Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Designer Drafts

Happy Tuesday!  Well, it's the waining hours of Tuesday here so it's actually Wednesday almost everywhere else... oh well.  Whatever day it is... hope it's great!

I'm a bit behind on this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Designer Drafts Challenge... I usually have it posted with the rest of this week's team but the weekend was a little hectic.  Better late than never.  It's Designer Drafts which means there is one of Kim's fabulous sketches to play along with.

I inked up Hot Concoctions for the first time.  Gasp!  I know, quite shocking... I just got a few weeks ago but haven't had a chance to use it.  It works perfectly for the vertical version of the sketch.  Those who know me, know I'm a wee bit particular about my coffee.  We make it in the morning at home... Kicking Horse... it's a lovely, freshly ground, organic, dark roast, roasted here in BC... mmmm... so good.  I do like going out and meeting friends for coffee too so thought I would combine this cute sentiment from Vogue Abode.

Hope you can play along this week.  Check out the Paper Smooches Sparks blog for all the details! Be sure to check to see what fabulous creations the team came up with this week!

  3. Love it, Glenda! The colors and textures are awesome, and I love your take on the vertical sketch!

  4. I had to check to see if you'd used a crimper or upcycled a coffee sleeve. :D Great rich colours for this fun card.

  5. This is great! I love the crimped edges with the twine!

  6. Oohh this is such a fun card. So modern and cool in every way. Love the not to the coffee wrappers with the crimped kraft paper!

  7. Love it! What a great card. Love the crimped edge and band around the coffee! Clever!

  8. *swoon* Oh, how I love this! You are so good at sketches. The colours and the bits of corrugated kraft are amazing! I love the double swirls of heart-steam, too.

  9. The crimping is super fly (I don't think I've said that since 1989--ha ha)! Of course I love the color scheme, and the little travel cup is too cute! Awesome card, Glenda!

  10. SOOOOO love this card. First, I just LOVE coffee so it is given I love this. Second, my favorite color combo and the crimping just makes me think of my 2nd favorite coffee spot - Starbucks. Fabulous.

  11. LOVE all the crimped elements - so perfect for the coffee design!
