Pastel Coffee Cups

Hello, everybody!  Today is the start of one of my favourite blog hops - the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Yay!  I'll be sharing coffee- and tea-themed projects all week so stay tuned!


I went with pastel colours for a spring vibe.  I die-cut a number of coffee cups and hearts using dies from my stash and then arranged them on the front of my card.  Happily I was able to use a lot of my snippets/scraps!  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Hug in a Mug and I heat-embossed it in white on a vellum scrap.


I would also like to support the following challenges: Cardz TV 49 AG 1/3; Crafty Creations AG 1/2; Creative Craft Cottage Dies and Punches (used both) 3/3; Creative Fingers AG 1/3; Cupcake Inspirations Pastels 1/3; DL.ART May Linky AG 1/d; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Lil Patch of Craft Friends AG 1/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 1/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 1/3; Pixie's Snippet Playground 326 Use Snippets/Scraps (cardstock and vellum) 1E; The Corrosive May AG 3/3; The House that Stamps Built Repeat Impressions Anything Goes Challenge ~ M2318; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5 wk1



Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
