Having a need latte kinda day?

Well, this is card #10 for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I'm not on target for the number that I had in mind, but I'm not complaining.  

cardstock:  recollections/110/white, stampin' up gumball green/chocolate chip  stamps:  your next stamp hammie - coffee and tea/perk up ink:  ranger archival black, kuretake gansai tambi  other:  imaginisce sticker

Chuckling because I had already loaded up a blog post and realized my original card was missing something...yes, a fall themed element.  BAM, sticker to the rescue!  My friend Laurel gave me a paper pad, stickers and buttons from the Imaginisce Give Thanks Collection....insta-fall!

Check out the adorable stamps by Your Next Stamp:

Hammie - Coffee and Tea

In case you didn't know, Karen of Your Next Stamp actually has a bunch of coffee goodies in her shop!

We've been having loads of fun with the Fall hop, hope that you're playing along!

Reverse Confetti SFYTT: Hello Tall, Dark & Fantastic

post 2 of 2 here for Sprinkled with Love

Hello  Tall, Dark & Fantastic!  <--- that totally cracks me up!

cardstock:  recollections/110/white, stampin' up gumball green/basic black  paper:  pebbles harveststamps: reverse confetti caffeinated cups/for the love of latte  ink:  fresh ink/black tea/chocolate  other:  reverse confetti caffeinated cups/hello confetti cuts & fall fun quick card panels, papertrey ink vellum

I had so much fun putting together this card!  I'm lovin' the new  Reverse Confetti Caffeinated Cups and For the Love of Latte!  I combined it with the Hello Confetti Cuts.  Adding a panel of vellum makes it easy to include a sentiment over a patterned Quick Card Panel!

Darin starts a new job on Monday so I'm going to tuck this way in his work bag :)

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Two: Sprinkled with love

post 1 of 2 for HERE for Reverse Confetti's SFYTT

We're on Day Two of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  As you might suspect, I have SEVERAL coffee sets, here is one by Waltzingmouse Stamps, We Go Together:

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  paper:  pebbles harvest  stamps:  waltzingmouse stamps/we go together  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  spellbinders small circles die

I colored the images with copics and managed to paper piece that coffee sleeve even though a smidge of it has been masked off (high fives!). 

How cute is the We Go Together set?!  Love all the different sentiment combos!

 I was inspired by the current Fusion (sketch).

I hope that you've been enjoying the hop!  I'm hoping to have woken up bright and early so I can get some crafty time in before a group of crafty girls come over!

September Papertrey Ink Blog Hop: Enjoy your day!

It's the 25th of the month and I'm hopping along over at Papertrey Ink!  I couldn't resist the inspiration and chalkboard technique theme!

I gladly changed up the theme to include toasting coffee cups!


cardstock:  stampin' up basic black  paper:  basic grey, pebbles harvest  stamps:  papertrey ink heart-2-heart/wet pain  ink:  stampin' up white embossing powder, wplus9 white ink  other:  doodlebug blooms

I incorporated the chalkboard theme and used the Wet Paint stamp set.  The coffee cups are from the Heart-2-Heart set.  I paper pieced the coffee sleeves using Pebbles' Harvest.  I decided to add the little blooms for texture and to bring out pops of orange.

I can't wait to hop around for inspiration!
