Coffee before talkie!

I'm still keeping things very simple. The coffee cup and pot images are from Pretty Cute Stamps, as is the tiny "before talkie" tag. The word "COFFEE" is die cut with an alphabet set from My Favorite Things.

I'm not sure who I would send this card to, however. Anyone I'd say this to already knows it.

Pumpkin Spice Latte time!

Yay, I am loving this coffee lover's blog hop, and wish I had a touch more mojo this go around.  

Today's card is a simple cup with simple sentiments. The PSL on the cup die cut cup stands for "Pumpkin Spice Latte", of course. 

The cup die, banner die, and stamped sentiment are all from My Favorite Things, and the paper is from an old stack in my stash that's lost it's cover.

Enjoy your fall coffee everyone!

Get well tea party

Yep, it's get well time, for me! I brought back a stupid chest cold from my Alaskan cruise, and it is malingering.

Anyway, this card is created from The Alley Way Stamp's "Tea Par Tea" set (from 2014). I embossed the teapot and teacup with copper embossing power onto water color paper. I then colored the m with my Gansai Tambi watercolors. The tiny teabag was stamped and embossed with the same copper embossing powder and mounted using a tiny piece of hemp twine.

I also use My Favorite Things plaid paper and MFT's scalloped frame die. The card base is cut from some Simon Says Stamp paper.

Way to start the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, right? More tea, please!
