Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Have you heard?  It's time for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
Here's the first of hopefully several cards I'm going to make before the Dec 7th deadline!
I used stamps and stencils from Wendy Vecchi's Mug Art set.  I stamped the mug in black and then stenciled the stripes using Wendy Vecchi Fern Green Blendable Dye Ink, the dots and handle in Wendy Vecchi Poppy ink and the 'coffee or cocoa' in Distress Brushed Corduroy.  I used Pierced Feature Frame Oval die from PTI - raising the outside piece on foam dots.   The papers are Paper Stash/Christmas from Tim Holtz/Idea-ology.  I fussy cut the mug and layered on the inside oval using foam dots.  I stamped the sentiment on a white strip and adhered it to the mug and outside frame.
On the inside of my card I adhered a piece of the same red snowflake patterned paper and then stamped a white panel with a stamp from Gift Card It by Waltzingmouse (retired) adhering it on 3 sides so I could slip in a gift card for the receiver!
You really need to check out all the sponsors of this wonderful Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop  - so many prizes to be won by randomly chosen entries!  Thank you Amy for, once again, organizing all this for us!   You'll find all the details here!

Coffee Lovers Spring and Summer Blog Hop - Now You Get a Discount

Another card for the Coffee Lovers Spring and Summer Blog Hop.  The end of the hop is looming near - Friday 6/1 at 6 pm Pacific time - so I'm trying to get at least one more card in for a chance at all those prizes!!
Today's card is a birthday card for someone approaching my age or older - which a lot of my friends are!  We're finding more and more discounts offered to us 'Senior Citizens'!  One of the many perks of reaching maturity!
I had this cute wooden coffee cup from Hobby Lobby.  I colored it with yellow and purple watered Distress inks (but it really just made brown on the natural wood!).  I filled the heart opening  on the cover with Autumn Red Crystal Nuvo Drops and the openings on the cup area with Golden Sunset Glitter Novo Drops.  The sentiment is from Literary Caffeine-ations from StampLorations.  The die cut frame is from the Mix and Mat Berry Boughs die set from PTI.  I watercolor washed the background with green and blue watercolor paints.  Inside I stamped "Happy Birthday" and a little coffee cup stamp.

The rules?
When: Friday, September 15 – Friday, September 22 
THEME: FALL
USE: coffee, tea, or cocoa images
Here's my fall card:
I water colored tissue paper by laying it in 3 Distress inks I had rubbed on my craft mat and spritzed with water. After the tissue paper had dried I glued it to a panel of white card and let that dry.  Then I rubbed Versamark over the creases on the tissue and gold embossed the panel (brushing off any gold powder that got in the spaces)  - Loll Thompson has a wonderful YouTube video on this technique here.  I die cut the dotted frame and white embossed the sentiment and cup on a strip of black card.

I chose my colors from this week's Just Us Girls challenge
I used Ranger Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Seedless Preserves and Carved Pumpkin.

I made a floating image window on my card using the Rectangle Peek a Boo die from MFT.  I added a piece of tulle between the layers of DP and card base and adhered my coffee grinder die cut with foam dots over the tulle.

I fussy cut another Peek a Boo Frame out of Dark Chocolate card and layered it over the opening with foam dots.  The leaf is die cut out of a piece of thin wood.  The sentiment is from a coffee set  and the grinder is from a coffee die set - both sold on Ali Express.
