Hi everyone! It's Jodi here with you today and I am beyond thrilled to be guest designing for Waffle Flower! I have created two cards today using the darling Warm Wishes set! As you may know, I LOVE coffee, so I was so excited to work with this set! Warm Wishes 1 For my first card, I took a panel of white card stock and watercolored the background using my Zig Clean Color Markers. Once the background was dry, I stamped the coffee cup and sentiment. I added a light shadow using Copic Markers and then finished off the card with a trio of rhinestones. Warm Wishes 1 Closeup For my second card, I started with a panel of white card stock, and using four different ink colors, I stamped the coffee cup in a repeating pattern to create the stamped background. I added a band of card stock which I stamped with the circle and oval images in the set using white pigment ink. I wrapped the panel with hemp cord and added a bow. Warm Wishes 2 I stamped the coffee cup and sentiment onto X-Press It Blending card and then lightly colored them, and added shadows to them, using Copic Markers. I LOVE the little face stamps that come in this set! SO darling!! I popped the focal panel up onto the card base using dimensional tape, and then added a trio of enamel dots to finish off the card. Warm Wishes 2 Closeup Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my cards using Warm Wishes! -Jodi Thank you for sharing with us today, Jodi!

I am not much of a coffee drinker in the warmer months, preferring my caffeine cold and in the form of Diet Coke, but over the holidays, I love to savor a warm cup of coffee at the start and end of my day. In anticipation of my caffeinated tradition, I have a round up of fun coffee-themed finds to share with you today. Check it out:
