So I've Got All These Stamps

My merwitch card the other day had me thinking about my stamps in a new way.  How can I stretch them to get more usage?  I'm very fortunate to get to play with a lot of different sets and I find it ever so easy to use the set once or twice then move on to my next obsession.  So wasteful really.

It was lovely this round to use a new set (thanks for letting me borrow the HA Coffee Cups Tags set, Kimberly!) and pair it with the older HA Stamp Your Own Succulents set.  Sa-woon!

I traced out where the "coffee pot" would go then stamped and masked the succulents before stamping the pot.  I colored the succulents using all sorts of Copic green (particularly love the BG93-99 gray green combo).  I added red Stickles berries to the burro tails in keeping with the fab Jen Hadfield background paper.  So very pleased with how this turned out.

I'm entering this in Hero Arts Holiday Cardmaking Challenge, Little Tangles #73 Coloring, Inkspirational #119 Use 5 or More Stamps

The Details:  Pebbles Jen Hadfield Warm & Cozy 6x6 paper, Hero Arts Ombre Light Ruby to Red Royal, Coffee Cups Tags, and Stamp Your Own Succulents, Memento Tuxedo Black, Waltzing Mouse stitched scalloped rectangle dies, Copics, Ranger Red Stickles
