Rise and Grind

Hi friends! Today is the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March Inspiration Hop over on Instagram. I'm sharing this springtime card featuring a few of my favorite sets. Of course if I'm picking favorites, a little coffee is sure to be involved! LOL

I absolutely adore the bunnies and chicks in the Hoppy Spring set illustrated by Jennifer Nilsson. As I was deciding what to create, I happened to see the I Like Big Cups set, and thought how cute the bunny would look on the to go cup image. So I just had to test it out!

I started by stamping the cup onto white cardstock and then masking the lid and outer areas from the cup. I stamped the bunny image from Hoppy Spring with the mask still down and peeled it up for a little masking magic.  I then colored with copic markers, using a dotting technique to give a fluffy look to the bunny's fur. I then cut the coffee cup out with my Brother Scan 'n Cut.

The little chickies are just too cute not to stamp, so I stamped them, colored them up, then cut with the coordinating Hoppy Spring Dies. The sentiment is from the Coffee Talk 2 stamp set, and I stamped it onto a circle die cut that I had blended with white ink, then glued to the center of a small blue doily.  For the background I went with a chicken wire embossing folder, then finished off with a satin knotted bow.

Be sure to head over to Instagram for all the inspiration along the hop, plus a chance to win a $25 gift code to the SNSS shop. It all starts on the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Instagram page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day. Spring is just around the bend!
