Happy National Coffee Day! Did you not know it was National Coffee Day? Well now you do- and we have all kinds of Coffee Inspiration for you!!! I am enjoying an Island Coconut from Green Mountain Coffee, hot. I usually am drinking a Dunkin Donuts Iced Caramel Swirl Coffee but no time to stop on the way to work today.
Amy and Chaitali are hosting this fabulous Blog Hop today and it was the perfect excuse to create another card with the new Lawn Fawn Love You A Latte set! I was hanging out with some of my crafty peeps on Google Hangout last night and I whipped up this “warm wishes” card. I wanted to play with Doodlebugs Paper Doilies. I actually don’t own a lot of coffee themed stamps so that part was an easy pick for me.
I stamped and watercolored in the coffee cup with distress inks on distress watercolor paper. I just love adding the little mustache face to it!! Wicked cute!! I used Peacock Feathers and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I mounted all of this onto one of Lawn Fawns new woodgrain notecards, I just LOVE these! I was sharing with my friends while creating it I feel like I do the same thing over and over with sentiments. I almost left this one without a sentiment because I wasn’t sure what would work. They reminded me I could put one on the inside! Ha! I always forget that as I am usually designing cards for classes or my blog and its one more thing to photograph or remind people in classes.
I also just wanted to point out that this month’s card kit from Simon Says Stamp has the cutest coffee themed stamp set and all kinds of other goodies! I think their kits are some of the best value ever!! Check it out!
I can’t wait to see what everyone else created for this hop! If you would like to hop around to other coffee creations you can start the hop here. Everyone is linking their posts at the bottom of the blog post. There are many sponsors and ways to win prizes so be sure to check it out!!
