Springtime Coffee

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
Hi friends! I'm back today with a quick little card I made for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I was the lucky winner of a prize from the Winter CLH blog hop and was so happy to receive a little bundle of coffee goodies from Impress.  hey included some sweet little coffee brads, a few fabulous coffee stamps and a couple of Fresh Ink pads. Thanks so much, Impress... they are so appreciated!

I just love this big coffee cup stamp, so stamped it in Chocolate Fresh Ink, then used a watercolor brush and water to color using the chocolate and cocoa colors.  I finished off with some white pencil and a bit of grey shadowing around the cup.

I had a leftover piece of water colored paper that I thought was perfect for spring, so I cut it down and embossed the sentiment from New Beginnings in white.  I then stamped two of the flowers from New Beginnings on crumb cake, embossed in white and cut with the coordinating Springtime Stitches Die Set.  I tucked in a couple leaves cut with the same set and accented with a pearl. My white panel is embossed with a stitched clouds embossing folder and then I tied some baker's twine around the panels and accented with one of the fun little coffee brads I received. Aren't they so cute?
Well, it sounds like my boys are about 15 seconds from civil war, so I'm calling it a post.  :)  Happy hopping!
