Aurora Wings Double Showcase

I'm thrilled to be joining the Aurora Wings Showcase Team for a fabulous Double Showcase of the two brand new stamps Mitzi released today.  As you might know, I participate in the seasonal Coffee Lovers Blog Hops and am an avid coffee drinker, so I'm so excited to be showcasing Coffee Sprite, available in jpg HERE on and HERE on Etsy.  I've made sort of a criss cross pocket card using dies from Heartfelt Creations.  The sun and sentiment are clear stamps from Verve, cut with a matching die.  I chose the mix of papers, including one of my fave digi papers from the Java Love pack to give a sort of retro Coffee Shop feel. 

Here's a closeup of Coffee Sprite.  Isn't she perky?  (Hee Hee!  Couldn't resist.) She's also available in png form HERE on and HERE on Etsy if you'd like the option of printing her to color directly on a digital paper or background.  I've colored with Copics in bright fresh colors of the digi paper and fussy cut and popped her in the area of the saucer and left part of the cup, in case I might want to add another tag or gift card in the pocket behind her.

Here she is again with the little sentiment tag out of the top pocket.  The tag itself is cut with Spellbinders Labels Eleven, the Verve sentiment is cut with Scalloped Labels One.  The pretty mint crinkle ribbon is from the Spring Bundle 2 from DL.Art.  I have so many fun coffee sentiments it was hard to choose but Coffee Sprite is such a doll, I know I'll be using her again and again.

Now if you paid attention to the post title, you'll notice that I said a DOUBLE release.  Wanna see the other GORGEOUS new stamp?  Of COURSE you do, but nope, no "sneaky peeky", ya gotta click HERE.  But before you do, just in case you want to do a little shopping this weekend... 

and don't forget our challenges.
