PDE Friday Linky Party - Coffee Tag!

If you haven't heard the news, I'm on the PDE Linky Party Design Team! Woo Hoo! It's a fun place you can link up your Anything Goes projects every week!! This is my first official post for them and I'd love it for you to check out the blog and their fun Facebook page!

This week on the PDE blog I'm featuring this fun vintage coffee tag using Shimelle's True Stories paper collection!

First I layered the grey coffee background paper over a Ranger manila tag and inked the edges with, of course, Ground Espresso Distress Ink. I added a CTMH coffee stain stamp, some mist splatters and rub on sequins to my background before I layered on an #ineedcoffee diecut by Wilna Furstenberg, which I watercoloured with Dylusions Spray Mists and Perfect Pearls. For my ribbon I used a couple different colours of Distress Stains on some seam binding ribbon. I love the way it blends together after a quick spritz with water!

The fun Polaroids were cut from the True Stories paper pack as well. I inked around the edges and stamped a Lawn Fawn sentiment on one, embossing with some clear shimmery embossing powder, and on the other I used Glossy Accents to add detail to the sweet little cup.

The coffee cup was cut from a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper in this collection - I love these colours!! I cut another layer of the coffee sleeve and lid and popped them up with foam dots to give dimension. Now I'm totally craving another cup of coffee!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope your weekend is going to be full of crafting and things that make you happy :) Please stop over to the PDE Blog and check out what the other Designers are sharing, as well as adding your own Anything Goes project!
