Coffee Lovers Bloghop Spring/Summer 2019 #4

 

Once more I have used the Ciao Bella Paper………………………..I must be reformed…………………so often I am loathed to cut in to and use up my favourite papers.  This time though the focal image and sentiment are from Altenew.

The sentiment makes me laugh out loud, as I am very conscientious about never running out of coffee.

Recently, I bought the impossible die designed by Christina Widemark at Scraps of Love, Peoria, Arizona.  It occurred to me that this card type is perfect for a gift card.  It also occurred to me that  the Ciao Bella paper collection would ensure that the recipient knew this card was about coffee.

I did mention that the wonderful Buongiorno Italiano from Ciao Bella would be back before the Coffee Lovers Bloghop was over, but even I didn’t expect it to be teamed up with Lawn Fawn and Honey Bee stamps.

I always thought the Blah Bunny from Honey Bee stamps looked like she needed a jolt of coffee to improve her disposition. You can see the “change” in her attitude via the Picture Changer die from Lawn Fawn.

This card was so much fun to make it even changed my mood for the better!  Enjoy!

Coffee Lovers Bloghop spring/Summer 2019

 

Once again time has flown by and it is time for the first Coffee Lovers bloghop of 2019.  I am always conscious of the next coffee bloghop coming up and look for new coffee stamps and patterned paper as a regular part of my craft supplies shopping.  I hit the jackpot this go-round with the exquisite Buongiorno Italiano collection from Ciao Bella.  It has both an elegant and a casual feel, so I think it will turn up on my cards several times this week.

I have used the Karen Burniston Coffee Cup pop-up before, but it is such a classic for giving a coffee card to someone that I had to use it again.  Just using different paper makes the card look fresh.  The only problem with this card is photographing it.  I confess to glueing the card front and back to my dining room table for the photo.  Don’t worry “no wood finish was harmed during the filming of this post”………..at least I hope not.

Here is the card inside and out:

The  Altenew sentiment says, “Coffee …when your brain needs a hug”.   Isn’t that so true.
