Coffee Lovers' Summer Blog Hop - A Cupful of Love



I'm trying to use up all my bits of stencilled and gelli-printed card, and this piece was just big enough to stamp the coffee cup on then fussy cut out so that I can play along with the Coffee Lovers' Summer Blog Hop.

The wonky stitched frame is one of the new range of CUTplorations dies from STAMPlorations which are coming out in July.

I'm also playing along with Virginia's View, where it's all about colour.


My coffee cup background started off by sponging Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral onto white card, then using a wet acrylic block to bleach a pattern (you can just see some of the bleached areas).  I didn't like that very much so I sponged Picked Raspberry through the hearts stencil to pretty it up.

And I'm playing along at CAS Mix Up where the theme is Stamps + Die cuts + my choice of sponging, bleaching and stencilling.
