Stamplorations and the Coffee Lovers Hop


Woo hoo! The Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has begun and Stamplorations is one of the fabulous sponsors.  A bunch of new products, coffee-related and otherwise, have popped in the store so be sure to take a look and be sure to look at how we were inspired to use them.

In my first card I used the new kettle die sprinkled all over my card front then backed by origami paper. I didn't want to waste that amazing paper but had little left so I got creative in using the Smile die. Love how that turned it out. A few enamel dots and a sentiment from the New Beginning set complete the card.

I'm entering this in AAA #86 Diecuts, Simon Says Wednesday Use More Than One Die/Punch, Coffee Lovers Spring Blog Hop

The Details:  Stamplorations New BeginningCutplorations Tag o'Coffee and Smile dies, Yasutomo origami paper, Waltizing Mouse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die, Bazzill cardstock, Doodlebug and Mark Richards dots, VersaFine Onyx Black


For my second card, I wanted to use the diecuts from my origami card so I stacked them beneath the designer paper kettle.  That's totally a kettle I would buy. I colored up the Coffee Happy cups drawing colors from the designer paper. The yellow stripe paper is from the same pad. Love that shade of yellow. Oh, duh, it just occurred to me I could have reversed the kettle die and layout so that the sentiment, as you were reading it, could have poured visually into the cup. Next time!
