Hello Everyone! I am excited to be participating in the 2016 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This is an extra fun hop because everyone is welcome to participate. The only requirement is your project has to be Spring themed and use coffee, tea and/or cocoa images/elements. The link-up and more details can be found at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.
First, let me share my card for day one, then I will tell you about a giveaway I am doing for the hop.
This card was quite fun to create. I really like the mug, saucer and heart. All of the detail and busyness of the card makes me a little uncomfortable. I decided to just go with it and allow myself to step out of my comfort zone a little bit. What can it hurt, right?
The coffee stamp set I used is Let’s Chat by Concord and 9th. It has so many fun little elements and I most likely will be using it again during this hop. I brought Spring into this card by decorating the saucer using the Floral Bold Prints by Lia background stamp by Hero Arts.
OTHER SUPPLIES USED:
(Sorry, I am not signed up for inlinkz right now. I hope this method of listing product will be okay with you for awhile. Thank you.)
Stamps: My Favorite Things Striped Background (This may be discontinued, I could not find on their site. They have other striped backgrounds though that will work great.)
Dies: My Favorite Things Die-namics – Stitched Circles STAX and Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames.
Ink: WPlus9 Coconut Husk, Mama Elephant – Tutti Frutti and Ocean, Tim Holtz Distress – Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass.
The giveaway will run for the duration of the blog hop, which is March 18 – March 25, 2016. For your chance to win my giveaway you must leave a blog comment. I will do my best at posting each day during the hop, but for sure a couple of the days. You will receive one entry per blog post comment. Please only one comment per blog post.
What are you entering to win? One lucky winner will win a $25 Gift Certificate to Butterfly Reflections Ink. This giveaway is not sponsored by Butterfly Reflections Ink. I selected a gift certificate from here, because Vanessa (store owner) has fabulous customer service, a good selection of product and super fast shipping.
Hint, hint…. Not required for this giveaway, but I encourage you to follow/subscribe to my blog (see sidebar), Instagram and Facebook page. I will have another giveaway coming up the beginning of April.
Happy hopping! There is so much inspiration and giveaways too!! The details can be found here: 2016 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
