Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


Coffee Blog Hop


Hello!  I had a little time to play around last evening so I thought I'd check out the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that wraps up later today.

Now, if you know me.......you'd know that I don't like coffee except in the form of an occasional Mocha Frappe from McDonald's.  That being said, I have LOTS of friends that are die hard coffee drinkers.  So why not make some cards for them?

I've used a set called Coffee Cozy and coordinating Coffee Cozy dies from Lil' Inker Designs.  This set was new a few months ago along with redesigned Coffee Cozy dies.  To a layer of green ombre chevron pattern paper, from the Ombre Chevrons paper collection,  stitching was added to the perimenter with Stitched Mats: Rectangles and added to a top folding notecard.  I die cut my coffee cozy, assembled, and added over a strip of black cardstock that was white heat embossed with a sentiment from Coffee Cozy.  (My cozy was diecut with the smallest stitched heart die from Stitched Hearts Die Set and layered onto my cup.)  Lots of Wink of Stella were added to all the hearts for shimmer!

I did use the current sketch from over at CAS(E) this Sketch! for my card except I brought the focal point to the bottom of my card instead of the top.



Thanks so much for sharing a part of your day with me!
