New card with Pan Pastels. Coffee anyone?

Hi everyone!  It's a beautiful early fall day here in Michigan and I'm waiting for the leaves to start turning into the gorgeous fall golds, reds and shades of brown that we all love here in "the Mitten".  I love all the brightly colored foliage and I can't imagine a prettier place to live this time of year. 

When I first learned about pastels many years ago I ran out and bought a set of pencils.  They're fun to use but the colors in that set were very muted, much like my chalks.  So all of the talk about Pan Pastels really didn't grab my attention.  I didn't expect to get such vibrant reds and yellows as I did on this project!  I had fun with my first card earlier this month but I only used two colors on it and didn't really get to see how wonderfully they blend.  I sure found out this time!

Stop over at the Altered Pages Artsociates blog to see the rest of the how-to for this card.  There is still time to be entered into the drawing there to win your own set of Pan Pastels.  Don't miss this opportunity!  You can comment on each daily post and it counts as an entry in the drawing.  Good luck!


  1. I love your project. Can you tell me where to get the stamp with coffee beans?


    1. Thanks, Susan. The stamp is by Rubbernecker. It's an old one but it is still available on their web site.

  2. Thanks for the info. I'll check them out.
