Cup of Love

Hey y'all! Happy, Friday! :)
Shelly, here!

Today I have a sweet coffee card to share, using the new Cup of Love stamp! Also, today is the start of the Coffee Lover's Summer blog hop! Yay!



So here's my card.


Since 'Summer' is the theme for the Coffee Lover's blog hop, I thought I'd do some watercoloring in some fun summery colors! I used a couple of distress markers then spritzed some water over my stamp and on my paper. After, I stamped my image. Which I did this process several times until I liked how the watercolor looked. ;)


Once my image was dried, I used one of the Polka Dot Rectangle dies with it. Then I used another one of the dies with my background paper, as well. After, I assembled my card together. I kept things fairly clean and decided I'd top things off with a little twine.

So what do you think?!...I'd love to hear! :)
