Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Hello Friends!  Are we all ready for the SPRING Coffee Lovers Blog Hop?  It is always such a wonderfully inspiring event!!!!!  A big thank you to Amy Tsurata and her entire team for inspiring all of us throughout the year!  I love all of the wonderful projects they share!

Paper Sweeties is once again one of the many wonderful sponsors for this fantastic event:




I hope you will join in the fun by linking up a SPRING THEMED card or project!  There are so many wonderful prizes up for grabs and lots of free digi's too!  Be sure to check out all of the sponsors links at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers website!

And in case you missed it....Paper Sweeties March Release was also dedicated to Coffee and Tea with some lovely new stamps and sweet cuts:







Onto my card....I wanted to make a coffee mug with a spring feeling to it.  So I started by creating a vellum coffee mug embossed with flowers and colored with copics:

I used Paper Sweeties NEW "Keep Calm and Drink Coffee" sweet cuts die to die cut the coffee mug from vellum 4 times.  I embossed one of the vellum mugs with the flowers from the cake slice in the "Party Time" stamp set.  I then colored the backside of the vellum die cut with my Copics to add color to the flowers and leaves then I glued 3 layers of vellum mugs behind the first layer to give the finished mug some depth. Next I added a vellum steam die cut to the mug when I placed it on my white linen card base.  A partial circle window and some polka dot embossing of my turquoise cardstock creates a nice focal point.  And the lovely pink stitched ric rac border is from a Pretty Pink Posh diecut. The sentiment was cobbled together by selectively inking some sentiments from both the "Sending Sweet Thoughts" and "Tackle Life One Cup at a Time" stamp sets from Paper Sweeties.  And the finishing touch is some Licorice Twine.

Thanks for taking a look at my card! Enjoy the Hop!
:) Jill
