National Coffee Day Blog Hop!


Hey everyone!!  As many of you know today is National Coffee Day and the gals over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog are having another big blog hop to celebrate.  Precious Remembrance Shop is a super sponsor and so is A Jillian Vance design.  There are great prizes from both companies!   Please head over to the PRS blog and the AJVD blog for all the details on how to win each prize.  I made two cards to share.  First up is a PRS card I made using the super fun Coffee Love stamp set from Precious Remembrance Shop along with an image from another fabulous PRS set called New Day.  I stamped the coffee cup from Coffee Love on two coordinating papers from a My Mind's Eye paper pad.   The full cup was trimmed out from one and then pieces of the other were trimmed out and adhered to the cup as you see.  I then stamped the sentiment in the center of the cup.  I trimmed down another coordinating piece of paper and cut it on the diagonal.  The pieces were adhered to a light green cardstock base.  I stamped the image from the New Day that looks like a coffee stain in pink ink and then adhered the coffee cup.   Precious Remembrance Shop has a discount offer going on right now so I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to save on some fantastic PRS sets through October 8th.  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.


As I indicated above A Jillian Vance Design is also a part of this hop.  I created a clean and simple design using thee AJVD sets Brew-tiful and But First Coffee.  I stamped the coffee cup ring image from But First Coffee in two different inks (kraft and taupe) on off white cardstock.  The coffee bean image was stamped in a really dark brown.  I stamped the sentiment (from Brew-tiful) using a light brown ink and then die cut the word coffee (from the Coffee, Tea & Me die set) from brown glitter cardstock and some scrap cardstock.  All the die cuts were adhered together and then adhered to the card to complete the sentiment.  I'm adding this to the CAS(E) this Sketch link up as I used their sketch for the layout.  Make sure that you head over to the AJVD blog to see my card along with projects from other AJVD design team members and to leave a comment for a chance to win a $100 prize pack!



Have a wonderful day and enjoy the hop!
