I stamped the sunflower in embossing ink and then heat embossed with Hero Arts (my new favorite) gold embossing powder.

I painted the flower with my pink and orange Zigs.

    slide02I fussy cut the sunflower. The large bloom, set in the upper left corner of this card, was is inspired by Yulianna’s submission for “Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin”.slide05 I stamped the “stem” with the sentiment and heat embossed in gold.slide06I added a shimmery-pink gel pen line along the edge of two sides.

slide04I narrowly matted the white panel with another panel of orange cardstock.

slide03Finally, I added a white card base. slide07Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
Melissa

I also used these lovely snowflake dies.

Here’s a quick slideshow of how I pieced together the travel mugs.

slide007I continued to piece together the mugs (and then pieced in the snowflake and “thanks’ into the popped up mug) and dry embossed the group on the card front.

slide006  slide002I had a lot of fun using this technique. I love paper piecing and bold, bright, graphic designs.

Thank you, Amy and all of you coffee-lovers, I’ve been so glad to be with you as the Guest Designer for January at Coffee Loving Cardmakers.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa
