Aussie Tree Huggers by Angel's Landing

Coffee of the Day - Caramel

I'm using some of my new, adorable digi stamps from Angel's Landing. These images are just wonderful and print out so nicely! and they're cute to boot! ;)
eta - Judi just sent me an email and she has posted my card on her blog for Angel's Landing. Wow! how cool is that?!?! I am so excited I almost spilled my coffee! She really is wonderful - you should go check out her blog and website!

The card base is some of the 'coffee paper' that I made several days ago and mentioned in a prevous post. I don't know what else it might be officially called, but this is what I like to call it! I took some used coffee grounds prior to tossing them onto my garden and sprinkled them onto some SU! natural white cs. Once the grounds dried, I just brushed them off into the garden (you could put them in the trash if you want - I like to compost mine). They leave such a way cool effect on the paper. More projects will come using this same technique.

Decorative papers are Basic Grey Archaic collection, chipboard leaves and sentiment are from Colorbok My Wildlife eco-friendly collection & sanded to distress, and buttons are from S.E.I. I like the way all the elements come together on this fun card!

Have a great day! :)
Jennifer

p.s. I'm also using this card for the Wacky Wed. Challenge, which is to use buttons and/or chipboard on your creation. It just so happens I used both! :) It also fits for the Digital Tuesday Challenge to celebrate Earth Day - use green and brown on your card. This is about the most eco-friendly card I've ever made!

Jennifer, it is so exciting for me to see how other designers have used my images. You've done a marvelous job here, especially on the detailed coloring for that little kookaburra.

I like the earth tones and rustic textures that you've chosen, too. They are totally appropriate for the Australian Outback.

Thanks so much for the inspiration. :D
