Newton's Coffee

Hi!  It's a long weekend here in New Zealand and I took advantage of that to add another day on either end.  So on this cold Friday, I'm snug in my craft room having fun 😄

I wanted to play along at least once with the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop so I combined that challenge with the gorgeous colors at Time Out and the sketch at Newton Nook to come up with this card.

I colored up this adorable image of Newton and die-cut him with the co-ordinating die, before putting him to one side to focus on the rest of the card.  Onto a white card base, I stamped the sentiment and the image of coffee beans in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I then layered up some Black & White striped paper, a Ripe Raspberry gingham stitched fishtail flag and a Sour Apple stitched fishtail flag.  Around that I tied some black and white baker's twine - man, it's been an age since I used baker's twine!

I framed Newton with a stitched circle die cut from Ripe Raspberry cardstock and popped it up on foam tape.

I love these bright, fresh colors - so nice for us down under who are heading into winter.

Thanks so much for visiting!
