Coffee And Cream With A Hint Of

So much fun the DT had working on "Coffee And Cream With A Hint Of" at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!  Stop by FSC and she what my talented DT sisters came up with!  The "Hint" is dark chocolate.  Now you can go with colors or as I did, "Coffee and Cream"  literally!  Please come and join us with a cup of coffee or tea for some stamping fun!   We are also linking this up to Creative Inspirations "Monochromatic."
For this tag, I pulled out my stamps related to the "Coffee and Cream" theme!  The stamps are from I Brake For Stamps.   I wanted to create a "faux designer paper," which is a technique from the Technique Junkies, so I combined several of the stamps to create the background.  The coffee grinder was stamped, cut out, colored and then clear embossed.  I also did a little stamping on the coffee grinder.  Added a little tag using Mr. Holtz tags and tickets die, stamped on some cream colored crinkle ribbon and finished it off with the cappuccino bakers twine!  I even tied a successful bow!
Marina from Cottage Crafts is our sponsor and look at the lovely stamps you could win just by joining the challenge at FSC!  I wish I could join! 

I just found out that I was voted as one of the "Spotlight Artists" over at City Crafters Challege Blog for this! 
Paper:  Stampin Up Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla
Inks:  Stampin Up Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Stazon Timber Brown
Markers:  Stampin Up Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa

HI Terry
Congratulations on being a Spotlight Artist!!!
Fabulous Fashionable DT sample. I so wish I had used my Oxford Impressions' Afternoon Tea set but time was against me for creating something in time (I already that my stamps all stamped up and stored for quick use)
Great composition and just so well thought out.
Wishes
Lynne
