Welcome to the August Creative Inking Blog Hop
This month we are giving you some sneak peeks of Holiday Catalog Products.
I knew I was gonna need the Merry Cafe set as soon as I saw it. I already had the Coffee Cafe bundle from the Annual catalog (I'm a sucker for Chai Tea Lattes, and wanted to make all sorts of tea themed cards). And it coordinates with the pieces from that set so perfectly- and opens up the venue for Holiday themed drinks.
And if there is one thing I'm a sucker for (even more than Chai Tea) it is Pumpkin Pie Spice Chai Tea!!! So of course that was the first thing I made with this set.
This is a set of little 3x3 notecard sized cards. I used the 12x12 Pumpkin Pie cardstock from the Holiday Catalog for the base, and then added the cup stains using Timeless Textures. The wooden cup is from the Coffee Cafe bundle, as is the cardboard textured hot sleeve (the framelit both cuts and embosses- how cool is that!).
I wanted the whipped topping to look like it was speckled with cinnamon for the Pumpkin Pie Spice Latte, so instead of stamping it solid, I used the kissing technique with the spotted texture from Timeless Textures. It turned out so yummy looking!
Last, but certainly not least, I added the sentiment from the Merry Cafe set, and cut it out using the stitched framelits. It is attached flat along the edge of the card, but has a dimension on the coffee cup side. Just a different way to attach a layer :)
Hope you enjoyed my Pumpkin Pie Spice inspiration. Now hop along and see the rest of the cards!
