2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello Coffee Lovers and Blogging Buddies,

We just got back from a wonderful vacation on Hilton Head Island and I couldn't wait to make a card for the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!

Here is my card:


Lil' Inker Designs Coffee Cozy Stamp set
Tim Holtz On The Go embossing folder
Penny Black Border Edgers die
Inspired by Stamping Fancy Label Dies 2
Kraft card stock
Assorted papers from my stash
Copper embossing powder

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of this card.  I took a piece of leftover coredinations paper and embossed it with the Tim Holtz On The Go embossing folder, sanded it a little bit and attached it to the card.  Next I took some brown paper and my Penny Black Border Edgers die and cut it out and placed the edger on the left side of the card.  I took some brown ink and inked the edges.  Next I took some more of the same brown paper and cut it out with the Inspired by Stamping Fancy Label Die 2 and cut it out then I stamped the Lil' Inker Designs Coffee Cozy sentiment with VersaMark and then heat embossed it with Copper embossing powder and inked the edges with brown ink and attached that to the card.  I took the leaf die cut from my stash and added that to the card.

I am going to be mailing this out to my Coffee Card Exchange person today and hopefully she will get it before the end of September!

Please be sure to stop by the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop for some awesome inspiration and why not play along too!  They have some great prizes!!

  1. I just saw this on FB and loved it Lori. SO pretty and I'm loving that edger die too.

  2. Eeeek! I just thought today, I haven't seen Lori in the hop. So glad you linked up. Love this, Coordinations papers are so awesome sanded. Great texture. And the perfect sentiment. P.S.
