Your Kindness Warms My Heart - Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop

It's day 7 of the bloghop but only post #6 for me as I was quite busy yesterday and didn't have a chance to make an extra card. Turns out my husband got a new job and we are preparing to move in 2 weeks - lots to do!

Stamped these cute cups from Fiskars Latte Love onto watercolor paper with Saddle Brown StazOn waterproof ink plus the sentiment to match. After another relaxing session of water coloring, I let this piece dry and decided to play with my small circle dies.

After adhering the water color paper to my card base, I placed these circles back in layers to give a little dimension.   Gold Stickles was used to create the small dash lines around the watercolor paper piece.

Notes were also taken from Lessons by Sandy Allnock's Go for the Gold class. In Lesson 5 she uses a gold pen to create embellishments on the Christmas tree as well as make the cute lights stand out on her card.  I don't have the same brand, but instead used Gold Stickles to create my own dash line embellishments around the border.

The polka dot paper is from this paper pad I found at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section....only $6.00!! (Must've been left over from last year...but who will know?!)
