Fun with a Coffee Cup!

Happy New Year friends.

DRS Designs has a fun new Paper Coffee Cup image and I have had some fun playing with it this past week!  For my first card, I made some paper bacon and eggs using water color paints, several layers of gel medium, paper and a heat gun.  I used a brush to splatter on some real coffee in the bg and added the fun new paper coffee cup and part of the Hugs, Kisses Valentine Wishes Greeting.

On my second card, I used two of the paper coffee cup images, added the new Coffee and Friends Greeting, and added some little playful critters:  "Shell"don The Turtle and the new Love Bug.

My last card is super easy.  I just made another coffee cup and did the bg with an embossing folder and a ton of Snowtex.  I was trying to express that coffee is warm when the weather is super cold outside:  Warm versus Cold.

Hope you are all staying warm.  It is even freezing in Central Alabama and that is saying something.  I can't complain because it will mean less bugs the rest of the year.




  1. Super cards Nancy, they are all fabulous but I especially like the first one - your bacon and egg look brilliant.

  5. You are hereafter and forever dubbed The Queen of Texture, Nancy! I am blown away by these cards! If you haven't done a video or step-by-step of making those bacon and eggs, you should! And you're telling me it SMELLS like coffee, too??!! I've never seen anything that realistic on a card!! The critter card, of course, stole my heart, and the warm v. cold, especially right now, is a textural treat!! Happy New Year! Hugs, Darnell
