Birthday Coffee

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC64. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest thing.

I love my coffee and I'm lovin' the new Let's Do Coffee set from Taylored  Expressions. I decided to use the three mugs for today's sketch and I went bright and cheery with the colours. The fun patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary, the Jack & Jill collection. I know, I know...I'm seeing the Quite Contrary everywhere in blogland too, but it's a phenomenal line of papers and I'm definitely not even close to being tired of it yet! The sentiment is from Branching Out.

I stamped the three mugs with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream then coloured them with copics. I added a little sparkle with two Spica glitter pens. The images are cut out and popped on foam tape for dimension.

I cut out a piece of Frosted Teal with my Labels Three Nestabilities then ran it through my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder. To create the Intense Kiwi mat I simply traced around the same Nestabilities shape then cut it out with scissors. Seriously Spellbinders...would you please come out with in-between sizes for the Labels line...PLEASE!!! I did a little stitching around the base layers the create the center strip with Frosted Kiwi and Sunflowers Medium, along with some green glimmer twill.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation over on Karen's blog. Now let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for today's sketch.
