Final Card

This is my last project I did for the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. My card is a very CAS design but I still love it. I am posting this for International Tea Day a bit early as I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow and then later in the day we hope to get to our granddaughter's pre-school Christmas program. So time is limited tomorrow. Any time I do have at home will be used to check as many of the contributors designs for the hop and post some comments.


I named this card Christmas Tea. I got this cute little stamp set in a bargain section at Crafter's Companion named Verity Rose Cupcake Accessories.  The little coffee or tea pot had a floral design on it but I masked it off before stamping and then I hand drew in some holly to make it more festive looking before I colored it. I used my Copics.

I added a sentiment from Gina K. Designs which was in clear acrylic but to make it look in a rounded way I bent it on the stamping block. Then I stamped the small cupcakes. After coloring this design  I cut it using Gina K Designs Small Double Stitched Circle Die and also an outer layer with her Large Single Stitched Circle Die. My background paper is from Gina K. Designs too. I chose to color the images with the same colors as the pattern paper.

Well I am glad I could take part in the hop again this time around. I know I did not make so many projects but this is certainly a busy time of year so that I think was understandable. At any rate, I sure had fun. Thanks so much for your visits and comments and I hope you are enjoying all the festivities of the season.

God bless,
Verna

Card No. 7-A Valentine

I remembered that Valentine's Day falls in the Winter months so this time for the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop I made a simple valentine. With  a cute owl image holding a cup and a sentiment along with the owl dies from Gina K. Designs and some Gina K. Designs pattern paper I created a really cute little valentine. I used some circle dies from Gina Marie Designs.



I also added some of the pattern paper along the bottom of the inside of the card to tie the inside and outside together. I like to do that if at all possible. I think it is a great way to finish off a card.


I am very happy with this look and I might have to do several more for my valentine designs this year for the shut-ins. I think the bright colors are so cheery.

Well, I hope you are enjoying some of my coffee theme card designs. I know I love to see all the comments you leave when you visit.

God bless,

Coffee Hop Entry-Day 6

I made a card for this entry into the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and used a hot cocoa mug and deer die set I won one other year from doing the hop. The die set used is from Gina Marie Designs. I thought it quite appropriate as this is National Hot Cocoa Day.


I die cut the front panel with the Memory Box Cross Stitched Border Frame die and then added all to a red card stock base. The sentiment and the steam are from Gina K. Designs as is the pattern paper. The ribbon I used is from Crafter's Companion. I thought it matched the pattern paper fairly well. I used some small gems to decorate the deer's face. I think he looked like Rudolph to me. Hahaa!

I must say I am enjoying doing projects again for the hop. I hope you can join in too as there are a lot of prizes up for grabs. Thanks for the visit and for your wonderful comments. I'm off to have me some hot cocoa now.

God bless,
Verna

Day 5 Card For 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Wow! Day five already. What fun this is for me to do the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This card used images from Gina K. Designs.


The card stock, pattern paper and the ribbon are all from Gina K. Designs as is all the ink I used. She is your one stop place for lots of card making goodies. The red rhinestones on the cups are unknown.

I hope you got a chance to enter a project or two featuring hot cocoa, coffee or tea designs. I think I heard there were over 70 prizes up for grabs. Well, I have to go now but I thank you for stopping in and for all the comments.

God bless,
Verna

Day 4-2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Once again I am using the 3-D cup template from The Cutting Cafe for my fourth entry into the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I needed containers for giving some gifts to various delivery persons so I thought this was a great little way of doing that. This would be a great gift for a teacher or co-worker too. And, when empty they could store their pens inside it.


I placed cookies, hot cocoa packets and some Hershey's kisses inside a bag and then added it to the cup. The pattern paper used is very old and featured Christmas cookies on it. I do not know where it came from. But the tag die cut used was from Gina K. Designs. The sentiment was also from The Cutting Cafe 3-D Cup Template set. The card stock and the ribbon are from Gina K. Designs. The glitter paper for the tag is from Stampin' Up!

I hope you find time to join in. If not, I hope you are having a wonderful week. And thanks for the lovely comments.

God bless,
Verna

Day 3-2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Hop

In our family we have a few December birthdays that are just before and after Christmas and so I decided to not go with a Christmas or winter design for this card. Instead I made a card that would work for any season. But I did include cups in my design so I think it still qualifies. The stamps used are from Crafter Companion's Party Time stamp set. This is my third entry for the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop ongoing now.


As you can see I hand cut out the images and popped them up. I also used a Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Border die on the main panel and then cut out the black layer. Below is another view of the card.


I hope you can join in on the hop and show us a few of your own designs using either coffee, tea or hot cocoa images. Since this card is going to Japan I think it will be considered more of a stack of tea cups. Thanks for the visit and comments.

God bless,
Verna

2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Post No. 2

This time I made a card for the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop using a stamp set from Art Impressions and a Christmas tree die set from Kat Scrappiness. Along with some varied pattern papers and some sponging I made a cute little scene. I hope you like it too!


This was so much fun to make and I really love the way it looks. I hope you can join in on the fun at the hop too. And, there are awesome prizes. Thanks for visiting!

God bless,
