Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Reverse Confetti - Echo Park Paper

I made not just one card, but two!!! For the first card I went with a fall themed card! I started with Echo Park Paper Co. Celebrate Autumn collection and ephemera pack. From a flowery pattern I used Art Impressions double stitched rectangle dies to die cut a frame, I did the same from a orange pattern paper in the collection. I replaced the flower frame with the orange frame, adding both to a white card base.

Next, I stamped the big coffee cup from the Caffeinated Cups set on brown card stock and then white heat embossed it. I also stamped part of the cup from a yellow pattern and fussy cut it out and added it to the brown cup. Then I fussy cut the hole cup from the brown card stock.

I used the banner from the Tag Me tag die set and then stamped the sentiment from For the Love of Latte. I also stamped the Coffee and fussy cut around that.

Then I added the coffee sentiment to the front of the coffee cup. I arranged the cup, sentiment banner and a flower from the ephemera pack. When I was happy with the arrangement I added everything with foam tape.

For my second card I wanted to make a Halloween card. I don't have any RC Halloween stamps, but I have a several sets that haven't seen ink yet. Then I happened upon the perfect die from Tonic!

To tart I stamped the same coffee cup I used above and then I used the dragon from Magical Day, stamping it inside the coffee cup. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color everything up. Since I knew I was going to fussy cut the cup I didn't worry about stamping the dragon and coloring outside the lines.

Next, I used a What's Brewing die from Tonic. The words actually fit inside a cauldron and there is smoke coming from it, but I new I wanted to fit it in and around the cup some how, so I got to taking apart the sentiment.

After playing with it a bit I found the What's fit at the top of the cup and Brewing? fit below it nicely. I added the cup and sentiments to an orange pattern paper and then added that panel to another orange pattern. Last, I added a few matching enamel dots!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Your next stop in the hop is the wonderful Terri Burson!!  Remember when you make your way through the CLC designers to circle back to the CLC blog and hop along with our Super Sponsors for even more chances to win some prizes!!
