Winter Coffee Lover’s Bloghop- Day 1

Wow, do the days fly by.  I think I just managed to store my stash of coffee themed stamps and dies away last week and today I got them out for the Winter Coffee Lover’s Bloghop which starts today.

I sat down and looked at my stash for a few minutes.  Nothing was jumping out at me,  Sometimes, when inspiration has gone AWOL, I will just pull out a new stamp set and stamp off a few images.  That usually gets the ideas flowing  This time I thought I would start with a background that I had made and never used.  When I opened the container of backgrounds, sitting right on top was a shadow box using Lawn Fawn dies.  The shadow box used the Winter plaid patterned paper pad and the back of the box had snowflakes on it.  Ok I was getting somewhere.  I had a winter theme going here.  I then looked through my Lawn Fawn stamps and spied the Forest Feast stamp set.  Why not make a scene of forest friends enjoying a morning coffee klatch?

The shadow box turned out well.  I added some birch trees from the Lawn Fawn Joy to the Woods stamp set and dies to add to the woodsy scene.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Coffee and Tea stamp set.

The only problem came when trying to photograph the shadow box.  I had to choose to either focus the back of the scene or the front of the scene and because it was dark outside, the flash cast horrible shadows as well.  Bad photography to be sure, but a cute first project for the hop.
