Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

 

Welcome to my little stop on the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. If you’re just starting out here, please hop on over to their site and get all the details –  including how to win some fun prizes…including a gift card to The Ribbon Resource!

Nothing says spring to me like stems popping out of the ground and growing nice and green! I really look forward to having my coffee on these spring weekend mornings, then puttering outside in my flower beds, weeding and being excited to see what has come back after the long winter.

 I stamped and fussy cut two coffee cups from the Lil' Inker Designs Coffee Talk Stamp Set (with various to-go toppers) on a nice mixture of ribbons and trims perfect for cardmakers: natural burlap string, olive green leaves and adhesive scallop borders.


The Ribbon Resource offers so many colors in each of these, but if you need "just the right color", utilize items you already have on hand to change any light colored trim: alcohol markers, sprays/mists and ink, etc. all work! My card design was geared by Scrapbook.com's March Cardmaps Challenge. After my coffee cups were finished (I colored them with Copics and patterned paper), I adhered patterned paper onto a card base and created a tag from Lil' Inkers Anytime Tags 2 Die Set. I stamped the sentiment and then started accessorizing with ribbon.


I hope you enjoyed my card, and thanks for stopping by! I'm on Instagram too-come follow me there and here on my blog!

Here's a list of all the supplies I've used on my card:
MISTI
Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock
Copic Landscape Sketch Marker Set
