Easter Trio - Coffee Loving CardMakers Spring Blog Hop + Giveaway

It's time for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring Blog Hop and I've got a ton of fun packed into this post.  You're going to want to hang around for just a minute or two.  

I've designed a trio of cards with my own hand drawn little chicks and my own lettering with  Tombow dual brush black marker, and paired my designs with papers from Doodlebug Designs along with a few other fun little touches.





We want you to join the fun as well and link up a newly created project that is spring themed and features coffee, tea or cocoa images.  We have a ton of sponsors who are giving away some amazing prizes for this week long event.  Here's your link with all the information.  It all begins today at 6:00 am pacific time:





My first card features my hand drawn chick with coffee cup and my hand lettered sentiment that sits in a chat bubble die cut from My Favorite Things.  I also cut out some washi tape clouds and drew an outline to make them pop.  All my papers are Doodlebug Design Under the Sea and Swiss Dot papers.  All the hillside stitched dies are from Stamplorations and my adhesives are from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.






My second card features another hand drawn chick with a different hand lettered sentiment.  This little guy is holding a "grande".  I do love my grande's!  Oh, and I drew some fun eggs and colored them with my Zig Clean Color brushes in Oatmeal and Emerald Green.  I'm not gonna lie, I was a nervous wreck drawing this sentiment.  I'm not so confident in my skills that I wouldn't totally goof it up and have to chuck the entire project, so I first mapped it out and drew my sentiment first, then added all the elements around it.  Whew, got it on the first try and didn't have to waste any cardstock!  By the way, all my colored images were colored on Strathmore Marker Paper.  To achieve the light effect on those eggs, I used a TH waterbrush and blotted with a paper towel.  





I had a little help on my last card.  I was looking for another good sentiment to go with my trio and asked for my teamies to chime in.  Becca came up with "You are one hot chick."  I love it!  I lettered it in a childish, chicken scratch kind of way.  The butterflies are from one of Becca's Big Grin stamp sets at Stamplorations.  They're stamped by swiping 3 different Tombow markers across my butterflies in yellow, pink and blue, spritzing a little water, then stamping on my cardstock.





All of my chicks were also colored using Tombow dual brush markers.  I had so much fun creating these cards.  As I promised in one of my posts recently, I'm having a giveaway in celebration of the CLC Spring Blog Hop.

One lucky commenter will have the choice of receiving your choice of coffee, tea or merchandise from our local roastery, Southern Girl Coffee, not to exceed $15.00 limit or a Starbucks gift card, same value.  Woot!  How fun is that?!  

Simply leave a loving comment and tell me which one of my chick cards is your favorite; 1, 2 or 3.  Good luck!
