Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - How Have You Bean?!

Well, it is Spring, and I do LOVE coffee - so what better way to celebrate than to join in the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop?!! I used Sketch 490 from Mojo Monday as a guide and began creating!

I started off by heat embossing a cute coffee cup from the Pretty Cute Stamps Coffee Faces stamp set onto a piece of Tattered Angels 12x12 Pure Mistable Crepe Paper cut to fit my card. This paper is so cool! It is a lightweight textured paper that has a crepe paper effect when misted - and is available in other textures such as burlap, leather and more!

I used my Tattered Angels Mists from the English Garden Calendar Kit to spray the Mistable paper, and because the cup stamp was heat embossed with white it resisted the misting. I didn't spray the middle since it was going to be covered anyway. Then, I dried it with my heat gun.

I then used the same mists to paint in portions of this yummy Coffee Stamps On Kraft paper from Canvas Corp, just dipping my paint brush right into the mist bottles. I even used a circle punch to cut out one of the coffee images and glued it to a piece of Canvas Corp Aqua Burlap, handcut to a circle.

Here's a look at the  Tattered Angels English Garden Calendar Kit - where you get 4 coordinating mists in a smaller size to mix and match. There are tons of Calendar Kits available and are a great way to try them out and see what you love best! I used some of the White High Impact Paint to paint the edge of a burlap flower I found in my stash after misting it with the Iris Baseboard (purple) and Tutti Frutti (pink) mists from the kit.

I used one of the sentiments from the Pretty Cute Stamps Coffee Sentiments set on the diecut coffee cup cut from the PPPR Pumpkin Spice Latte cut file. I used some pretty Canvas Corp Kraft and White Chevron paper for the base of my cup and traced the cut coffee holder onto the back of a piece of the Canvas Corp White Flute paper. I love that the corrugated look of this paper actually looks like a coffee cup holder!!

I stamped a few coffee beans and added some lovely SpiegelMom Scraps sequins!

This was such a fun card to make, and I love the texture on that Mistable Paper! But now I'm totally craving a cup of coffee!
