I Love Coffee and You

Working with STAMPlorations products again for a few more challenges.

I'm casing Deepti's card which can be found in the 4th post HERE
and linking my card to:
1) the Inspiration CASE Playground HERE
2) their Anything Goes challenge HERE and
3) their February Hearts and Stamps challenge HERE



Back to the casing:  Instead of using a pre-printed background, I chose to create a shaded background as demonstrated by Nonni HERE with the ARTplorations Hearts All Over Stencil from STAMPlorations and used the following Ranger Distress Inks:  Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Festive Berries.  I did use canvas to create the banners but wasn't happy with the look, I think because I was using muted tones rather than the vibrant variety Deepti had-- so I saved only one and switched to washi tape..  Stamps used are from the Eat Drink Be Merry STAMPlorations set.

And, course, I'm linking this up to the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop HERE (my second entry at #136)
