Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and some happy, crafty news!

Hi all!  I couldn't pass up playing along for another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop hosted by the sweet Amy Tsuruta!


We are right in the middle of that season when we all love getting our hands on that lovely red coffee cup full of yumminess from Starbucks {am I right?!}, so I thought I would go that route.  I cut out my cup, lid and belly band using the super cute set from YNS called Thanks a Latte die set.  I also used the matching set to stamp the coffee beans on the belly band and the outlines on the cup and lid. *love*  I created the background using the cool Line Upon Line set from The Alley Way Stamps.  I stamped it with versa mark ink then embossed with clear EP.  Adds such a cool touch, I think!  The sentiment is from MFT - I've had this coffee set for a while but hadn't inked it up yet, so clearly, I needed to remedy that!  I used a few die-namics for the sentiment and the circles, then added some kraft buttons with thread that I colored with my E25 Copic marker.  The card base is kraft card stock and the coffee cup is up on foam adhesive for more dimension.


Incase you hadn't heard, there are SEVERAL AWESOME stamp companies that are sponsoring this hop!  I'm so excited!  Be sure to visit them and show some love!

Also, I have some blog candy that I'll be sending to one lucky commenter!!!  It's a surprise (read:  I haven't picked out the goodies yet!) but you'll LOVE it, I promise!  :)

*Now for the happy, crafty news!  I was one of the lucky few to be selected for The Alley Way Stamps design team!!!!  YAY!!!!  I'm SO excited and thrilled to finally be able to share the news!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats on making the design team!! You're clearly very deserving of the honor if this design is any indication of your work. There's nothing I like better than coffee besides glitter, of course. And your creation combines both of those loves! Great work.

Toni said...

Really cool card. i was suprised you used clear embossing powder--thought it was copper or something. Really shows up on that kraft!

Chris said...

It's a great CAS card but that sparkle does make it! And, I normally am not into glitter :)

Chris said...

oops! As I pressed submit I saw that two folks pointed out that this was just clear embossing, I was convinced it was glitter - now I like it even more :)
