Coffee and friends make the perfect blend

Monday June 26, 2017
 I am making cards for the Summer Coffee Lovers blog-hop
I said yesterday I was short on having coffee/tea related images.. Well I looked at some old stamps and found more.. woo hoo..
 This is my summer coffee lovers card. I used some nice summery colors (Ranger inks) for the background after I heat embossed the cups (Verve images)  with white embossing powder.  I then found this coffee cup die (Simon Says) and die cut it out and removed the little coffee piece and heart. I found an allover coffee related stamp (Hampton Arts) so stamped the coffee cup. I then colored the heart and coffee strip with copics and went over them with Spectrum Noir glitter pen. The sentiment is from Simon Says and I used a stitched circle die from SS and cut it out. I removed the bottom half. I layered all of the pieces together. I found this awesome ribbon that has swirls in it that reminded me of steam.
