National Coffee Day...Joy Clair and Coffee Loving Cardmakers...



BOO!  Hello there Joy Clair and Coffee Loving crafters!  If you've arrived here from Erin's blog, you're following the candy wrappers just fine!  If not, join the fun and make a full circle starting here!  I'm doing double duty in this post to share a fun "Halloweenie" Coffee card as well as share that CLC Super Sponsor Joy Clair is contributing a fabulous prize to one lucky commenter in this POST!!!!  As this hop is a bit different than previous hops, it's FULL of prizes from generous Super Sponsors!  Just make sure to check out as many posts as you can in this hop because we have secretly hidden some prizes!  I'm thinking of it as a little TRICK-OR-TREAT adventure.  HEE HEE...

So... Just make sure to hop along with us.  Lots of Super Sponsors will be sharing NEW and SHINY stamp sets, prizes and goodies along the way.
To create my "Halloweenie" card, I started out by stamping the Joy Clair Coffee Talk mug onto some fun and bright magenta cardstock, then went to town coloring it with Copic markers and colored pencils.  After it was colored up nice and pretty, I cut it out and set it aside.  I then started working on the background.  I just added some coordinating colors from my colored pencil stash and then spritzed the paper with some Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer FROST Spray.  After that, I machine stitched some "steam" lines and added some embellishing touches.
I mounted this panel onto a green card base that I had prepared with a few corner pieces of that magenta cardstock.  F.U.N.  Love how this card turned out and I'm excited to be featuring this fun set from Joy Clair.  Joy Clair has graciously offered a $25.00 Gift Card to their shop and I know that you'll find a few goodies to enjoy.  Good Luck!
