Day 1 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
It's the day we've all been waiting for! The Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is off to an amazing start and even though I've blogged twice today, I wanted to join in with the coveted prize I won from the Winter Hop. A huge thanks to Lil' Inkers Designs for the amazing Latte Love stamp set and Dies.
I'm the first to admit that I stink at real stamping so I bought myself a Misti. All was well while stamping the cup with black Staz-on, the coffee in brown and even the over stamping with (semi)opaque white for the yummy crema. I stamped on heavy watercolor paper so I could try out my watercolor crayons but it all went to hell when I went and stamped the sentiment.
I think the paper was too heavy for the magnets as I had to use the foam with the clear stamps and it seemed the paper jumped a bit with my first try, so when I reinked and stamped again, I had a shadow. Okay fine, so I'll just use the matching die to cut out the cup and I'll restamp the sentiment but so you think I could find it? Honestly, I just HAD it! I turned around and it was GONE (buried under the stacks of stuff covering every surface of my craft room) sure to be discovered at some later date, but not today. So please pretend that the shadowed sentiment was intentional. It's actually starting to grow on me and the way I see things anyway without some sort of vision enhancement. Cheers!
I'm also entering this in the Outlawz Sunday CAS Birthday Card challenge and Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #54 AG.
