a cup of cheer







Good Morning!  I've been wanting to ink up this Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin stamp set:

cardstock:  recollections/110/white, mft cement gray  stamps:  stampin' up july 2015 paper pumpkin  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics, hero arts gold spray other:  we r memory keepers polka ef, mft  die-namics stax rectangle, canvas corp clothes pin

It's not the set I was going to use for this card but decided to give it a try.  I masked the coffee cups and splattered them with Hero Arts Gold spray.

I was inspired by my friend Michele Ferguson over at Muse:

Muse



I CASE'd her overall design instead of the overlapping circles I used the stacked coffee cups (surprising eh?).  I kept the overall color combo but now wish I watercolored the cups.  I was (yet again) working against the lack of natural sunlight.  I think I might have to go back to my light tent..sigh.

I'm linking up to Paper Issues, Let Me Espresso My Gratitude!


I hope that you've been enjoying the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Design Team introductions!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
