Hello Friend: A MarkerPOP Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone!!!  I am popping in today to share a fun card created for the newest MarkerPOP Challenge!  These challenges happen every other week, include an inspiration photo, and of course a prize, woot woot!!!  Take a look at this weeks challenge photo:

To play along just use at least 3 of the colors found in this photo! Here is what I've created...

I created this card by using the Altenew Be Strong Stamp set, and I was able to create a no line coloring look by first stamping the cacti with Altenew's Dye Ink in Limestone.  I then colored in my images and stamped the sentiment with Altenew's  Pure Graphite Ink.  I die cut the panel using MFT's Blue Print 31, and finished it off with some fun sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you play along with our challenge!
Happy Crafting!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

*Looking for my first post of the day?  Scroll down for more information on A Muse Studio and their newest release!

Hi!  Today I'm joining the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I'm sharing a peek at new Coffee Loving goodies now available at STAMPlorations ( psssttt - I have a code for you to save some $ at the end of this post! yay! ).

First let's take a look at the card I've created for today...

To create this card I started by stamping and heat embossing the Coffee Bags in a Row Border Stamp.  Next I went over the background with various brown watercolors letting each layer dry before adding another.  While it was drying I die cut my sentiment from the Rise & Grind Phrase Die Cut from a foil cardstock.  I layered it all onto my cardbase, and voila!

I can't wait to see what you make for this blog hop!  And one more thing... here is a discount code for you to use to save 20% off your total!!! YAY!
