Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hey, y'all! Happy Friday!!
Shelly, here!


Today is the start of the Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!!
A Jillian Vance Design is a sponsor, as well! So, I have a fun coffee card to share with y'all!

I used the new Grandpa's glass die!



Instead of using it as the traditional die, I made a stencil out of it! I just took a piece of scrap paper and used the die with it. After, I removed all the pieces from the die except for the coffee/steam part of it. Once done, I placed it on my cardstock and used some distress inks with it. (Before removing my whole stencil, I made sure to piece by piece stencil in my coffee/steam part.)


To finish my card off, I used the Polka Dot Rectangle die with my stenciled image and then added my sentiment.

I'd love to hear what you think?!...
