Timeless Tuesday #248 ~ Score It! Pierce It! Color It!

It has been a little busy with the Thanksgiving Holiday and cooking for family, but so wonderful to have them here. Today, it was put away the fall decorations and bring out the Christmas. Got one tree up, and the mantel decorated with new things this year. Got some of the outside decorations up and will finish tomorrow, weather permitting. Should be good. Tomorrow the upstairs tree will go up. That's a big job!
So I had time to make a card, as it is relaxing for me to do. This one is for the Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes. I used the stamp set that I won recently. They are so generous at Flourishes that I have won the October and November releases. I chose to work with Grab a cup. I think that I have enough Christmas cards, so I am back to friendship cards.

I stamped the coffee beans and the word coffee on to the background paper from Paper Stash by Tim Holtz. The cup of cappuccino was fussy cut and colored with my Copic markers and the I added crystal effects to make it shine. I used pop dots on the cup and the spellbinder die that it is on, before mounting to the base. The sentiment was stamped in Dark Chocolate and the edges were torn and then sponged, but before mounting, I added some brads on each side. Then, if you look closely, you can see that I pierced the steam that is coming out of the cup and added a little heart to each one.
So, I scored the background, pierced the steam, and colored the cup!

What fun these stamp sets are to work with.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and make a comment.


  1. I love it! I see your pierced area, the scoring and your beautifully colored coffee cup. Good job, it looks great!

  2. Love the piercing of the steam, clever! This happens to be one of my favorite subjects, just in case you did not know that! lol Good Luck! Love your card.....I need to get busy and catch up! :)

  3. I am so glad you used this set. It's one that I won (as you know) and I wasn't sure how to use it. You have certainly inspired me! Very cute to make the steam. I always forget about piercing, it works good with butterflies and other bugs too. Your card is simply genius my dear! Love, love, love it!

  4. This definitely warms my heart! Love that you made that mug RED and those sweet hearts add so.much to your adorable design! I am so glad you could play along with us this week at Flourishes for our Timeless Tuesday Challenge! :)
