I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Thanks A Latte

Hello all,

I hope you're having a great weekend so far. Today is Sunday, and that means it's time for a new Paper Players challenge. Laurie is our hostess and this week we are playing Tic-Tac-Toe. I think these are some of my favorite challenges to do.

For this one, I decided on the right side, down option of masculine-red-diecut.

I used a sketch from Sunday Stamps Weekly from a few weeks ago. The coffee stamps and dies are from Reverse Confetti. The patterned papers are Lawn Fawn, and I found these enamel stars in my stash from Doodlebug which I thought made great embellishments to go along with the stars in the patterned papers. The curved banner is the new SU punch.

The large cup is die cut from white card stock. Then I stamped the tall coffee cup onto the red patterned paper and fussy cut it for paper piecing. The "coffee" was stamped on white and fussy cut and placed into the top of the cup.

Here is look at the inside with more stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti. The cup and coffee are paper pieced here as well.

It's funny that I don't drink coffee but I love all of the coffee related paper crafting creativity we see around blog land lately. Go figure!

Stop by the rest of the DT's blogs for more awesome Tic-Tac-Toe inspiration. You'll find them here:
