2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Two: Warm Wishes

Have you been enjoying all the inspiration from the hop?!  I know that I am!  I decided to do a different type of project this time around:

It was actually perfect timing because I went to my Crafty Group Holiday Gathering this afternoon and we do a gift exchange!  I just had this conversation with my friend Tonya.  I generally put my gift in a gift bag and call it good.  This time I used the Tag Infinity Dies and made a double tag.

The bottom tag was cut with Kraft Layering Paper and then I used a birch tree embossing folder that I had in my stash.  I topped it off with another tag cut from Kelly's Designer Paper.  I layered it with a kraft doily and the Coffee Cup Tag Frame Cuts that I stamped the Holiday Florals Bold Prints in Red Royal Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.

Yup, I love the Color Layering Cardinal set!  I stamped it out using my Mini Misti on Snow Layering Paper.  

I use the Circle Infinity Dies to cut the perfect size for the Coffee Cup.  The sentiment is from the Color Layering Cardinal set.  I used white embossing powder on Midnight Mixed Layering Paper.

Twelve girls...lots of laughing, crafting and eating.  It really doesn't get much better than that, does it?!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll be back again tomorrow!

2016 winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Two: Good Cheer

We're on Day two of the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop!  Have you linked up?!  There are so many wonderful sponsors, 61 of them! 

Here's one of two card that I'll be posting for today:

Good Cheer headed your way...I love that sentiment!  It's from the Reverse Confetti Bearing Gifts set.  The coffee cup is from the Caffeinated Cups set.  The snowflakes, which have been stamped in neon pink on the Tangerine cardstock coffee sleeve, are from  Jolly Holiday

I used the Lacy Scallop Frame in Navy and finished it off with washi.  All the pattern paper is from the Warm Heart 6x6 paper pad.

Reverse Confetti is one of the many Super Sponsors for the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop!

My card was inspired by the Color Throwdown!

Today is the day!  It is the start of the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop!  Link up a newly created winter/holiday themed project that uses a coffee/tea or cocoa theme for a chance to win!

I recently picked up a bunch of new coffee stamps in the last month or so.  Decisions decisions of which to use first.  I decided to go with the new Unity Stamps Joy to Go set:

I made a trio of cards!  The paper is all from the Basic Grey Juniper Berry pad, which I hoard!  I used the same design but switched up the colors a bit for variety.  This is my version of mass production.

No surprises but this one is my favorite:

I know, I's green + pink 💚💖

Here's a traditional one, from the red poinsettia to the kraft coffee sleeve.
