Hello everyone! I FINALLY got a chance to participate in one of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hops - these hops are HUGE and have a ton of sponsors and people participating in them!
You can check out all the info HERE <------click!
So here's the card I made:
I had to pull out the Echo Park Fall Is In the Air 6x6 pack again - I am REALLY feeling all things fall (I even went way out of my way today to redeem my star reward and get a free Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks (so that cancelled the "going out of my way" part right?) which I THOROUGHLY enjoyed) and want to make all the fall-themed cards possible lately. Combining fall colours and coffee-themed anything just makes me happy :).
I combined said papers with the Create A Smile Coffee First stamp set - such a cute set and I adore the font of the word coffee. Embossing it with gold embossing powder made it even more fabulous IMO.
I used Copics to color in the mugs and did a bunch of paper piecing on them which I haven't done in forever. Paper piecing used to really be my "thing" back in the day. Now that I did it here who knows maybe y'all will see it more frequently from me again! ;)
I LOVE that little chipboard embellishment - I think I said it was wood in the video - but it's not. It's chipboard that LOOKS like wood - and is insanely light-weight. Their little embellishments are SO cool. I've been hoarding this little pack for months now.
I kept the inside pretty clean and simple and that was it!

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been sent by a store/manufacturer (with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love). Everything else I purchase myself!
