A Lotta' Coffee



This was a fun little card to put together that uses the technique paper piecing and the stamp set My Cuppa' Joe.  Just a note: you definitely need really sharp scissors to get around the inside handle of the coffee mugs.  My scissors were a little gummy from my Zots adhesive and once I cleaned them they cut much better!  The Creamy Caramel panel I scored using my Scor-Pal and love the way it created a frame. (I am sure I have seen it somewhere so not sure who to give credit to...) The designer paper used on the coffee mugs is from the Basic Grey Sultry line...honestly, you just can't go wrong with Basic Grey!

Off to get busy about the day! :o)

Great work Jennie...I think the frame was/is shown by anyone demoing the tool at shows and stuff like that. I, too, love how you get that instant look with so little effort. I am patiently waiting for the metric version at the moment...wont be parting with my imperial one though.
