Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval Box

Team coffee or team tea?
Which one are you?

We're celebrating the release of Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval box with a 3 day blog hop and the theme this time around is Celebrate Friends. For those of you that haven't heard of SOA before it's a hand-picked collection of exclusive products that are created to work together and it's delivered right to your door!

I'm part of tomorrow's hop but I have some cards to share with you today.
My first card features the Perfect Blend stamp set and the Scattered Circles stencil

I began by sponging the two ink colors over the stencil onto some white cardstock not cleaning the stencil when I changed the colors. After I sponged the two colors I flipped it over and rubbed all the ink from the stencil onto the card panel. I love how it turned out. I finished the panel by sponging some of the same colors around the edges.
The coffee pot is second generation stamping with Black Jack ink. The edges are sponged a bit to match the dotted panel. It's all layered onto a Smoke card base. 

My next card features the I Eat Cake stamp set, the WooHoo stamp set along with the Sweet die

I die cut the word Sweet out of craft foam and white card stock that I had blended Sauna, Seafoam and Rose Petal inks onto. I adhered them together with some liquid glue and set them aside to dry.
The rest of the sentiment is from the WooHoo stamp set and the cupcake is from the I Eat Cake stamp set. Catherine has a great video showing how all the pieces on this set work together. Check it out HERE

I asked at the beginning of this post if you were team coffee or team tea.
Me? I'm a tea drinker (chai, london fog or herbal - I'm picky) but I love to make coffee cards so I'm going to say I'm both.

This SOA box you get a choice.
You can be team coffee and get the coffee themed stamps.
You can be team tea and get the tea themed stamps.
You can be like me and be on both teams and order it all!
But to order any of them you have to be on the wait list and you can do that HERE.
