Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm participating in the Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop.  I've participated in all the Coffee Lovers' Blog Hops - they are so much fun!  Why don't you join in!  Just link up a newly created summer-themed coffee, tea, or cocoa project. The linky is open now until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on Friday, June 12. Hope to see you there!


I went with a tea-themed card using Top Dog Dies Teatime Decorative Die Set. Top Dog Dies is one of our Super Sponsors!  I die-cut the tea pot in black and added metallic gold thread behind it. The little puff of steam is from Your Next Stamp Gingerbread House Die Set.  Your Next Stamp is also one of our Super Sponsors!  


The fun sentiment is from The Greeting Farm Tea-riffic Clear Stamps. Strips of chevron and gold washi tape were added on the left edge, and I finished the card with some gold sequins. The colour combo was based on the inspiration graphics at Cupcake Inspirations and ShowCASe Your Style:
