Joy Clair Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here bringing you todays installment of Joy Clair Stamps and the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. 
In an effort to keep myself straight this week, I decided to bring you a planner spread I worked on. Hope you enjoy. 
I used 3 Joy Clair sets for this project My Cup Runneth OverInk Splatters and Wonderland Letters

You can see off to the left I am not infallible. I originally stamped the sentiment from the My Cup Runneth over set, with an acrylic block, yes that did not work out so well and did not stamp all the way, since I did not take the page out of my planner first. When I went to restamp (not learning my lesson the first time) it was off, so I used a piece of white card stock, stamped my stampoholic and it was perfect.

I then decided to make a shaker card bookmark using the My Cup Runneth Over set. I stamped the image with Versafine Black, and once dry colored with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Added the Gold Rush sequin mix from my friend Kat's shop and used my Fuse Tool to seal it up. Added a ribbon and a planner add on and I was finished with that.

I then went to my stamp table and used the Wonderland Letter set and my Stampoholic to line up the letters and times for when my assignments are due this week. I used Brilliance coffee bean ink on this portion.

Finishing this off, I used the Ink Splatter set and "spilled" coffee on my planner. Let me say, this is something that will never happen as my cup and my stamp table do not know each other, they have not and will NEVER meet. Using Frayed Burlap distress ink I made the "coffee" splotches. I then remembered my coffee ring stencil by Tim Holtz, grabbed it, added that touch and I was finished.

Or so I thought. Taco Tuesday just really needed to be represented, I have a little place not far from the house that has $1 taco's on Tuesday and most weeks I do go have a couple. And this little guy wanted to be stamped, so why not.

Yes I typed a lot, hope you have stuck with me this far. If you have, do me a favor and leave a comment and let me know... beef or chicken, what is your favorite taco type?
