Coffeeeeee! I'm Hoppin!

Hey there Coffee Loving friends!  Today is the first day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop and I'm excited to be back hopping and being a Super Sponsor again this season!  I've got several projects to share with you this hop, so please make sure to stop back again and again to see what I've created!

As a Super Sponsor, I'm donating a special prize to one lucky hopper!  I'll be awarding a $25.00 gift certificate to my online shop (Fun Stampers Journey is only available in the USA at this time). International friends, don't worry ! I won't forget about you!  I will also select an international friend to win a special prize from RG's retail line.  

So let's check out today's creation, shall we?!  
One of my most favorite coffee sets in the Fun Stampers Journey Inspiration Catalog has to be the Le Cafe' set.  I just love the artsy gorgeous images that make up this Ooh la la fabulous set.  From the fun bistro/cafe images to the gorgeous scripty font, this set is a HIT!  I hope it stays around a LONG TIME!  
To create the card,  I stamped the spoon image repeatedly onto Whip Cream cardstock using Huckleberry Fusion ink (and my stamp positioner tool).  After the spoons were stamped, I colored them with my FSJ Watercolor Color Splash Pencils (# 0028, 0031 and shadowing of 0023 and 0048). After they were colored, I splattered some Journey Silver Silk onto the panel then stamped my sentiment. I tied some Black Licorice Journey Twine around this panel and then added (a watercolored) Forever Heart Chip onto the ribbon with some Journey Glaze. I also added a layer of Journey Glaze and a sprinkling of Sparkle Dust to the heart chip.  
Before mounting this panel onto Huckleberry Fusion cardstock using Foam Squares, I applied a light rubbing of Journey Brush Silver and Huckleberry Fusion PanPastel (found in the Rich Sorbet collection) to the edges.  I then attached this panel to a Whip Cream card base (with a topfold).  Adding a trio of Pearls finished this card off.  
I love the simple elegance that blue and white provide and it was such a joy creating this card.  I hope you like it too!  :)
Please stop back for another YUMMY coffee/tea/cocoa loving creation!
