Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes!

Hello! Word Art Wednesday is pairing with Taylored Expressions this week and the challenge is Anything Goes! Taylored Expressions is offering one lucky participant a $25 Gift Certificate to the TE Store!

For my card today, I decided to make a fun little thank you for a friend of mine who loves coffee! I started by cutting a piece of TE Sugar Cube cs and embossing it with the Brick Embossing Folder. I then used some Pumpkin Ink and a Clarity Stencil Brush to lightly brush some color over my bricks.

Next I used the Bistro Lights Cutting Plate to cut a piece of TE Toffee cs. I used the included die to cut my circles out of Cookie Monster, Lemon Meringue, Lollipop, and Pumpkin cs. I snipped off some of the strands using scissors as I didn't want the lights to come all the way down. I adhered my circle lights using liquid glue and then added some sparkle with Stardust Stickles.

To build my scene, I added some grass to the bottom using the Grass Border Die and some Peapod cs. I sponged around the grass with Peapod Ink. I then cut my bistro set out of Poppy Seed cs using the Build a Scene Bistro Die Set. I also used this set to cut the coffee mugs out of Cookie Monster cs and the flowers and vase out of Lemon Meringue, Lollipop, and Chocolate Truffle cs.

Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Koffee Time Stamp and Die Combo with Poppy Seed Ink and cut it out with a Stitched Banner Stacklets Die. I sponged around it with Toffee Ink, added it to the top of my card and it was complete! So fun!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun playing this week!
