Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop

Hello!!

I'm sharing a card I made for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today! I don't have a whole lot of coffee/tea stamps but I was at a stamping show a few months ago and I picked up this super cut set from Darcie's Heart and Home called Milk & Cookies. It's super cute set with a coffee cup and dount in the set.

To help with the summer theme I pulled out a collection pack from Carta Bella, Soak Up the Sun. I trimmed a stripe pattern paper to fit my card base and then used Distress Ink Antique Linen to ink around the edges. I did the same think with a Journal card from the pack.

On the journal card I stamped the sentiment Any Friend of Coffee is a Friend of Me with brown ink. Then I stamped the dount and coffee cup on some watercolor. To color them I used my Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Colored Pencils, I used: Petunia, Watermelon, Fossil Grey, Gravel, Sorel, Bright Green, Parakeet, Carrot, Persimmon, Mango, Citrus Yellow.

When the watercoloring was dry I fussy cut them out, then added them to the journal card with foam tape. Then I added the journal card to my card base. I thought it need a little something more, so I added a sun sticker at the top right, behind the journal card.
