Come on back tomorrow for more FAVORITES!! 

  One of my all time favorite MFP sets is:


 These first two cards are ones I made last year with this set.

I made this card this week using the smaller cup from the set.
I also used the coffee rings stamp. I combined the coffee cup image with burlap, puzzle pieces, cheesecloth and a little wooden piece that says "Coffee Time" I stamped the cup and  rings with black stazon ink. I watercolored the cup. I added gold wink of stella to the cup as well as copper metallic sharpie marker. I took three puzzle pieces and on the back side of the piece, one I painted with cream acrylic paint, one I used Inka gold copper metallic rub and the last one I took a black sharpie marker and colored it in. I like the texture that the burlap and cheescloth and sewing add to the card. Thanks for taking a look.


  1. Great textural card MariLynn - love how you come up with these fabulous cards with loads of texture.

  2. Fun card! Love the addition of the puzzle pieces and the coffee rings are just perfect ♥

  3. All of your cards are fantastic and the last one reminds me of family days, tea and jigsaws....TFS!
