It just so happens you have hit one of those prize stops!!!  I am giving away the Trinity Stamps LLC - Coffee with Character stamp set.  WOOHOO! 



On to my projects!

Here is my first card:



It is a love affair between these two adorable cups!  These are from that same Trinity Coffee with Character Stamp Set I am giving away!  Soooo cute.  I love that this was created with legs, arms, eyes, etc.   First I die cut this Hero Arts Circle.  When it was I stamped and colored the cups with my Copics.  Being that the handle can move from side to side, it was perfect to get these love cups close together.  I added the eyes, mouth and face.  The splashes and sloshing coffee were hand drawn using my Copics.  The drips coming together at the top make the perfect platform for this woodchip heart that I colored and highlighted.  Once I had my little lover's ready, I cut this DP base using my Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die.  The sentiment is from Trinity's Caffeinated Sentiments set. 

Next Up.....



.... TA DA!  Coffee is the star of the show!

This one started out with these adorable pets from Your Next Stamp.  They are from the Cool Cats and Paw-some Pups Sets.  They are super fun and I enjoyed coloring them with my Copics.  They are prefect to show off this delicious coffee which is a die cut from Fun Stamper's Journey.  Once I had the vision in my mind, I put them on this flashy blue stripped designer paper that I cut with Avery Elle Wonky Stitches.  I stamped the sentiment and then sprinkled these stars around, which are from a Memory Box die and some star sequins.  Finally, I put it on a red based to draw out the red in the card.

Last but not least is my Halloween Card:



The funnest thing about this card is that almost everything these characters are wearing is made from the Trinity Coffee With Character Stamp set!  The dies are YNS.

The clown was my first idea and I build them all from there. The Clown uses the whipped cream and colored rainbow Style.  The nose is a red pearl and the glasses are a die from YNS.  Up to the left you will see the Movie Star.  Her hair is from the steam in the set.  Again, the glasses are from YNS, I colored them red and added rhinestones to the sides and a diamond earring on the ear, which is made out of a portion of a cup handle.  Top right we have the Safari Guide.  His mustache was hand drawn and colored and the hat is a combo of a plate and dome lid, masked and stamped together.  Last but not least on the bottom right is my fave, Maleficent.  Her collar is from the coffee steam and her horns are made from a croissant!  I think that was my most brilliant moment in the whole thing!  You can see below for the various parts of the coffee set.  But first, I want you to know that the backdrop is the YNS Photo Booth Panel Die set.  It was the perfect layout for these cuties.  I loved adding the SMILE in the middle with highlights and the Happy Halloween sentiment from Lawn Fawn.  The Doodlebug star bling was the final touch. 

Adding this one to the YNS challenge 98




OK, I hope you enjoyed this and will head over to Chris' blog next!
