Coffee Break at V's Sweet Ideas/Blog Hop

Hello, crafty friends!  It's time for a super fun Blog Hop with V's Sweet Ideas to celebrate their new high-quality stamp sets.  The new set we're showcasing today is called Coffee Break, and it's SUPER cute!  You should have arrived here from Nicole's Blog, but if you just happened to find this hop, you can go back to Lisa's Blog to get started.
For my project, I chose to create a Starbucks gift card holder.  I used a wood looking gift card holder/envelope and used one of the iced coffee stamps to create my image.  I stamped it on cream, green and kraft paper.  Then, I cut out each one, and then layered the colors to achieve this look.  I added sequins from V's Sweet Shoppe, and then I stamped the sentiment (I love you latte!) from the Coffee Break stamp set, and layered that; making a "flag" with a decorative toothpick.  I tied on a length of Solid Green Twine from V's Sweet Ideas, and then I just tucked my Starbucks card into the pocket.
Two winners will be chosen from all the comments left on the hop, so be sure to leave a comment on each of the five blogs along the way.  Each winner will receive this lovely Coffee Break stamp set from V's Sweet Ideas.  The deadline for leaving your comments is midnight EST on Thursday, January 22.  Then, you can check back on the V's Sweet Ideas Blog on Friday, January 23, to see if you are one of the two lucky winners.  That's easy!  And, you'll find lots of great inspiration on each blog for ways to creatively use this adorable new stamp set.
 
V's Sweet Ideas has LOTS of great stamp sets and embellishments that are absolutely ADORABLE.  Take a moment to check out this sweet store.  There's also a monthly challenge going on where you can enter to win a $10 Gift Certificate to V's Sweet Ideas.
 
Your next stop on the Blog Hop is at our Guest Designer's Blog, Sierra Winters.  She has something SUPER CUTE to share with you!
 
Good luck, and have fun!
Karen

I'm linking my Coffee Break project to the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge Blog - Simon Says "It's A Guy Thing" - This is officially a uni-sex project.  I know my husband would love it, so it's a guy thing because coffee is also a guy thing.  That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!
