Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day One!




Today is the day...the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  What is that?  It's a quarterly hop that follows the seasons (Summer, Fall, Winter + Spring).  The season also determines the theme so start designing those SUMMER cards for the hop!  Make sure you check out the hop post HERE.  There are 77 Super Sponsors!  To be eligible for any of the prizes upload a newly created Summer themed project that includes coffee, tea and/or cocoa!

I've been on a bit of a nautical kick and love working with the Hero Arts Tentacles stamp:


I made THIS card last week....it was all inspired by THIS card designed by Kimberly!

Let's start at the bottom and work our way up.  The main panel is from the Pool Mix Layering Papers pack.  I stamped the Pearl Strings Bold Prints in Orchid Bold Ink  on a Floral Mix Layering Paper panel.

The Coffee Cup Tags Frame Cuts was used on a Pool Mix Layering Paper.  I used a Starbucks sleeve too!


The Tentacles have been stamped and cut out and colored with copics.  My basic colors were inspired by Color Throwdown. I had some serious squirrel moments and was happily creating away when I was completely done, I realized that I forgot to add some of the colors.  I had been working on another card for the same challenge so I mixed everything up...that's what I get trying to juggle multiple projects.  I don't generally do that to myself.

The sentiment is from the Color Layering Octopus set...cracking myself up.


Hero Arts is a returning Super Sponsor for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Link up a newly created Summer project that features coffee, tea and/or cocoa for a chance to win!

I can't wait to hop around and be inspired!
