Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop


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.


Thanks so much for checking out my cards today!  I hope you like my winter coffee cards and I hope you'll take part in the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  There are a ton of awesome sponsors including Lil' Inker Designs.  Don't miss out on all the fun!  Plus, if you order the Latte Love Stamps and Latte Love Dies today or tomorrow, you will get free shipping -- use code FREECOFFEE!  That's awesome!
