Happy Thursday! It's time for another Krafty Chicks Challenge, and this week's challenge twist is "Lotsa Layers" which just so happens to be my specialty! lol I recently ordered some fun goodies from Kat Scrappiness and I couldn't resist this set called BUT FIRST COFFEE (by Echo Park)
This is a great set with fantastic sentiments! I paired it up with Julee's Mojo sketch. I really wanted the "open part" of the cup to have this floral paper but piecing it seemed like it'd be a pain so I tried using some black EP. Several months back I'd seen Amy Tsuruta post something fabulous she made and she used WOW! Embossing Powder and their Clear Embossing pad, so I ordered some (I was in dire need of a good embossing pad!). Holy snickerdoodles, it is the bestest (by far) Clear embossing pad!! I stamped that cup on the floral paper with clear embossing ink and then added some black WOW ep… it covered those flowers perfectly!!
After stamping and embossing I was able to just cut it out and pop it up with dimensionals. I just LOVE the pink & green color combo! The paper pad is from Faith Illustrated (I absolutely LOVE their stuff!!!!).
