2016 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi friends!  It's time again for another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  This time we're celebrating coffee (and tea and cocoa) loving crafting with a fun, summer vibe. Verve is proud to be a Super Sponsor once again, and I hope you'll play along and link up your own summer themed coffee creations for a chance to win some fabulous prizes!



The hop starts today and runs through Friday, June 24 at 11:55 pm pacific. To be eligible for any of the sponsored prizes, you must link up a newly created summer themed coffee, tea &/or cocoa project over on the Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog post.

I always love a giveaway and so I've designed this fun little digi set as a limited time free download from Verve through June 30, 2016.  It's sure to put stars (and stripes) in your eyes and coffee on your mind. I take so much joy in seeing what you create, so if you download, please come back to the site and link up your creations! 


Special Bloghop Savings! For those of you who aren't into digi or don't have access to a printer, Verve has a nice assortment of coffee, tea and cocoa stamps and dies in stock.  And you can create your own sale with this special limited time gift code...  



Use offer code SCL2016 in the gift code box at checkout to receive 20% off your entire order!  


Okay, now on with my card for the hop! I couldn't wait to take the new digi for a spin. And since I've spent the whole week caring for sick kiddos, I've had a little time to watch crafty tutorials on my phone and think about what I wanted to make! As soon as I saw the starburst tutorial on Splitcoaststampers this week, I KNEW I had to make a card using some Americana papers.

So I started things off with a starburst created from scraps of paper from a BoBunny collection. I then cut the three cheers sentiment from the digi set in a square shape and distressed the edges with antique linen and vintage photo distress ink.  I cut three of the frappe cups and colored with copic markers, accenting with glossy accents and glitter.  A strip of blue behind gives the trio of cups a little landing strip, and I finished off with a portion of a Stitched Pennant die cut up above, accented with star embellishments.
