Thanks A Latte

 Hello peeps,

Some late evening stamping after having pizza with some friends. I saw Cecile's interesting sketch for the The Freshly Made Sketches Challenge for this week and I wanted to see what I could do with it. After looking through some of my older SU stamp sets, I saw this tiny cup in the Merry Cafe set and thought it would work just fine. I also had in mind this week's Retro Rubber Challenge where the theme is Pastels.

Using an older SU circle punch, I punched a few pieces of scrap card stock to use as stencils. Then I choose  some SU inks in pastel colors and applied the ink with blending brushes and the punched stencil. After the circles were made, I stamped the cup using black ink into each circle. Super simple really. The greeting is from a Verve set called Better with You.

I cut the stamped panel and a black mat out using the Gina K Master Layouts 2 die set and glued them to a Purple Posy card base, and added some pastel pearls for a little embellishment.

On the inside, I stamped the same cup using Purple Posy ink and stamped a greeting from the Paper Smooches Caffeinated Two stamp set.

Simple and cute.

Have a nice Thursday!
