Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  If you're unfamiliar with this most awesome event, please do click here to check out all of the rules (after you're done hanging out at my place of course!)  Today, I'm playing with some brand new stamps from a pretty new stamp company Ink Road Stamps!  Here's what I have for you today:


So I came across this non descript light blue watercolored background piece in my pile of abandoned pieces.  It really wasn't exciting at all... so light in color and I could have added lots more, but I decided it would be just right as a backdrop to this one.  So I stamped those beautiful flowers from the Bella Flora stamp set... beautiful flowers and so easy to color as well as a couple beautiful sentiments... you must check this one out!  **Note: I've provided a link to the Ink Road website, however at the time that I'm writing this the shop is temporarily closed for updating and will re-open later this morning and at that time I'll add links.  Be sure to check back on Lara then because there are some cool things coming!  Until that time, you can join the Ink Road Roadies group on Facebook here to get notifications and share your Ink Road creations**


So... this cup from Cas-ual Fridays... one of my very favorites!  You know I judge a coffee cup die by whether the handle is cut out...lol.. and this one has an awesome heart shaped cut out handle.... can you say perfection!  And the opening where the coffee goes cuts out separate and it's easy to just cut that part in white so you can color it your favorite shade of coffee :)  I LOVE this cup!!  (And there is a sale on Coffee/Tea themed items in the Cas-ual Fridays shop right now through June 1st!)

AND... that sentiment from the Majestic AF stamp set from Ink Road??  Perfect for a coffee card ... in fact!  But this set is not a coffee set:


IDK... the fact that I'm up right now is pretty Majestic AF and I do believe I deserve some congrats... don't you love this Sassy Unicorn??

Speaking of Unicorns, I'm playing along with the current Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #447




It was fun and easy to watercolor these big bold blooms from Bella Flora with my watercolor pencils and a water brush.  And to finish it off, I added lots of Nuvo Drop "splatters" and a few sparkly gems to finish it off.

Thanks so much for stopping today!  Be sure to come back because I'll be back today with another one!  Happy Hopping!  If you play along, I'll be visiting your place "soonish"...lol.. I think I'm almost to 400 right now.. on my way back to start visiting this morning!
