2018 Spring/ Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happy Friday everyone. We're excited to be a Super Sponsor for the 2018 Spring and Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  If you'd like to participate, you'll find all the information to join the fun at Coffee Loving Card Makers blog.  Don't miss out on the fun!  There are lots of great prizes to win.

If you're new to, welcome.  We're so glad you stopped by!  We hope you enjoy our blog and online store.  If you've been here before, welcome back!  To thank you all for stopping by,  we're offering everyone a 20% discount on any purchase made during the hop.  Enter code COFFEE20 at checkout.  Remember, all orders over $20 receive FREE shipping!
Of  course, we can't pass up the fun.  So, we've created two coffee themed cards using some fun, summer colors.  We hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you to get creative today.

We used the new Retro Petals Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th to create this fun pattern in bright, summer colors.  We then used the Coffee Cup die from MFT Stamps to create the cup from the fun pattern we created.

For the second card we used another favorite from Concord & 9th, the Semicircle Turnabout Stamp.  (We love these stamps and their ability to create fun patterns in colors of our choice)  The coffee mug was stamped using the Coffee Date stamp set from MFT Stamps.

Links are listed below to supplies we used to create these cards:

Mega Sponsor Spring Blog Hop

Hello everyone!

If you're new to our blog, thanks for stopping by! If you're a regular follower, welcome back! We're so excited to be participating and sharing some fun projects with you! We have partnered with seventeen additional stamp and papercrafting companies for this Spring blog hop, giving away 18 prizes to 18 lucky winners! All the details for participating can be found at the end of this post. 

Spring has finally arrived here in the Pacific Northwest. As I'm writing this, the sun is shining and the grass and weeds are growing! It feels good to know summer is just around the corner.

We chose some products from Concord & 9th to create some wonderful cards for the Spring projects we'll be sharing today. We hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you to get creative.
The Posie Fill-in stamp set is perfect for creating backgrounds using multiple colors. I used the MISTI stamping tool, and created numerous backgrounds in multiple colors, quickly. The MISTI allowed me to switch colors easily without having to line up stamps each time.

I used the backgrounds to create several cards, and have a couple left for some future projects.
I trimmed the background for the card above using the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges from MFT Stamps and added "Thanks" from the Concord and 9th Fabulous Phrases die set.
I used the Wonky Stitches die from Avery Elle to trim this background. Added some ovals and another phrase from the Fabulous Phrases Die set from Concord and 9th.
One last card to share, and some backgrounds that I hope to make into cards soon.
