summer coffee lover's blog hop...

Hey!!  Happy summer!!  Are you hopping along with the Summer Coffee Lover's blog hop???  I am even though I'm not a coffee drinker!!  Lately my drink of choice has been a London Fog tea latte... super yummy!!  Anyway... I do like joining in on the Coffee Lover's blog hop fun as it gives me an opportunity to get out the coffee/tea related stamps and dies that I own!  Today I combined stamps and dies from two of the sponsors for the hop:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps and A Jillian Vance Design.  I used the current Fusion challenge to create my card.  I put together the sketch with the inspiration photo and created a patriotic cup of coffee!!   And since I used patterned paper for my little coffee cup I will also be adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.   I stamped the cup with red ink and then die cut it with the matching die.  The top of the cup and the wrap were die cut from this fun patriotic patterned paper that I found in my stash.   Did some second generation stamping using the coffee ring image from the AJVD But First Coffee stamp set and then added the sentiment (from the same set) using red ink.   

Have a wonderful day... and happy hopping!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white and red; Patterned paper:  Bo Bunny??; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy, A Jillian Vance Design; Dies:  Clearly Whimsy and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Hero Arts and My Favorite Things
