WWC94 - Heidi's Simply Stamping "All about tea or coffee" Challenge

Woo Hoo!  It's time for one of our special challenges, a "Simply Stamping" challenge hosted by Heidi Weaver.  This challenge is all about simplicity.  And what could be more simple than stamping with no more than two layers?  And this time the theme is close to most people's hearts (especially first thing in the morning).  Yes, that would be coffee  or tea.

Before we get to the terrific samples created by our Watercooler Artists, let's talk about what we're expecting if you decide to link your creation to this challenge.

"Simply Stamping" is a return to basics.  We expect either one single stamped layer or a base with one single layer on that.  We expect simple stamping.  You can use masking, heat embossing, stencilling, sponging.  You cannot use an embossing folder or embellishments or additional layers (not even a tag). 

Simple, right?  It's a fun type of challenge which more and more people are enjoying.  Penny Hanuszak is still travelling and so we turned to a frequent participant, Heather Hopson, who was able to jump in and fill the gap. 

This is what Heather has to say about herself:  "I am a happily married lady with a cat named Jellicoe. My husband is awesome.  We love to dance, camp, rock-hound, and to entertain.  We have a beautiful back yard and love to have our friends over for BBQ.  I have travelled to South America, Mexico, and several islands in the Caribbean.  I used to sail but my passion now is down-hill skiing.  I love it.  Soon as it starts to snow, that is all I can think of.  My second passion is making cards."

And now back to our team of Watercooler Artists.  We have some great samples to get your creative juices flowing and to show our take on Simply Stampin.  As usual, if you click on the name under each card, you can visit the blog post to see details on how the card was created.  We begin with Heidi's teacups and invitation to tea.

And now it's your turn.  You can join us by linking up your creation with the InLinkz at the bottom of this challenge.  

          1.  This must be a new project---no back-linking to a previous post.
          2.  You must link your project back to our challenge (details at top of page).
          3.  You must link directly to your post, not simply your general blog.
          4.  Please link to no more than 4 challenges, including ours.
          5.  Remember what we want to see in a clean and simple creation.
          6.  Have fun!

Please use the link-up below to share your project.  This Linky will close on Monday, November 21st at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time.
