STAMPlorations 4th Birthday Wishlist Linky Party!

Congratulations on your 4th Birthday and fun Birthday Wishlist Linky Party!


Here is my Wishlist!

I had fun making my card using a favorite CUTplorations Die, "Coffee Cup Silhouette".  I die cut my image from a Stenciled Alcohol Ink background from my stash.  Sentiment is from SU.


I hand drew flowers on my cup using my Staedler art pen to make the cup look summery along with summer time alcohol ink colors.  Enjoy your cup a tea this summer...hot or cold :-)

I am looking forward to many more years of inspiration and fabulous friendly customer service from Shery and her very talented DT members.  Congratulations again my friends.  Hugs..



Supplies: 
Stamps: SU Balloon Celebration
Paper: SU Thick Whisper White, Yupo Paper
Inks: Archival Black ink.  Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks: Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Watermelon, Wild Plum.
Accessories: CUTplorations ATC Tag Builder and Coffee Cup Silhouette Dies.  Prima Stencils Composition Book #584641.  Fun Foam.  Staedler art pen.



I am adding my card also to the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  STAMPlorations is one of their many sponsers of amazing prizes.

What a vibrant background you created with alcohol inks, Nancy! I'm loving the purples, yellows, and oranges I'm seeing in it.

Hugs!
