Hello! I’m back today with a really fun NORTHERN Winter Coffee card:
The sentiment originally said ‘chocolate bar’ – which is terrific, but didn’t fit the Coffee Lovers Hop. I cut it apart so that I could put the in the die cut ‘Coffee’ lined with brown instead. Sometimes you can mask a sentiment to do this, but the words in this one were too close. Cutting stamps apart is fairly easy with an X-acto knife and they can go right back together to use as originally intended. It’s an easy way to get more mileage out of your stamps. So far I haven’t been struck by lightening for the sacrilege of ‘maiming’ my stamps. lol!
I thought the flower sequin was just the right size to stick in her hair. That helps draw your eye away from the other side of her face where I added some hair to cover for the fact that I got her face stamped in slightly off from her chin angle…. now she just looks like she might have a bad toothache… of course I shouldda kept MY mouth shut and you probl’y wouldn’t’ve noticed! lol!

This will make a nice card to give a package of each of the hot beverages we’re highlighting and a mug… (had it not be nearing deadline, I would have put one together, but I’ll have to do that later.)
This was my first time playing with Amplify… WoW! It really puffs up when you heat it! Cool stuff!! Once again I made my own word Cocoa from the Chocolate die and Tea from a set that had the words “Thank” and “friend” in it and just cut out the letters needed.
