Coffee Loving Cardmakers + STAMPlorations Collaboration Blog Hop!




Hello and Happy Friday!  We're so excited to be hopping with STAMPlorations today!  You should have arrived here from the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the STAMPlorations blog where the fun starts!

Check out the special SALE over at the STAMPlorations store:


I'm sharing two projects so let's get started!  My first project features the new Zen Coffee 2 Cover Plate.  Isn't it GORGEOUS?!  The details is amazing and you can have so much fun playing with different color combos.


Glittery Coffee = Yes, Please!  I started off by cutting the panel in black, celedon, aubergine + lilac.  This designs a ton of adhesive and some fun puzzle work. 


The sentiment is from the Bloomin' Spring Coffee Basket.  It has been heat embossed in white on black cardstock.


My second card features a STAMPloration stencil and sentiment:


I just LOVE the Leaf Prints stencil!  I easily inked it up with various Distress Oxide inks and a round ink blender.  The Distress Oxides makes it so easy...I think they blend like butter.


The distressed sentiment is from the After Coffee stamp set.


Next up is Becca Cruger!  Remember to leave comments along the way for a chance to win a $25 STAMPlorations Gift Certificate!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the complete hop listing!

  23. Oh my gracious, your coffee plate card is over the top beautiful. I love sparkle so that really caught my eye. Both cards are so awesome. When I met my husband and he wanted me to marry him, he bought me a monthly supply of coffee delivered to the door. So your "You had me at Coffee" is very fitting. LOL.
