My Creative Time's March Stamp Release BLOG HOP!

Hello!!! You should have arrived from Kim's Blog, but if you didn't, head back to Emma's Blog to start at the beginning. :) For my card I used the argyle stamp from the new Coffee Backgrounds set. I stamped it twice and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut it into strips and inked it up to make a rainbow. {I need a rainbow intervention!} I used distress inks in barn door, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, shabby shutters, broken china, and seedless preserves. I used those same colors to get the effect on the cute coffee cup from the Coffee Break set. I cut it out {with the die that comes in that set}. Then I stamped the outline again so I could paper piece on my rainbow portion. 
The sentiment is from the Color Me Happy set also from MyCreativeTime
