My Final Entry for Spring/Summer Coffee Lover Blog Hop

Tomorrow morning is the cut off, so this will be my last entry to the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover Blog Hop of 2018.   I really enjoyed playing along and hope to play again when they do this later this year.  I believe they will have another one in the fall/winter. 

This stamp set if from Ellen Hutson.   The strings on the balloons are from a balloon die set from Lawn Fawn.   The sentiment is from The Stamps of Life.  

Thank you,

Iced Latte

My fourth entry to the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's blog hop.   Here in Texas where the temps are hitting 90 degrees, an Iced Latte sound wonderful.

All stamps and dies are from The Stamps of Life.

Coffee after Hibernation

This is my third entry to the Coffee Lover's blog hop.   I think it's so funny to see a bear with coffee.  But I know after hibernating I need some caffeine.  lol!

You can't go wrong with these Flip-it card bases.  Once again I used products from Stephanie Barnard from The Stamps of Life.   The paper is from a paper stack by DCWV called "The Garden Tea Party Stack."  I used Tim Holtz Oxide Ink to watercolor the bear and accented it with watercolor pencils by Faber-Castell.  I attempted a no line watercolor technique on mixed media paper.  

Thank you, 

Caffeine Wild

My second entry to the Spring Summer 2018 Coffer Lovers Blog Hop.

All products used including inks and paper are from The Stamps of Life.

Spring Summer 2018 Coffee Lovers Hop - 1st Entry

My first entry to the Coffee Lovers Hop.

All products are from The Stamps of Life, except for the doily background die cut, which can be purchased at Lawn Fawn and the flower embossing folder is from Sizzix.  The image was watercolored with Tim Holtz distress inks and Prismacolor Pencils.

I'm really liking this new background stamp by Stephanie Barnard:

I thought it would be fun to combine with "lightbulb2stamp" using the pattern that like the background stamp.    Other products used for this card "patterns4lightbulbs" and "light4Jesus."

With this card I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks and water.   The die word "Celebrate" was part of a SOL card kit.  Other products  "cake2stamp" and it's coordinating die. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Penelope's Blossoms in Water Color

Hi excting!  Lawn Fawn has started a challenge blog.  They have such cute stamps, but unfortunately I'm behind in my collection of them.  Dang!  that money tree won't grow fast enough.  BUT I'm lucky to own a bunch, so I thought it would be fun to try the challenge out.

I decided to break out my Tim Holtz distress markers and try some fun water coloring that I had viewed on YouTube.

I simply stamped the flowers using the markers on water color paper and then with a small brush and some water I soften the color giving a fun artsy, airy feel.   

Here is a list of the Lawn Fawn supplies I used:
