Coffee and Hearts

Hi,

A funny thing happened on the way to.....That's not quite accurate, it was funny but I wasn't on my way anywhere.  This morning I got up early to prepare hot cross buns in the new bread maker.  Followed all the instructions but when I went to take out the dough to make the buns I had a loaf of bread instead.  I had been so looking forward to hot cross buns for breakfast.

Onto the cards for today. 

I have had this stamp set for some time and have never used it   So I thought todays monochromatic card would be ideal.  A coffee coloured card using coffee themed stamps.

This was made using BasicGrey design paper, flourish stamps, Colourbox chalk inkpad and Kaiser Rhinestones.  I used the Basicgrey paper as background and for the mug as well.  I stamped the mug on brown card and on  design paper, cut out the paper mug and popped it up on the stamped image on the card.

Challenges
Crazy Amigo:  Free theme
Papercraft Star: Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes and option monotone
Anything goes - Anything goes
Paper Pretties Wednesday: Monochromatic

The second card
The Blockheads' Magic Metal Technique  and this is triple embossing. A new technique for me to learn.

I used Stampington & Co, Lg Sheet Music; Alison Ellis Design, Just Gold Embossing Powder; Hearts were made with Cuttlebug and Martha Stewart punch.  The sentiment was computer generated.

I had promised myself I would finish before midnight but alas.

Goodnight and thank you for dropping by.
