Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Friday, May 3, 2019

Morning, y'all!  I have a busy weekend scheduled; but before all the crazy begins, I wanted to pop in to share a little, coffee creation in participation, with the Paper Sweeties Design Team, in the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
I started this card by white-embossing a number of coffee-crazy sentiments onto a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Always Artichoke cardstock.  I'm not loving the coverage and/or stick-ability factor of this powder by Zing! and would LOVE to know which brands you all would recommend.  I hate throwing money down the drain.  Please share in the comments below.
I then smudged it with a little, white ink just for a little more of a realistic, chalkboard-like look; framed it with white cardstock and silver-threaded, straight, machine stitching...
and wrapped it with a length of Paper Sweeties' Tea seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and embellished with an ivory button, laced with Baker's Twine, tied in a bow.  Debbie has the best seam binding ribbon EVER, folks!  Be sure to check out her assortment in the shop.
The entire prepped piece and a glitter paper, Oval Scallop Sweet Cuts frame were then popped up, with foam tape, off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face and just below the embellished ribbon respectively.  I wish you all could see that glittery frame better here.  It is so striking in real life.  It was used to house a Coffee, Yes Please Sweet Cuts travel mug, die-cut from a pretty, floral print; white cardstock; and vellum.  The coffee beans and flower were stamped, in Jet Black ink, on their coordinating Sweet Cuts dies and watercolored.  All of the framed elements were popped up with foam tape; and the coffee beans were given a dose of shine, with Glossy Accents, to complete the look.
Link up your coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for your chance to win a heap of fabulous prizes.  Paper Sweeties is offering a stamp and die set of the flash prize winner's choice...
AND a super sponsor prize of $25 to spend in the Paper Sweeties shop.  Woohoo!
Debbie is also having a 25% off site-wide Event Sale with coupon code SPRINGCOFFEE, as well as hosting her own challenge, during the hop, worth a $50 shopping spree in the online shop.  Simply add your coffee-themed projects to our Facebook group and/or Instagram.  You do not have to use Paper Sweeties products on your projects but will earn bonus points for doing so.
You can't beat that, friends!  Cannot wait to see what you all cook up!  Good luck with all the fabulous prizes, and have a great weekend!
