I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day. The last of our company left about an hour ago so now I can get back to my posts showing the projects I made for the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop.
I tried to use some more spring/summer colors for this card design. My cup and sentiment are from the Stampendous set called Coffee Talk. I stamped the cup onto some alcohol ink background paper I had made previously and since it was a glossy card stock it resembled a ceramic look. The Coffee die is one from Cutplorations the die division of Stamplorations. I used the negative of it and just mounted it over a piece of light green paper. I went with a yellow panel to place all the elements and then added it to a base card of light green. The flowers are some I had in my stash from years back so I used them by alternating two of the blossoms between a yellow and green one. The last thing I added was some gems in the center of each bloom.
Well, that is it for today. I think it is time to do some relaxing after this busy weekend. Next weekend we will have guests again and we will also be attending a wedding. And with doctor appointments and a birthday in the middle of the week I am sure not much creativity will be done. At any rate, I don't want to make a big creative clutter since we will be getting more company soon.
So until next post, take care and forgive me for not commenting when you post as I am not getting notices anymore. I guess from what I have heard it is a blogger issue and therefore not a great deal we can do. Hopefully, things will soon be resolved.
