Hi, everyone!

It’s “that time” again… blog hop time with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! I LOVE this hope because it inspires me to pull out my coffee stamps and play so consider this your warning. I’ll be sharing quite a few coffee cards over the next week or so as the inspiration juju is flowing strong! Get ready for it! (Wink!)

Anyway, here’s my first card for the latest hop!

A stamped coffee card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

I had a few scraps of patterned paper left on my desk from other recent projects so I simply took them and plopped them on a card created from kraft cardstock. Then I pulled out a couple Paper Smooches stamp sets and stamped the coffee cups, hearts and steam, partly on the patterned paper strips and partly on the card. Rather than using markers, I used colored pencils to add a little “rough” color to the cups. I didn’t fuss over perfection. I simply wanted to add a little color, hence the “embrace imperfection” look of this card. HelloMochaChocaCard-2-teri

I finished the card by adding the sentiments to it. To make the “mocha” phrase not run into the “hello” word, I simply stamped it on a strip of cardstock. Always a fun way to add a little visual interest to a card. I also added a few dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. Love those things.

Alrighty, guys! This is it for me. I’ll be back again later with another card to share with you.

And don’t forget to take some time and check out the hop over the next few days. There’s always a great deal of inspiration shared. All kinds of styles, all kinds of images too. It’s always so fun to see what everyone comes up with… and just how many projects everyone makes in honor of the hop.

Thanks for stopping by!
