Tip: When you are you going to die cut large shapes from cardstock, instead of using the smallest scraps you have to fit the die, center the die into a mat sized to fit a card, this way, you cut once but have two pieces you can use, a focal point AND a pretty frame for another card. The Snowflakes embossed layer worked like a two-for-one!
SO here is the oval cut out from the mat above, I sponged with with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo. I love the Cosmo Cricket print on this cup! The ornament layer behind is Basic Grey Jovial again, some of the prints in these two packs are really terrific together! I also used my Scor-Bug to pierce a row of dots above and below the DP, this is a great way to add a qucik detial to cardsto make them fancier ( no one has to know how quick it goes! shhh)
Last, I snapped this pic a couple months ago when I was out for coffee with a friend at Thunderbird's in Austin, I knew it would be a sweet treat to add to a post after "Mugs and Kisses" was released! Isn't that gorgeous, have you ever seen that done before?! Well, it was new to me, a very talented barista* makes coffee a piece of art, almost too pretty to drink! (But of course, I did, honey nut latte, yummo!)
Have a glorious day, stay warm!!
Coming up, a guest designer blast from the past!
*wonder what that gy could do with ink?? It's like the shaving cream technique in a cup! ;)
