National Coffee Day!!!

CoffeeLoversBloghopLogo-1024x682Hello everyone! I’m here today joining our friend Chaitali from Cuts, Crops and Creativity and her Coffee themed Blog Hop today.

We are celebrating National Coffee Day!!!  Prior to this hop, I had no clue there was an actual day for coffee.  How cute!!

Here is my card for today’s hop:

National Coffee Day

To create my card I used Sweet Stamp Shop Coffee Town Stamp Set.

Who doesn’t like a nice coffee house to spend some times with friends.  Here in NY, we have so many of those places in and around the city.

I have to admit I’m not a coffee drinker.  I am a (tea) lover.  Please do not yell at me but I just am.  So, to really get in the mood, I asked my mom, who loves her coffee a couple of questions about her obsession with her coffee mug in the morning.

1. When did you start drinking coffee?

I started drinking coffee a couple of years ago.  I’m not sure why it started but once I tried it I was hooked.

2. What is favorite brand?

My favorite brand, that is hard.  I really like McDonald’s coffee.  They really know how to make it right.  If I have to make it myself I like Starbucks Colombia Medium coffee.

3. What is the most amazing coffee that you had? Remember where and when?

LOL, I was at a dinner party with some friends in Jamaica, WI and we were served Blue Mountain coffee and it was to die for. That was about two years ago, which was the last time I was there.

4. If I don’t drink my needed coffee, I will…?

If I don’t drink my needed coffee, I will have a headache early in the morning.

Thanks mom, for accommodating me today.

So today’s blog hop comes with a bunch of giveaways today.  You don’t want to miss out on this fun event.  Check out all of the hop sponsors and prize packages.

Coffee, Help Me…

Hello everyone!! Happy Fall!!  Can you believe the summer is official over.  That went by super fast.  Before you know it, we are celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Time isn’t waiting for anyone.

Today I’m here with a cute card using Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps!!  The September release was packed with a bunch of great stamp sets.  Since its Monday morning I wanted to use the Coffee Town Stamp set.  The majority of my coworkers need their coffee before they can speak to anyone so I decided to make a card inspired by them.

Take a look at my card:

Coffee Cup

Staying with my Clean and Simple theme, I wanted to make sure there was enough white space as possible.  The card is a simple one layer card that is very easy to reproduce.

1. I stamped the coffee cups image from Sweet Stamp Coffee Town 6 times using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, to stretch the width of the card.

2. I used my Copic Markers E33 and E35 to color the base of the cup.

3. Then I used Copic colors R20, R24, YR04, YR07, Y02, Y06,G02, G07, B02 and B05 to color the cup holder.

4. I colored the word COFFEE with the same colors as the cup base. I added some Wink of Stella to the cup holders and the word COFFEE.  Add Stampin’ Up! Early Expresso Bakers Twine, rounded the corners and then I was done.

Clean and Simple: Lots of white space + Free of clutter + Not complicated to create, Simple!

So are you one of those individuals that need to have your coffee before you could start your workday?  If so let me know! I would love to hear from you. I’m a tea girl.
