Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop

Though I openly admit I'm not a coffee lover (unless it comes in frozen form like a Starbucks Frappuccino or in ice cream), I am a big fan of coffee themed stamps.  With that in mind, I'm joining in on today's Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Rise and Brew card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Clear and Simple Stamps
For my summer themed design, I used the Morning Brew:  Coffee and A Little Java stamp sets from Clear and Simple Stamps.  I die cut a pair of clouds from CSS's pearly white cardstock using the Clouds Combo dies and arranged them on a blue card base. A cheery yellow plaid circle "sun" was tucked behind the clouds.  With the help of my MISTI (it's really coming in handy!) I stamped and colored the to-go coffee cup on the matching die cut, then used foam tape to adhere it to the cardfront.  I stamped the "rise and brew" sentiment on the card in blue ink, then added a few white sequins for a bit more sparkle.

For more coffee-inspired designs, be sure to check out the creations posted for the hop!

Materials Used:
Morning Brew:  Coffee and A Little Java stamp sets, Trendsetter Blue, A Blanc Check, and White Pearl cardstock, Clouds Combo and Coffee Cup dies (Clear and Simple Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, and Bahama Blue inks (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Yippee 6x6 paper pad (Chickaniddy Crafts); white sequins; foam tape
