Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop 2016



Welcome to the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I don't know about you but I sure enjoy a cup of hot coffee flavored with Peppermint Mocha creamer!  If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop and see all the details, including giveaway info, please visit the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog.
I wanted to make a fun, bright card for this hop!  And I kept thinking about how in the Spring it rains and then brings the colorful flowers to the earth as the result.  That was the theme I went with when I created this card.

Jen Carter Coffee Lovers Grey Skies Front

I wanted lots of color to pop against that black, cloudy background. The coffee cup was cut with the Coffee Cozy die set from Lil' Inker Designs.  I stamped the face using a stamp from the So Prickly stamp set. The sentiment is from Dance in the Rain and it is stamped on patterned paper die cut with one of the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag dies.  The little hearts next to the sentiment are from the Greetings & Salutations stamp set.  And those adorable enamel hearts that are floating up, out of the cup in place of the steam, are from a new line from Illustrated Faith.

Thanks for joining me today!  Be sure to visit the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog to visit all of the other participants!
