Sending you a Whole Latte Love ...


Good morning and Happy Friday! October came in with a bang, which mean Fall has arrived here in Northern, Illinois. Brrrr ....

It's Release Week at Sami Stamps today, and we also have a NEW Challenge for you to play along with for the month of October! 



This week's Release is called Cats in Cups ... 


This adorable image is called Cup Kitty 2. Before printing the image I laid another digital stamp  over the cup. The sentiment is part of the Latte Love Digital Stamp Set that I received from Verve Stamps Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  

Once printed I colored the adorable kitty with my Copic Markers, distress ink and daubers were used to apply color to my cup, and then I fussy cut it out to add to my layout. More distress ink was applied around the edges of my card, and I finished off the card with some enamel dots.

My design was inspired by the Muse Challenge #135 (shown below)


Here's a closer look at Cup Kitty 2 ...

Copics: E93, E95, E97, E99 & E07
