I used several stamps and dies from Your Next Stamp! The kitty and sentiment are from Coffee Right Meow; the cups are from Warm Christmas Wishes (stamps and dies); the smiley faces on the cups are from Fun Faces; and the wonky rectangle die-cut is Party Window Die Set.
My card began with a Distress Oxide background in pinks and reds and another Distress Oxide background in yellows, oranges, and pinks. I used the watercolour ink-smooshng technique for both. I stamped the cups and faces on the yellow background and then fussy-cut them close to the image. I die-cut the cups in white and then adhered the fussy-cut cups so they would have a white border.
I die-cut the Party Window from the pink panel, hand-cut a wonky frame in black and adhered on the reverse side, and then adhered the pink panel to the yellow panel. I coloured the kitty with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape. Lastly I stamped the fun sentiment and adhered three punched hearts. This card makes me smile, and I hope it will make my friend smile! Poor kitty wants coffee immediately and it seems the empty cups are smiling and laughing about it!
