Coffee Lovers & Paper Sweeties

Hello, everyone, and welcome by my blog today.  I am excited to share with you all that I am a brand new Design Team Member over at Paper Sweeties.  I have loved their sweet stamps, dies, seam binding, sequins and other little lovelies for quite some time now.  I was ticked pink when Debbie asked me to join the team.  I really am hoping to do a good job with these sweet products, and to use them in ways that will inspire YOU, my readers, to buy a few of the things I showcase for them.  Please always remember that if you have any questions about how I've done something, or what I used, etc., just ask me anything.  I'm here to help, and never mind answering questions.  That's how we all learn, right?
I wanted to play along in the Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop and since Paper Sweeties is one of the sponsors this year, I wanted to share a coffee-loving project using a Paper Sweeties stamp set.  I chose to use the Coffee, Yes Please Stamp Set and the coordinating Coffee, Yes Please Sweet Cuts to die-cut my sweet stamped images.  And let me tell you, having the coordinating Sweet Cuts for the stamp set makes it SO easy to make perfectly stamped and cut images.  From the Coffee, Yes Please Stamp Set, I used the coffee mug, foam, heat swirls, coffee beans with leaves, the small heart, and two of the sentiments included in this set.  If you like playing along in the Coffee Lovers' Blog Hops each season, then you will definitely want to check out all the super sweet coffee themed stamp sets Paper Sweeties carries.  That way, you'll be ready for the next Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop, AND get to make some really adorable cards in the process.  There's just SO much to see.
All the patterned papers and stickers are from Simple Stories Homespun Holiday (super old line from my stash).  I added a sequin from the Winter Mix Sequin Pack and placed a tiny pearl accent sticker in its center, then I added a seam binding bow using Frosting Seam Binding that I topped with a couple of super cute Rusty Jingle Bells.  I tried to keep the card "sorta" simple (at least for me...LOL) so that you could really see that fabulous coffee cup.  Paper Sweeties has so many great products that you will love. Why not stop by today and check out the sweetest of stamps and so much more.
Before I run off, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the wonderful sponsors of the Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop (including Paper Sweeties).  There are so many generous companies in our crafting community, and we all need to be mindful of how very blessed we are to have their generous prizes in blog hops like this.  We are very lucky people for sure!

Thanks for visiting.

Here's where I'm linking up my Paper Sweeties Coffee Lovers' card:
