It's A Good Day...for Coffee!

 The title of this post is a little deceiving because EVERY day is a good day for coffee!  Actually,  for me, coffee it makes it a brew-tiful day and the fact that it's Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop time makes it a perfect day!
 

 

For my card, I started with this new background die cut from Reverse Confetti: Striped Frame Cover Panel Confetti Cuts.  Then I paper pieced this sweet coffee cup from Uniko: I Love Coffee set (which I'd won in one of the Coffee Bloghops!).  This delightful word die is new from STAMPlorations: It's a Brew-tiful Day Phrase die.

Java Great Day



Day 2 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop has been amazing!  I've been really inspired by so many wonderful Spring coffee/tea creations -- and we've only just begun!
 
 For my card, I began by creating a watercolor background using Distress Oxide Ink Pads (reeeeeally lovin' this product!)  These absolutely ADORABLE coffee-themed images are new from STAMPlorations: Coffee Petites and the set includes the stitched circle CUTplorations, too!  To finish, I used another new STAMPlorations goodie:  Java Great Day Phrase Die.  This die can be purchased by itself or in a set of 5 Coffee Phrases (and, yes, it's ok, you do "need" them!)

Coffee, YES Please!

 One can never have too many coffee/tea stamps, in my opinion, and this new stamp set from Paper Sweeties: Keep Calm and Drink Coffee is a "gotta have it" and perfect for creating a card to enter in the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!!
 

I really love this coffee cup image from Paper Sweeties: Keep Calm and Drink Coffee and the sentiment from the Coffee, Yes Please set is one of my favs!

The Perfect Blend


 It's Day 2 of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  Have you joined the fun yet?  Bet you've seen some amazing coffee/tea projects (who knew such a delish brew could cause such a stir, huh?!)
 

For my card, I used the brand new stamp set and dies from Dare 2B Artzy:  Perfect Blend and the pretty die cut behind the cup is from Reverse Confetti's Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cut set.   


 Dare 2B Artzy is one of the incredible Super Sponsors of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  In addition to providing a wonderful prize for the hop....


 I've had the privilege to meet owner/designer Cindy Sartain at our (only) local scrapbook store, Legacy Paper Arts.  The shop owner, Joyce, and Cindy have been friends for many years and this shop was one of the first (if not the first) to carry the Dare 2B Artzy line...everything in the line!   I've been such a fan of Cindy's unique designs and my wish list continues to grow!  She is truly an amazing artist and one of the nicest ladies ever!

My Hero!


The fun continues as TODAY starts the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop
My card features Reverse Confetti's Just Brew It stamp set and the new Drop Cover Panel Confetti Cut.  A simple card, but then I'm a simple coffee drinker, too - no cream and sugar in my cup - but I do love to drink out of a pretty cup just like this one!

 

 Hope to see you on the hop!  Make new friends, gain tons of inspiration and maybe win a prize from one of our fabulous Super Sponsors!


Thanks a Latte


 If you're wondering why you're starting to see a lot of coffee/tea projects in blogland it's because TODAY starts none other than the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!!
 

My card is featuring some FABULOUS new products from STAMPlorationsThanks a Latte Phrase Die CUTplorations and Coffee Donut Row border stamp!  I used Vintage Walnut Distress Oxide Ink Pad to sponge the backdrop then colored in the images and fussy cut before adding the die cut words.
