Cup of Roses

 I can't say enough about the latest release from STAMPlorations!  There are so many fabulous coffee/tea themed products just in time for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!
 

 My card and envelop are featuring two of those new STAMPlorations stamps:  A Cup of Roses and Row of Roses.  The images are so gorgeous...even with my average coloring skills, they look amazing :)  The sentiment on the tag is from Fond Expressions 2 (a definite 'go-to' sentiment set for me!) 
  
 



Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #241 - Color

 I think Spring is really trying to get here, but I still have Christmas in my heart!  Welcome to this week's Merry Monday Christmas card challenge!  Deanne has a wonderful challenge for us: Create a Christmas card using red, green and white -- easy peasy, right?!

 

 For my card, I blended some Distress Oxide Ink for the background and used this darling WPlus9 image Holiday Hugs - just makes me feel "warm" all over!


 Be sure to check out the fabulous projects the rest of the Design Team has to share with you!



 So excited to see YOUR fabulous creation in the gallery!

 

Smile In A Cup

 There is certainly something special in the day's first sip of coffee...it makes me smile!  Another thing that's makes me smile is that the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop is still going on - yay!


For my card, I started with this wonderful Cream & Sugar pattern paper from Doodlebug (6x6 pad).  They must have known it was Coffee Lovers Bloghop time :)  

 

 I stamped and paper pieced the cups from The Greeting Farm Perk Up set and this little cutie is also from The Greeting Farm: Mini Remix Brew-tiful.

Brew-tiful!

 My flowers and trees are trying so hard to bloom, but our temperatures have been going from 60 degrees to 30 degrees literally overnight!  At least it can be Spring in my craft room -- even if it is on a coffee cup -- which is perfect, btw, for Day 3 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!
 For my card, I chose several wonderful STAMPlorations products.  First, I stamped the large cup from Winter Mug then stamped the French Marigold stamp on the Winter Mug off to the side a bit.  I colored the flower then fussy cut the cup.  To finish, I added one of the new coffee CUTploration word dies:  It's a Brew-tiful Day.

 Today is Day 3 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop fueled, mostly, by lots of coffee/tea and tons of creative juices!
 

 For my card today, I started by gold embossing this fantastic coffee cup image from the new Paper Sweeties stamp set: Keep Calm and Drink Coffee then created a watercolor background.  To finish, I added this wonderful sentiment from the You Warm My Heart stamp set and pretty Paper Sweeties Watermelon Sequins.

It's A Good Day...for Coffee!

 The title of this post is a little deceiving because EVERY day is a good day for coffee!  Actually,  for me, coffee it makes it a brew-tiful day and the fact that it's Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop time makes it a perfect day!
 

 

For my card, I started with this new background die cut from Reverse Confetti: Striped Frame Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.  Then I paper pieced this sweet coffee cup from Uniko: I Love Coffee set (which I'd won in one of the Coffee Bloghops!).  This delightful word die is new from STAMPlorations: It's a Brew-tiful Day Phrase die.

Java Great Day



Day 2 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop has been amazing!  I've been really inspired by so many wonderful Spring coffee/tea creations -- and we've only just begun!
 
 For my card, I began by creating a watercolor background using Distress Oxide Ink Pads (reeeeeally lovin' this product!)  These absolutely ADORABLE coffee-themed images are new from STAMPlorations: Coffee Petites and the set includes the stitched circle CUTplorations, too!  To finish, I used another new STAMPlorations goodie:  Java Great Day Phrase Die.  This die can be purchased by itself or in a set of 5 Coffee Phrases (and, yes, it's ok, you do "need" them!)
