STAMPlorations and the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + Extra Prizes!


Heads up, STAMPlorations friends! There's a fun blog hop starting today for those of us who love or enjoy a cup of coffee! The hop is hosted by Amy Tsuruta and Chaitali Narla.

Amy and Chaiatali have invited 20+ sponsors for the hop, including STAMPlorations, who are offering tons of fabulous prizes! Play along by creating a spring-y themed coffee, tea and/or cocoa project. Post it on your blog and then link it up at the linky found on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. The linky is open until Friday, March 6, at 11:55 p.m. PST (GMT-8). Winners of sponsor prizes will be randomly drawn!


Here are a couple of cards to inspire you:




PERK UP! One Layer Card
For this card, I dabbed Distress paint (Barn Door) through the ARTplorations Coffee Cup stencil and stamped the sentiment from the Vignette: Eat Drink Be Merry set. For the spatters and frame, I used a dark brown Japanese watercolor brush pen.


LATTE LOVE One Layer Card
This card is the result of my not wanting to waste any of the Distress paint that was on the stencil I used for the first card. I laid the stencil face down onto the card base and brayered over it to transfer the paint. I loved the artsy, painterly result! I sponged some light brown ink through the ARTplorations Latte stencil and stamped the sentiment from the Sentiment Builders: Love set in black ink.


BLOG CANDY ALERT!


Spring will soon be upon us, so to celebrate, we're giving away extra prizes in case you're not able to link up a project or two by next Friday.

Here on the STAMPlorations blog, you could win a $10 gift certificate to use on the shop or the ARTplorations Coffee Cup and Latte stencils that I used in my cards.
