I've never been more grateful to have a hobby I love that takes my mind off world problems--at least for awhile.
I don't always make a card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops. The number of entries is mind blowing & some people make a bunch of cards. However, THIS recent card by my friend, Lisa, reminded me that I could use the PRS Coffee Love stamp set. An idea actually came to mind & you never know when Mr Random will find you! Here's my entry for Fall Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
I white embossed the cup on red cardstock & trimmed it out. I also trimmed a slightly larger mat after I added the white heart sticker. The SSS Christmas Foliage branches & the W&W blooms are brushed with a shimmer pen. My sweet friend, Rosemary, loaned me the foliage dies & I still have a bunch more die cuts ready to use. The white embossed sentiment is W&W. I've been wanting to do a tone on tone background with die cuts & I really love the look with the PTI Bold Borders: Yuletide. I used the Richard Garay Lumberjack embossing folder on the white panel & mounted the cup with foam tape. I'm also entering RRCB (Cup from 2018), SSS Flickr & We Love Chocolate Baroque.
Also adding my card to Christmas Kickstart & Let's Squash It since Jo said the pine branch embossing folder counts as Christmas. It's hard to see in the photo, but that white embossed rectangle behind the cup makes a big difference in person.
25 Days of Christmas Tags entry based on Ardyth's Day 6 tag.
My friend, Vikki, die cut a bunch of PTI tags & gave them to me back when we could actually meet in person for lunch. I pulled out Tag Sale #4 & die cut TSM holly & berries from TE & MFT felt.
I found just the right sentiment in a very old Penny Black stamp set. I used to buy ribbon by the yard when I had a LSS, so I could have some of a lot of different rolls. This black ribbon has a little sparkle which makes it perfect for holiday projects. I'm getting close to the end, so I'll have to look for some more.
