Picture perfect coffee with friends - say what??

I'm always having hard time figuring out the titles for my postings.
The following two cards have something to do with the title - well - I guess it helps if your title has something to do with the content of your posting - eh?

The first card is using two of my TOP sets. Banner Blast from the Sale-A-Bration (I surely hope Stampin'Up! will bring this set, or very similar, in their upcoming Annual catalogue - I would assume so, since the banner punch will be available in that catalogue).

The second part that I just love is the Peachy Keen stamp set and the matching On Film Framelit set - I actually learned that some of the dies in that kit are not framelits, but thinlits. And what is the difference, you may ask? - Framelits JUST cut, whereas Thinlits also emboss!! So you are actually supposed to layer them differently on your cutting pad too. The Framelits are layered: magnetic platform (or your regular BigShot multipurpose platform too), card stock, framelit (cutting side downwards) and cutting pad on top. Whereas the Thinlits are supposed to face UPWARDS so the layers are: platform, cutting pad, THINLIT facing cuttingside up, cardstock, cutting pad.

And did you know that you can also INK your thinlits!!  I actually did that on my camera! I inked the thinlit with Calypso Coral - you just have to make sure your cardstock does not move - otherwise it can be very messy :-) But you can also get the similar effect with core'dinations papers!

Oh and there is a third favourite on this card too - the Hardwood stamp :)

The second card I cased from someone - I just forgot to write the name down (sometimes I just get so excited about the design and forgot to write the name down).

This one has an embossed ampersand shape at the background. Mine didn't pop up enough, so I did this thin "stitching" with my marker on the edges. I wonder if it would turn out better using core'dinations paper....

The splatters are from Gorgeus Grunge set using Crumb Cake, Real Red and Crisp Cantaloupe inks. The coffee cup is stamped with Early Espresso (twice on Whisper white and once on the pattern paper. The lid and the pattern are cut out and mounted on top of the full image of the cup. The straw is a striped paper cut in an angle (both the straw and the "sleeve" are from Fresh Prints paper stack.
