Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Woohoo! Calling all coffee lovers (and, yes tea lovers are welcome too — but honestly, how can one exist without coffee?!?) for the Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop. Amy Tsuruta has done it yet again (and in the middle of a move — how do you do it all??). This blog hop is run by Super Sponsors so that means that there a LOT of prizes along the way. So, sit back and get ready to be inspired! The Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop will run May 6 – 13…so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

I’m a Super Sponsor!

I’m excited to be one of the Super Sponsors for this blog hop. What does that mean? Well, first I get to show off some of my favorite Close To My Heart products and — keep on reading! — because there is a prize drawing!

I was really excited to see that Close To My Heart has a brand new stamp set (and you can get it with matching thin cut dies too if you like) in their newest May / June catalog. It’s called Coffee Helps. Yes, yes it does! I am loving the sentiments and the retro feel of the images. I also love the fancy doily dies that CTMH rolled out for their National Scrapbooking Month promotion. This beautiful paper is from CTMH’s Sweet As Honey Cardmaking workshop kit…this kit is such a great value as it includes paper, stamps and matching thin cut dies, card bases and envelopes and enamel dots. It’s been one of my favorite kits to date! To stamp my sentiment, I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and then I could use this same ink to color my “coffee”.

  21. Love your card. I was introduced to stamping many years ago at a CTMH (it was still DOTS then) party. Used them exclusively until they announced they were going clear, then my group switched to SU. Still have never tried any of the clear CTMH sets, but fondly remember their ink and paper colors.
