Coffee Loving Cardmakers Collaboration Hop with Not 2 Shabby

Hey there and welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
We are super excited to be collaborating this weekend with the folks at Not 2 Shabby!
 They have a few new Fall/Coffee themed digi's 
I chose this cutie pie called
Pumpkin Spice Everything
I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out!
These images were very easy to color, and because it's a digital image, you can resize this to what suites your needs!
I had so much fun with this one, that I used the same image for this next card, too
These colors a more muted than my first card. 
I tired matching my colors to the pattern paper..I love the blue sheer ribbon, that ties 😉 it together

I used 

I started with red cardstock
Embossed the paper with the cable knit folder.
Next I used the Scalloped Circle Frame Dies
 from PS to cut my pattern paper..
For the coffee cup, I stamped and heat embossed it with white ink and powder.
Fussy cut it out (I don't have the dies :(  ~
Stamped the peppermint stick (dies make life so much the dies) 
Yes, I fussy cut it, then I cut a tiny slit in the cocoa for the stick to slide through.
I did the same with the cupcake  (stamped/colored/fussy cut)
I used white seam binding and Sweet Borders,
 Sweet Cuts/ Circle Scallop Frames,

Only one pop dot was used this time 😉 on the cute little coffee cup
Kraft paper and twine are from Papertrey Ink
A few shiny little leaves from a sequins pack from my stash.
