What's Brewin'?

LSC184 whats brewin 3

Finally--I was able to do a SCS challenge today!  You can see the details here.  It gave me a chance to use one of my fav Crafty Secrets sets (they're really ALL my favs):  Tea & Coffee.  I started with the coffee cup stamped on Kraft CS in Basic Brown and added the words with the retired SU Rough Edges Alphabet.  I added color & shadows with markers in Pumpkin Pie and Sahara Sand.  The whole image was mounted on PP & Chocolate Chip, diecut with my Nesties.  The background paper was a Scenic Route RAK from Dawn, which I distressed using the DTP method with my Close to Cocoa stamp pad.  Then I stamped all the coffee-themed words from the stamp set randomly in Really Rust, and the coffee beans in CTC.  So much fun making my own DP!!!  I mounted it on a CTC card and added grosgrain ribbons & bows.  The little highlight on the cup is a white gel pen!

Jen's Peppermint 2

Sweet Jen sent me a nice card filled with some MFT Peppermint & Lavender images!   THANK YOU, JEN!!!  I'll try to post her card tomorrow!  So of course, I had to sit right down and make a little note card with Sage Shadow cardstock along with some Wild Asparagus DP.   The image is colored with markers & watercolored with ink in various shades of green, Almost Amethyst & Sahara Sand. I added a little border on the inside of the card so that it would peek out from under the scallop edge on the front.  It was stamped in Almost Amethyst using a border from Inque Boutique's Stitch Fun--another great set!

Thanks for visiting & have a great Friday--I need to ice 3 dozen cupcakes, so I think I'd better get a move-on!
