Thanks a Latte

i {heart} papers has just added Fresh Squeezed Stamps to the lineup at the store! Here’s a quick card for this week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches made with one of the new sets you can find at IHP.

I just love the to go cup image in the Hot, Hot, Hot set, so I used it here, set at the side of a die cut tag using dimensional dots. The cup is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, also new at IHP.

The tag and cup are layered on a piece of blue patterned paper.  I think it works for the masculine feel I was going for. I stamped the set's "thanks a latte" sentiment in teal ink on a kraft strip and adhered that underneath the to go cup. The tag is topped with a piece of knotted cream twill to give the card just a little bit of texture.

Materials Used: 
from i {heart} papers: Fresh Squeezed Stamps Hot, Hot, Hot stamp set, X-Press white Copic blending cardstock, Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Teal Zeal, and Summer Sky inks, Spectrum Noir markers (TN3, TN4, TN5, BT1, BT2), Carta Bella Traditions 6x6 paper pad, May Arts cream twill, Sticky Thumb dimensional dots 

other:  Neenah Desert Storm cardstock
