Lawnscaping + Caffeine = Happiness!

Happy Friday!

So excited to be apart of the Lawnscaping June Blog Hop! Now sit back, grab a cup of coffee and hop along with us!



You should have found your way here from Kristina B., if not I suggest you go to the Lawnscaping blog and start from the beginning! (full hop list below)

OK, on to my card...

Love you a Latte!

I decided to have some fun with some Distress inks. It's hard to see but I randomly stamped the three coffee cups along with some coffee beans on the kraft background using Antique Linen ink, it dried lighter than I had anticipated- oops! I die cut a tag (this one from Pretty Pink Posh) from watercolor paper, flicked some brown Distress inks to look like coffee stains & added a few coffee beans in there too, I water-colored the three coffee cups from the Love you a Latte, added a few pieces of coordinating patterned papers & twine and called my card complete!

  1. Really cute card! I never think to use tags on my cards, so I definitely need to do more of that. Yours looks GREAT!

  2. I was able to make out the coffee mugs on the background, but I think your card is perfect without them showing up! I've noticed a lot of tags showing up as a focal point on cards and you've really done a marvelous job with this card.
