CLBH - Stencil twofer revisited

Oops, I have just been made aware that I should have created two separate posts for my two cards for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, so here is my FIRST card again. Yes, I know, I really messed up...

Anyway, I had great fun playing with my new stencil and using my limited supply of coffee-themed stamps. Do check out the amazing inspiration at the hop, if you haven't done so.

Please see my previous post for a list of  the materials that I used.

I'm also linking up this card at:

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Stencil twofer

Hello everyone! I'm back with two more cards for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I decided to revisit a technique that I used on this card back in March. This time, I decided to use one of my new ARTplorations stencils.

For my first card, I used the Tim Holtz spritzer tool and some Tombow markers to create a vibrant background. After carefully lifting off my stencil, I sprayed the stencil lightly with water and placed it onto a second cardstock panel for a mono print.

I will add the list of materials and links to other challenges tomorrow ...

Stencil: ARTplorations stencil - Emanations
     Sentiment 1st card - Literary caffeine-ations (STAMPlorations/Becca Cruger)
     Sentiment 2nd card - Coffee break (Whimsy Stamps)
     Coffee images on both cards - Coffee break (Whimsy Stamps)
     Background text 2nd card - Birds of a feather (Catherine Pooler, SOA Naturally inspired)
Colouring medium: Tombow dual brush markers
Ink: Versafine black
Cardstock: Neenah solar white 80 lb, black cardstock from my stash

Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Today, I have a card to share for the current Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

My inspiration came from the recent Stamp of Approval collection, which contained a border die that reminded me of the border die that I won a long time ago but had never used ... until now.

Materials used: 
Dies - Lace Edger 2, Joanna Sheen Signature Dies; SSS stitched rectangle die
Stamps - All you need is coffee, STAMPlorations/Shery Russ
Patterned paper for paper-pieced cup and background panel - DCWV
Ink - Versafine sepia; Antique linen distress ink
Colouring medium for the coffee in my cup - Prismacolors
