I am excited to announce that I am a Guest Designer for Daydream Designs this month. Diane has a wonderful assortment of digi stamps for all occasions, Scripture digis and beautiful digi papers. Be sure to stop by, browse thru her store, catch up on the latest happenings on the blog, and sign up for the newsletter. For those on Facebook, why not "like" the Daydream Designs Facebook page? This way, you won't miss a thing. I'll be posting a project featuring Daydream Designs digis each Thursday this month.
For my first Daydream Designs project, I made this card using a couple different sets. My coffee cup is from The Perfect Blend digi set which contains 19 images (some are pre-colored). The sentiment is from the Deja Brew Digi Sentiment set which contains 13 coffee themed sentiments.
I paper pieced the coffee cup and added some SU Crystal Effects to the coffee for a little dimension & shine. Since this card is intended for my coffee-loving daughter, I embossed her initial on the cup (Sorry, that initial is not a Daydream Designs stamp). After cutting out the cup, I popped it up on an embossed panel. The swirls on this panel remind me of steam. Some bling "steam" was added as well.
The sentiment tag was also popped up off the card base. Some jute, "metal" dots and minor interior decorating finished off the card.
