Hello again my craftin friends!

I'm back again with another coffee themed card for the current Craftin Desert Diva's digi challenge on the CDD Gallery FB group!  I just simply can't get enough coffee.  The stamp I used is just too cute!

I started with a white card base and next I cut a simple rectangle layer out of the kraft.  The rainbow colored coffee cup layer was cut using the largest of the dies from the Fancy Frames set.  I created the background by resizing and rotating the images.  Then I colored them up.  Did I mention they are pretty small?  So the coloring took quite a while.

I then used the second largest die from Fancy Frames to cut out the heavy vellum layer.  I used some Versamark ink around the edges, tossed on some black embossing powder and heated it up.  I didn't want my colored layer to get lost after all that work!

I chose to use the girl image because I just love her little bow!  I even got to use my Brother Scan & Cut to cut her out.  Totally worked like a charm.  I had so much fun that I cut out a whole sheet of coffee cups. I see more coffee cards in my future.

I came up with my own sentiment and printed it out.  I then used the curvy die from the Flag Banner dies set.  I need to work on my Adobe Illustrator skills a bit.  I tried to curve the sentiment to match the flag banner.  Whew!

Here's a close up.

Isn't she super cute????

Be sure to check out the June Digi Stamp challenge on the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery FB page! Everyone who participates gets a free digi stamp.  That's awesome!!  Digital stamps have so many options for creating!!!  I'm learning more and more each day.
