Life Begins After Coffee!

Happy Sunday!  I have a card to share today using My Monthly Hero Arts August Kit.

I am playing along with The Paper Players.  This week is a color challenge.  When I saw these warm fall tones, I just knew I had to get my coffee kit inky.  The weather is finally feeling like fall. I embraced these colors and had a cup of coffee while I created.  

I started with some PTI select white card stock.  I created a stencil using the coffee shop die.  I used fossilized amber distressed oxide ink to sponge over the created stencil to create the background for my coffee mugs.  I added a few splatters with cocoa bean ink for effect.

I stamped and die cut the coffee mugs and colored with 
Copic markers.  I added some wink of stella to the coffee, steam, and whipped topping.  I popped up the cups with foam tape and arranged on my panel.

In keeping with the color scheme, I used olive twist card stock and olive twist ink to stamp my sentiment background.  I love this effect.  

I die cut a stitched sentiment strip and white embossed a sentiment from same set.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins. 

As always thank so much for stopping by!
