Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with STAMPlorations

Hi Everyone. 
I am here with two cards today for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. As you may know, STAMPlorations is one of the super sponsors of this wonderful hop!

Image may contain: text

I am lucky to introduce to you the brand new Tag O'Coffee CUTplorations set. I used it for both of my cards. It is just too cute! I also used the fun COFFEE die and the sentiment is from an older set


I used almost the same supplies for my second card. Added the Framed Coffee Word Art as background for the tag.


I colored the die cuts and gave them some shine with a white Sharpie. The sentiment is mounted with foam tape.

STAMPlorations Inspiration #124

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

This week we are featuring Deepti's stamp line Dee's Artsy Impressions.

My stamp supplies:

I love the Lotus Love stamp set - it is just so very pretty! This time I combined it with a Sizzix embossing folder. I water colored the Lotus blossoms with the no line technique and the leaves regularly. Softly sponged the water lines from the embossing folder and added the sentiment, as well as some clear Nuvo drops.

At our  Inspiration Project posts have a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate. So look at all those fabulous cards the Inspiration Girls made and leave them some love! It may pay off :)

From March 21 to 27, all Dee's Artsy Impressions stamps are 10% off (no coupon needed) + the Power of Words stamp set is 20% off (no coupon needed)

(that stamp set is older than one year, I think and the embossing folder is definitely ancient)

Hi Everyone,

just dropping in with a quick card that I made for the CASual Fridays challenge - off the edge.
Time to pull out my old Amazeballs set. It had collected some dust ;)

I took those bubbles and stamped them with Versamark onto water color card stock - off the edge. First I thought I would use Brushos, but then I changed my mind and did some sponging with distress inks. Added some water droplets to loosen it up a bit. Added the sentiment - its from the same set. Of course I could not resist to add a thin strip of PP on the side.

Stamp Connection #23

Hi Everyone,

Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja from Little Art Cottage and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 3rd Sunday of the month and this is our ninth transatlantic get-together!

And again, we have a guest with us - its Rosi Gouinaud from Lets Take Time and stamp with Daeny's. I met Rosi through blog land a long time ago and fell in love with her unique cards and her kind and wonderful persona!

This time it was my turn to pick the requirements:

acetate, but no shaker

The inspiration for this card I found with Hannelie from Desert Diva - she makes the most brilliant cards and her blog is an endless source of inspiration! I CASEd THIS card of hers.

For my card I used We R Memory Keepers egg dies, my favorite bunnies from Impression Obsession and the grass die from Clearly Besotted. The sentiment is from Papertrey. Believe it or not, but it actually took me forever to make this. Played with endless combinations of backgrounds, different colored bunnies and where to place everything. It looks like it should have been done in 15 minutes... But I was finally happy with this. Major mojo problems right now...

Lets check out Rosi's and  Tanja's artwork!

Guest Designing at Challenge Up Your Life

Hi Everyone,

I am so honored to be guest designing at Challenge up your Life. I won one of their previous challenge with THIS card and that is my reward :)
I am so happy! 

The theme is just to my liking - its CHEVRON - love it!

My old TAWS stamps (the company unfortunately does not exist anymore now for more than a year) did not get much love lately, so I jumped on the opportunity to ink up this fabulous chevron stamp I have from them. The birds are also by TAWS. the sentiment is by Paper Smooches.
I used Color Bursts for coloring. Added white Sharpie accents and tiny Nuvo drops in red.

Perhaps you also have some chevron stamps that need some love - ink them up and play along!

Happy Stamping!
