2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Final Day: Latte Love trio




I can't believe it...we're on the final day of the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop!  I'm blogging live in between cards.  I hope to crank out 3 more but we'll see!

Did you see that Lil' Inker Designs released a new coffee set named, Latte Love?


Keeping things real here.  I finished off my cards, although I wasn't so sure about the Ho Ho Ho one.  It bothered me that the H didn't stamp quite right on the bottom one.  I thought, it's okay...but gah, I couldn't stand it so here's the revised version:


I used my trusty sharpie pen and filled it in, much beh-tah.  The sentiments are by Mama Elephant, Mini Messages.  The background is MFT, Lined Up Dots.  You can't really tell, but I used Delicata Gold and the sheen is awesome.


Originally I was going to use all three squares in a design but it just wasn't happening for me.  The Reverse Confetti Cardstock was die cut with Memory Box Pinpoint Squares:

RC Aqua  •  Iced Aqua  •  Tangerine


 All the coloring was done with Zig Clean Color Markers.

I was inspired by the latest Curtain Call:


I worked with the general color palette and the gold.  The background, Lined Up Dots made me feel like it gave it the retro vibe.

Big Shout out to Lil' Inker Designs for being a Super Sponsor!!


Happy Friday!  I hope to tackle my Holiday cards someday soon💚

  7. Lovely set! Dint you have a MISTI? Or the new WeRMemoryKeepers equivalent? I love not having to fill in afterward - or worse... trying to re-stamp and ruining it.

  8. UGH!! I keep seeing this set on the hop and now I just feel as if I need it. Love the Ho Ho Ho cup card the best, no clue why but that saying has been and probably will always be my fave Christmas saying. Hard not to smile when you hear it, right?
