coffee...


Hey friends!!  I'm sure lots of you know about the Spring Coffee Lover's blog hop that this going on right now.  I'm not a coffee drinker myself (my elixir of choice is a tall Chai all soy, no water), but I got into the spirit of things and made two cards using a fun "coffee" die from Verve, as well as the Verve set "One Cup" and two of the Viva La Verve February sketches.  My color combo isn't very spring-like as I was using what I had pulled out earlier and decided to go with a gold/black/white/kraft theme (both cards do have a touch of blue on them, though).  Adding this to the SSS Monday challenge:  Anything Goes.




First up is a card I made using VLV sketch #3.   I die cut the "coffee" from some Teresa Collins Studio Gold paper that was embossed with gold foil.  The blue striped and grid papers are from the same pad and were die cut using Spellbinders plain rectangle dies.  Layered them, stamped the sentiment from One Cup and added the coffee die cut.  The banner was die cut from gold embossed vellum and layered on some patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Memorabilia 6x6 pad.  Added a bit of black twine and adhered it to a kraft card base.

Have a happy day... I will be back later with the second card! 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and kraft; Patterned Paper:  Teresa Collins Memorabilia and Studio Gold; Stamps:  Verve One Cup; Dies:  Verve Coffee die,  Spellbinders plain rectangle dies; Black twine
