Coffee Lovers Bloghop Fall/Winter 2022 Day 3

In Calgary, where I live, we love coffee but we also love cowboys. It just makes sense then that I combine two of our favourites on to one cards. I love this paper (Grunge landscapes 1.0) from Paper Rose and when it is combined with the Cowboy Boot sayings 1 from IO Stamps, then you know you have a fun card. The campfire coffee pots are from a very old stamp set from Inky Antics called Coffee Time. I did have to do a bit of stamp surgery to make it work for this card.

Coffee Lovers Bloghop Fall/Winter 2022

It is another measure of how time flies when it is once again time for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop! I look forward to every edition of this wonderful hop, but I did have a bit of an “Oh No!” moment when I couldn’t think of any new stamps/dies/paper/embelli’s that I had put in my stash since the last hop. I had nothing to fear, however, as the first thing I saw when I opened my coffee-themed box was the wonderful paper that I used on this card/gift. The paper came from the Paper Collage in Phoenix. I understand that Paper Collage has changed its operation to offer only its own exclusive paper. Check them out.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and is called Sassy Pants Holiday Too. It was perfect as this project is BOTH a card and a gift. The shopping bag contains a gift card and is only attached to the card with velcro circles. The recipient can pull off the shopping bag and pop it in her purse to go shopping. It re-attaches to the card if the recipient wants to display or keep the card.

The gift card die is from Spellbinders. It is the Large Die of the Month from April 2019.

I think it turned out quite well for my first card in the hop. Now I have to dig a little deeper in my stash to come up with something new for day 2.
