Day 5 Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring Blog Hop and Heartfelt Creations

Today marks day 5 of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring Blog Hop.  Let me just say, there's an awful lot of coffee, tea and cocoa drinking papercrafters out there.  Count me as a lover of all three but, coffee?  Yup, that's my go-to.  Every day, multiple times a day.

I thought it was the perfect time to, again, ink up this amazing stamp from the Heartfelt Creations Coffee Talk collection, including the papers that I'm using.


Since it's a Spring themed hop, I chose spring colors for my cup which was stamped with distress ink and colored with Zig Clean color brushes.  I added some dots with my gel pen and texture with a scrunched up paper towel and white pigment ink.  I really do love this stamp, which, by the way, is just a partial stamped image.  I thought it would be interesting to only stamp part of the cup which is amazingly huge at around 4".

Additional features on my card include stenciling with The Crafter's Workshop stencils, Powder Puff chalk ink and more distress ink.

I'm thrilled that Heartfelt Creations is a Super Sponsor of this blog hop.  If you haven't discovered all that Heartfelt Creations has to offer, start with the Coffee Talk collection.  It's absolutely amazing.

Now, if you stuck around long enough, you'll see that I absolutely cannot let a fabulous blog hop like this go by without doing something special, so I'm going to be giving away a little blog candy via random draw to those who comment on this post or any other posts that I link up this week.

How does a $10 Starbucks gift card sound?  Good luck!
