The Fall 2016 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Circles

clbhfall2016edited

Hi! I’m very happy to have you visiting my blog today. I know your time is precious and hope that you enjoy your visit.

I’m not a coffee fan myself, but my husband likes it a lot. So, I have grown to think of coffee with a warm feeling because the smell of it means that he’s probably home. 🙂

I Love Coffee

Today I have a 3rd card to share with you that I designed with STAMPlorations products for the Fall CLBH.

img_2302edited    STAMPlorations is one of the FAll CLBH sponsors and Shery has a bunch Coffee & Tea lover themed products in her store.

Here’s a closer look at my card:img_2308edited

 I love this new STAMPlorations set – Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamps & Die Set by Shery.

 Besides the stamps from Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamps & Die Set,  I also used the ARTplorations stencil Flourishes and STAMPlorations Big Greetings.

How I made this card:img_2304_edited-1

  1. I made the background by sponging on parts of circles through a homemade stencil.
  2. I did some reverse stenciling by inking up the flourishes stencil and stamping onto water color paper.img_2309_edited-1
  3. I then sponged orange ink through the stencil into the negative spaces.
  4. I stamped the travel coffee cup on top off the stenciled watercolor paper. SheryRuss_AnywhereTheresCoffee-preview
  5. I fussy cut the cup.
  6. I added black circles with Sharpie around the colored circles.
  7. I stamped the sentiment.img_2309edited
  8. Attached the cup with foam tape.
  9. Matted the panel.
  10. Attached the panel to the card base.img_2304_edited-1

 I really enjoyed making this card and I hope that you enjoyed seeing it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your visit.

Grace & Peace,
Melissa
