Happy National Cappuccino Day!


post 1 of 2...click HERE for the Reverse Confetti November Release Blog Hop!



Happy National Cappuccino Day!  I threw this graphic out as an inspiration to the Fabulous Folks over in the Coffee Loving Papercrafters FB Group:


Always trying to be a team player (I didn't mention that I also threw out a donut challenge the other day on National Donut Day...) here's what I came up with:

cardstock:  recollection/110/white, stampin up gumball green  stamps:  hero arts G6071 absolutely awesome  ink:  fresh ink chocolate  other:  essentials by ellen folk heart dies, create a smile coffee chippie, kuretake gansai tambi

I loaded up a bunch of the brown and white kuretake gansai tambi watercolors onto a stitched circle die.  I added a vellum Folk Heart in the middle and used some stickles to add some focus on the heart....(there's a reason why I don't use the stuff...should have went with my gut and tried my gold sharpie but I do love the slight glitz of the stickles).  If I had posted this without the inspiration pic, you might not necessarily notice that you're looking down onto a cup of coffee so I decided to reinforce that notion but added the glorious Create a Smile Coffee chippie

My card was inspired by the current Freshly Make Sketches:



Honestly, I've never had a Cappuccino...maybe today I will!
