Thankful-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb
Hello, and welcome to the November edition of Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb. Deb and I decided to go with a Thankful theme this month since we celebrated Thanksgiving this week in U.S. We also have my good friend Rebecca Ledbetter joining us again this month as our guest designer. To create my card I started by layering some pretty burnt orange cardstock onto my white card base. I then cut down a smaller panel of white cardstock and splattered it with Memento cocoa brown and morocco inks using a small tipped paint brush and some water. Once it was dry I adhered it to the card panel and added some dashed lines around the outer edge using my Memento cocoa brown dual tip marker. I then stamped the medallion from Stampin' UP's Day Of Gratitude stamp set onto some more white cardstock using a combo of both the same Memento inks. I added a pretty bronzed brad from Stampin' UP in the center and popped the image up off of the card using Stampin' UP's foam dimensionals. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Close To My Heart's Always Grateful stamp set onto a strip of the burnt orange cardstock and heat embossed it using Recollections snow white detail embossing powder. I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin' Up stamp set and popped it and the sentiment banner up off of the card using more foam dimensionals. To finish my card off I added a few mocha sequins from The Ton to the card panel and added some dark brown dots to the medallion and leaf for some additional interest. I will also be entering this card into the latest Time Out Challenge.
As for my coffee beverage of choice this month, I popped in on Becky and brought us both a McCafe' peppermint mocha latte. She had leftover cookies and cake from Thanksgiving so I dug in and enjoyed way more sugar than I should have. Good thing I ran this morning. LOL. Now, hop on over to Deb and Becky's blogs and leave them some love in the way of a comment.
