A Couple of Cards

I decided to make some cards this week just to have some on hand. The card base above is Recollections. Both PP are from Studio Calico Lemon Lush Collection 6x6 pad. The ribbon- pink and white polka dots is American Crafts Premium Ribbon. The top green strip is Scotch Expressions washi tape- found at Walgreens. The tat at the top was given to me from a lady that came to our crop night one night. She loves tatting (not sure if that's the right spelling) and decided to give some away. I adhered the ribbon with my Xyron 1.5" create-a-sticker maker. Hello Friend is a Pebbles clear acrylic stamp from a set that I found at TJ Maxx. I used VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment ink to stamp it on Recollections Butterfly Wings 4.5"x6.5" Cardstock Paper that I trimmed with my Xyron 12x12 Paper Trimmer (not sure on the dimensions). I used Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares to add the sentiment. Now for the next card!
The card base on this card is Studio G Hampton Art. The pink PP is Melissa Frances Classic Elegance 6x6 Paper Pad. The coffee cup/saucer & Got Coffee sentiment are Got Coffee digi stamps from The Cutting CafĂ©. I used Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares again to attach the stamps. I used Copic sketch .Too 100 Black to outline the coffee cup/saucer & Chromatix Grape 1 & 2 Brush tips to give them color. I then added Studio Calico Adhesive Dots & Opaque Gems for the spots & the top 3 in the right corner. (I coughed after coloring the saucer so I had to cover up my mistake.) I've had a cold for a few weeks and the cough doesn't want to seem to go away. Anyway, I used ZIG Memory System 0.5mm Nutmeg to accent coffee in Got Coffee and a little on the steam. The purple washi tape on the left fold of the card is from Oriental Trading. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the pink PP.  I will be in a blog hop next Saturday, March 7 and I would love for you to come back and hop along with me! Have a great weekend & TFL!
