I fell in love with a new stamp company, "Mint Owl Studio"  Stamps are cute, stencils and sequins outstanding!

This is their Coffee Craze set, I'm not a coffee fan but the set has "Ice Tea" which is my favorite beverage in the world.

I colored the images with my Copics and actually cut them out by hand.  Paper, ribbon and ink used to stencil is Early Espresso from Stampin Up,  my favorite brown! And I used my Fuse tool to make the shaker, so easy!

Challenges:
Simon Says: Stencil It
Ribbon Girls: Anything Goes with ribbon
Chocolate, Coffee, Cards: Circles/Square
