My Brew of Choice

FLOURISHES is having a “What’s your Cup of Tea?” challenge! They are asking us to get inspired by the container of our favorite kind of beverages; suggesting that we look at the label and be inspired by the color or layout of the package. I’m a coffee girl all the way…seldom will you find my mug  filled with anything else! So, I was inspired by the rich brew of course, but also by the plain brown paper bag that we buy our roasted grounds in as well.  The Flourishes cup I cut out is similar in shape to one of my favorite mugs too.  The heart and the sentiment just sums it all up!

I masked off the moon with a punched circle and sponged Peach, So Saffron, Pumpkin pie, Walnut Stain and Basic Black inks around it.  The 4″ circle is cut using my Creative Memories cutting system. Then, I painted the inside of the house with Twinkling H2O’s in Autumn Butternut, and Wintermist Gray. The base card is 11″ X 5.5″ Very Vanilla cs folded in half, for a 5.5″ square card.  I also sponged the edges with the Peach ink. The bg is stamped with eek! from the Bitty Boo’s Too Stampin’ Up! set, on K & Co.  paper. This was  so fun to make! Hope you all like it! Look for Snag ’em stamps (Imaginisce) at your …
