Loving the Coffee Hop

It's Day One of the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I've got an Anne Taintor-inspired card with vintage digi stamp and sentiment typed out in a typewriter font. It's a little less snarky than my cards up on the a2z Scrapbooking blog today.



You can see the stars and glitter line stickers at the top and bottom of the coffee cup panel shining in this pic below.


I used the Hero Arts Digital Stamp set called Make Your Own Sewing Fashion ($11.99 for a ton of sewing images and sentiments) for the woman. 

I colored her red, white and blue and put her on cherry paper to make her summer-themed. Then I realized, one doesn't wear capes in summer. It might even be a wool cape. Ah well, she might be toasty in her outfit if she's outside, but if she's at the office, she might be all right, depending on how frigid the air conditioner is!

The coffee cup background is from the Hero Arts Caffeine Fix Digital Stamps. I'm not great with digis, and couldn't figure out how to lighten the cups, so I just used a piece of vellum to make the background less busy.

Special blog reader benefit--if you head to the a2z Scrapbooking store and put in $25 or more in your cart, you can use my super-secret buddy code to get 15% off! It's CHARK15 but you didn't hear it from me. You can almost always find a 10% off code in the store, but 15 is greater than 10...and even this English major knows that. lololol.

Giveaway: Leave a comment on any or all of my Coffee Hop posts this week here on my blog (you can leave one comment per post for more chances to win) and you'll be entered to win either two Hero Arts stencils (for overseas friends) or this Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle die set (for U.S. buds).
