I've noticed, just this very moment, that my cards haven't been very Spring-y! It could be because I haven't any signs of Spring yet, besides my tulips that have started to peek - that nasty four lettered word is in our weather forecast ... enough about that!
I have started to follow a very talented, sweet, and enthusiastic card-maker - really a true artist: TaeEun of Rainbow in November. TaeEun made this card, which was the second sign that I really needed to get my hands on some alcohol inks! Now I didn't have exactly the products she had, but decided to give it a try just the same.
For the Spring Coffee Lovers, my Third Cup:
Okay. This will be my example of what NOT to do with a wonderful little water-color paper called Yupo: it does NOT stand up to heat embossing - it would be best to use the glossy cardstock that TaeEun used.
I've managed to salvage my little Perfect Blend cup, which I stamped with VersaMark and white heat-embossed, by cutting it out and using plenty of foam adhesive. I've used Hazelnut alcohol ink for my coffee - he hee! - and Pool for my china cup and saucer =] Wish you could see this ink in action, friends. It is magical!
Thank you TaeEun for all the wonderful, inspiring, gorgeous cards on your blog!
Thanks to amy T. for giving us this time to create, and drink coffee with friends!
Yeah... I don't like my motives questioned either... :) Great card! Love the fresh look of it!
Love the bold and vivid colors on this beauty. Very fun.
Gorgeously bright, and brilliant!

Michele...this is one fabulous card and I love your wonderful sentiment, so much fun.
Wow, I love the colors of this one Michele! Your coffee cup and coffee look fabulous. I love how the "coffee" looks like coffee with cream added before stirring. Just looks so real to me! Love the sentiment too. Hugs, Brenda
Great color effect Michele!
Great sentiment. Lovely colors.
Look at you breaking out the bold bright colors gain!! You go girl. That sentiment is a hoot!!
oh my...I adore this...big time.

I love the fun color combinations in your card! So cheerful!
Oh, my, this is so fun, my friend!!!!! I love your blue china cup and that coffee looks extra creamy and somewhat chocolaty, too!!!! Maybe I should try adding some chocolate to coffee - now that might end up in a great drink ...hmmmm I think I should try it!!!! Love the vibrant lime and the fun twine!!!! Such a great third cup!!!
Have a great day, Michele!!!!
WOW wow WOW
WONDERFUL card Michele!!!
LOVE your AMAZING design, FABULOUS colours and FUN sentiment, LOVE IT ALL!!!
What a fabulous card and that sentiment is beyond perfect!
What amazing results you ended up with on this card, Michele. Your "first try" should not be your last as you definitely created CAS magic with the alcohol inks :-)
Not agree!!! Very springy and fresh! Love the idea, trying to look in my coffee cup right now and wondering how you got such a realistic look, Michele!!!
Amazing effect with the alcohol inks! The colors are so vibrant and gorgeous. Love your color combo!
Such a cool card, Michele...I feel your pain as I have had to cut out something for salvage more than once! Now I love to stamp on something else and cut it out instead of ruining a whole card piece trying something out! This turned out fabulous! Happy Wednesday and Happy Hopping!
Alcohol inks? You're really branching out, Michele. You'll have to show me these when we get together. I'll bring the glossy card stock.
Love that hazelnut look! I haven't had much success with alcohol inks on paper like this. Some day I must sit down and watch some tutorials!
I love how you always work with what you have, and with AMAZING results! This is such a fabulous card, Michele! Your watercoloring is awesome and I LOVE how you created your coffee...Stunning card!!!
I'm a huge fan of TaeEun, as well...she is a true artist!
