2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happy Friday!  I had a little extra craft time yesterday and made another card for the oh-so-fun Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with the help of a little of that creative fuel called coffee!  It seems like I’ve been drinking more of it the last couple weeks as winter weather finally settles in around me!

Winter 2016 Blog Hop

I’ve been itching to use the fantastic Sip on This set from Clear & Simple Stamps!  I stamped the different sections of the cup in red and green and then added some sparkle with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.  The popped up circle is die cut using a Nestabilities circle die and stenciled with green ink using The Crafter’s Workshop Mini Microbial Stencil.  The coffee cup is popped up right next to the circle with a little thicker foam dot to make it slightly higher.  The fun sentiment is also from the Sip on This set and is stamped in black.  I added some simple gold star and clear circle sequins as embellishments.  I am in love with this stamp set and, now that I’ve finally inked it up, I can’t wait to brainstorm for more coffee themed designs!

Only a few more hours to link up to the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I’m ready to start hopping myself, so need to grab some decaf this evening and go check out some of the inspiration in the hop’s gallery!  Can’t wait!

Have a wonderful weekend!
