Summer 2016 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop


I must admit that I haven't tried iced coffee, but do still enjoy the nice cup(s) of hot coffee on summer mornings. I'm participating in the 2016 Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop. The Spring Hop was a ton of fun, so I knew I wanted to participate again. Looking forward to seeing all the amazing coffee creations linked up.



I started my Summer Coffee Card by die cutting from kraft and white cardstock a mug, sleeve and cover from Lil' Inker Designs Coffee Cozy Die Set. I inked up and did some simple coloring on the respective pieces, and affixed them to an inked gradient panel that had been die cut with LID's Stitched Mats: Long and Skinny Rectangles. I then die cut a sun and clouds from Lil' Inker Designs Large Sunshine Die and Rainbow and Clouds Die Set, and then stamped a birthday sentiment from the Coffee Cozy Stamp Set onto an inked banner. I affixed this over the coffee sleeve. I finished the card by stamping a sentiment from LID's Coffee Talk Stamp Set onto the white card base and added an orange decorative tab to the right of the sentiment.

I'm also posting this to my Instagram, I welcome new followers!
