Pumpkin Coffee

Pumpkin coffee has returned!! And I’ve been drinking my fair share lately :o) So along those lines, I have some retro cards to share with you that were created with a favorite SU set that has been around for a long time called “Espress Yourself.” The colors of my first card all come from the classic earth elements color family – chocolate chip, really rust, more mustard, and creamy caramel. To color in my mug, I used a versamark marker on the base so that it would be just a little darker than the cardstock and then used more mustard and really rust for the border and heart. My final step was to cover the heart with crystal effects making it smooth and shiny.

For the second card I used a classic pink and brown color combo and a fairly basic design of alternating panels in creamy caramel and close to cocoa stamped with the coffee bean stamp. The row of mugs is such a fun stamp to color; It makes me smile every time =D I secured it to the card base with eyelets on either end and then finished it off with some more crystal effects on part of each mug (which is hard to see in the picture but it really is there!).

Thanks for stopping by and happy fall!
