National Coffee Day Blog Hop with Joy Clair Designs

Hey y’all! Welcome back to the recently neglected blog! I’ve still been posting over at Joy Clair Designs and on my Instagram account, just haven’t had the time to blog each card I made! But I’m super excited to be back today to share a coffee (well tea!) themed card as part of National Coffee Day!

If you didn’t already come here from Joy Clair Designs blog, make sure to head over there, as they are giving away one gift card of $15 dollars of Joy Clair Designs Store (valid for stamps only) to a randomly chosen comment on the blog post.

Here’s the card I made for the hop! I used the Cup of Joy digital stamp set, and attempted a pastel look because I’m trying to hold on to summer!

I started by printing and coloring one of the images from the Cup of Joy digital stamp set using copic makers (colors listed below). Since I can’t figure out how to use my cricut, I just fussy cut the images, but I did die cut the sentiment with a banner die cause I cannot for the life in me draw a straight line!

Copic Combos :

To finish off the card, I used a piece of pattern paper die cut with a cover die, and adhered the tea cup image and sentiment using some foam tape.
