Always Time for Coffee

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's 
March 1, 2015 Reveal.

This month SEVEN new rubber stamp sets are being introduced.   These sets are 20% off their regular price, until March 3rd.  All the new reveal sets are available on Cling Mounted Rubber and as a digital image.  Glasses #698 is the stamp set featured in  This Month's Technique Video.

The sets are:


Coffee Time #694   (digi version DIGI694)
Coffee Shoppe #695   (digi version DIGI695)

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog! I chose to use the Coffee Shoppe stamp set 695 for my reveal today. I am looking forward in being able to sit outside a coffee shop when the weather gets warm. I am looking forward to Spring! I had this awning die from Savvy Dies that went perfect with the cafe. I "glittered" the pink stripes on the awning and curtains by using my versamarker and adding Sparkle embossing powder EP107. I also used Sparkle embossing powder on the banner.


On the flower boxes I used Copper Flame embossing powder EP453 to make them look like metal flower boxes. Flower soft was used for the flowers. On the windows I used Clear Detail embossing powder EP280.



On March 3rd,  one Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the comments left on the designers' blogs listed below.  The Grand Prize Winner will receive
all SEVEN of the new rubber stamp sets (or digi sets, if you prefer)

Love the way you added shine and texture with the EPs and Flower Soft. The card just invites you to get a cup and pull up a chair.

I love your sweet, sweet card with the coffee bistro scene! It is just stunning!

BarbaraR said...

This is a really pretty stamp. The pink stripes on the awning and curtains are striking. I like the idea of using clear embossing powder for glass surfaces because it dries so much faster than other glass products.

Shona Erlenborn said...
