Love You A Latte Pieced Card

I had this Avery Elle set on my work table (I used a Happy Birthday sentiment stamp), and this card just had to play through.

The cups are paper pieced with Amy Tangerine On A Whim paper.

The background is dry embossed with the cup die (hard to see – I should have used an extra shim!).

Encouragement Ice Cream Cards

I really wish I could get a version of this ice cream paper with a blue background!

This second card is a note card. And, YES, I have this paper in 2 different sizes – the smaller scale is from a 6 x 6 pad, the larger scale is an individual sheet I purchased separately.

Are you asking, “why ice cream today, Kathy??”

This past weekend, Offspring3 and I went to see “The Color Purple” at The Kennedy Center. It was a lovely show. On the way home, we stopped at our local soft serve stand and ate dessert before dinner!  I got the better end of the deal – she bought the tickets & drove (Metro construction zones, rail closures made it too difficult to go on public transportation), I paid for parking and ice cream.

SO…I have had ice cream on my mind!

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, paper – American Craft Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise (retired), ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), My Favorite Things (pierced rectangle), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.
