Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi there friends, old and new! It's one of my favorite times of year... Coffee Lovers Blog Hop time! We're celebrating everything coffee (and tea and cocoa) 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 30 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.

We're sponsoring a SUPER fun prize for the hop, so you'll definitely want to play along! Especially if you love coffee (or tea) and new Verve!  We've got a fabulous new coffee themed release headed your way on July 10, but one of you could win the entire release before you can buy it, just by participating in the hop with a summer coffee themed card of your own! Want a sneaky peek?

Verve's July Release Collection... available July 10, 2017!
So now you'll just have to play along and link up to the hop, right?

Okay, on with my project. I just had to play with the tall kettle for my first card using the soon to be released Always Time set. I stamped the kettle in archival black, then colored with Copic markers and cut with the coordinating Kettle Time Die Set. I added some flowers behind, accenting with a few teeny rhinestones. The sentiment is stamped onto tiptop taupe, then I added a scalloped border up top to mimic the scallops on the kettle. I accented with a couple butterflies cut with the Graceful Butterflies Die Set, then finished off with a softy sky embossed polka dot background and a strip of black down the side.


Enabler's List
Stamps: Always Time (releasing 7/10/17 from Verve)
Paper: soft sky, tip top taupe, basic black (SU!), white (Neenah)
