Coffee Loving Cardmakers + Fun Stampers Journey Collaboration Hop!








Hello and Welcome to the Fun Stampers Journey  |  Coffee Loving Cardmakers Collaboration Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the fun which is the Fun Stampers Journey Blog!



I had so much fun playing with:




Here's how I was inspired:



I did a bit of watercoloring on my first card and some black flecks of paint.  I love that big ole sentiment from the Coffee Helps stamp set.


The To Go Cup is from the Coffee First Die Set.  Love the added details on the coffee sleeve.

My second card features one of the cups from the Coffee Helps stamp set.  Can you tell that I colored it in the palest aqua color?


I added the fun Hello Word Bubble available via Fun Stampers journey.  You can't readily tell that that circular panel has been backed with black cardstock so with a side view, it adds a bit more detail to the overall design.



Next up is my teamie, Kerry Urbatch!  Remember to leave comments along the way for a chance to win!!!!  My teamie Kerry is also doing a giveaway!

I absolutely love these cards! The addition of the wooden sentiment is probably my favorite part. But then I love the speckled background too. And the watercolored background... There is so much to appreciate on these two cards.
