Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
September 23-September 30
Theme: Fall Coffee, Tea, or cocoa project
National Coffee Day: September 29
I'm excited to join the Coffee Loving Design Team in welcoming you to the Fall Coffee Lovers Hop! I'm sure this hop will break records for participation and for awesomeness...just as in hops of the past! Just you wait, will we hit over 800 link-ups???
Let's take a peek at my first fun creation for the hop. I'm sure you'll GASP because I created something CAS!!! Yeah, you read that right! I about patted myself on the back for this one! I have very little restraint when it comes to cardmaking and I love adding layer upon layer of yummy goodness to my cards but something weird came over me. Maybe it's my cold, or my aching back...I don't know...all I know is I was victorious in creating the elusive CAS card! Snaps for me!!!
So wanna see what I'm talking about? Hold on to your seat...Don't faint!
So to create this fabulous, once in a lifetime CAS card, I washed a bit of Ranger Walnut Stain ink onto some watercolor paper, splattered some Ranger Peeled Paint ink and some Walnut Stain ink onto the dry watercolored paper, then splattered a tiny bit of Orange Rave Silk onto that. I selected the fun mug image and sentiments from one of our Super Sponsors: "Coffee is my Liquid Therapy" by A Creative Journey with Melissa. I stamped the sentiment words all over the mug using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Hazelnut Blend ink and the heart was stamped with Cranberry Bliss ink. I stamped the "Hello Friend" sentiment onto a hand doodled thought bubble. The images were cut out and some twine was added. The little wooden heart button was the finishing touch!
Just look at that yummy splatter! I just LURRRVE it!!! Perfect fall colors, dontcha think?!Olive Green Card Base.
