Espresso Yourself!

Hi everyone.  Here is my Design Team card for the latest challenge at Bugaboo's Catch The Bug Challenge blog - Bingo!!

I picked the vertical line on the left:  Player's Choice (paper piecing), circle, twine.

I used a sweet digital stamp from Bugaboo called "Coffee Time - Espresso Yourself". The coffee cups are paper pieced with the designs colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from a different digital stamp set called "Coffee Time - Thanks a Latte".  I added two knotted strands of twine and cut out an extra heart for the embellishment.  Easy, peasy and so much fun!!!

Here's a close-up of the image:

Stamps:  Coffee Time - Espresso Yourself, Coffee Time - Thanks a Latte (Bugaboo)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Snap Life (Simple Stories); Silver (SU!)
Ink:  Copics:  R29, E77, YR24, YG95, YR07,
Accessories & Tools:  Cappuccino Twine (The Twinery), glue, glue dots, and adhesives

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge!!  Check out Catch the Bug Challenge Blog for the rules and to see the wonderful creations from the Design Team.

  8. Lovely paper piecing. You say Easy-Peasey, but it really is not that 'easy'..well, maybe you are not fumble fingered as I am. Your paper choices on the cups were great, and I'm liking how you combine the cup digi with another sentiment digi. Good skills that I need to acquire. As usual, delightful card. TFS & Happy Wkend
