My love for coffee...

>> Sunday, September 6, 2009 about as big as my love for apples. hahahahaha. I love any warm drink really. Hot apple cider being one of them too of course!

When I asked cynthia if she could draw up some coffee cups and things, i never had any idea how in love with them I would be! They are so different from the other coffee sets i've seen (which i think i own them all). Now i'm not knockin' the other stamp companies. I love their sets, but I'm very happy to have my own coffee set! And it has some super fun and fab wordart and sentiments to go with it put together by Shaela Odd.

Now, that i've talked up the coffee set, called Caffeine Trip (to be released on September 7th at 9pm CST), i dont exaaactly have a sneak for you of it. Instead i used one of the Moody Girls (also designed by cynthia). But she is the Moody for Coffee girl! :) And i love her! I paired her with one of the sentiments from the Caffeine Trip set. Dont forget to check out the PMS blog to see all the fun and funky cups and sentiments in this set!

Here is my card...

I'm telling you, i could color these moody girls all day long. They are just so much fun! Maybe i'll do a tutorial on how i like to color them soon. :)

Here is a close up of Ms. Moody's face...

And you might notice, the image itself is raised. I embossed it while in the nestie. And then i look my version of a paler R81 copic marker (an empty with r81 refill various ink and blender solution) and colored in the non raised portion.

With the snetiment, i also embossed it in the nestie, but i used my airbrush to give it a little color.

OH, and you see that ribbon? Look in the above photo, you can see it peeking out. Well that is the saddle stitched ribbon from the SU in colors a few years back. The white side stitch was too jaring against the rest of my card that was predominately pomegranate and pink... so you know what i did? I color over the white with a copic marker. It worked FANTASTICALLY. I was thrilled with my idea after. I'm going to start coloring EVERYTHING to match! :)
