Holiday Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop



This is a fun day for many stampers who are participating in a HUGE holiday coffee lovers' blog hop!  Not only will there be lots of prizes donated by many generous companies (last time I checked there were 27!), but many of the blog participants are offering blog candy as well!  So...take a break from the holiday rush...grab a cup of joe...and comment as you hop along!  A big THANK YOU to Amy Tsuruta for heading this up!  You will want to start the hop by visiting her blog hereShe will have the posting details available there which will include the linky tool so you can join in and hopefully be a winner!


Here is my coffee-themed card that I also created for the new Color Throwdown Challenge where Tammy is our hostess with these
fun colors: pink, red, teal green and aqua.  I used some of my fave stamping elements - watercoloring, die cut sentiment layering, texture paste with stencils and loopy twine!  I mixed some blues and greens from a Pelikan water color palette for the background then added light modeling paste using a stencil.  See the list of all the products I used at the bottom of this post.  Also, you will want to check out the other designers' creations on the Color Throwdown blog post.  There will also be details on how you could possibly be our next star stamper by joining in the challenge!

I am offering the following blog candy to one of you readers!  It will include a Keurig variety pack of coffees (not shown in photo) and some stamping goodies - 2 My Mind's Eye paper pads, embossing folder, wood veneer embellishments, jingle bells and burlap shapes!  The hop commenting for this prize will end Monday, December 15, at 2:59AM EST (this time was edited to match Amy's end time of 11:59 Pacific time).  Please remember to include your contact info with your comment if you don't have the reply settings in place and I will contact the winner by Saturday, December 20th.  Good luck!



Another perk (yes...pun intended - lol) to this hop is that everyone's hop projects will be pinned to a special Pinterest board!  Woohoo!  Let's get this party started!

 

STAMPS: Holiday Treats (Verve); Diagonal Stripes BG (MFT).
PAPER: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, White, 90 lb Watercolor CS.
INK: Melon Mambo, Black.
ACCESSORIES: Stitched square dies by Lil Inker Designs, Hand Lettered Thanks die by WPlus9, Dotted Flowers stencil by Dylusions, Light modeling paste by Liquitex, Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by MFT, Black twine.
