Lucky Day 7 of Coffee, Stamplorations and ChouxChoux

 
Welcome to Day 7 of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  I've been spending some time collecting coffee stamps and other java paraphernalia since my first hop last Fall but have not nearly used enough of it.  So today I picked a set from Stamplorations and a set from My Favorite Things that I hadn't used yet.  I'm joining in Stamplorations Theme and Sketch Challenge and also the Easter/Spring Challenge over at Choux Choux Paper Art.

 
Those stacked cups are from a Stamplorations set called Coffee Happy... I decided to color them solid colors since I have so much else going on on this one.  That adorable bunny is from My Favorite Things and the set is called Somebunny and those eggs are from a very old retired CTMH set.  They were the right size so I was happy to re-discover them! 
 
Now.. just a side note.  I blame Amy Tsuruta, Superheroine and fearless leader of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop for all of my purchases that occurred as a result of finding this awesome tri-annual celebration of stamping and hot beverages.  When I post my pics on Instagram I tag my projects that use these purchases with #amymademebuyit.  Right now, it's me and some girl whose friend Amy apparently made her buy a hat.  I think we should all start tagging our creations with products we won or bought as a result of this hop with ...
 
#AMYMADEMEBUYIT
Let's claim it!  You know it's her fault you bought it anyway!
 
 
I digress... so the theme of the Stamplorations challenge is Texture and Stamps.  I had so much fun using my coffee stain stencil from the Latina Crafter...first I used it to sponge some inks and then keeping it in place I applied some clear embossing past.  It's so hard to see here, but I LOVE the way it looks.  And I added a little more texture by embossing the yellow base... it helped me decide to color her pretty little dress yellow... amazing how she managed to keep that dress clean while making such a mess coloring those eggs!


So ... here's a story... on the Stamplorations blog they suggest that if you create a CAS card you can also link up to their Clean and Simple Challenge with your Theme/Sketch challenge card.  So yup... I was gonna do that.  Well... not so much... the first to go was the "C"... yeah... fingerprints everywhere... and then of course "S" had to follow because .. well, I had to add stuff to cover up the messy bits...lol!  I just don't think I'll ever be able to make a Clean and Simple card.  Too much of a slob.... shrugs shoulders...  guess I'll leave that to the experts... and I don't think I better wear a yellow dress while crafting.
 
Anywho!  Check out all of these challenges and the blog hop and join in!!  Prizes.... Prizes.... Prizes!!!

  6. I love this card! It almost reminds me of an Alice in Wonderland kind of theme! And even tho it didn't end up being a CAS card everything you added works so well together I can't imagine the card not having any of the parts you incorporated! Also don't feel bad I been trying to do the CASology challenge and I seem to have the same problems! Lol. Keep trying!

  23. Hahah - reading through this post had me rolling. It's my whole crafting process, in a nutshell. "Ok, Becca, this time you're REALLY going to do CAS" Twelve smudgy fingerprints later and I'm cursing the day CAS was invented. LOL
    LOOOOooooove the litany of colors going on here. Thanks for playing in the STAMPlorations challenge!
