Coffee Lovin' Hop!

Hello Everyone, and Welcome to the Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop! 



I must start with a HUGE THANK YOU to Amy Tsuruta for all of her hard work and dedication in planning and preparing for the coffee hops! 
  Have you seen all of the wonderful sponsors that Amy has lined up for us?


To be eligible for one of these sponsor prizes, link up your summer/coffee themed card HERE.  As you hop along, be sure to leave some love for everyone who has taken the time to share their coffee creations!
It is hard to believe that it is June and summer break is here for many of us.  I have already been on a vacation to the mountains.  It was not very summery, in the strictest sense, as there were many feet of snow still on the ground.  But, since this is a summer themed hop, I went with a beachy feel to my card.

I used the Monday Mood Board for inspiration~


as well as the Stamplorations June Sketch~


I stamped my Stamplorations coffee cup two times each on vanilla cs and on white cs.  All pieces where fussy cut out.  The coffee beans were stamped in Versamark on the coffee cups and then in Island Indigo on the cup sleeve.  The pieces were assembled and the lid of one cup was adhered with dimensionals.  
The card base was sponged with Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay ink.  I used a stencil to add embossing paste along the left side.  Next, I spritzed Mister Huey's Calico White spray ink to mimic the sea foam; then, I spritzed Heidi Swapp Teal Spray ink to add another shade of blue as well as some shimmer. To make the white embossing paste stand out more I inked it up with my white Signo pen.  Sequins from Simon Says Stamp finish off the card.  

This card fits in perfectly with Verve's Inspiration Challenge, Eat Me.  Drink Me. 
As I used two different ink sprays, I am linking up to Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge, Sprays/Mists.
That's it for me!  Be sure to head to the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop for ALL of the other inspiring coffee themed cards.  That is where you link up YOUR creation as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a little love!  
Happy Hopping!
