Sketch and Stash Challenge 1

I found out about this new challenge site from one of my SBS sisters (I'm sorry, I can't remember which one).

The Sketch and Stash Challenge provides you with a sketch and challenges you to use just what you have in your stash (new or old). What a great idea!

I pulled out the I Like it a Latte stamp set. I have had it for a while but haven't used it much. Once I had decided what the image was going to be the rest was easy.

I just had to use warm colours so I chose Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla (for the ribbon) and Confetti Cream. Such warm, yummy colours!

I clear embossed the cup in Close to Cocoa. The steam was stamped in Creamy Caramel on top. The foam/cream on top of the cup was stamped in Creamy Caramel on Whisper White and then cut out and adhered on top of the cup.

The small heart was stamped in Ruby Red (another yummy, warm colour) on Whisper White, cut out and then layered on a Creamy Caramel circle.

I layered the main image on Creamy Caramel and then adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals onto the Close to Cocoa textured base card.

The sentiment was stamped in Close to Cocoa on Confetti Cream and punched out with the Designer Label punch (I wanted to use the tab punch but it was just a little bit small).

This card makes me want to curl up in front of an open fire with my hands warming around a steaming mug of cocoa or coffee. Unfortunately, I don't live in the right climate for that! Oh well, I just have to dream!

ETA: Thanks Debby for asking about Crystal Effects. Yes, I did use it over the cream on the coffee and the red heart. I clean forgot to mention it.
