It’s A Hot Chocolate Kind of Day – Fall/Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

Hello my fellow coffee-lovers!  This is my second post for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.  I wanted to enter another card today showcasing some of my favorite stamp sets by Newton’s Nook Designs.

For my card below, I am featuring the Cup of Cocoa stamp set and its coordinating dies, the Sweater Weather stamp set and coordinating dies and the Sky borders die set.

Just like my first blog post, I stamped the images on Copic friendly ink and colored them  in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I inked up a piece os Bristol smooth white card stock with my Distress Oxide inks and used a circle trio die from my stash to cut the windows.

I adhered the colored background onto my card base with some foam adhesive.  I also die-cut another piece of white card stock using the sky borders die set.   I adhered the images with foam adhesive and some Nuvo liquid glue.


To finish my design, I die-cut the little bows and also stamped the sentiment.  Here’s a little close-up of my card:


I don’t know about you but this kitty cat certainly makes me want to put on some skinny jeans, UGG boots and comfy sweater and drink hot chocolate all day long!  Okay, maybe not all day because I now have low-tolerance on caffeine but maybe two cups will be my limit!  Haha!  Here’s another look:


I hope you like my second card for today!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have an amazing day!

For my project today, I am showcasing the new Crafter’s Essentials – Winter die set  with the Beary Merry stamp set by Neat & Tangled.

I started by stamping my image with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored the images in with my Copic markers.  I die cut the Trees and snowbanks with Neenah Solar white card stock with the Crafter’s Essentials – Winter die set.


I inked up my Bristol smooth white card stock with Tumbled glass and Spun sugar distress oxide inks with my mini-ink blending tool.  I am loving this color-combo for the winter sky!


To finish my design on this card, I added some Stardust stickles on the trees and glossy accents to the North Pole sign.  Here’s a little close-up:

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop with CAS-ual Fridays


Hello coffee lovers and CAS-ual Fridays fans!  I am so excited because today, the CFS Ink Squad is collaborating with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers group.  There will be tons of inspiration during this hop and if you leave comments, you will have the chance to win 1 of 3 $25 Gift Certificates.

For my project, I am showcasing the Coffee Cup Fri-Dies, Coffee Talk Stamp Set and the Hot Coffee stamp set.

I started by stamping my image on some smooth white card stock.  I die-cut the image using the Coffee Cup Fri-Dies.  I colored the image with my Copic markers.

I die-cut a piece of some Bristol Smooth white card stock and used a stencil from my stash to color my background.  I used Carved Pumpkin and Wild Honey distress oxide inks.  I smooshed my Vintage Photo distress oxide onto an acrylic block and added water, then used my watercolor brush to splatter some colors on my background.  I adhered the coffee cup onto my card.


The stamp sets that I used for this card are definitely must-haves for any coffee lovers!  I think the sentiments are so funny!  Here’s a little close-up:


I finished my card design by adding some Sparkling Clear Jewels.  Don’t you think the little color splotches look like coffee?  I love how this card turned out.
