Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Six - Part Two

The Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is still going strong!  You can link up until Friday, September 22nd at 11:55 pm.  We have a record to break, it is from our Spring Hop = 1,178.  The Summer Hop we hit 1, close.  It's all good though, everyone is having so much fun which makes me a happy crafter.

So for my post #2 for the day I have a giftie to share:

Super Sponsor Lawn Fawn Prize- $25 Lawn Fawn Gift Card

EEP!!!!  I'm so pleased with how this turned out!  All my products are by Super Sponsor Lawn Fawn!  I started off with the Goodie Bag.  I love the size of it and it is super easy to put together!  I used a 12 x 12 sheet of Perfectly Plaid Fall.  I combined the Large Wreath Lawn Cuts + the Pumpkin Spice stamp set.

Do you spy the Stitched Leaves?  I upcycled a coffee cup sleeve...isn't it a beautiful shade of kraft?  I was a total happy camper when I realized those Mini M&M tubes fit perfectly into the Goodie Bag!

I'm spending the day with my Momma. I always give her those M&M's so that she can stash them all over the place in case she gets woogie from her diabetes.  The timing was perfect when I decided to make it this morning!

Just a reminder to link up your projects by 3 pm pacific today to be eligible for the first of two FLASH prize parties.  Are you part of our Coffee Loving Papercrafters FB group?  The party will happen over there sometime late after/early evening.  If you're a winner and aren't on FB, you will receive an email notification.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Six

Hello, late start this morning...well, on my blog.  I didn't end up commenting on any of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop cards last night so I did a massive catch up this morning, almost 3 hours.  I followed that up by whipping up a couple cards and a gift project.  Have you seen the gorgeous entries for the Fall Hop?!  Oh my, if you haven't you really need to check it out HERE.

In an attempt to share as many projects with Super Sponsor products, here's one that combines:

Can you spot them?

That tea cup is by Krumspring Stamps - Coffee is Love.  If you haven't read their announcement, it's HERE.  Although I'm sad that Maria has closed her shop, I'm so happy about her new adventure.  We're so lucky to be able to find Krumspring Stamps at other retailers including Super Sponsor Butterfly Reflections Ink.  I believe that Vanessa of BRI is the only retailer that carries that particular Coffee Is Love set and she only has 6 in stock so get it when you can!

Super Sponsor Butterfly Reflections Ink Prize - $25 Store Gift Certificate

The sentiment is from the Altenew - Vintage Tea set:

Super Sponsor Altenew Prize - $30 Store Gift Certificate

I fussy cut the Unity Stamp Co. Cup of Tea image:

Super Sponsor Unity Stamp Co Prize - Coffee/Tea Themed Prize Package that includes 9 Unity stamps, value approx $150

That's it for me this morning...I'll be back around noon with another project!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Five - Part Two

Welcome back, I have another card for today and I'm linking up to the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  This project features Super Sponsor Hero Arts!

I made a galaxy background with various Distress Oxide inks.  I topped it off with white splatters from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi set.  Don't you LOVE the Gothic Vines Fancy Die with Frame?!  The details are simply amazing.  

The Coffee Cup Tags Frame cuts have been cut with Floral Mix Layering Papers.  The Please Send Coffee sentiment is from Kelly's Coffee and Donuts.

Big shout out to Super Sponsor Hero Arts!!  I look forward to hopping around tonight!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Five

We're up to Day Five of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Today I'm featuring two companies, they are both returning Super Sponsors:

I used the a jillian vance design Grandpa's Glass:  Cup of Love die with my embossing pads.  I love the look when I do this technique.  The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set, Perk Up.  

Isn't the ribbon beautiful?  It's DL.ART's Pumpkin Spice that is sold in a set with the very pretty Latte ribbon.  I topped off the ribbon with one of DL.ART's Newest product, Coffee Themed 1" Flair.  Oh, these are FABulous!

I can't wait to hop around and soak up all that FUN Inspiration!!!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Four - Part Two

Hello, I'm back again with another project for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  This card features returning Super Sponsor Reverse Confetti!

So much Reverse Confetti goodness on this, let's start from the bottom and work our way up.  The patterned paper panel is from the Every Little Bit 6x6 paper pad.  The Tall Stripe Panel has been cut with Sunshine cardstock.  The Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts was cut with Stormy cardstock.

 Caffeinated Cups was stamped in Dark Roast.  I die cut the sleeve from felt that I had in my stash.  The sweet acorn from Happy Harvest was stamped in Lime Green.  Obviously I didn't clean off my stamp the last time I used it but I like the ombre' effect it has.  The acorn topper is Reverse Confetti packing paper...I always keep that stuff.   The sentiment is from A Friend Like You and has been stamped with Dark Roast.

My card was inspired by 

Fusion Card Challenge

I used the sketch and went a caffeinated route!  

Looking forward to hopping along with the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog hop!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Four

Hello and Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?!  Mine was busy and I was hoping to get more crafting done on Sunday but at least I was able to get to some of my Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop projects.

I'm happily on the SugarPea Designs team and unfortunately they weren't able to be Super Sponsors this time around.  Hurricane Irma passed over SPD HQ, we're so grateful that Wendy and her family are safe and sustained minimal damage.  

Here's a project that features SugarPea Designs and Latina Crafter:

I used SugarPea Designs The Perfect Blend.  I stamped out the background with the coffee tree and branch.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in white on a vellum panel that was cut with the SugarCuts Zig Zag Stitched Circles.

I added the Latina Crafter Cafe III Wood Veneers to my design.  Aren't they so much fun?!

My card was inspired by the current SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge:

Along with the Color Throwdown:

A Big Shout Out to the Latina Crafter for being a returning Super Sponsor!!!

How's your weekend going?!  Today is commenting and crafting day for me.  We're still going strong on the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  There is so much wonderful inspiration, it's awesome. 

We're so excited to announce one of our newest Super Sponsors...Echo Park Paper!  The Coffee Loving Cardmaker's team is all playing with their But First Coffee stamp set which is available at Super Sponsor Butterfly Reflections Ink store!

I stamped those fabulous Echo Park Paper to go cups on Super Sponsor Reverse Confetti Stone cardstock with Super Sponsor Hero Arts Navy Shadow Ink.  I fussy cut them and then heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts copper embossing powder on a vellum belly band.

Any diehard Basic Grey fans out there?  If you're out there reading this post then you can appreciate my use of their Persimmon collection.

Isn't the But First Coffee stamp set awesome?!  I just LOVE all the sentiments and that perfect to-go cup!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Three!

We're up to Day Three of the Fall Hop and it is still going strong!  I love reading about how everyone is having so much fun...I Love that they Love everything that goes into the hops...really a labor of love.  

So I'm back with another Precious Remembrance Happy Mail + Coffee Love set.  See mine from yesterday for the Shop Hop + Giveaway.  Today's card has a definite Autumn feel...I was looking for inspiration so I went to the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Designer Picks...can you guess which card inspired me??!

I used the Pebbles Inc Midnight Haunting 6x6 Paper Pad.  Do you spy the wood leaf veneer?  That was from Stampin' Up and sadly I believe they've been retired.  

A Big Shout Out to Precious Remembrance for being a returning Super Sponsor!!!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day One - Part 2

So I've been having fun with creating projects for the Fall Hop, how about you?!  I probably don't have to tell you that I have products from most of the Super Sponsors because I love my coffee!  In this post I'll be featuring two Super Sponsors:

I threw in a bit of upcycling too.  The to-go cup is Lil' Inker Designs Cozy Coffee Die Set.  The sentiments are all from Stampin Funn.  To get a sense of the size, the card bases are American Crafts Mint Ombre Mini Cards that are 3x3.

These will be great to have in my stash...a girl can never have too many Coffee themed cards on hand.

Big shout out to Lil' Inker Designs and Stampin Funn for being Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Super Sponsors!!!!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day One

Hello Hello!  The Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is happening NOW!  If you're new to the hop, it's a quarterly event that brings 1,000+ projects filled with coffee, tea and/or cocoa.  How awesome is that?!  We have tons of Super Sponsors too!  Want to play?  Link up a newly created project that is FALL themed and includes some sort of coffee, tea and/or cocoa.

Day one is always filled with decisions, what set to use..I have so many coffee sets, it's crazy.  Here's how I was inspired for today:

That is so me...capris, flats, a grey tee and a green cardigan.  We have been experiencing another long warm summer and dare I say that it is slowly moving into fall so that I can drag out all my long sleeve cardis?!

We are so excited to have Ellen Hutson LLC as a new Super Sponsor for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops!  I combined the following sets:

Essentials by Ellen - Oh Frappe by Julie Ebersole
Essentials by Ellen - Bear Ware by Julie Ebersole

The sentiment is a combo from Crafty Ladies Say + Oh Frappe.  That to-go cup is a flower pot from the Bear Ware set.  It could easily pass for a container of Halo Ice Cream too LOL.

A big shout out to Ellen Hutson LLC for being a Super Sponsor!

I can't wait to hop around and be thoroughly inspired by everyone's awesome projects!
