My Creative Time - March Stamp Release Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog!!  I am so excited to get to share with you this project that I made with the newest stamp sets from Miss Emma at My Creative Time.  Check them out!!

I used the awesome new Coffee Break with the fab die to create the coffee cups along with the stamped background on the tag.  The background stamp on the card (that matches the tag) is from the new Coffee Backgrounds stamp set.  The sentiment comes from the new You Are Perk-Fect stamp set.

I have found a fun new product to use, too.......Shrinky Dinks!!  I die cut them by running some though my Cuttlebug with the die in the Coffee Break stamp set and then stamped with the stamps from that same set.  Be sure to punch a big hole, because it will shrink, too.  I then baked them in my oven to make these fun little charms for a friend.  See how little they shrink to (it was the same size as the latte on the card)....they also thicken up to make a perfect little charm.  I colored them with my Prismacolor pencils before I baked them.  This tag is cut with my Cricut and the Wedding Shower cartridge.  I used one of the stamps for the coffee cup in the Coffee Break stamp set for the tag background.
Here is a peek at the awesome new Coffee Break stamp set with the die:


 Now, on with some fun stuff......
