Coffee and Clouds

I need to share my Card Positioning Systems card for this last week.
 The Stamps of Life was our sponsor for this week and I picked this really cool coffee set of stamps to play with.  The set comes with this large coffee cup and then a variety of stamps to use on the front of the cup and other extra words. 
 My main coloring was done with Copic markers and then I used a stamp from a "tree" set to repeatedly stamp in the cream colored areas to stamp a texture.  The doily shapes are cut with my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge.

And, I need to share some fun stuff...
I have been playing with a new app on my phone - the Hipstamatic camera.  This app is an old fashioned kind of camera. It comes with a variety of lens and films, these can be mixed and matched and you can also buy more lens and films.  I have had so much fun playing around with what my favorite lens and films are. 
This camera also works in that you are taking the photo with this camera. Some other camera apps work that you can use any photo you take and alter it.
 This photo was taken with the Lucifer VI Lens and the Kodot XGrizzled film. 
This photo was taken with the Jimmy lens and the Kodot XGrizzled film. 
I have tried many combinations and I am learning what my favorite are. I will be sharing more photos in the future.
Thanks for coming, Linda (lbpost)

What a cute, cute card, Linda! Absolutely adorable. that coffee cup is fabulous. Love the sentiment, too. I think it's so cool how you stamped texture on the cream paper. Never would guess that was a tree stamp. Love, love the die cut doilies and the hemp tie.
Really fun photos, too. I can see how messing with all the different setting could be a ton of fun. :)
