Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi friends!  It's time again for another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  This time we're celebrating all things coffee, tea and cocoa with a spring theme.  It's no secret that I am a serious coffee (and tea and cocoa) lover and that I love these blog hops!  There's nothing better than spreading a little crafty coffee cheer throughout the year! I hope you'll play along and link up your own coffee creations for a chance to win some fabulous prizes from the Super Sponsors!
The hop starts today and runs through Friday, March 25 at 11:55 pm pacific. To be eligible for any of the sponsored prizes, you must link up a newly created spring themed coffee, tea &/or cocoa project over on the Spring Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog post. Easy peasy! 

I truly LOVE to design coffee, tea, and cocoa sets.  I could probably illustrate coffee stamps all day every day and be happy{wink}! If you've hopped along with our coffee lovers hops before, you might recognize a few of the images and sentiments in our newest Coffee Helps set.  It includes designs from a couple of the limited edition digi sets we offered in the last two hops.  I felt they needed to come to life in stamp form, so here they are, along with a coordinating die set.  

And we're giving them a way to one lucky commenter on this blog post!  
Coffee HelpsCup for All Seasons Die Set

Just leave a comment here before 11:55 pm on Friday, March 25 to be entered to win
the Coffee Helps set and Cup for All Seasons Die Set.

For today's project, I made some easy peasy little k-cup holders with stamps and dies from our new release.  Don't you think these would make the perfect little thank you or party favor gifts?  To make them I started with a 8" x 1" strip of cardstock and scored at 1", 3", 5" and 7".  I cut two strips of 7/8" x 1-7/8" Perfectly Plaid designer paper to decorate either side.

My sentiment panel is cut with the stitched circle from Springtime Stitches Die Set, then matted on a sun die cut from the Partly Cloudy Die Set. I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Helps on the stitched circle and then layered with dimensionals. Next I stamped the flower to-go cup on white, colored with Copics in coordinating colors and then cut with the Cup for All Seasons Die Set.  So fun and easy I had to make 3 of them! {grin}

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful coffee (and tea and cocoa) lovin' kind of day!
