Lawnscaping + Caffeine = Happiness♡

This post will remain pinned to the top of my blog through Sunday...click HERE for my Super Special Birthday Blog Hop Post.



Yay!  Did you see that Lawnscaping Challenges is having a Caffeine Blog Hop?!  

I like love caffeine!


The fun starts at the Lawnscaping Challenges' blog!  I'm thrilled to be a guestie!  Some of you might know that I ♡ Coffee :)



YOU could be a lucky winner...just leave a unique comment on all the blogs participating in the hop!

So, I couldn't wait to put together the FUN Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag!!!!!

cardstock:  strathmore watercolor  paper:  carta bella  stamps:  lawn fawn/love you a latte  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  lawn fawn/goodie bag lawn cut, wplus9 circle die

I stamped and colored a coffee cup from the Love You A Latte set....  After die cutting a circle on the front panel of the Goodie Bag, I backed it with the colored image.

Want to know what's inside the Goodie Bag?

A trio of mini coffee cards:


They measure a petite 2.75 x 4.0 inches and drop perfectly into the Goodie Bag!

Background stamping...I'm trying to incorporate it into my designs more because I just love the look.  The coffee mugs have been stamped with Fresh Ink Charcoal and I then layered a panel of vellum on top.  I finished off the card with a Scripty Thanks Veneer.

cardstock:  recollections/110/white, papertrey ink vellum  stamps:  lawn fawn/love you a latte  ink:  fresh ink/charcoal  other:  lawn fawn/scripty thanks veneer

This next one has multi-layers of goodness but I tried to keep the overall design clean & simple.  The sentiment is from the You Got Mail set.

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  paper:  simple stories/i am  stamps:  lawn fawn/love you a latte & you've got mail  ink:  memento/tuxedo, copic  other:  freckled fawn washi, studio calico heart veneer

I'm definitely been bitten by the coloring bug...this next card uses various distress markers for coloring that I followed up with a watercolor brush.  I love anything watercolored these days!

cardstock:  papertrey ink kraft,  strathmore watercolor  stamps:  lawn fawn/love you a  latte & gleeful gardens  ink:  ranger/archival/black, ranger distress markers  other:  freckled fawn washi, a jillian vance chalkboard backdrop die.

Whew!  You made it through my very long post!  What was going to be one card turned into a mini project!

So before you start hopping....lookie what I have for one lucky duck:


For those of you that have been following me for awhile know I have an appreciation for Starbucks.  How lucky that I live in Starbucksland and can easily walk to the oh-so-awesome Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room from work!!!!!!  This prize pack includes:

Starbucks Reserve Exclusive Field Notes Notebook
Starbucks Reserve Coffee Menu
Starbucks Reserve Letterpress postcard
Starbucks (loaded) gift card

I'll use random.org to draw a winner...leave me a comment with the name of your favorite lawn fawn stamp set!  Commenting to remain open for the blog prize until Saturday, June 27th @ 11:59 pm pacific.  Winner will be posted on Sunday, June 28th!

Have fun at the hop:
