Hello crafty friends – thanks for stopping by my blog today! I’m excited to share a little something I recently created for the Summer 2017 Edition of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I took inspiration from not only the coffee theme, but from the colors in the graphic too!!
I really enjoyed sitting down at my desk to create this ‘just because’ card with a fun coffee theme! Madison is the newest Sweetie to join our little stamp family and I had fun dressing her in this cute outfit from the Live Love Grow stamp set – I imagined her working at this oh-so-sweet coffee shop, so she had to sport an apron, a coffee shop logo T and … of course … a cup of ICED COFFEE! I stamped Maddy onto vanilla cardstock and then die cut her using the Madison Sweet Cuts die. The outfit was stamped on white cardstock and several scrap pieces of patterned paper and then paper pieced together!
I adore the sentiment from the Tackle life one cup at a time stamp set … ‘coffee and friends’ … and Maddy’s friend, as you can see, is this sweet little pup from the Sweeties Pets stamp set! The coffee stand was created by stamping the Sweeties Stand onto white cardstock, coloring in the background and then stamping the awning portion again onto patterned paper and paper piecing it onto the stand base. (Click on photo for larger view).
I added some fun coffee images and a sentiment for inside the hanging sign using the Planner Series: Coffee stamp set and finished this little cutie pie off by adding some die cut clouds created using the Let’s go to the beach Sweet Cuts set! I created this scene on a card base, but when I was finished, I thought to myself that this would be really cute on a scrapbook page with a pic of me and my bestie – *note to self!
