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!).

Supplies:  Stamps – Avery Elle, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Desert Storm, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Avery Elle (cup), Spellbinders (circles), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Butterfly Circle Birthday Card

This is card #2 for my mother-in-law – her birthday is next week.

I had been looking at a Reverse Confetti stamp set that has a butterfly wreath. Pretty. BUT, no disposable income to be found in my craft wallet.

Do I have a small butterfly stamp that I can use with the Gina K. Designs wreath builder?? (YES)

Gorgeous Grape, inks – Hero Arts Fiesta Yellow, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, Lime Zest, Lollipop, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (circles), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
