Hello everyone!!  I’m so excited to be apart of this fun Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop again!!

I love this hop because I love Mugs!!  Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate Lovers all need great mugs to enjoy their morning, afternoon and evening hot beverage.

I’m here today representing Top Dog Dies, who is a Super Sponsor.  They recently released a Mini Coffee Die Set that is to die for.

Lets take a look at my card that I created for this hop:

Awesome Coffee

For those of you who follow me know that I have this new found love of shaker cards.  I couldn’t help myself to create one for this hop!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50).

2 I stamped My Favorite Things BG Pinstripe Background using Simon Says Stamp Khaki Stamp pad unto the card base.

3. I cut my card panel out of  Neenah Solar White cardstock to a size smaller then the card base.

4. I centered the largest Simon Says Stamp Circle Stitch Die in the middle of the white card panel and die cut it out.

5. I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to create my shaker pocket.

(To see how I did that check out this post.)

6.I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Metallic Bronze to the shaker pocket and then I used the Fuse Tool to seal it close.

7. I attached the shaker pocket to the back of the card panel with tape.

8. I added foam adhesive to the card panel to pop it off of the card base.

9. I die cut my coffee cup, lid, wrapper and heart.

10. I put the coffee cup together and adhered it to the front of the shaker circle.

11. I stamped a sentiment using Lil inker designs Seriously Awesome Stamp on the front of my card panel.

13. I added some of the same sequin to the front of the card.

That’s my card!!  So what do you think? I would love to here from you!

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.

Before I go, I wanted to also share my Mug swap that I’m sending off to my surprise receiver!

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.

Coffee Cup with Copics

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.

Before I go I have such great news for you.  The Sweet Stamp Shop is about to release their new On Cherry Street Kit called Day to Day!

Day To Day Kit

This kit debuts on September 25, 2014!!  Be sure to grab your kit, that stamp set and papers are so cute!!
