Coffee Lovers Spring Blog Hop


It's Spring and time for Coffee Lovers Spring Blog Hop!

I love playing along with fellow coffee lovers.
They're so generous with sweet comments, and come on,
coffee? It's the best!

I made a card using The Ton's stamps and dies.
They're a sponsor for the hop.


Just in time, I received my order from SSS, of Ranger's Distress Oxide Inks.
They are fun believe me! After watching a couple of videos, 
and playing with a few colors, I was happy with this background.
White embossed Rose Garden Cling stamp,
then combined Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Spiced Marmalade,
and Fired Brick. The inks blend rather seamlessly, and when you
spritz with water, they become more intense.
I fussy cut the cup from Ton's Tea Party, stamped with PTI's Spring Moss,
white embossed the dots,and masked the cup 
so I could apply sponging with selective colors.
Then I added shading with copics W1, & W3.
Before popping up the cup, I stamped the heart steam image
with Fired Brick & Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
'Fabulous' sentiment also die cut, from the Ton.
Lil Inkers Stitched frames.
PTI cardstocks.
Come Play along for a few more days!
