I { Heart } Coffee

As September comes to an end, I will celebrate our friendship theme again - this time  with a Coffee card. Anyone who knows me will tell you how much I enjoy my coffee.. But I think that part of the reason that I like coffee so much is that I very often share my coffee time with friends. It is often in person but I also have many wonderful "conversations" with online friends as I sit in my studio sipping my cup of Joe..

I have a group of online friends in a Facebook Group called Coffee Loving Papercrafters. There are over 1000 members in the group. We share our love of all things coffee -- cards, stamps, dies, flavored coffee etc. Several times a year, there is a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop where we can link up our Coffee, Tea or Cocoa projects.This year the Hop coincides with my assigned post for Susan so what did you think my idea for this post would be ??? Coffee, of course !! But wait -- Susan doesn't have a coffee image !! Well, I wasn't going to let that small detail stop me...

I stamped the ornament from an { Artful } Ornament  with Colorbox Color Pop ink in Mystery and then traced a coffee sleeve on the stamped image and cut it out. It was colored with Distress Markers.. The coffee cup and lid are from the Sizzix "Fresh Brewed" Bigz Die. A piece of colorful cardboard created the coffee lid.. Small banners were punched out of Color Burst paper and curled a bit using a bone folder and to add another pop of color and some texture, a piece of We R Memory Keepers Bakers twine was wrapped around the top of the card.. I used my DYMO Pink Caption maker to create the sentiment at the bottom of the card..



I'd love for you to take the time to leave a comment and also to follow this blog...  I am hoping that sometime soon Susan K. Weckesser Inc. will create a coffee/tea themed stamp set and then I will be ready for the next Coffee Lovers Blog Hop !! Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects over on the Coffee Loving Papercrafters website and get some amazing inspiration !!




Thank you for visiting { My Sweet Earth }.
