Notorious RBG Birthday Blog Hop

A few folks are getting together to celebrate the Ruth Bader Ginsburg's 86th Birthday!  We have some fun in store for you complete with prizes.  Read through for more information and inspiration. 

She has done so many incredible things.  Among them being the 2nd female nominated to the Supreme Court Justice where, among other things, she fought for gender equality and women's rights. She was and is a force to be reckoned with and so many of the rights women have today can be attributed to her.  For all those amazing acts, I say thank you and hope that she has the most wonderful birthday with many more to come. 

To honor her, I have created this card. 

This card features stamps by Heffy Doodle.  Colored with Copics in colors you often see RBG wearing.  The backdrop is a piece of DP from PTI die cut using Avery Elle Wonky Stitches.  I die cut the skyline using an Seattle Skyline form impress crafts.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment with Hero Arts Embossing Powder (was a little heavy handed when I stamped it).  Here is another view:

Here is today's complete hop listing:

We are lucky to be able to offer 4 prizes -- 2 Wonderful Women sets by Kelly Purkey and 2 Dare to Dream sets from Hero Arts. Thanks to these wonderful sponsors!

We will pick the winners of the sets from comments placed on all the blogs through March 19th 11:59pm ET and announce the winners on Joan Bardee's blog on March 21st.

I hope you enjoyed this post and this hop!  Thank you for your visit! 

Introducing Miss Ink Stamps

Happy Friday!  Some exciting news about a new stamp company- Miss Ink Stamps!!!
Luckily, the Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s team is happy to be part of the Miss Ink Stamps Grand Opening.  I have two cards today to sneak peek two of their new sets called Brewtiful and Java Joes.   

Both cards are creating by stamping and coloring their images.  There are some die cuts for the backgrounds (Hero Arts on the first and Avery Elle Wonky Stitches on the second)  The first card has a sentiment that is distressed with Fired Brick ink to match the berries and has some pearls as accents.  

These were super fun images to work with!  Enjoy be part of this party!
