If you love coffee and good friends, then these new stamps are just a perfect match!!  Really fun stamps this month and I had fun playing around with the Best Friends Forever set.



For this layout I used just the sentiment part of the stamp for my title.  These cousins really are the best of friends.  I created a lot of texture on this layout by using embossing paste and stencils.  The stamping you see on the page is the journal stamp from the Journal Mixed Media set and the Crackle Background stamp.  Gesso was lightly applied to the page around the edges.
The heart was die cut using Spellbinders Circle Dies.


The paper roses were brushed lightly with brushable glue and glittered using Sparkling Snow glitter.  For the sparkly butterflies, they were die cut using SU butterfly die and glittered using Daisy glitter.


Here is a closer look at the background textures.



Now to see a completely different look using the same stamp set here is a sneak peek at a card I created along with the Born To Shop stamp set.



Check back to see the full reveal of this card.  You will see how this stamp set can be used on so many different projects.
