Winter 2016 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop


As I type this it is currently 14 degrees outside so coffee is a definite must in the mornings, or any warm beverage I would like any time of the day.


I'm so excited to be participating in the 2016 Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop for Lil' Inker Designs! They are one of the super sponsors for the hop and have released an awesome stamp set just in time for this hop! The Latte Love Stamp Set and Latte Love Dies are absolutely perfect!
I started my card by inking up a panel with various distress inks and then die cut it from the Cover Up Die: Snowflakes. I mounted the beautiful panel onto a white card base and then adhered a blue sentiment panel die cut from Stitched Mats: Long and Skinny Rectangles. I then cut a banner and stamped the sentiment from Latte Love Stamp Set


I stamped and die cut one of the mugs from Latte Love Stamp Set and added a white dimensional pen to the foam on the coffee. I also covered the plate and mug with shimmer. Finally, the whole card got a coat of sheer shimmer for some subtle sparkle!


And finally, Lil' Inker Designs is offering up a great deal during the hop. Check out the graphic above!
