Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Hi folks and welcome to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  WooHoo!  I can't think of anything more exciting than celebrating the combo of coffee and crafting!  (Can you tell that I love coffee...oh man, can't live without it each morning!)

My coffee lovin' card features a darling stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy; Pick Me Up.  The stamp set contains six images and six coffee-themed sentiments.  There's also a coordinating die set for the stamp set...yippee!

My card actually started out as an ATC...can you see it?  I created the entire ATC, including all of the patterned paper, stamped image, and attaching of the sentiment before I glued the entire piece onto a standard size card, which has been embossing using a Tim Holtz embossing folder.

My coffee cup was embossed using Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink and embossing powder, both in Cornflower Blue.  I then used white paint and a "splotty" stamp to add the white dots..instant faux graniteware (thank you Wendy!)

Be sure to continue on the hop, and leave comments, so that you're entered into the prize drawings.  Did you see all that's up for grabs?  A BIG thank you to all of our sponsors!  Click here to get to the beginning of the hop.  Enjoy!  Links to more crafty goodness below!
