Paper Sweeties + 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

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!

I am delighted to once again be a sponsor for this fun hop -- Paper Sweeties has donated a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner ...

... and additionally, we are offering a second FLASH prize of (1) stamp set and (1) die set of winner's choice to another lucky ducky ...

Hello Friend – Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop!

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog HopHello crafty friends!  I'm soooo excited to be popping in today to share a little something sweet and shabby I recently created for the Summer edition of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  You won't want to miss a single minute of the fun and inspiration ... there are so many 'super sponsors' participating this time around -- it's going to be an A-MAZING event, and I'm tickled to be a part of all the creativity!


CLICK on photos to view larger images close up!

I started with a base of Oatmeal Cookie cardstock and then layered on Sweet Berry and Bubble Gum cardstock finishing with a layer of Aqua Screen patterned paper.  I inked all the paper edges with cream paint to create a time-worn look, and then machine zig-zag stiched along the edges.  I die cut a tea pot shape from Floral Bunches patterned paper using the Tea For Two Sweet Cuts die.  I stamped a sweet heart tag on Buttercream cardstock using Cool Pool ink and then die cut the heart using the Beautiful Little Wishes Sweet Cuts die.  Next I stamped the 'Hello Friend' sentiment with Sweet Berry ink using the Little Wishes stamp set and attached the 'tea bag tag' to the tea pot with a snipett of aqua twine.


I added a rouched paper ruffle using text paper and then adhered a length of vintage crochet trim in a coordinating Oatmeal color.  I created a pretty nosegay of paper flowers, pearl trinket pins, pretty glitter leaves die cut using the Party Time Sweet Cuts die set and a beautiful tea-stained Frosting Seam Binding bow.


To finish my card, I added several lovely, flower-shaped, iridescent Sugar Sprinkles Sequins for a POP of bling!  (Cardstock and ink from Fun Stampers Journey, patterned papers from Recollections by Michael's).


Paper Sweeties is a 'Super Sponsor' for the hop and has offered a $50 gift certificate to one lucky hop participant!
