Spring/Summer 2021 Coffee Lovers Hop Day 1!


Well, a Woo!  And a Hoo!  It is time for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  We are celebrating with a week long hop full of inspiration with lots of sponsors and prizes!  You get chances to win some great stuff by linking up newly created coffee, tea or cocoa themed projects!  Check out the main hop post here for all of the details and to link up!

For my first card I've been doing some playing with my Gelli Printing Plate and some acrylics along with stencils and stamps.  Here's how I was inspired for this one:


I created the background including butterflies from the Gina K Love & Kindness stamp set on the Gelli Plate and then added a couple more butterflies by rolling a bit of paint onto the stamp.  After it was dry, I stamped the floral from the Friendship Blooms stamp set in Versamark and heat embossed with some Wow embossing powder.


I die cut the to go cup from Rubbernecker Stamps (one of my faves because of the size and that cool stir stick that comes with the set!).  I assembled it and stamped the sentiment from the Gina K Perfect Blend set.


I didn't want to cover up too much of that background so I cut the Heart Circle die from some vellum for a backdrop for the coffee cup.  Just a few sequins and done!

I had a LOT of fun playing with the Gelli Plate and I made a second background at the same time that I'll be using this week!  I'll be playing some more with the Gelli plate as well and if you really want some inspiration and ideas for using it, I've found a great account on IG for it and you can find it here!  Tania does some great quick videos with plenty of ideas of how to use your plate.

I have four cards for Day 1 so be sure to check those out too!

Now be sure to head on over to the CLC blog to check out how to play along!  I cannot wait to see what you create!
