Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and a Freebie

A new season is upon us and that means it's time for the Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Hooray! I just love seeing all the coffee/tea/cocoa inspired creations filling up the blogosphere during these hops. Everyone makes such wonderful creations and I always see a gazillion things I want to buy. Not to mention all the fabulous inspiration from all you talented stampers!

Verve is proud to be a hop Super Sponsor once again. We're providing one of the oh-so-many fabulous prizes up for grabs for those who link up a newly created spring themed coffee, tea or cocoa project over on the official Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post.  The linkup is open through March 31, so I hope you have a fabulous week of getting inky!

To celebrate the hop and the changing of the season, I've designed this Rise and Shine free digital set for your enjoyment.  f you share your creations online please use @vervestamps on Instagram or Facebook so I can come have a look-see. And be sure to check out all of our coffee, tea and cocoa stamp offerings. It's a great time to adopt a new set, as all stamps and dies are 30% off through April 17.


For my project today, I used a sentiment and a mug from the Rise & Shine digi set.  I printed with a laser printer, then colored the mug with Copics.  I cut the sentiment using the Sweet Scallop Tag Die, and used a stitched circle die for the mug, then hand punched a little hole and tied them together with some twine. Next I pulled out a bit of leftover striped vellum to make a little pocket for a tea bag.  I thought the sentiment was perfect for a little encouragement card for a friend.


This Palais Des Thes Blue of London Earl Grey is my current favorite. I discovered it at a little French patisserie near us and have been a little bit obsessed since then. The brown strip on the side of the packaging didn't match the colors of my card, so I ran some washi down the side, and added a bit of the same washi to the bottom of the tag to tie it in.  The paper is a pad from the way, way back by BasicGrey.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy the hop!
Spread a little sunshine using the Rise and Shine digi set, then come back here to this post and link up your creation for a chance to win a $40 gift voucher to the Verve shop. I'll draw a random winner on April 18, 2017. I can't wait to see what you create!
