Coffee and Friends and Layers

Our Coffee with Friends Rubber Stamp is perfect to give as an invitation to a friend or as a "Hey, we had fun together-thank-you-card." I often find that I don't layer enough in my projects.  The more layers you have, the better the card, tag or journal page looks.  So for this project, I forced myself to add as many color coordinating layers as possible.    A coffee card has to have some caramel colored brown shade to it. I love dollies and how they can be folded to make them even thicker as a layer.  The rick rack ribbon is a pretty pink color that goes well with brown.  The pink and red colors compliment the browns nicely and the white contrast of the doily match the embossed swirl pattern of the white accent paper on the left. The embossed paper has brown distress ink added at the edges.  Along the bottom is a charm attached to a pink safety pin, attached to another layering of the rick rack ribbon.

A Reason for Green

St. Patrick's Day is an excellent reason to use the color green!  Using green dollies and green and white yarn makes the perfect accent to our Lucky Leprechaun Rubber Stamp.   Derwent's Inktense watercolor pencils colored in this little guy's outfit.  For the face and hands, I used Copic markers.  Gold glitter glue was placed on the waist and hat buckles. A No. 8 tag is used for this project.  Fiskars lace border punch was used on a beige polka patterned paper and placed on top of a green doiley, cut in half.  The leprechaun is stamped on watercolor paper and die cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities (Large Ovals Set) die.  Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
