Expresso Yourself


I made this card for my stepsister last night at my crop. I've made 2 other cards, but will post them in another entry. I'm linking up this card with Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and the challenge ends June 12 so feel free to join along- it must be summer theme & include coffee. Now for the details of my card. The card base is Core'dinations Kraft smooth A7 (5x7), the paper is from my stash- I'm not sure of the manufacturer, the bling is also from my stash. I found the coffee cups & sentiment inside- "Expresso Yourself!" on Pinterest  Coffee Zenspiration! If the pin/link doesn't work you can follow me on Pinterest and you'll see the pin on my Scrapbooking board. The Happy Birthday stamp is part of Stampin Up! Remembering Your Birthday 8 stamp collection, I used VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, & stamped it on a piece of Paper Pizzazz Purple Swirls 12x12 paper. I used Recollections Masterpiece II Dual-Tip Water Based Markers, American Crafts Chromatix markers- 2 different shades of purple, Hampton Arts Black Dual Tip Marker, & Gelly Roll 8 White Pen to color the cups and to highlight Expresso Yourself. I used Recollections Foam Adhesive to make the coffee cups stand out & Ameritech glue runner on the paper & both sentiments. I also borrowed an XACTO knife to cut out around the handles. TFL! Please come back soon to see the other cards I made. Have a great weekend!
