Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2017

Welcome to the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  This is a hop full of Spring inspired coffee cards.  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.

Jen Carter Coffee Donut Perfect Pairs

I wanted to use bright Springy colors for this card (as you can tell, LOL!).  I started by piecing my background together. I first die cut the Lil' Inker Designs Cover Up Die: Stitches & Stripes in several colors and then pieced the colored stripes in between the white stripes.  I love the versatility of this die and how easy it is to add color (or not) and change things up!

I next focused on my image panel.  I used one of the Dual Dotted Squares dies to die cut the white square.  I then die cut and stamped the donut and coffee dual from Perfect Pairs (you can find the coordinating Perfect Pairs Dies here) and colored them in with my copics.  The yellow cup was inspired by Starbucks new Spring yellow cups!  I thought that the sweet little donut needed a yellow flower in her icing too. 😄  Lastly I added the sentiment that is from the Cat Treats Stamp set (there is a cat with a coffee in that set too, check it out!).

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