Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop w/ Paper Smooches!! =)

Hello!!
I'm stopping in to share a card that I've made for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!
I wanted to use the Sweet Little Coffee and Tea Dies from Paper Smooches!! I die cut them and started to play around with a Layout!!?? I truly had NO IDEA or Direction I was heading in, I just KNEW I wanted to use the Die Cuts!!?? After looking through my other Paper Smooches Dies I decided to Die Cut a Frame 1 Die!! I decided to cut it in half and use it as the Base/Table for my Coffee Mugs!! I then used the Shadows Stamp Set to create a Shadow for the Mugs on the Frame Die Cut using SSS Fog Ink!!  I then die cut a Brick Patterned Paper from the Crate Paper Boys Paper Collection!! I wanted to tone it down alittle, so I die cut a Vellum piece to layer over the top and I LOVE the way it looks!! Then a LightBulb went off!!??  =)  I thought it would be FUN to create a SWEET Little Coffee Mug Couple!! =) Since it is a Spring theme, I thought I'd go for a HAPPY Color Palette!! I used the New Incognito Stamp Set and I stamped and Embossed the Glasses and Face Features!! Then I fussy cut them out!! I used a N0 Copic Marker to add some shading to the Glasses!! I wanted them to be even more dressed up so I stamped a Handsome Little Hat from the Noggin Toppers Stamp Set and then I used the New Baby Bow Die and I die cut a Pretty Floral Patterned Paper for a Bow!! I LOVE the way they turned out, adding just the right finishing touches!!  =) I stamped my sentiment on the Vellum and then heat embossed it using Clear Embossing Powder!! At this point, I thought I was DONE!!?? Something felt like it was missing though!!?? So after thinking about it I decided the Coffee Mugs needed so Steam!! So I took the Flap Happy Stamp Set and stamped two different Trail Images to use as the Steam for my Coffee Mugs!! =) I wanted it to look as though the steam was rising and then forming Hearts!! =) I really LOVE the look!! I stamped them underneath the Vellum panel so they would appear faint just like real Steam!! =) I had to mask the images in orfer to get the look I wanted, but I really like the way it turned out!! I then took a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker and traced over the Trail/Steam Images ontop of the Vellum and I really like the subtle look it adds!! I added a Tiny Heart Die Cut and then I decided to add Wiggly Eyes to the Glasses just to add even MORE FUN to this scene!! The Girl is Winking!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
