Coffee Lovers BLOG HOP!!!


I am so so so very excited to be a part of my FIRST EVER blog hop, The Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! It is a huge, huge, did I say HUGE blog hop with tons of amazing sponsors and creative people!



I made a summer coffee themed card that challenged me like I have never been challenged creatively before. When I think of making a coffee themed card I would never picture putting summer colors and designs in it. I think dark reds, greens, blues, browns and antique looking designs so I had to reach deep deep down in my creative brain and put ink and glue to paper.

Once I got my little hands on a coffee themed stamp set that I liked the game was on! I pulled out some paper I was saving and began to create and got a bit off track :). I ended up with two very cute non-coffee related cards that I absolutely love but frustrated me because they were not even in the ballpark of  the challenge I had to complete.






FINALLY....I found some inspiration from looking at all the fun cards and crafts others were doing in the blog hop and was able to create this beaut of a card. I used a paper pack I won from the Crafts Direct craft fair I went to a few months ago, my new coffee themed stamp set my husband found me, my favorite tool in my craft room (my heat gun), embossing powder, and bakers twine,


I hope you all enjoy this card because I had a really fun time making it! Be sure to check out all the other AMAZING blogs in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop here!

  15. Yay! I finally made it to your number 212!! And I have typer's cramp. Sometimes paper just starts speaking and you want to make one thing, but wind up with another. Luckily, your first two cards are bright and summery. I love what you've done with your coffee themed card, too - especially the way you've done the sleeve with that texture!
