Winter 2016 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello coffee, tea and cocoa lovers! It's time for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop again! I always love seeing the blog light up with coffee, tea and cocoa cards and can't wait to hop along. Once again Verve is proud to be a Super Sponsor of this fun event.
The hop kicks off today and runs until Friday, December 16.  To be eligible for any of the Super Sponsor prizes, just link up a newly created winter themed coffee, tea or cocoa project over on the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post.

To spread a little holiday cheer, I had a little fun designing some new coffee themed goodies.  I'm offering this sweet little printable as a free download through December 30, 2016. The My Cup To Yours Digital Set is whimsical, elegant and filled with some of the best stuff on earth... coffee goodness!  Feel free to download and spread a little handmade holiday cheer.  If you share your creations online please credit Verve Stamps and use @vervestamps on Instagram and Facebook so I can come take a look-see.  Can't wait to see your lovely creations!

For my project today, I paired the "holiday cheer to you and yours" digital sentiment with a stamped cup from Get Together and a snowflake from our Jolly Jingles set. The cup is cut with the coordinating Cup for All Seasons Die Set and I sponged everything with antique linen and early espresso inks. A Few early espresso mats and a big wide striped bow finish things off.

The layout is a slight variation on this week's Mojo Monday sketch!  It's contest week, so there are Verve prizes up for grabs.  Contest deadline is Sunday, December 11, so there's still plenty of time to get your entries in!

In other news, I found a box of early prototype stamps of our Coffee set that I've added to the website for just $5, while supplies last. It's the Limited Edition Typewriter Coffee set and some of the stamps are the same, but many of the sizes and fonts are different from the final version of Coffee. I've listed the differences on the website, but if you're up for a deal or want an inexpensive gift for a coffee loving friend, this set is a winner!

And last, but not least, all of our coffee, tea and treats stamps and dies are on sale!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful time along the hop.
