New Coffee Stamps + Gorgeous Gelato Sunflower Card

Hello Friendly friends! I've got two cards to share with you today and I'm so excited because I love them both so much! 

The first card I'm going to share is one for the current STAMPlorations sketch & theme challenge and was made by blending all sorts of of gelatos together. 


I stamped sunflowers from The Birds and The Blooms stamp set and the Happy Sunflower - Large set and then I added multiple shades of gelatos and blended, blended, blended. 


Next, I masked off the sunflowers and used a scripty stamp from the Mixed Media Elements set. 




I used the sketch the theme to complete my look. 


I finished it all off with twine, some Distress Inks around the edges, and a handwritten sentiment.

I'm sending this card along over to play with the following challenges: 
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes 


---------------------------------------------

My second card showcases a BRAND NEW stamp set! You all know how much of a coffee fanatic I am, so this set is perfect for me. It's called Coffee Happy and is available for the first week for 10% off! 


For my card, I  stamped some of my favorite images from the set and shaded around with gelatos to highlight the stack of cups. 


I added a doily and a frilly bow. All of the layers were inspired by the current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown - Layer it Up. The color scheme inspired by the current challenge image at The Challenge


Psssst - make sure you stop by the STAMPlorations blog because they are giving away one of the new Coffee Happy sets.
