STAMPlorations Dogwood Color Page

I hope your doing well.  I am doing a quick and fun post for the coloring page challenge over at STAMPlorations.  Sheri was so generous to give us a page from here beautiful new coloring book, "Blooms" and since I love coloring I thought I would join in the fun.  I will have the link below.  Here is my page. 

Close up:

I spritzed the page with a brown Heidi Swapp mist and then used my Distress Ink Markers to color in the flowers.  I used the following colors, Spun Sugar, Aged Mahogany, Spiced Marmalade, and Crushed Olive.  I colored the blooms first with the Spun Sugar and then added darker mauve Aged Mahogany near the center, in the center (pollen area) I used Spiced Marmalade and for the few tiny leaves peeking out I used Crushed Olive.  I added a few dots of clear Stickles to the center of the blooms for some sparkle and wala!  All done.  This page is so lovely, I am going to color several in different ways to use for cards and projects, I just love it.

Thank you Sheri!

And hope you all have a great day.

Taste and see...

A while back I ran across the most adorable coffee set and picked it up.  I knew I wanted to use it in my Journaling  Bible .  Here is a pic.

I added this to my page where Psalm 34:8 (KJV) is which says, "O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.  This stamp set is by Andrea Gomoll and is called "Coffee Queen".    I just love the coffee cup in her hair, coffee bean headband, earrings and choker.  So cute.   I stamped my images onto a strip of white cardstock and then colored it in.  I taped the strip down with some cute polka dotted washi.  I like to do this because you can still lift up the panel to see your Bible scriptures underneath.  And I still have the side area of my Bible to journal some notes about my highlighted Bible scripture.   Which I will do later.

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you have had a great time on the hop I know I have and look forward to the Fall Hop.

Pink Coffee Pocket Letter

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a great day.

Tropical Coffee Sleeve

Today is day 7 of the Coffee Lovers Hop.  It really has been so much fun hopping.  I always love seeing all the fun creations other crafters have made.

For  today's post I have made a fun tropical coffee sleeve.  For this I used the Layering Hibiscus Stamp Set from Hero Arts.  It is just so fun.   Layering stamps can be a little bit of a challenge if you have never used them, and each set is a little different, but once you get it down, your good to go.  Here is a pic.

Isn't it just so pretty.  I just love it.  My son saw this sitting on my craft desk and thought I had purchased it.  He was so surprised I made it.  To make it, just simply take a cardboard coffee sleeve apart and then trace it with some cardstock or paper.  For this one I used white paper.  Then I stamped it and using pop dots to adhere it to the cardboard sleeve.  I used glue dots to adhere the pieces together.  They worked very well.  I think it's best to let it sit for about 24 to 48 hours to let the glue dots adhere really well.   Then you can use it.  Here is a pic of it on my cup.

So fun huh!

Well, that's all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Today is day 6 of the Coffee Lovers Card Hop.  If your hopping, I hope your enjoying it.  I am.
For today's card I went for a fun glamping scene.  I really wish I was doing this right now.    Although the heat index here today is soooo high, maybe not.  Ha!  Here is my card.

So cute, huh!  I stamped off the little cup from a stamp, fussy cut it out and added it to the table.  This whole kit came from a paper company called Photoplay Paper and is called Happy Glamper.  The whole kit is so adorable.  

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you have a great day.

A Little Something...

Today is day 5 of the Coffee Lovers Hop.  It has been super fun as always so far.
For today's card, I kept it pretty CAS.  Here is a pic.

I added a light wash of color using Ranger's Pickled Raspberries Distress Ink.  I then stamped my cup and sentiment which is from Precious Remembrances and called "Coffee Love".  And last, I added a Kate Spade Bow clip to the cup.  These are just so sweet.  I love them.

That's all for me.

Thanks for stopping by,

Latte Love

Today is day 4 of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
For today's card I did something that has more of a summery Southwestern feel to it.  Here is a pic to show you the feel I had in mind.  This is Sedona Arizona at dusk.  Isn't it just beautiful!  The credit for this photo goes to  

And here is my card,

I used my Ranger alcohol inks and photo paper for this background.  The ink colors I used are Citrus, Sailboat Blue and Watermelon.  The stamp set I used for the cup, beans and sentiment are from Stamplorations and is called, "Latte Love".

I have to tell you how as a crafter I am constantly amazed at the wonders of God's creation.  He truly is an awesome God!  And his marvelous works are always an inspiration to me.

I hope you have a great day.

I'll be linking up to the following hop and challenge:
