Coffee and You!

Hello Friends!

There's definitely a chill in the air here in Texas this week!  After 70+ degrees for the Christmas week, this cold air kind of feels right, ya know?

My card for the week features a cup of warm goodness made from the Coffee Talk Collection.  I stamped the large mug onto some of the blue patterned paper from the coordinating paper collection.  I then sponged on some blue Broken China Distress ink to create some dimension on the mug, then added sparkle with Cinnamon Stickles on the swirls.  
The beads around the mug are actually quite dimensional, although I wasn't able to capture it in my photo.  I used Viva Decor Glass Effects Pen on each "bead" around the mug and the height of each drop remains exactly as applied, it's very cool!

The little spoon is another stamp from the same collection that I stamped onto aluminum pie tin material and die cut with the coordinating die.  This is a fun way to add texture and some contrasting elements to your projects - the tin die cuts perfectly without any problems.

Hope you're all staying warm and getting some holiday-recovery time!  Until "next year", have a wonderful, blessed week!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
