I am giving away a small gift card for a coffee on that post.

I have gone BANANAS over texture paste and stencils. 
 I mixed MM brown paint with the paste for the coffee stains.
Added glossy accents and Wink of Stella to jazz up the cup.

Tag Die, paper and Stamp: Lawn Fawn

Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop: Blog Candy

Very excited to be participating in the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!
There was snow on the ground when I made this so I went with
YELLOW to brighten things up a bit!
I used Shimmerz spray over the MFT Diagonal stencil for the background.
The coffee cup stamp is by Fiskars.
The cup was colored with Copics and then jazzed up with a bit of Stickles.
The "sunshine" paper and sentiment/die are all by Lawn Fawn.

  I stamped the cup image twice and layered the lid on the stamped image
and then coated it with glossy accents. 

Thanks for stopping here along the hop.
Comment for a chance to win a little
Starbucks gift card to get your favorite drink on me!
Enjoy the other projects,

Texture Challenge: Tiny Heroes

Sharing a card I made for the Simon Says Stamp "Add a Little Texture" Challenge.
This is a series I made using the My Favorite Stamps brick stencil.  I varied the colors
of the bricks by mixing different distress inks with the Ranger Texture Paste.
The hero stamps by Mama Elephant are colored with Copics.
The cloud-like explosion image is by Fiskars.
These can be used for many occasions.

I put a glob of glossy accents on the shield which didn't show up in the picture.

These are such cute images by Mama Elephant!
Thanks for visiting.

W&W Bday Challenge: Color Combo w/Heather

Joined the fun at Winnie and Walter and tried the Color Combo Challenge with Heather.
Her challenge was to use gray/silver, white, mint/aqua, and blue.
Here's her inspiration:
Honestly, I think this is one of the best cards I have made in a while. 
We all know we can make some duds, but I love everything about this one!
The colors worked beautifully together and the background stamps look awesome.
I overlapped the confetti circles and added festive dots here and there and there and there.

I used "Big Bang Confetti" and "The Big, the Bold and You"
The inks are SS navy and HA tide pool and silver.

Thank you so much for visiting!
Happy Birthday, Winnie and Walter!!!
