Today's the day we all get to rejoice in the wonderment that is coffee!! How much do I love thee, let me count the ways. Well, that would take far too long! I am blessed to be in the company of tons of other amazing coffee lovers and card makers. What a great mix so make sure you check out all the amazing creations all along the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop. Here's the card I created for this super fun hop.
I started my card with this fun hello patterned paper. I cut a Dual Dotted Circle from black and then added some Dual Stitched Triangle Dies before adding a cup of amazing looking coffee using the new Lil' Inker Designs Latte Love Stamps and Latte Love Dies. This set is AMAZING!! Totally a must have if you are a coffee lover. I used this cute sentiment to create a coordinating sentiment strip with a touch of vellum at the bottom. Finally, some wooden snowflakes and sequins finish the card off. Here's a closer look:
I was having so much fun with the Latte Love Stamps and Latte Love Dies that I just couldn't stop there! I had to try embossing the coffee/milk with white and then restamping into the liquid embossing with the stamp and some brown ink. This is how it turned out:
I went with another black and white background and more words. Ha ha! I really like black and white. I layered a piece of wood grain paper cut using Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles and then another black and white paper cut using Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Rectangles with some fun snowflake shapes. Next, my paper pieced mug created with the Latte Love Stamps and Latte Love Dies are layered with two sentiment flags that I think are perfect for this warm and cozy card. A few clear sequins finished off the whole look. Here's a closer look so you can see the texture on the froth.
