Happy Mother's Day with Simon Says Stamp card kit

Here my card for Mother's Day!
To be completely honest: this card is the card I wish I would
get from one of my daughters :-)

When I noticed the this wonderful card kit on Simon Says Stamp,
I ordered it for myself and planned to make cards for the
Coffee hop, but it turned out differently.
Have a look at the kit:
I could not pass on this and all the stamps are great for
many occasions. So I made a card for a special Lady: myself!
This is the challange on
The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog.

I used the stencil and the stamps to make this card
and made some pictures in the garden. With all the
bushes in bloom it was hard to choose which picture to use.

I started with stamping the coffee cup once on the card
and once on a post-it note. I cut out the one on the post-it
note and covered the image on the card, before using the stencil
and oxide distress inks candy apple and meowed lawn.
Next I added the sentiment.

On top of the heart and the roses I added some gold wink of stella.
This is very hard to catch on the picture, but shiny in real life.

Hope all you (creative) moms have a wonderful day!

Thanks for looking
and have a latte creative day!

2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop: day 4 - ctd541

Today for the 
I found a color challenge for my
Artist Trading Coins.

Aren't these colors on the 
perfect for coffee art work?!
So I took out walnut stain and worn lipstick oxide distress inks,
cut some white Artist Training Coins (2,5 inch)
and stamped with these cute
  Newton's Nook Love Coffee clear stamps.
These images are so cute and because they are small,
they are perfect for these artist trading coins.
Just stamp and color!

This one has some pale pink splatters in the background.
The coffee cups are behind onanother, so i had to mask the
first one before stamping the 2nd cup.

For the 3rd coin I used my favorite background technique:
direct to paper. Two colors on the craft sheet, some water and
lift the colors of the craft sheet onto the coin.
Next stamp and color some cups. Cut them out and
add to the Artis Traiding Coin.

Thank you very much for looking
and have a latte creative day!
