Imagine and Flourishes Blog Hop

Hello! Today is an exciting day, because the Imagine team is hopping along with Flourishes. I decided to use the My Cup Overflows clear stamp set, because coffee has been a bit of a requirement in my life lately.


I started off by stamping the images with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and then I colored the mages with a few Memento markers. I die cut the colored images with a Fitted Frame from Stampendous.

I found some deep teal cardstock that I used for a nice layer. I stamped it with the fun coffee beans that come in the stamp set, and i used the Rich Cocoa Memento ink again. Another mat was made from a rich elderberry cardstock to pull out the purple in the coffee cup. I layered everything on a white card base.

A huge thank you to Flourishes for this wonderful blog hop! If you'd like to see more, please visit all of the hoppers by using the links below. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
