Coffee-You Have My Undying Love--Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop & FMS205

September 25, 2015

Today is the DAY!  It's time for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!

I am so excited to be a part of this event!  A HUGE THANK YOU to Amy Tsuruta for ALL she does to make this event happen!  WOW!  She is AMAZING!




I am using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches  for my card.  I love this sketch and it was perfect to showcase my image.  I am also entering this card is the Sweet Stampin' Challenge.  They require cards with a non white card base. 


My card was created for my sweet, thoughtful husband.  Since I retired from teaching, he brings my coffee to me in bed EVERY morning!!!  Isn't that the BEST?!?   I wanted my card to reflect my UNDYING love for coffee, too!  Her huge coffee cup is personalized with a pumpkin for Fall.  



I am using one of my favorite SugarPea Designs-Undying Love stamp sets for my card.  I stamped the Zombie girl image on Neenah white card stock and colored her with Copic Markers.  

              Copic Markers Used:    YR04, YR07, YR18, YR24
                                                N1, N3, N5

My base card is Tangerine Tango.  The next layer is Basic Black.  I embossed it with a latte/ coffee folder from Sizzix.  I used Houndstooth and Scaringbone  (retired Stampin' Up! Paper) for all the patterns on my card.  I loved this paper pack and hoarded some of it for special cards.  The banner was cut using Stampin' Up! banner dies and the little one was made using the banner punch.  I stamped a black coffee cup from Taylored Expressions--Hug in a Mug in black Versa Fine and heat embossed it with clear  embossing powder.  I fussy cut it and then stamped a little pumpkin from the Winnie and Walter--Moonlight Stamp Set and colored is orange with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut it and adhered it to my coffee cup. 



The Deco Framelit from Stampin' Up! was used to cut the Very Vanilla shape. The sentiment is from the stamp set SugarPea Designs-Undying Love.   I used black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Wink of Stella was added on the zombie and the cup for shine.  A few black enamel dots were added for fun! 


Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I love to hear from you so, please leave a comment if you can.  

All items are listed below, but if you have a question on my card, please contact me at:  Claire.

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

Hugs!
Claire
