Hey crafty pals! Let's Chat! How are ya? I'm posting today about a new company that has some awesome products....and I finally got my hands on some of them! My card for today was made with stamps from Concord & 9th. I had the opportunity to meet one of the owners at CHA and talk to him a bit about their company. I'm really impressed, and their stamp images are very unique and cool. I ordered some up last week and they came super fast. I was sitting at my work table today trying to decide what to make - and decided to ink up this pretty coffee set. It's called Let's Chat....appropriately enough! You know I love coffee!!
I used some of my ginham paper stash (From Amuse Studio) with some pretty bright aqua paper...
The saucer, the leaves, the cup, and the coffee are all separate stamps. Then there is a separate stamp for the latte art heart! I stamped the coffee part in brown ink and then white heat embossed the white heart on top after. I put my sentiments in circles to continue the circular theme of the cup and saucer.
I gently inked the edges of my circles with Antique Linen Distress Ink and a sponge dauber.... Just to soften a bit. I colored my images with watercolors and a water brush. Kept it sweet and simple. Not too fancy. The Femme Frames dies make the perfect scallop background layer.
This card is nice and flat for easy mailing! Are you proud of me for not using twine and enamel dots? LOL!
Have a super wonderful fabulous week my friends!! I'm SOOOOOOOO excited because my city (Sacramento) is getting a Container Store finally! OMG! The Grand Opening is this Saturday! This makes me very happy. XOXOXO What's making you happy this week?
