Coffee Spoons-Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Welcome back!  Lisa here and today I'm sharing with you some new release inspiration!  We're in the middle of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and A Jillian Vance Design has a new caffeinated release that you are gonna love!  Shelly shared some in her post on the AJVD Hop Post here!  And I've got some more for you today!  Meet the new Cozy Cup Die Set and the Brewed To Perfection Stamp Set!

That coffee bean background is so cool isn't it??  I stamped mine in Versamark using my Misti and then heat embossed with some Wow Caramel Macchiato embossing powder.  I let it cool for a minute and then put it back in the Misti (my stamp was still waiting patiently in position) and stamped over that again in Versamark (tip... make sure you put it back in in the right direction... don't ask how I know) and then sprinkled on a bit of Stampendous Shabby White embossing Enamel..not completely covering it.. just enough to add a little extra texture and a kind of splatter... and heated it up again.

I cut all of my cup pieces from white except for the spoon.  And see the pretty flower pattern die I used?  I cut a second cup in some gold cardstock to layer behind the white.  You could just cut a strip if you wanted the same look, but it was just so easy to line up the extra cup.  I cut the spoon from some matte gold foiled cardstock.  I used some Antique Linen Distress Oxide on the cup and saucer, colored the coffee insert with some brown Copics and then covered the steam die cut with Wow embossing ink in a dauber applicator and heat embossed the whole thing in that Shabby White powder... I love how it came out! And my tweezers came in quite handy for that one!  Then I assembled all of my pieces and to have enough room for my sentiment, I positioned the cup and saucer over the edge of the card and then cut the overhanging part off.

Finally I stamped, trimmed, and distressed my sentiment with the same ink as I applied to the cup for that aged look.  Don't you just love that sentiment??  A few sequins and I was done!

Well... that was a lot of words and thanks for sticking with me!  I had so much fun with these new sets and already have lots of ideas for them!  I hope you are having fun and playing along with the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and good luck!  Come back again soon!
