Coffee Time Collage

A few things came together to bring you this card!

A while ago, I won a competition on CBC to use recycled stuff on a card. The prize was donated by Dewdrop Craftz and was a custom A7 stamp sheet. I finally got round to designing some stamps and they arrived this morning.

When I won $$ to spend at Cornish Heritage Farms during February in their Online Referral Program, I topped up the amount to get free US shipping and had the package shipped to a colleague of DH's in Boston. His daughter just visited her grandparents in London and my DH just visited the grandfather so the stamps finally found their way to me yesterday (did you follow that? lol!)

Finally, I'd been thinking about the stamped collage technique tutorial posted by Keri at CHF.



Supplies: espresso cup (my own design), Beautiful and Time to Stamp (both Rummage Bin at Cornish Heritage Farms), Versafine Vintage Sepia, Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Antique Linen), Dewdrops (Masculine), small circle punch.

The 'ticket corners' are created with a small circle punch. Just push the corner of the paper in (I've added two small pen marks on the punch itself to mark off the quarter circle) and punch out the little bite.

Thanks for stopping by, sorry the coffee was only virtual!
