Coffee with Friends

Brace yourself for more Caffeinated Piggys.  This is a CASE from the Papered Chef.  Isn't that a clever name?  Like Pampered Chef, but with Paper!  There are several changes to my card, but the basic idea came from ... well, it just occured to me I don't know her name, only the name of her blog.

I just love it.  So stinkin' cute!

Early Espresso - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Coffee Break Designer Series Paper - 5 1/4" x 4" (coffee beans)
Pear Pizzazz - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Coffee Break DSP - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" (blue zig zag)
Powder Pink - for the Piggys
Coffee Break DSP - fussy cut coffee pot and coffee cups
Whisper White for Sentiment - stamped with Early Espresso and Garden Green

Remember to prevent wasting this great Coffee Break DSP cut out the middle (that will be hidden behind another layer) so you can use it elsewhere.  

Notice the piggy with the cup, I made a little cut where the mouth is so he / she could hold the coffee cup for easier pouring for the angel pig.

Inside I stamped some coffee beans to give a little border along the bottom. 

It's going to be a HOT HOT week in Phoenix, and really, in all of Arizona.  I'm not looking forward to this week.  We hit 120 in Phoenix in 1990 and believe me I remember that day well!  I worked for the State at the time and didn't have covered parking. At the County, where I work now, thankfully we at least have a parking garage.  Still not looking forward to it!

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Monday!

  1. Your card is so fun. I tried to Google the Papered Chef and couldn't find it. I figured she would have some great ideas. I love the tie in cup about friends and the one pig serving the other. So cute. Donna, have you played with the new paste stuff and the cloud stencil? I bet it is fun with great results but I have not tried it. Make whipped cream for the lattes? You are having a lot of fun with the pigs set and the coffee set aren't you!

      I have not played with the paste yet, but I plan to. The girl who has next month's workshop would like to see it, so I'm going to get it and practice.

      I'm having a blast with the piggies! LOL
