Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!


Today I'm participating in the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.. You may remember this Hop back in September for National Coffee Day.. It was so much fun that Amy Tsuruta our Hostess is doing it again!

And Wow are their some great sponsors and prizes along the way.. You want to make sure you Hop along and leave comments on all the Blogs to be entered to win. We'd love it if you joined us with your Holiday Coffee project... Just created and Link up! The Hop fun ends on Sunday Dec. 14th @ 11:59 pm PST... but the Linky Closes on Friday @ 1:5pm PST.


Pssst.. there might be Blog candy at the end of this post.


I a fun Holiday Coffee Card using some items in my stash that haven't even been opened yet!!! I started with a Crumb Cake card front and then I added some Embossing paste that I colored with Early Espresso ink through a Tim Holtz Stencils called Splatters. My sketch comes from this week's Freshly Made Sketches. 


Once the background was dry I added some Real Red polka Dotted DSP and a strip of Wild Wasabi punched with the dotted scalloped border. Then I added some White bakers' twine to the edge and adhered it with dimensionals. 

I stamped the coffee cup from the Simon Says Stamp set What's Brewing? in Memento Ink and added some shading with my Copics and stamped the Words from the Essentials by Ellen set called Merry & Bright. I stamped the Holly from the same set in Real Red & Wild Wasabi inks. Then I cut it out and added it with dimensionals. I glued the Crumb Cake piece to an Early Espresso card base. Such a fun card! 


Be sure to head to Amy's Blog and start at the beginning of the Hop if you haven't already you don't want to miss any of the fun! If you read all that.... Leave a comment below with contact email, for a chance to win a $5 Gift Card to Dunkin' Donuts! I'll randomly select a winner on Monday Dec. 15th. 


Thanks for stopping by!
