Coffee... Coffee... Coffee...

I should really be unpacking... BUT I just had to make one more card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Why?! Well, because I love coffee, of course!! Ha!

For this card I used one of my most favorite stamps, Ellie Loves Lattes from Your Next Stamp! Isn't she the sweetest! 

 I stamped her in VersaMark and heat embossed her with some fine black embossing powder. I masked her and then using the Misti I stamped the word Coffee and the solid heart in a fun pattern. Almost like it's all that's on her mind. Ha! I took the mask off and then watercolored her using the ZIGs (still on my desk!). I got a bit distracted so the pattern on her skirt didn't quite turn out how I had envisioned it, but it's okay... she has coffee! I went back and added some yellow to the background to help make Ellie pop a bit more on the card and also to brighten up the card... it was looking a little more fall-ish. I used a couple of fun dies from My Favorite Things to cut the watercolor panel out and the black piece of card stock... Blueprints 15. Love this set of dies! I chose this fun paper from my last few pieces of SU!'s retired Have a Cuppa DSP. To finish it off I added some black twine and popped the whole panel up and adhered it to a white card base.

Now it's time for more coffee... 
Thank you so much for stopping by!

See ya next time.
