Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop!!

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today is the start of the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!  

When:  December 9 - December 16
Time:  6:00 am pacific
Theme:  Winter/Holiday

You can find out all the details here!

Now be sure to get something warm and yummy to drink and get ready to hop along!!

Here is my card for the 1st day of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:


White Embossing Powder
Tea Dye distress ink
Assorted paper from my stash
Red, Green & White Bakers Twine

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took the cookie paper, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and added that to the card.  I cut out the My Favorite Things Die-namics Hot Cocoa Cups dies and added the cups to the card.  I stamped the Impression Obsession Stamp & Block Die cookies with Versamark, heat embossed them and then cut them out with the matching dies and added the snowflake and the snowman to the cups.  I stamped the sentiement form the STAMPlorations Carffienated Christmas stamp set with Versamark onto some Kraft paper, heat embossed it with white embossing powder, cut it out with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Rectangle die, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and added that to the card.  I took the Christmas tree cookie and attached that to the corner of the sentiment.  Lastly, I took some red, white and green bakers twine and wrapped it around the top of the card a few times.
