Spring Summer Coffe Lovers Blog Hop

It's time for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I just love seeing all the caffeinated creations along this hop and can't wait to do a little hopping myself! Verve has been a sponsor since the very first hop, and we're continuing that tradition today, offering up our two new limited edition stamp sets for a participant along the hop. There are oh-so-many fabulous Super Sponsor prizes up for grabs for those who link up a newly created Spring/Summer themed coffee, tea or cocoa project over on the official Spring/Summer 2018 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post. The linkup is open through June 1, so I hope you have a fabulous week of getting inky!

Our Super Sponsor prize for the hop is the two brand new limited edition stamp sets that just released this morning! We have a limited amount of these sets available for purchase in the shop. They won't be re-ordered so now's the time to snatch them up if you see something you have to have!

Just Like You is a fun, masculine set, perfect for honoring the father figure in your life. A big, hearty coffee mug allows for customization with some of the other stamps in the set. Scroll down to see my first take with the set.

Living on Coffee is a lovely, floral coffee set that includes some beautiful blooms and a host of fun, all-occasion sentiments.

For today's coffee card, I am featuring the Just Like You set. I made this as a card for Mark from the boys. When they were babies, we dressed Kellan in blue and Trevor in green to tell them apart, so I thought Mark would get a kick out of the symbolism behind the two coffee mugs. Plus, with twins, 2 cups minimum are essential for a morning! Haha! I stamped the mugss on white, then stamped different sentiments on each cup and colored with Copics. A third circle for the sentiment finished off the stamping.

The background is designer paper, sponged with pumice stone ink. I wrapped a bit of linen thread around the panel, then layered my circles to complete the layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy hopping!
