STAMPlorations Inspiration #268 - New Release

Bloomin Coffee and You
Sweet Kindness

We've got a new release of two coffee-themed stamps over at STAMPlorations today, Bloomin Coffee And You, and Sweet Kindness.  My first card uses the Bloomin Coffee And You set.


I stamped and cut out the flower from the tag, swished a load of Mustard Seed Distress Oxide across my card panel, and added some of those lovely sentiments from the set.

And here's my card using the Sweet Kindness set.  


The background for this card was a happy accident.  I had stencilled some clear paste through a Pebble Weaves stencil, then when it was dry I sprinkled walnut stain coloured powders and spritzed.  A bit too heavily.  Lots of surplus colour.  So I mopped it all up with another piece of mixed media paper, and this is the result.  I love how it picked up a bit of the stencil pattern.  I coloured the image with matching colours, fussy cut and added a sentiment from the set.

Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team and to check out the prizes on offer.  Don't forget to comment!
