Reverse Confetti: Coffee Trio




Hello and Happy Saturday!  I'm busy today working at CHA in Phoenix!  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and will share a bunch of photos!

I do have a coffee trio to share with you today!  I can never have too many coffee cards!  I inked up the Reverse Confetti Caffeinated Cups.    I love to use the coordinating confetti cuts and design  felt cup sleeves, it makes the design that much cozier.



This color combo makes it great for anyone on your card list!  I love the sentiments in the For the Love of Latte set.

Have you seen the Concord & 9th - Hello Lovely set?!  I knew I had to have it...I actually don't own many floral sets but there is something about bouquets or clusters of blooms that I just love.

I stamped the main image with Hero Arts Soft Brown Shadow Ink and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers.  I alternated with scribbling in with the lighter shades and then layering the darker shades with my watercolor brush + water.



I wish that you could see the Wink of Stella that I brushed on the pink blooms.  I also used the speckled stamp with  Delicata Gold.



Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

So Many Blends...


I LOVE a long weekend...I was able to craft up a storm.  This card came together quickly for me.  I combined products by My Favorite Things with the STAMPlorations - Nordic Knit Tag set by Kimberly Wiener.  I wanted to add a winter flair to my design and that nordic pattern was the perfect print!  Kimberly is a dear friend of mine, full of talent + kindness.

I used the MFT - Die-namics LLD Tea Party set with a retired sentiment set (I know, I can't believe MFT retired that!).   Do you see where I used the MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edge?


I'm definitely an equal opportunity caffeine drinker.  I love both coffee + tea.  My current favorite hot beverage is a London Fog Tea Latte with Coconut Milk.

I was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge:


Back to work for me...leaving for CHA on Friday!  Who else will be there?!
