This week's Brainwave Challenge over at Treehouse Stamps was to use these colors: Vanilla, pink, and chocolate chip. I decided to give you a glimpse of Treehouse's next release coming Sept. 1st! I adore this set, because I LOVE coffee! I stamped the cup and colored it in using my Copics. I added brown liquid applique to the coffee part but didn't heat it because I wanted it to stay shiny. I stamped the coffee cup again on a separate sheet of paper and used white liquid applique for the coffee part. I did heat that up and got it fairly puffy. I cut that little bit of "foam" out and glued it to the brown, unheated liquid applique. I just transformed my regular 'ole cup of joe, into cappuccino!
I stamped the "steam" and added white liquid applique and heat set it. I added a few rhinestones to the "steam." I also stamped a couple of coffee beans and colored those in using my Copics too. I added Crystal Effects to them and then cut them out. I nestled those on the side of the cup. The DP is Making Memories, Noteworthy collection.

Go check out what the other gals did with this color challenge!
