Thanks A Latte! {CTD337}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Broni has challenged us to use green, teal, kraft and white!  LOVE this color combo!  I’ve used the current MFT Sketch Challenge, MFTWSC223, for the layout!


I had SO much fun making this card!  I’ve used the darling Coffee Cup Die-namics and Perk Up set, along with the Circle Grid Stencil, all of which I am in LOVE with!  I cut the coffee cup from Smooth White Card Stock using the Coffee Cup Die-namics, and the sleeve was cut from Brown Paper Bag Prestige Card Stock.  I pulled out my crimper, blew off the dust (lol) and crimped the panel.  I super love that!  I added a  heart cut from Jellybean Green Card Stock using Blueprints 15 Die-namics.  I popped the coffee cup on top of a panel of Summer Splash Prestige Card Stock (this is my favorite color lately!!) cut with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.  I added this on top of a panel of Jellybean Green Card Stock cut with the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics.  I wrapped the panel with Hemp Cord and tied a bow topped off with a Sweet Tooth Button.


The main panel of Smooth White Card Stock was cut with Blueprints 13 Die-namics and I added a mat of SMooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics.  I used the Circle Grid Stencil to stencil the main panel and I sponged on Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink, Jellybean Green Premium Dye  Ink and Kraft Premium Dye Ink.


On the inside, I added two panels of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics and Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I stamped “Thanks A Latte” using Summer SPlash Premium Dye Ink and “You Warm My Heart” using Jellybean Green Premium Dye Ink.  I used my MISTI to line them up perfectly.  I can’t say enough about the MISTI.  I LOVE mine!
