MilkCoffee Showcase – Dies & Punches

Hello!  So where is April going?  I can’t believe that it is Easter already but that means I am off for a few days so I am not complaining!  And then there’s the chocolate…………

So the time has come round again for the MilkCoffeeShowcase and the theme today is Dies & Punches! I’m not too sure if I have ever made a card without using dies or punches so this was an easy one for me.

So the MilkCoffee image I chose to use is the ever so chic Tiffany Get Her Daily Dose of Coffee available here, who I thought might enjoy a leisurely stroll through Paris whilst getting her caffeine fix! Well who wouldn't!

Dies & Punches:  Spellbinders ‘French Frills’ & ‘Romantic Rectangles 2’ – Memory Box ‘Vintage Lamp’ – Tattered Lace ‘Beautiful Blooms’ & ‘Ornate Leaves’- Tonic flower punches- EK Success ‘Dotted Scalloped’ Edger Punch
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White - Kanban ‘Lavender Lace’– American Crafts
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Pencils & Mineral Spirit – a touch of ‘Dusty Concord’ DI
Others: Gems from stash

Check out all the amazing designs by the DT and visit the MilkCoffee shop to see all the fabulously sweet images they have.  And don’t forget to join in the current challenge on the challenge blog which is Easter!

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
