Coffee Talk With Shona and Coni!!

Here's a fun idea, right!  Each of the Girl Fridays has invited the designer of their choice to join them here for a special guest design post. Together they've chosen a set to work with and then we let their creative mojos take over! The best part is we get to see the fabulous results!

Today is Shona's turn and she has invited the delightful Coni Longley to join her for a little Coffee Talk! How fun is that?! Coni has been a long time supporter of CAS-ual Fridays so I am tickled pink to have her here today on the blog!
Shona and Coni have developed a fast friendship despite the fact they've never met in person and live in different countries. Don't you just love blogland?? This special post will be fun and inspirational for you, but for us, it's also a celebration of their friendship AND I hope it honors all the friendships that have been formed because of our crafting hobbies. I think we can all relate to this :)

Are you ready? It's time for some watercoloring and Coffee Talk with Shona and Coni!!
First up is Shona

Love the way she washed the color on for an ombre look. She used the inlaid die cut technique to cut her Coffee Cup Fri-Die and then lay it right back in. It gives a cool embossed look, and keeps her card flat for mailing. The sassy sentiment from Coffee Talk will surely deliver a smile to the recipient!

And now, you get to meet Coni through her work! Hold onto your coffee cups!!

Now THAT is a whole lot of watercoloring goodness in a cup! I love the drip of coffee running down the side and onto the counter and don't even get me started on her steamy coffee hovering above the cup! I'm totally doing the happy monkey clap!

Starlequin background and a pretty washes of color...yum! She decorated her To Go Cup die cut with our Mon Ami and colored it in the same colors as her background.

Yay! She cut a whole set of little coffee mugs and watercolored each one in a happy color. Don't they look delightful against the kraft background?

Lastly, she used our new Heart to Heart background stamp to decorate her Coffee Cup die cut. 
This one is just fun to look at isn't it? So many little details that go into making this and the result is pure fun!

And THAT is how we do Coffee Talk with Shona and Coni!
