Winter Coffee anyone?

Good morning from a very snowy Michigan - yes its finally arrived with a vengeance. It snowed all day yesterday and is still coming down!

Today is the start of the famous Winter Coffee Blog Hop  over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers - Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps and Riley and Company are both sponsors so I am joining in with a cards I have made using both company's stamps.

I have to admit that I hate the taste and smell of coffee but I do love some of the cute coffee stamps that are out there, including this one from Prickley Pear:


As the theme of the blog bop is winter I have added snow flakes!
I masked to cup off the Coffee Stamp and stamped that and the Snowflake Corner with Versamark. I then added gold tinsel embossing powder and heated it. Next I masked off the flourish on the stamp and again using Versamark stamped the cup section. I used black tinsel embossing powder on this. I matted a card blank with gold and black card and added my image layer to this. A few dots of crystal drops just finished the design.



I stamped it using Espresso colored ink (so fitting don't you think!) I then matted my card with gold and dark brown card. I rounded the corners and added my image layer to my card base.  I then die-cut a coffee set and arranged this on my card. A very simple card but it gets the point of the sentiment across!

You too can join in the coffee blog hop by making up a card with either a coffee, tea or cocoa theme and linking it to the blog. If you are going to join in why not use the Riley and Company or Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps stamps - they have plenty of Coffee related ones to choose from. Whether you like Snark or serious they have the lot!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you check out the links above for more inspiration

Love the elegance the embossing gives your first card. That second card with that sentiment is so humorous.
