CUTplorations march

Helau folks! It's the culmination of Fastnacht here in my 'hood. And it's time again for a new challenge over at STAMPlorations CUTplorations! Here's the inspiration for March. I chose the photo in a nod to the late Kate Spade, but love that it's also got some yummy cake and coffee in it too!

I hope there is something in this photo to inspire you to join us. I saw polka dots and coffee. Nuff said. Oh, and a chance to use up some of my newly organized PP from my stash! 

In my craft room organization I had a cover left over from a pad of cardstock that I tore apart for my new way of organizing colored cardstock. I knew I could use the little patches of CS from the cover. So I cut the coffee cups from four of the colors. And the rectangles from some PP. And the sentiment from some gold CS and voila!

TIP: To define the edges of die cuts a bit better, add some ink with a dauber.

I hope you'll join us for some die cutting fun over at the CUTplorations challenge.  Create a project based on the inspiration using at least one die cut and at least one STAMPlorations product. Your project might be chosen as the winner of a $15 GC to the shop. Check out how the CUTplorations DT was inspired by this month's photo here.

And don't forget about my STAMPlorations discount code STAMPGIRLMARIA for 20% off should you find yourself shopping;)  Thanks for coming by. See you in the gallery.
