Playing in Paradise #85 - Have a Cuppa

It’s Friday and that means we have a new Playing in Paradise challenge for you today. I am your hostess this week, and I have an inspirational image for the challenge. 

This image reminds me of some wonderful fall treat like a Gingerbread latte, best of course enjoyed with friends. There is no real theme to this challenge other than what this photo brings to mind for inspiration for you.

I found this fantastic Canvas Corp-Coffee Stamps on Kraft designer paper in the online store and I could not resist creating something right away. My card has lots of layer but I am really happy with the little coffee cup embellishment I created.

I stamped the image 4 times, two on kraft cardstock then again on a piece of natural white and brown cardstock.

I then cut out a full cup from the kraft cardstock, the lid from the natural white and the sleeve from brown cardstock.

I finished by popping each of the layers up with foam tape and adding a pearl to give the cup a 3D look.
This is a side view of the layers. Some images are easier to fussy cut than other and this one was pretty simple, I feel it adds a little something extra to a project.

Lets take a look at all the wonderful creations from the Challenge Team and out Guest Designer

Our Guest Designer this week is Sharon. We are so glad that you could join us this week.
