Happy Spring - Spring2017CLH






Ah Spring, that time of year when the weather gets warm, the sun shines brighter, trees bud, and the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop is here!  The Coffee Lovers Bloghop come around each season for crafters to show off our caffeine inspired creations.  Anyone can play, the only requirement is that your creation must have a coffee, tea, or cocoa theme and reflect the corresponding season.  The Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop runs from Friday, March 24th through Friday, March 31st.

For my first card for the bloghop I did the emboss-resist technique on the background.  I used spring tones to get a get bright bursts of colors around white embossed flowers.  I colored the coffee mug in pink and added a light aqua ribbon and matching sequins.  

Recipe:
Stamps:  Better with You, Coffee Helps - Verve, Reason to Smile - SU
Paper:  WW, Cucumber Crush
Ink:  Cucumber Crush, Regal Rose, Cool Caribbean, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories:  Nestabilities, Ribbon, Sequins, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool
