Today, I (Samantha) am sharing a summer-y and warm coffee card for this special occasion!




I kept thinking...coffee...summer...warmth...all of those words were spinning in my head, so I decided to put them on paper and see what happened!




This card came together quickly! And it was SO much fun!




- mist the card base with gold spray
- when dry, create the 'steam' with the stencil and some embossing paste
- watercolor the cute coffee cup image with Distress Markers in a rainbow pattern!
- fussy cut and pop  up on the card base
- stamp the greeting and pop the entire panel up over some high contrasting washi tape!

That cute coffee cup is from Coffee First stamp set! I just LOVE that set! The greeting is from the super beautiful Botanical Love stamp set! And the stars are from the Wave of Stars stencil!



I wanted this card to feel like a big warm cup of sunshine! Mmm, sunshine tastes great! Ha!
You could (of course!) color the cup anyway you want, and make a cute little set of cards to give as a gift! 


There are prizes to be had!! Be sure to hop along for your chance to win! You can also link up a card for a chance to win!
We can't wait to see what you make!
Be sure to head over to the Coffee Lovers Blog to read all of the details!
