Let's get together

  Happy Friday!!!  It's time for a new challenge from the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is: COFFEE

And our fabulous sponsor is:

Here is my card for your inspiration:
Oh, boy, did I have fun with this one!!  If you read my last post, you will know that I don't drink coffee.  I LOVE the smell, but do not like the taste at all.  But I know a lot of, what I call, coffee addicts so it's always fun to make a coffee themed card.  I started with this fabulous "Sketched Coffee Cup" from Stamplorations (it's a digital image) and printed it out twice on white card stock, once on my patterned paper and a partial image on the kraft "sleeve".  I fussy cut one of the white images to use as the base, then fussy cut the patterned paper and adhered it to the base.  I fussy cut just the lid of the second white image and added a little shading with a gray marker then adhered it to the top.  I fussy cut the kraft "sleeve" and then ran it through my die cutting machine with a corrugated embossing folder.  I die cut the word "coffee" from brown card stock three times and adhered them all together, then adhered it onto the coffee cup.  The dimension on this is fabulous!!  The patterned paper background and the dotted strip are both cut and pieced together behind the main panel, but no one (except you) will ever know!  Both leaves were in my bits and pieces stash and the smaller patterned paper pieces were scraps.  My sentiment was pieced together from two different sentiment and part of the second was masked off to get the final sentiment.  Using the MISTI makes it so much easier, though I did have to fiddle around for a bit to get the two lined up correctly.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the Cut It Up blog for the full details of the challenge and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.
