Warm Wishes

Hi there friends! I'm taking a bit of a break from the Tim tags/cards today to share a recent Paper Smooches creation. I love their images and recently purchased a few sets, one of them being this coffee-inspired set, Hot Concotions. Seeing as we have a dusting of snow and ice outside and I'm sitting at my PC sipping my second cup of coffee today, this is the perfect card to share!!
I used designer paper from Little Yellow Bicycle for this card and some paper piecing for the cup. I stamped and embossed the cup image on white cardstock and then restamped the image on the designer paper. The designer paper was cut out and glued on to the white cardstock. The small oval shape, acting as a shadow under the cup, is also included in the set and can be used as a shadow or as the beverage inside the cup (which I did too), right!!?

The tiny bit of steam is a piece of cotton that I pulled and fluffed before added with a bit of liquid glue. The sentiment was stamped on a paper banner and attached with one edge under the cup.

Enjoy and be sure to check out the Paper Smooches site!
