September Coffee

For the month of September, Unruly PaperArts Blogozine has a great theme for the Reader Art Quest.  The prize (winner chosen by random draw) is two stamp sets from UPA sponsor Altered Pages.

If you follow my blog, then you know I belong to the Coffee Loving Papercrafters group and have lots of coffee themed items to work with.  (This group is having a link-up blog hop at the end of the month with lots of sponsor prizes.)  So of course I jumped at the chance to make an inspiration piece for this RAQ.  Although you may choose only to use the color scheme in your make, I had to go with a coffee theme!!!!  And what's better than a warm cup of coffee as the weather is turning to chilly autumn days??? Although I love my coffee any time of year!

This is a digital hybrid.

All of the heart papers and the dot paper for the cups are from My Artistic Adventures Etsy shop.  As you can tell, I joined two patterns together before printing out the background.  I used two more patterns when making the coffee cups, by placing the ping files from Hero Arts Caffeine Fix digital set on top of the patterned papers, printing, and layering.

Sentiment is printed, edged with black marker, and built up with foam adhesive.

Steam is from Paper Smooches stamp set.
Coffee word is A Cut Above die from Verve stamps.`
Baker's twine is Stampin' Up
Misc. letters and heart trim from stash

This is so much fun!!! I'm loving all the paper piecing and the hodgepodge of patterns you used! Absolutely FAN-tastic. For the Unruly challenge, can you link up cards? Or does it have to be altered art?
