2021 National Coffee Day Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's Julee Tilman popping in with a super exciting blog hop today! We're so excited to once again be one of a long list of Super Sponsors for the National Coffee Day Blog Hop! This is a traditional blog hop hosted by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with prizes for commenting on the company blogs in the hop. Each of the stops on the hop are hosting their own giveaway, so you'll definitely want to grab yourself a cup of something awesome and hop along!



We've got a few caffeinated creations to share, along with our giveaway info, so be sure to read to the end and comment with one of your favorite coffee related sentiments for a chance to win! If you want to take a gander at our coffee/tea/cocoa stamp offerings, we're not going to stop ya! Or if you're into caffeinated digis, we've got those, too! {grin}

Speaking of stamp offerings, for my card today, I'm featuring a card made with my Fall Breeze stamp set. I stamped and colored the leaf cup image three times with Copic markers, then cut with the coordinating Fall Breeze Die Set. I did the same with the steam, then got to work on the backgrounds.  I used the Delightfully Delicate Stencil on the seafoam cardstock layer in grey ink.  The coffee word background is from the Texture Tiles 9 stamp set and I added a little of the same pattern of stenciling on it as well.  I finished with a sentiment from Sentimental Wordfetti.



My second card features my new Holiday Cheer Digi (this was formerly released with Verve as the Good Cheer Digi).




Some of our creative team members have a dose of caffeinated goodness they're sharing today:




Card by Sheri features Fall Breeze.

What beautiful cards! I love all things coffee and SNSS has so many great sets, so it’s hard to pick a favorite. Pre-coffee, I’d have to say, “Coffee helps me feel less murdery.” Post-caffeinated I’ll go with these words from the check off list on the Fill My Cup set: Java, Joy, Jesus.

Such awesome caffeinated inspiration!
Thanks for being a returning Super Sponsor.

I know I'm going to have to come back and read the comments on this one. Sue A's 'less murdery' comment cracked me up.

These days I'm liking the: I don't need a inspirational quote, I need coffee type of sentiment.
