Perk Up!

I will be the first to admit that I am a coffee addict.  I love Dunkin, Starbucks, and McDonalds.  I love hot coffee, cold coffee, the smell of coffee, and these cute coffee stamps from Whimsy.  This set is called Cool Beans. I stamped it in a light ink and water colored it using Karin Brushmarkers. I used a white gel pen to add highlights. 
I used three sizes of the Rounded Rectangles die.  The middle one was stamped lightly using the hearts included in the stamp set.  I sponged a bit of pink ink over the panel as well.  The bottom layer uses this cute dotted paper from the Festive Desert Paper pack.

It is my husband's 52nd birthday this weekend.  We are headed out to dinner tonight, El Fresco style, to celebrate. Thank you for stopping by today!

Slimline Coffee Card

Good morning!
It is raining cats and dogs here, so I think it will be a "stay in your pajamas" kind of day!
I have another card to share using the Cool Beans set from Whimsy Stamps. I have been addicted to this set and decided to color the images on kraft card stock and my Polychromo pencils.   
I used glossy accents on the lid of the cup and the sunglasses on the other.  I used a white gel pen to add highlights.  I fussy cut the images and set them aside.  I used the new Slimline Film Strip die. For the inside pieces, I wanted to add a bit of color so I used the Comic Half-Tone Stencil and inks in orange and yellow.  
I assembled the card and used a paper edger that has been in my stash for decades I think! I adhered a couple of teeny hearts and tied a bit of rustic twine.  I popped up the coffees with Crafty Foam Tape. 
Have a great day today!
Thank you for stopping by!
