Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

For this hop I have combined coffee and Christmas. I created two cards with Christmas Coffee and Ugly Sweater Background Builder Set. Confession: when I requested these stamps I did not realize how well they matched with each other. It was a happy surprise!

To create the base I stamped the background in different colors. I used a stamp platform on the mugs to for perfect alignment. I pop dotted them mugs on the card for dimension.

To finish off each card I added Nuvo Drops.

Now it is time to hop! Make sure you stop by all the blogs and leave them some love.

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Back to Basics: How to Create A Card

To create this card I went back to the basics with embossing and layering. The floral pattern on the coffee cub is just perfect for spring! I wanted to showcase it and used color pencils to make it pop. To see how I created this card please check out my video:
