Another Thursday Blog Candy

Vicky here is week, happy Thursday.
Thursday means some more candy!
The first card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the parchment colored card stock. The saying is from Crackerbox Palace and is also on the same parchement colored card stock as the background and cut out with a Spellbinder die. I used a VersaMark pen around the outer edge to darken it, (the card stock is so light it doesn't show up to well).
I used a Spellbinder die it cut out the frame for the saying.
I also used a VersaMark pen on the outer edge of the frame to darken it. I added pearls of two different colors on the 4 sides.
 The next card has our coffee sun stamp. I stamped it and cut it out with Spellbinder die as well as the scalloped mat behind the image. I colored it with Copic markers.
I cut out the saying and sponged ink around the edges.
I added a real coffee bean for my embellishment. If I was sending this in the mail, I would probably just stamp a coffee bean.
I hope you enjoyed the cards this week.
