Pick Me Up!

Good Morning and Welcome our final  day of
 Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March New Release Blog Hop!  

This final set, Pick Me Up,  will put a smile on any coffee lover's face! 

Sweet little images are perfect for embellishing this coffee mug.  Here, I used the open and filled in hearts to embellish the mug. The heart is filled in with Crystal Effects.  I used the chevron style arrow to create a background.  But I have to admit, my favorite little embellie is the steam image.  How cute is that??  I think it is just darling popped up on a dimensional. 

For this card, I embellished the coffee cup with a die cut heart and used the sweet burst of steam again. I embellished the bottom of the card with the tiny row of hearts stamp.  This stamp is sooo adorable!  One singular rhinestone adhered to the heart die adds the finishing touch to this card.
