Making Valentines and Coffee

Yesterday we were stranded at home and needed something for RC to do, so we made his Valentine's for pre-school. I had seen these Trident Gum Holders at Halloween and they are so easy.
I cut and scored the paper, RC punched the holes with the Word Window punch and then he put the frogs on front. I had colored those the night before while we watched TV. He was super excited to take them already, but we put them up to wait.
Since we were home bound all day, I got quite a few cards done. This set was still out & I thought it looked nice and warm. Esp. since I was enjoying my coffee all day yesterday. Sorry that the picture is so bright. Ugh.
This was pretty simple. I stamped the images (cup and foam) with Stazon and then cut out. Mounted on some Brown Bazzill that I stamped the steam in White Kraft ink. I stamped the straw separately and cut out and glued behind the cup. You can't see it well, but I stamped the coffee beans on the bottom part of the card.
When I was done, I used Crystal Effects on the cup and Liquid Applique on the foam. Looks sooo yummy!

Stamps: I Like it a Latte - SU!
Ink: Stazon; Real Red - SU!; White Kraft
Paper: Kraft card (unknown); Black Prism; Chocolate Bazzill; white Prism
Other: Liquid Applique; Crystal Effects; May Arts Ribbon
