The DT's are playing with some fabulous coffee goodies!! I had so much fun I made two cards! For the first one, I started with the Coffee Helps stamp set. I used my MISTI and Distress Marker Gathered Twigs to do some watercolor stamping. From the set, I used one of the cups, coffee ring, and coffee beans.

Then I stamped the Cup of Happiness sentiment next to the cup. I scribbled some of the Gathered Twigs on a palette and use water and brush to create some ground for the cup to sit on.

When it was dried, I used a stitched rectangle to cut the panel. Then I added some polka dotted pattern paper to a white card base and added the stamped panel on top. Last I added 3 FSJ Fashion Silver embellishments below the sentiment.

For my second I decided to do a fun shaker card! I started by using a circle die to cut two sheets of orange fun foam, a circle of pattern paper and a circle from acetate. Then I used the Coffee First Die Set to cut out a cup of the center of the fun foam and pattern paper.

I added a solid aqua paper to a white card base. Then I adhered the two layers of fun foam together and then adhered those to the card base. Next, I added some sequins to the cutout cup and covered it with the acetate circle. I let it all dry overnight to make sure all the layers were okay.

Once I was sure that everything would stay in place, I added the pattern paper circle on top. Then I cut the cup top from the white wood pattern paper. From the same pad, I also cut the straw. I added the straw on top of the acetate and then the cup topper. Last I added the Cup of Happiness sentiment, that I know released that I used them on both cards!
