Coffee Lovers Blog Hop



Well, I'm not a "coffee lover", but I am a lover of making cute coffee-themed cards,
so I thought I'd play along with the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

I decided to break out my Reverse Confetti Be A Barista set for the occasion.
I was playing with some "coffee house" ideas, and decided to go with a chalkboard
technique card, so I gathered up a bunch of my Reverse Confetti sets and made this:


The background was stamped with versa mark and heat embossed in white 
using sentiments from In a Big WayClass ActForever Fall

I die cut the banner using the largest tag from Tag Me & stamped the Be A Barista
image and sentiment in versa fine black and then heat embossed it in clear.
Then, I stamped the foam in versa mark & heat embossed it in white.
I paper-pieced the stripe on the mug using aqua mist card stock.


   

You'll want to visit the Coffee Lovers Bloghop to 
check out the other entries.
You also might want to play along, too, because there
are some amazing sponsors/prizes to be won!

Thanks for looking!
