2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop #9

 

Ok, I lied.  I managed to make one more card before leaving for work.

I wanted to use The Daily Grind collection from Photoplay.  I mean if you don’t use it for a coffee bloghop when can you use it?

I wanted to repeat the pattern on the background on the focal cup.  I used Amplify to make the dimensional coffee cream.  I like the idea a lot, but my execution of the card was hurried to say the least.

Check it out.

2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop #8

This will be my last card for the bloghop as I have been called into work today.  I just received this background stamp from Picket Fence Studios and I wanted to use it.  I had bought their ghost stamp for Halloween that says “Let’s get sheet faced together”.  As it turned out, I never found the time to make the card and send it to the person I had in mind for it.  I didn’t want the same thing to happen with this stamp………………………………….so here it is………………………fresh from my mailbox.

The sentiment is from Verve Stamps, a company that I only knew about through them being a sponsor on the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  I bought a number of their stamps on a close out sale.

The main coffee cup is from a recent Hero Arts Kit.  I had hoped to make more cards from this multi-image kit, but maybe next blog.

Llama Llove

It is kind of funny how images of certain animals suddenly become popular.  They pop up on everything from clothes to home decor and , of course, cards.  Recently it has been llamas that have been in the trendy spotlight.

I saw this llama die from Spellbinders, and it was too cute to pass up.  I don’t usually like die sets without stamps, but this guy had all the details to look great on his own.  Paired with the Paprika paper collection from Photoplay, it was perfect.

When checking out the correct colours for llamas, I found this interesting warning sign.  Photo is by Lutty Moreina.
