Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello and welcome back!!

It's time again for another blog hop for us coffee, tea and cocoa lovers but this time with a summer theme! It's always time for coffee! 

There are a lot of crafty friends that are participating once again for the love of coffee, tea and cocoa. Some are old and some are new. It's so much fun to see all the creativity around these drinks. 

There are also a lot of amazing sponsors who are giving away tons of prizes. 


For my cards, I decided to do one with a summer theme which I'll have to say isn't easy. The other I decided to do in a traditional way of how I usually make coffee cards. 




I used 5 different kinds of distress inks to color different strips of paper and then heat embossed a fun coffee sentiment on each of them. Sprinkled on some sparkling clear sequins and called this one done. I love the simplicity of the card and the pops of color. 



This one was a little more involved with distress inks used as watercolor and then with embossing paste. I used 2 different stencils to grunge it up a bit. Die cuts, stamps and staples were also added to give it some fun dimension. 

You can join in on the fun as well. The hop will run through Friday, June 12th @ 11:59 p.m. PST. All the information will be here on the Coffee Lovers blog.

Have a great day!!

Angel
