Lawnscaping Coffee Blog Hop!

Hello!!
Welcome to the Lawnscaping June Blog Hop! As I'm sure you have figured out if you've been hopping along already, the theme is Coffee!! Who doesn't love coffee?! Even if you don't I'm sure you rely on it every once and a while ;) So pull up, grab a cup of coffee and get hopping!
There are lots of prizes to be won! Winners will be chosen by comments left on the blog hop stops. So be sure to comment on all the lovely coffee themed projects on your way for your chance to win!
You probably came from Tammy H's blog. If not the full order is at the end of my post or you can start at the Lawnscaping blog.



For my first project I wanted to make my background look like coffee stains!
I created this effect by water-coloring with distress inks. I started with watercolor paper and colored on my distress inks ,I used both antique linen and frayed burlap with a water brush, creating sort of messy circles and sort of splattered some ink along the way. I stamped the little bean from the Love You Latte set along the edge. I used the new Stitched Borders die as well along the edge. I colored my little bear from the Party Animal set with Copic markers on separate piece of white card stock and fussy cut him out. I did the same with the little mug he's holding. I stamped my Love you latte sentiment to finish this card off:)


For my second project, I made a coffee scrub that I thought would make a cute little gift for any coffee lover. Its simply coconut oil and coffee grounds and smells amazing! But its not a gift without a cute little tag! I created the tag with the I Love You a Latte stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I started by cutting the tag out with my Cricut. I stamped my cute coffee images and colored them in with Copic markers, added my sentiment and some coffee steam and that's it for my tag. Easy and cute!:)




Thank you so much for hopping along today! 
Hope your enjoying the coffee themed projects!
You have until 11:50PM EST on June 28th to get your comments in. Winners will be announced next week on the Lawnscaping blog.
