Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


The whole crafting blogosphere is alight with coffee this week - yes, it's another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I was inspired to create something to celebrate the elixir of life. I managed to quickly create this card in the morning before we headed off to for Father's Day Lunch with the Culinary Consultant's family. Actually I had to re-make the card as the first time I smudged the ink really badly on the sentiment - I need to find better cardstock for stamping. Happy to hear about your favourites!


I was also inspired by the colour challenge over at Color Throwdown and the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm also linking up with the CAS Mixup where the theme is Stamping + die cutting + your choice (paper piecing)


Card: white 300 gsm super smooth card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Coffee Happy 
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Stampin' Up Soft Suede
Other: Lawn Fawn Let's Polka in the Meadow patterned paper and Spring Showers die
