OWH Mid-Month Throw-down "Thanks a Latte"


Hello everyone! 

The OWH Mid-Month Throw-down is focusing on gratitude or "thank you" cards. I have been playing with this "Latte Love" stamp set from Fiskars lately so this challenge fit right in.  
You can find details about the challenge here:

After stamping and coloring the cup and steam, I cut them out and popped them on a wee bit of dimensional (using power tabs by Tombo which are thinner than the usual dimensional adhesive by Scotch.) 

The ovals were cut using Cricut's Elegant Edges cartridge and I used Martha Stewart's Arch Lattice border punch on some brown card stock to place under the coffee beans. The coffee beans come in the stamp set as a three inch border, so I just stamped a bit more to fill the space I needed. The sentiment is part of the stamp set as well. 

The cup and beans were colored using Spectrum Noir and to get the lines on the cup I used the blender pen to "remove" a bit of color. 

The red plaid paper was from my stash and the ribbon is gold satin. I used a gold pen to add a little faux stitching on the corner pieces. 


Thank you for stopping by!
:)
