Hello spring and hello coffee! Are you ready for a complimentary cuppa joe?
Stretching my dies today, I used STAMPlorations Coffee Cup Silhouette die and cut the coffee cup and steam out of the frame.
Going through my hoard, I found this hello piece that works perfectly to offer a compliment! I thought the coffee beans looked like how you make coffee, put the beans in the top of the pot, press a button and magically coffee appears! How better to start your morning than with complimentary coffee!
Let go and create! My biggest problem with creating a background is cov ering it up. A patterned piece of paper, no problem to add your images and embellishments. A hand created background...which part do you cover?
Colorburst created the first layer of the background. The butterfly was stampped and embossed. A flower stencil created the mutted flowers in the background. Texture paste and a stencil made the circles on the right side. Versa mark and white embossing powder made the small white dots. Then distress ink made the edges.
Uplifting true stories about ordinary people's lives are what the Chicken Soup For The Soul books are all about. These short stories leave you with a smile in your soul when you are done reading them. This card is based on those books.
