 Be sure to check out the blog hop post, and hopefully you will be able to play along too! I am a huge fan of coffee, tea & cocoa! While I love my Starbucks, I also really love to find locally owned coffee shops with amazing coffee & specialty drinks. We have TONS of them here in Minneapolis, and we are still finding new ones all the time!

Before I get to my card, I did want to mention that Simon Says Stamp is having a 25% off sale on all Ranger products for Memorial Day! This is a great time to pick up some of the Distress Oxide colors you don't have yet, or some refills for your faves!!

How about we get to my card for today? I used some SugarPea Designs goodies to create my card, and they will all be linked at the end of this post. I've been making missing you themed cards a lot lately...I think I just miss my family all the way over in Montana. So, my eyes tend to be drawn towards these kinds of sentiments...and I just love this latte themed one that I used today!

To start, I created an A2 card from white cardstock and set aside. Then I diecut the Large Striped CoverPlate from white cardstock and set it aside as well. Then I proceeded to blend oxide ink in Tattered Rose & Delicata ink in Golden Glitz together to another white cardstock block. Once blended, I spritzed with white shimmer spray, then flicked gold paint splatters to the front of it and the striped CoverPlate diecut.

Next I diecut the word latte four times: once from gold glitter paper and three times from white cardstock. I layered them together with a Zig glue pen, then adhered to the striped diecut. Next I stamped the coffee beans, and the rest of the sentiment to the front using my MISTI.

Then I adhered the ink blended background directly to the card front. Next I popped the Large Striped CoverPlate diecut to the front using foam tape. You have to trim the pieces quite skinny, but it is worth it to have that extra dimension! Then the final step was accenting it with my signature jewels tucked here & there.

Between the Delicata Golden Glitz ink & the Zig gold paint splatters, my card is super shimmery & glitzy. It doesn't photograph super well, but you can kind of see it in this shot.

Well, that is what I have for you today! I might need to step away from the pink & gold here for a bit...I just don't know if I can!! It is my favorite, and it reminds me of my sweet Ellie. So, maybe I will just stick with it. :)

Before you move along and check out the blog hop, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I hang out on Instagram a lot, and share my work in progress in my stories...along with REALLY cute photos of my dogs! :) Plus, I just started a YouTube channel, and while there are only a few videos right now...I will be adding new content consistently!

 
Have a wonderful rest of your day, and enjoy the blog hop!!

  20. It's so summery and sparkly! I love the cheeriness of it, even if the sentiment is a "miss you" sentiment. It's so optimistic.
