Strong Coffee - Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Hello and happy Wednesday!  The Coffee Lover's Spring Summer blog hop is in fully swing and once, again, A Jillian Vance Design is a super sponsor!   Rosemary here and I have a coffee themed card to share today that I made with the new Brewed to Perfection stamp set and the new Cozy Cup die set.


As I was thinking about what to make my mind wandered to all the lovely cup and saucer sets that I see whenever I take my youngest to one of his favorite antique stores.  A lot of them have pretty floral patterns and that is what I decided to create for my card.  I used some lovely papers from the My Mind's Eye Gingham Garden 6x6 pad.  One of the papers had the small floral design I was looking for so I die cut my cup and saucer from that.  After die cutting the cup I though it needed a little something else so I used one of the little elements from the die set to cut out the sweet floral pattern and that made all the difference!   I used a yellow striped paper as a background for my cup and cut it using a medium sized Rectangle Backdrop die.  The spoon was die cut from silver cardstock and the swirl from another piece of paper from the pad.  The reverse of that pattern was the fun light blue and gray plaid so I used that for my sentiment.  The paper was die cut with the smallest Stitched Dot Rectangle die.  The large off white rectangle was die cut with the largest Stitched Dot rectangle die.   For the inside of the cup I die cut a piece of paper and simply colored with two brown Copic markers.   A small paper doily was trimmed down, adhered to the striped panel and then I layered on the rest of the elements finishing with the spoon.   The panel was then adhered to a light blue cardstock base.
