Today I have the pleasure of featuring the CM433 Cup of Love set:

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know how much I ADORE caffeinated craftiness!  Check out the coordinating Cup of Love Frame Cuts:

YES!  Each of those dies actually cuts the interior handle detail work too!

I managed to design two cards especially for today!  Here’s my first one.  The base is Decorative Woodgrain Cardstock.  Don’t you love the texture?

I teamed up the coffee pot and the mug with the flowers.  They’ve been stamped in black and colored with copic markers. 

Since the overall design is so clean + crisp, I decided to add a strip of cork and stamp the sentiment directly on it.

I love how the aqua mug POPS.

My next card is a shaker card that features the Ombre’ Blush Sequins:

Sigh, acetate is so persnickety and hates to be photographed.  I used the same woodgrain and cork on this card but mixed it up a bit.  The window has been cut with the Nesting Ovals Infinity dies.

Using the Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies on the cork panel made things so easy!  I filled up my card with TONS of the sequins and it makes a glorious shaker noise.


 I’m in full Valentine’s Day mode, how about you?

I can’t wait to hop around and see how everyone was inspired.  Next up is the awesome Caly Person!
