So now you've got all the information, here is my card share today:
I decided to create a scene with the two sets and have the friends having a coffee at their favorite coffee shoppe after their shopping spree.
After I stamped the two images with Memento Tuxedo Black, they were cut out using my newly acquired Brother Scan N Cut (thanks to my MIL). They were colored with Copic markers. The table cloth and chair seats were paper pieced with some designer paper snippet.
I used a Versamarker pen with Clear Detail embossing powder to go over the metal of the chairs. Some Dimensional Glue was added to the coffee cups.
I ran dark brown cardstock through a Sizzix Bricks embossing folder and took my Brilliance Moonlight White ink and swiped it over the raised pattern. I applied Belgian Cream embossing powder over the ink and heat embossed to achieve the stucco look of the wall.
The sentiment (from another of the sets, Coffee Talks) was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Moss. This is one of the Tuscany embossing powders, which are my favorites for sentiments when you don't want to use black. They always give a clean detailed impression. I cut and embossed with the Spellbinders Fancy Tags, sponging on some Memento Pear Tart before removing the die.
The bricked background was layered to a white card base which had been edged with Versamark and heat embossed with another of the Tuscany embossing powders, Cayenne.
The images and sentiment were then attached to the card front with Dimensional Dots to complete the card.
So that's it from me for today. Here are a couple of sneak peaks, using some of the other coffee themed sets. Stop by my blog to get details on these soon. AND if you are local - you need to pop over to the brick and mortar SNS store for the "Main Street Shop Hop. Details below:
