Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Woohoo! It's time again for another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - celebrating Spring!! - because it is coming you know - believe it or not…..and why don't you make a card yourself?-  there are some fabulous prizes!  Celebrate all things coffee - or tea or course!!

I chose to use some beautiful Papertrey Ink products - new and not-so-new :)  I die cut and stamped the coffee cup image from Scent-imentals in Aquamist dye ink along with Classic Kraft.

I popped the image up onto one of the new Watercolor Wonder papers and then stamped the sentiment (from Bitty Bouquets)  I adhered that to an Aquamist background.

And what a perfect sentiment - Coffee - what's not to love?!

You're Grrreat!

For this week's My Favorite Things sketch challenge, I really wanted to use my new Pure Innocence Roarin' Good Day!

Using the new Dienamics Pure Innocence die - (I LOVE these matching dies - no more fussy cutting - not that it was such a big deal to trim and trim and trim- but this is so much faster yay)…I die cut this cute little tiger - stamped the image with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and coloured her up with my copic markers - very easy with this little image!

By semi-following the sketch ;) and using last month's Free with $60 dies, I die cut my patterned paper and adhered it to my white card base, along with a small strip of Black Licorice card stock along the bottom.

I popped up my coloured image and stamped the sentiment in ALL THAT WHITE SPACE - ugh I have trouble stopping myself from totally filling up that area!

The sweet little diecut paw print was adhered just to satisfy my thirst for all things NOT white space.

White space you can be so evil….

Color Throwdown - Happy Birthday

I have a new stamp set - go figure - from My Favorite Things called Spring Tulips, and I thought I would stamp it up for this week's Color Throwdown.

It is a very quick and easy or clean and simple or just a plain jane card - whichever way - these colours bring out the gorgeousness of the stamps!

I used my Blueprints #1 Dies - I love the large scallops in this rectangle - such an elegant die - and I added a few layers to jazz it up a bit!

I stamped and coloured the pretty tulips with my copic markers and then stamped the sentiment with MFT Black Licorice Hybride Ink - a brilliant black ink….love!

Why don't you try out this week's Color Throwdown! - Have fun!

Celebrate Color Throwdown

This week's color's are so pretty for the Color Throwdown - and when green is involved I can always get flowers to be my centre stage!

I used the new-to-me Altenew Painted Flowers stamp set - so pretty and every colour can be used in my personal opinion!

I used Pure Poppy and Plum Pudding for the roses and Aqua Mist and Simply Chartreuse for the leaves.

The sentiment is from Altenew Label Love - LOVE this set!

So pretty!
