Latte Love Hello

Around the World on Wednesday...March Blues


Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop!  We are a group of international Stampin' Up!® demonstrators who have gathered together for a monthly blog hop.  The blog hop goes live on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.   Join us and enjoy a hop around the world!


This month the theme is March Blues. Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Boho Blue, Misty Moonlight, and Night of Navy are the blues for the challenge.  I mis- interpreted the challenge and used a few extra neutral colors...OOOPSIE!  


I had no clue what I was going to make and just started to play around with strips of Boho Blue, Misty Moonlight, and Night of Navy CS.  I started to weave the strips and felt it needed some white so I added Basic White Strips.   The woven piece reminded me of placemats or a tablecloth which would be perfect for a little coffee scene. The cups and french press were made using  the Latte Love dies.    For the french press I also used the Holographic Trio Paper, Basic White, and Early Espresso CS.  The sentiment is in the Latte Love stamp set.  I carefully inked up the stamp to omit part of the sentiment.  The gorgeous ribbon is the Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon.   Love this kind of ribbon, soft and ties beautifully.


Inside I inked the other half of the sentiment along with more coffee cups.   The tiny flowers on the cups (on the front too) are from the Thoughtful Moments dies.  They were cut using the Holographic Trio Paper.  


Now it is time to see what the talented Chris Smith created.
