So how's about we get STARTED!
 You should be starting at the Totally Stampalicious blog which is linked just below. My blog is actually the fifth stop on the hop, so if you found your way to my blog first, head over to the TS blog to make sure you hit all the stops along the way and get in on all the fabulous prizes that are being offered with the new release. If you started at the TS blog, you should have arrived here from Monique's blog. Laurie's blog is the next stop for you after mine. The list of the hop order is below in case you get lost along the way. Don't forget, if you purchase the acrylic stamps, you get the digi version for free!! How's that for instant gratification?

The last stop, Sue's, is a gallery at Splitcoaststampers.com, so don't be surprised when an online gallery shows up instead of a blog. Be sure to leave her a comment on her Coffee Brawd project to qualify for a prize from Sue's stop on the blog hop.
 
My first project using the new set is a coffee caddy I will use at work. I used a bare wooden caddy on a turntable that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I stained the wood with Brushed Cordouroy distress ink by Tim Holtz. The Close to Cocoa dsp by SU! were attached using Tombow liquid mono adhesive. It sticks quickly and stays stuck with this stuff! The little coffee princess was colored with Copic markers and popped up over the Java Junkie sentiment. The sentiment uses the digital version of this image so I could make it much larger than it's actual size.



One of the cool new additions to the options at
Totally Stampalicious is that you can now get the images in a digital version as well as the traditional acrylic stamp. This project was made using digital images which allowed me to make the coffee cup much larger than it's actual size and place Coffee Brawd in the cup! Trust me...there are days when I would love to go for a swim in a cup that size!! The "brawd" image is true to its actual size in the stamp set at about three inches.

These letters on the end were added using chipboard letters which were colored with pink pigment ink and then glittered. The scrolls were also glittered and then added to the caddy.
