Galentine’s Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Scrap N Stamp February Blog Hop!  Our theme for our hop & challenge this month is Galentine’s- celebrating friendships with cards you would make for your girlfriends!


Coffee and friends are the perfect blend for me so I knew I wanted to use my  MFT  Miss You a Latte  set.  I stamped, coloured and die cut her and her grande coffees for two.


Next I decided she needed a background and since I’ve been playing with the Ken Oliver Color Burst powders this week I thought it would be perfect.  Color Burst is a highly concentrated water colour pigment that let’s you achieve amazing watercolor backgrounds quickly and easily. No special tools or brushes needed.  It’s perfect if you want  the  watercolour look but don’t want the fuss.   I love the colorful spatters  you can get with a quick sprinkle of powder and a quick mist of water – the possibilities are endless.  You can check out Ken’s tutorial here

So after creating several amazing backgrounds I choose a panel and die cut it with  the new Tim Holtz Falling Hearts Die.  I mounted it askew and trimmed the card down to fit. I used one my trimmings to stamp my “let’s meet for coffee soon’ from the MFT Coffee Break sentiment set and mounted on my card. Assembled it all together with my coffee girl and a little foam tape to add depth.


I finished off the card with a little bling by filling a few of the hearts with Crystal  Stickles  because what is Galentines without sparkle?

    I love this card! I like that you put the coloured paper at an angle and were able to match the sentiment strip to the background. Thanks for including the video – a good reminder to take my colour bursts out of the cupboard and play with the again.
