Hello Friends, I had a terrific time on Sunday getting crafty while it was raining outside. I just love when the weather works out according to my plans, so I don’t feel guilty about being in my studio when it’s nice outside. Today’s post is pretty chock full, so please bear with me! Julee Tilman over at the Verve Store has this Fabulous FREE Latte Love Digi Set for all of us to enjoy! Don’t delay, as it is only available for a short time. Thanks Julee!!! I absolutely love it and couldn’t wait to print it out and get to work. I am linking this card up to quite a few Challenges! The first is the Verve Inspiration Challenge for the month of September. Next, is for the 4th Viva la Verve Sketch of the month. Next, is the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, that I am sure you have run into in blog land recently. And last but not least, I am back playing again this week with Just Add Ink where they asked us to use our 3 favorite colors. This is definitely one of my all time favorite combinations! I looked at all the rules and regulations on all of the Challenges and I don’t believe I have violated any of them by linking to 4 challenges, at least I sure hope not!
Here are a few Card Details and another view of my card: I used water colored paper and and inked up and spritzed water on my Embossing Folder to get the effect I was looking for the background leaf paper. I colored the coffee cups with my Prisma Colored pencils. I spattered the same 3 colors of ink onto my sentiment panel. The heart die is also from Verve and is a must have! I distressed all the edges with my SU distresser. Added the ribbon and the button brad to finish it off. Excuse the ribbon….. I had it adhered them both to my card in two continuous loops and didn’t like it at all. So I decided to cut them while they were already in place, which explains why they are so short and are clearly the back of the ribbons, as there are no dots showing on parts of them. Epic fail there! Other then that….Love…..Love my card!
Thanks so much for sticking with me today for my long post! I sure appreciate you stopping by! Nanc’
