold sequins.  I'm also entering JUGS & SSS Monday.


Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  20. So beautiful - I love each one so much! Your last card makes me want to try using negative cuts a bit more. Not sure why, but I seem to skip over this technique totally! I think it's time I change that :)
