Jumping right into it, I absolutely LOVE sentiment stamps and alphabets that our outlined so that I can leave them as is or color them in! I know, I know — ombré is probably on its way out of the fashion trend, but I still love it in papercrafts! The best way to create this effect is to use the feather technique with Copic pens.

For my card, I used the following Copic colors: E000 | E21 | E23 | E25 | E29

I’m one of those that colors from dark to light and I truly think that it’s the best way to create the ombré effect. I always lay down my darkest color and then flick/feather in my lighter colors after. Excuse  my messy markers; it’s been a long time since I’ve given them a cleaning!

Adding in some extra sweet: I truly think that every coffee lover needs this Cuppa Coffee in their stash so I’m giving away the stamp set and throwing in some Coffee Crisp and Aero chocolates into the package for good measure! Coffee Crisp is a Canadian exclusive and is one of my faves!

Leave me a comment telling me what’s your favorite snack with coffee for your chance to WIN.

  41. Chelsea Tubin says:

    I have a couple of favorite snacks with coffee. I think my first favorite is Milano milk chocolate cookies. When you dip them in they become soggy almost instantly and the chocolate starts to melt. It’s amazing. My second favorite is donuts. Almost for the same reason but also . . . I mean come on. Who doesn’t like donuts.

  42. Swldebbie says:

    My favorite snack is something crispy and mildly sweet – like an almond biscotti.

  43. Your Ombre words are beautiful!!!

    My favorite snack with coffee is a cookie or two!
    I take my coffee black so that I don’t have to feel as guilty
    eating the cookies, because there is 0 calories in my coffee 🙂

  44. My favorite snack with coffee is a Maple Bacon donut…..

  45. Love a super chewy oatmeal raisin cookie or toffee cookie with coffee. Yum!!
