Welcome to the Fall 2016 Coffee Lovers Bloghop! I'm jumpstarting my hop experience with a cup of pumpkin spice flavored coffee and a little Paper Sweeties! No lie! I'm drinking it right now!
If this is your first hop, be sure to check out all of the information on the Coffee Lovers Bloghop Blog... but the short of it is... create something with a Coffee, Tea, or Cocoa theme along with a Fall theme... use your blog or Instagram or Pinterest or another format to link up your wonderful creation! There are random draw prizes all throughout the Hop Week and you can link up multiple new creations for more chances to win... or just because it's fun! And it is fun! And you'll meet some really awesome people!
Paper Sweeties is a Super Sponsor and is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the shop AND there are so many more sponsors... and the hop goes from 6am Pacific Friday June 23rd through Friday June 30th! I hope to see you around the hop!
And here's my first card:
Paper Sweeties has quite a few hot beverage themed stamp sets and this month saw the release of some really great Fall themed images too! I used the Thankful Stamp Set and Sweet Cuts for the pumkins and sunflowers. Love the new Thankful set!
I used the Coffee, Yes Please Sweet Cuts to create this cute little takeout coffee cup and the steam in vellum. Well, of course I had to add a little gold! I used the set to cut out that cute little gold heart.
The sentiment is from the But First, Coffee set. I cut that brown banner using the Sweet Borders dies out of some packaging from my Tim Holtz stencil purchase... I'm upset that before I realized how awesome that was for die cuts I've recycled a few.. no more!!! And those coffee beans... love those from the Coffee, Yes Please set!
I can't believe I've gotten this far without mentioning that yummy plaid paper from Echo Park... Plaid, Yes Please! And I used some more packaging to cut a heart out using the With Love Sweet Cuts. And of course I scattered some gold sequins around and wrapped it up with some beautiful Creamsicle crinkled seam binding ribbon!
So... not a bad start to my hop I think. I'll be around all week and you'll be hearing from me for sure! It's slow creating in my house lately because we have a puppy that has multiple personalities...lol... but I still plan on visiting each and every one of you! I hope you stop by to visit here and there as well... see you tomorrow!
