Fusion: A little chocolate...



post 2 of 2 for today...click here for my Snowman Shaker Card!


The new Fusion Card Challenge has posted!

Isn't it fun?!!!


This week I decided to focus on the photo inspiration:

cardstock:  papertrey ink  stamps:  hero arts/a litte ink:  staz on black, watercolors other:  stampin' up embossing folder & twine

I love the Hero Arts A Little stamp set.  It has that great shape and a ton of words to pop in there.

Coffee is my favorite word but for today's card I went with Chocolate.

I did a few swooshes of color and kept the overall design clean & crisp!


Make sure you check out my teamies!

Isn't this the set that has bacon in the option list? Fabulous card. Love the pop of aqua, perfect for the inspiration.

Love the white embossed panel, and the sentiment is totally true!

Well, chocolate comes from a bean too, right?! You're close to coffee here! Really cute ombre sentiment ... great idea from the photo.

This is so pretty! I love that SU embossing folder! I like both coffee and chocolate so I combine my coffee with my chocolate and drink it! I consider it having my cake and eating it too! :)

Lynn said...

How about chocolate, coffee, diet coke? They all make life better! Love your card Amy.

Ashley Newell said...

This is so cute! I love the gradient on the sentiment panel and the awesome de-embossing, is that what it's called? I'm out of the loop.

Yuki said...

lauren bergold said...

love, love, loving this theme at FUSION! and your card is such an awesome take on the ombre!!! it's kind of a very CAS version of the sketch, too, actually; the twine is kind of a narrow version of the horizontal strip and the bow swaps out for the star shape! you are SO CLEVER, missus! <3

Shona Chambers said...

You certainly rock these inspiration photos!! I love your ombre colouring, its wonderful with the white and kraft. And I agree with the sentiment completely!!

Polka dots, ombre sponging and that oh-so-true sentiment...a winning combination in my books!

Heather North said...

I've probably said this a thousand times, but I love your style. The ombre swipes of ink to bring focus to your darling sentiment is so pretty against the clean crisp embossed white background with touches of tan to soften it. Lovely!

Katie Ann Brooks said...
