Instant Mom Coffee Lovers

Hi friends! The Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop is here and I'm so excited to see all the fabulous coffee creations over the coming week! This morning the boys have their Kindergarten field day at school, so I got up early to write my post while I drink my morning cup of joe. Hopefully I can write this quickly, but I do have a surprise to share with you!


There are two new limited edition stamp sets in the shop today! Hooray! We have limited quantities of these sets on hand and they're only available while supplies last, so if you see a MUST have, snatch it up, quick!  Verve is a Super Sponsor, so there's a chance to win these sets by linking up a new spring/summer coffee/tea or cocoa creation to the official Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post.

Today I'm sharing with you my first card using the Living on Coffee set. The sentiment Instant Mom, just add coffee is how I feel most mornings, so I started with that. I had almost given up on ever getting my Zig clean color real brush markers to blend when I watched one last video on them.  I've been hearing that paper matters with these markers, but figured high end watercolor paper would do the trick. This time I really listened and decided to get some Canson Smooth Bristol paper, and guess what?  The paper REALLY matters! LOL  The blending on this paper is pretty magical and I colored all the stamped florals from this set while watching NBA playoffs with my boys.  Win win.


The blending was done with the markers and a clear Wink of Stella pen. I love the shimmery look it gave. The flowers were so fun to color, then I finished off with fussy cutting them all. I recently snatched up the fabulous Girl Power set by Sweet N Sassy Stamps, and thought one of the girls would make the perfect match for the sentiment. I colored her in, drew in a little v-neck and some arms and then accented her hair with one of the blooms.

I used one of the dies from the Lacey Frame Duo die set for a little accent and then found pretty much the ONLY papers in my stash that matched the colors I picked to color with!  Haha. I'm a really slow learner! Or just too giddy about jumping in and coloring!
