Anniversary Coffee Cups

Hello, everybody!  I'm back again today with a coffee-themed anniversary card!  I paper-pieced the coffee cups and added some shading with my coloured pencils.


Digital stamp: STAMPlorations Latte for Two (this was a freebie at one point; thank you, Shery!)
Dies: STAMPlorations Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate - CUTplorations (used as embossing folder), Sue Wilson Mr. and Mrs.
Patterned paper:  Violet Bloom

The original digital image contains a pair of cups with a text frame, but I wanted just the cups, so I did some fussy-cutting and paper-piecing with patterned paper. I dry-embossed the white panel using a die (STAMPlorations Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate - CUTplorations) for some added texture.

Once again I am joining the celebration over at STAMPlorations for their fifth anniversary! Shery and her team are having a big party this month with lots of daily inspiration - have you checked it out yet?


The STAMPlorations birthday challenge is to CASE the STAMPgirls. I decided to CASE STAMPgirl Vicki's card for the second time (you can see my first CASE here).  I was inspired by the coffee theme, the large sentiment, and the card design!
