Coffee Lovers Spring Hop

I am a coffee-loving-cardmaker!

I am so excited to participate in the Coffee Lovers Spring Hop! The theme is coffee and spring and so I just had to use my new Simple Stories 6x6 paper pad called "I Am". As soon as I saw that paper, I had to have it! I love the polka dots and the floral print! SO pretty!


I used the fun sketch over at Viva la Verve. It is from Week 1 and I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp-the Anything Goes Challenge! I have been waiting to use it and it seemed perfect for the coffee hop. I must admit that I gave up coffee for medical reasons. I stopped drinking it about 4 weeks ago. But I LOVE my tea! (And yes...I miss my coffee).

 

I used a Martha Stewart doily and the die cut banner is from my MFT dies. I stamped the coffee cup on the white paper, the pink paper and the blue paper and carefully cut them out to layer the cup.


I inked up a Stampin' Up set that is retired but one I have not used as much and I paired it with the Tea set called One Cup from Verve (for the sentiment). I love the fonts in this set!


I hope you are enjoying the hop and thank you to Amy Tsuruta for setting up such a fun event!
