Join me for Coffee

Hello there!
Today I am stopping by to share a card with you...
I'm playing along with the long anticipated 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop... I bet you are too!
I also used the sketch from The Paper Players...

I used a few stamp sets from Paper Sweeties, who is one of the Super Sponsors!!!! The sentiments are from Coffee, Yes Please. The coffee mug and sugar cubes are from Eat Cake and coordinating dies, Eat Cake Sweet Cuts.
The steam die is from the set Sweet Cuts Party Time ( not actually steam ;). 
I watercolored the cardstock with some distress inks in picked raspberry and mustard seed. I stamped the images with blackink from Memento and colored the mug and sugar with Copic Markers in shades BG000, BG01, W0 and W2. I added some wink of stellar to the sugar cubes.
I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto black cardstock. I scattered some clear sequins and used dies from My Favorite Things, Stitched Mini Scallop Circle dies and Mama Elephant's All Prettied Up die.

Also adding this to The Challenge... key words bright and watercolor

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!!!!

Hello there!
How are you all doing?
Hope you are enjoying some fine weather!

Just stopping by to share a card with you...
Yes, I have fallen in love with these florals from Jane's Doodles, Bloom!!! It's been fun to make up different bouquet arrangements! I added pattern papers from My Mind's Eye ( pink stripe) and Teresa Collins ( yellow numerical). 
 I hand drew a few stems for the bouquet. I stamped the flowers and leaves with black ink from Memento and a bit of masking. I drew the stems with pencil and than traced them with a fine tip sharpie marker.
 I used some Copic Markers to color... for the pink bloom I used W00, RV10, R81, R83 and R85. For the yellow blooms I used E0000, YR000, Y23. For the leaves I used YG61, YG63, YG 67 and T9. I added some white accents with a gel pen but now wish I did not add them. 
I used a word die, Amazing, from Verve Stamps, Amazing Adjectives Word Die Set. I used black cardstock than brushed some wink of stella over the word a few times. Love that shimmer! I added a twine bow and some clear sequins.

I am playing along with a few challenges...

I could not wait to ink up this stamp set from Jane's Doodles, Bloom!!!! I chose this set as my 'freebie' for being a spotted winner when you use #janesdoodles on instagram!!! Thank you Jane!!!

First I stamped a few blooms and leaves onto white cardstock and left them uncolored. I stamped a few blooms and leaves onto cardstock with black ink from Memento. I colored them with Copic Markers. For the peach bloom I used R20, R22, R24, R27 and YR24. For the yellow bloom I used Y11, Y13 and Y15. For the leaves I used BG99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG11. I added a light hue with BG000 and faded it with colorless blender. I added some whire accents with a gel pen.

I die cut a glittery frame using Avery Elle's postage stamp die and glitter cardstock from My Favorite Things. For a finishing touch I added a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
