Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog hop!

This blog hop is organised by Amy Tsuruta and team. Being a coffee lover, I decide to participate in the hop especially for the holiday season. First, here is my card for the hop.

Merry Christmas card

All I did was to collect all the stamp sets with coffee cup from my stash. I did that basically to plan on a set I wanted to use to make the card. Then I wanted to use all the coffee cups on my card. Lol! At least a few of them if not all :) So that is how this card came about. I started with white heat embossing the sentiment. I simply white heat embossed the coffee cups on fog cardstock. The coffee cups were from stamp sets from Paper Smooches, Clearly Besotted, Lil' INkers and Jane Doodle. Then white heat embossed the snow flakes from a Clearly Besotted stamp set. I then coloured the coffee cups with distress markers. I instantly loved how it looked - modern and trendy :) I then trimmed the panel and mounted on the white card base. No card of mine is complete without Pretty Pink Posh sequins :)
