Ellen Taylor ~You are here
Coffee and friendship go hand and hand! My friends are almost always my muses. I have the bestest friends evah, and boy do I drink a lot of coffee and watch my flowers grow with them! Actually this year they planted and weeded my flower beds all summer while I recovered from my surgery. Lucky me!! See, I do have the most amazing friends!! So that is my inspiration for today's card.
Here is the how to....
Stamp one of the sentiments from the More Basic Greetings Set CL549 with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I stamped mine onto one of the circles from the Circle Shaker Frame Die DIE001-Z and embossed it with Imagine Crafts Clear Embossing Powder. Adhere it to the top left corner and cut the edges off.
Stamp Pretty Primrose D9350 with Memento Tuxedo Black twice. Once on the white mat and once on scrap white card stock.
Color the petals and stems with Copic Markers BG45-BG49-BG72 and G21-G24 and G28. Cut the second flowers out and set aside. On the white base, create a shadow at the base of the cup with Copic markers C00-C0-C1 to ground it.
Stamp Coffee Words E13237 with Versafine Toffee twice. Once over the stems of the flowers on the white mat and once on scrap white card stock. Emboss them with Imagine Crafts Clear Embossing powder. Cut the second one out, leaving the handle off. Set aside.
Adhere the flowers over the stamped ones on the white mat. I popped the blossoms up with pop dots.
Adhere the cut out cup over the cup on the white mat. I used pop dots in the center and score tape around the sides and the bottom to give it lots of dimension.
Die cut Border Duo 3 DIE019-V in turquoise card stock and sponge the edges with Memento Teal Zeal. While your at it sponge a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card base and sponge it too.
Adhere the border to the right side and embellish card with brown satin ribbon, rhinestones and a bit of lace to the edge of the cup.
Adhere to your card base.
Done like dinner!
I hope you get a chance to play along with us! Thanks for stopping by and have a most fantastic day!!
