Thanks a Latte!

You guys know I love a good pun. Or a bad one, to be honest. I just can't even HELP it! I decided to play along the the MFT Card Challenges Sketch Challenge and pulled out one of the fun punny stamp sets from MFT. And gold and white. Because gold and white.


I don't work with ovals often, so this sort of intrigued me. I pulled out the Pierced Oval dies from Spellbinders to serve as my base for the die cut image. I love those pierced dies. I seriously reach for them SO STINKING MUCH.

Thanks A Latte


This has a few layers, which was kind of fun, as I don't often work in layers. I stamped the cool triangle background (from Aha Arts)in gold Delicata ink and then added a cute puffy sticker border from Pinkfresh Studio. I {HEART} PUFFY STICKERS! For reals, though. I totally do. I then die cut the oval, added it with foam tape, die cut the cup, lid, and sleeve, added that with foam tape, and then heat embossed the sentiment in gold on vellum and wrapped it around the whole lot of it! Layers can be fun, guys!

Thanks a Latte (detail)


I have to be honest, I'm not usually one for sketch challenges, as working with a sketch just isn't my favorite thing in the world, but this one was very clean and simple in style and pushed me out of the box a little with the whole oval thing, so I jumped in. I am so glad I did! This card turned out super cute and was a lot of fun to create!
