Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2017 with A Jillian Vance Design!

Welcome to the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop 2017. 
 Get ready to see some awesome cards themed for Summer and Coffee. 
 You might even want to pour yourself a cup and get comfortable!!
This blog hop never disappoints!!
I want to give a shout out to my sponsor ~ A Jillian Vance Design 
They have a great selection of  Coffee Stamps.  
Check them out ~ 

I used the beautiful Sunburst Swirl background stamp by A Jillian Vance Design for the card background. I loved the swirls, just letting the smell of the coffee, take me away.  The background stamp is stamped on the card front and then I added layers with the coffee cup, sentiment and vintage milk cap. 

Here is a closeup of that gorgeous coffee cup (Cup of Love stamp) by A Jillian Vance Design.  The cup is stamped with Ranger ink/Potting Soil and trimmed out.  Buttons were added along with splats of black ink.

Products Used:
A Jillian Vance Design: Perk Up
