Michael Strong Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Michael Strong SPRING Blog Hop

Hope you came here from
and saw his wonderful card.

My card for you is a coffee cup filled with 
the mini-tulips.
You can find all Michael's wonderful stamps HERE.

For this card I used a real coffee filter
and sprays it some light Spring colors.

Then I stamped the Club Scrap's coffee ring stamp in 
green as well as some coffee beans.
Then I cut it to size for the card. What is left
is going to be used for the inside.

The sentiment on the card is by Create with TLC
and printed with the computer.

The Tulips are all stamped on green paper and
embossed in dark green, then cut out. I used the smaller size
of the twotulip stamps. Then I stamped the flower again on 
paper that I sprayed orange and gold glimmermissed.
The flowers are embossed in red for contrast en cut out.
The are mounted with foam tape on top of the green flower.
After stamping the cup,Imade a slit in the top
to arrange the flowers.
Wouldn'tit be nice to setsoon in the garden and 
have my cup of coffee outside!

Here you see the inside of the card, with
the coffee filter background and a subway art
print by Create with TLC,that you can find for free
on my blog HERE

Such a bright happy card. I love both the idea of the slit in the teacup for the flowers & the use of coffee filters for background & insert. Hubby better lock his filters away. x
