Me again! Shocked? Been on a bit of a card roll and couldn’t resist sharing one more quick card made in honor of the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
Drum roll, please. Here we go.
It was quick to make this one. Had the stamps so… just wanted to play.
The cup and assorted cup-like things are all from Lawn Fawn’s Pumpkin Spice set. Yes, so, so cute… and a must for a Pumpkin Spice Latte lover, although it could totally pass off for cocoa. Don’t you agree?
The words from the Perk Up set from Technique Tuesday.
Always fun to pair two sets together that are different styles but have the same theme going on. Mixing and matching really does make me happy.
Used my trusty white Nuvo Crystal Dots to add some subtle dots with the shaking scene that’s going on. Super simple but a fun way to add a little kick to a card.
Anyhoooo, that’s what I got. Be sure to swing by the hop. So many great cards! Bravo to all the participants!
Me again. Back with another card! Today’s card is a two-fer!
I made with because of my annual Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley! But it was also inspired by the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
So meet today’s card.
Created the mug of goodness with the help of the Mug Hugs stamp set from Sunny Studio stamps. Did a little masking so I could make it look like the candy cane was in the mug. I stamped the heart right onto the mug too. It fit perfectly.
Grounded the mug by stamping a mask on sticky note paper, placing it over and it and then sponging on some black ink. I removed the mask and ended up with that little shadow.
The words are the bottom of the card are also from the Mug Hugs stamp set.
Once again, that’s all I have for you. Be sure to check out the Coffee Lovers Bloghop to see all the other coffee-inspired cards! So many good ones.
And be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her take today on our annual Christmas Card Challenge!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by. You are the best.
Hi guys !
Back on the old blog-a-roo with another card to share! Couldn’t resist making something in honor of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
So meet today’s card.
Just had fun here, letting the frame cutting die-cut lead me on where to place the stamped images.
The cups, beans, heart, steam and words are all from the Perk Up stamp set, which (in full disclosure here) I designed for Technique Tuesday.
I did all the coloring on the card with markers. I was trying to be all cool and stuff so I added a little shadow at the bottom of each cup with a darker marker and then blended in the color with the lighter marker. The shadow on the cups is subtle but I think it looks kinda cool.
I did the same thing with the coffee beans too. 🙂
I wish I had more to say to you, but it’s the end of the weekend. I’m tired. The writing tank is dry so that’s what I got. I’ll try to give you a wordier post next time.
But be sure to swing by the Bloghop to see lots of other cool coffee-themed projects. Always so fun to see what everyone comes up with!
See you again soon, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

So enough hop talk. Let’s see the card.
Ooh la la!
Made this one with the new With Sympathy die. Not exactly a fun occasion to make cards for, but an important reason to make cards for. Having lost both of my parents in the
I created the background by brushing watercolors on watercolor paper and then splattering on some water drops and blowing them dry with my heat gun.
To add to the watery feel of the card (is there such a thing?), I dripped on a few drops of Glossy Accents around and near the flourishes.
Alright! Hope you enjoy the hop.
Thanks for stopping by today, friends!
