Coffee Lover's Spring Blog Hop...STAMPlorations Style!

Hello,

Woo hooo...time for the Coffee Lover's Spring Blog Hop, where yet again, our incredibly talented, energetic, dynamic Amy and Chaitali as our hostesses, assisted by their fantastic team of dedicated coffee-loving crafters.


For this round, over 67 (that's right...sixty-seven!!) sponsors have offered up prizes! Talk about generous!

One of those amazing sponsors is sweet Shery, from STAMPlorations, who has an absolutely delightful array of products in the Coffee/Tea Lovers section of her store. Be sure to take a wander through...you will be dazzled!  And yes: I am enabling you!  So much fun stuff to be had!

To launch the hop, I have the honour of joining the STAMPloration family to showcase a few of the charming coffee/tea products.

First up, a loosely water-coloured (yep...did it! Distress inks) A Cup of Roses, placed atop a panel cut from the  Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies that I smooshed using the saran wrap technique I learned from a recent Splitcoast Stampers video. The background and roses both sport the same colours (worn lipstick, spun sugar, tea die and just a wee bit of picked raspberry and peeled paint), in lighter/darker shades.


My second card features a Stained Glass ARTplorations Stencil,background (picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, abandoned coral), on a Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies panel and, in the starring role, the fabulous mug and sentiment from Brew-tiful Day~The Bee's Knees,


Third, another bout of water-colouring, this time with an assortment of images from Coffee Happy stamped onto a  Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies panel,  Coffee o'clock: love it!


Since you have a LOT of hopping/creating to do, I'll sign off...for now. I'll be back with more STAMPlorations cards soon. Very soon!

Why don't you jump on a plane and we'll have coffee together?!! Wouldn't that be fun?! Maybe I'll just have to call you and we can "coffee klatch" over the phone. Anyway. Great cards.

  41. Your watercolored roses are wonderful, Carol, and I love the saran smooshed background with them. The cup pops off the colorful stenciling and the all over stamped and watercolored images are terrific.
