12 Kits of Occasions - Crazy for Coffee!

Yes.  April is over ... another month bites the dust!  On the very bright side - it's 12 Kits time!!!  Our leader, and hostess for this month's kit, is Tracey McNeely - who really knows how to treat us girls right!  Take a little peek at our kit:

I am IN LOVE with these patterned papers, Tracey - well, there wasn't a thing I didn't love, really and truly.  BONUS this month?  None other than amy T. is joining us for the Crazy for Coffee theme - who else?? Right?!
 
Enough chatter - here are my cards:
 
my amy-T-esque card!
 
One to add to my 'I forgot your birthday' file!
 
my favorite of those Authentique papers!
Had to use one of my R.C. sentiments - those beans were calling it!
 
LOve this Bazzil grey!!!
 
I have a friend who always hears me Venti - appropriate for her!
 
My first attempt at 'foiling' [I used Tombow glue!] and a little Keren Baker trick with acetate!
 
Well that's it for another month ... see you in what will seem like a week!  But, please head over to the 12 Kits of Occasions blog ... I hang out with SUCH talented girls!
 
Thanks, so much, for stopping by!  Cheers!

For as much as I love coffee, I don't know why I don't have any coffee stamps! These cute creations give me as much uplifting as a cup of caffeine!! Love the colors of those papers too...I'd be hoarding them for sure!

Lindsey said...

Okay, your giant mug blew me away!! I've been doing a little research on the foiling stuff and am near to being brave enough to try it out. This makes me way excited. LOVE how you colored the drink the bear is holding and how he is kind of hiding behind it...so cute. And really, they are all amazing!

cm said...

You've 'brewed' up a bev-y(-erage) of amazing cards, my friend; had to 'grind' to a halt in my scrolling a few times for close-ups! *Steamed* up my laptop screen with all my oohing and ahhing! Love them all! And aren't you impressed that I'm not too 'latte' in commenting? Yayyy...
Hugs~c (Hope my pathetic attempts gave you mocha smiles...)

Keren Baker said...

Ooh wow- these are just wonderful. Such a tonne of inspiration! I love that you've been inspired by all my acetate fun! You've really done an amazing project with that giant mug-and the foiling is every inch the perfect final touch! xx

Anita in France said...

Wow, what showstoppers, Michele ... every one! If I had to pick a favourite (ok, two favourites!) ... that first white on white with the touch of cork (swoon) ... and that oversized mug with the fabulous foiling and delicious steam ... awesome! Hugs, Anita :)

Cat Craig said...

Amazing how you all come up with such different cards! Love the steam rising on the last one.
