Freshly Brewed Designs Birthday Hop!

Welcome to Fresh Brewed Designs April Rubber Stamp Release and Blog Hop! 
We are so happy to have you hopping along with us this weekend!
If you are just arriving to the hop, you will want to go back to the start 

If you are getting here from Linda's blog then you are good to go! 

This hop is going to be a BLAST!!!
 It's Heather's birthday weekend, so she decided to throw in some EXTRA FUN just for you!
Not only do we have some SUPER CUTE New Rubber Stamps to release, we also have BLOG CANDY to give away!

I will tell you more about the candy, but first, let me share the cards I created for you today! 

I was so honored when Heather sent me a note a couple months ago asking me to join in this hop! She and I have known each other for several years--from back when I first got started into the world of paper crafting! I have supported her 100% as she journeyed into the realm of becoming a stamp company! I am so proud of her work!

I created my first card using the new stamp

(ahem. Did you know I got to name this little gal? Yep, Heather needed names and this was one of the ones I threw out there!)

This first card is super simple as I just wanted to show off how cute Chloe is! I chose a paper that I'd been hoarding, but I felt was ideal for this image!
And of COURSE she has sparkly shoes and a glitter cupcake! And did you know that I cut her hand off?? LOL! Yep. I had to do surgery as I put her on the card. Bet you never would have known if I hadn't of told you! LOL!

 The next card features the new stamp set
I adore this little set!!! I have so many coffee obsessed friends it is a must-have!

Here is a little 3" card I made for a dear friend of mine...she loved it! LOL!

I added Glossy Accents to the coffee lid to give it that plastic look and Liquid Pearls (ruby red) for my red "gems". I loved the idea of using a striped embossing folder to mimic the look of those cardboard sleeves they always put these cups in! This little card really was so much fun to make!
I added the second sentiment with a simple tab on the inside of the card. My friend told me it made her laugh...thus my intent was fulfilled!
