Thanks a Latte

Hi friends! It's a brand new month and I'm popping in to share a few Verve-y things. {grin}  First off, our Red, White and Blue Sale kicks off today with 25% off all in-stock stamps, dies and sequins through July 4.

Also, starting today you can pre-order the July Release Collection. It includes the three sets and two coordinating die sets in this release. The pre-order price is 25% off and is only available through July 9. So if you love Verve and coffee or tea or Jesus {grin}, reserve yours today! Pre-orders are expected to ship beginning July 10.

One more little bit of news before I move on to my card... we've got THREE amazing guest designers joining us this month.  Hop on over to the Verve Blog today to see who they are! They're rocking some beautiful Verve cards, too, so go take a peek.  I'll wait here. {grin}

Okay, time for the card. I started this card last weekend, fully intending to link it up during the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, but I just didn't manage to find a bit of time the entire week to sneak away to my studio and stamp. Isn't that the way some weeks go? So last night after the kiddos FINALLY went to bed, instead of plopping on my bed in exhaustion like I normally do, I decided to head to the studio and spend 30 minutes making a card.

I had this cup from the soon to be releasing Fill My Cup stamped, colored, die cut and glittered already and a bunch of Americana paper scraps on my desk. I remembered the Ways to Use It challenge at Splitcoast this week was to use strips of paper. So I took three strips of patterned paper, taped them together and then cut them with the Stitched Pennants Die Set. I liked the look of it, so continued taping scraps of paper together until I came up with a layout I liked.  I stamped the Thanks a Latte sentiment in early espresso, then sponged all the layers with antique linen and frayed burlap distress ink. I finished off with a twine bow and a teeny tiny rhinestone star.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
