Bonjour (and the rest of my CHA cards)!

Hi! I wanted to share a simple card I made using Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - 50's French Cafe, my Spectrum Noir Markers and a die to deboss.

I started out by stamping the cup onto some nice, Ultra Smooth Cardstock with Memento ink.  I colored it in and then fussy cut it out.  I also stamped the image onto the base of the card, too, just so I had a placement for my die.

I debossed the cardstock with my Cuttlebug after stamping the sentiment.  Then, I simply added the washi tape, inked up the edges, adhered the cup with a pop dot and I was done.  For the steam, I just took a Q-Tip and brushed some white ink onto the card base gently, to make it look like wisps of smoke were coming from the coffee (or tea).

And now, here are the last two cards I created for the CHA!

This is the Stamp It Key Elements stamp.  I used some distress ink and a dauber to create the different soft tones.

And this zebra and sentiment is from the Stamp It In The Wild set.  I just adore zoo animals and we go to the zoo all the time, so this set is going to get a lot of use!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
