Getting Together

Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday!  I'm back with another card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. And I'm being a little sneaky with another peek at another new set releasing from Verve this Saturday, October 1.


After strolling through some of the cards on the Coffee Lovers hop, I was inspired to do a little chalkboard focal point.  I even remembered a pad of chalkboard cardstock I picked up a while back on clearance at JoAnn's, so pulled it out and embossed the sentiment from Get Together in white.  And here comes the sneaky part... That little laurel is from a soon to be released set called Autumn Blessings.  Swoon.  I love it.  I colored it in with colored pencils, then decided it needed a few berries to complete the chalkboard effect, so penciled in some berries and outlined with a white gel pen.

The cups are from the Get Together stamp set and stamped onto a background created with Lindy's Magical powders.  I hand cut them, and slit a hole in one with an X-acto knife to tuck in a trio of leaves/feathers (also from the new Autumn Blessings stamp set).  The leaves are cut out with the coordinating Autumn Thanks Die Set and I made another set to tuck behind the kindness die cut (from the Great Kindness Die Set.  A few scraps of designer paper (don't you just love that swirly leaf one?) and my card was finished.
