I stamped Milo and coloured him and his dog with Pro Markers. I used K & Co background paper and ATD paw print paper and the 'friend' sentiment was made using Papermania alphabet stickers. I coloured the flowers with Pro Markers to make them match the colour scheme.

I started this card by stamping the coffee background onto cream card then punched the edge with a stampin' up punch. The I stamped various coffee images onto cream card and vellum. The slide mount was coloured silver with a krylon pen. some brown paper was then embossed with a cuttlebug folder and was used in the background. Some silver metal embellisments were used threaded with brown spotted ribbon. Finally a silver heat embossed spoon was added.

Using a template, I cut out the cup shape in shades of browns & creams, for the froth I used mulberry paper which I feathered at the edge. I assembled the layers, then attached to a brown base.


I stamped a Linda Luckin Calendula image in Vintage Sepia Versafine, and inked the edges with Walnut Distress Ink. I matted the image onto some plain and patterned HOTP papers, and inked the edge of a cream cream card also with Walnut. I stamped a greeting and added 2 eyelets to finish.

I have had this lovely free image from the *Lisa Vollrath Two Ten *site for some time now - so I decided to have a play with it. The lace background piece has been made using the *Stampin Up 'Antique lace'* background stamp. I stamped it using ink in a coffee colour and I also added Peanut Butter and Guilded Ivory embossing powders in places for depth and t exture. Embellished with a paper flower, a length of ribbon and a buckle I had lying around.
