National Coffee Day Blog Hop


Hello coffee lovers!  We're so excited to be participating in the National Coffee Day Blog Hop!


To celebrate, we're sharing some fun projects, offering you a great discount, and giving away FOUR, $15 discount codes to four lucky winners.  To participate, tell us what your favorite coffee drink is, in the comments below.  On Saturday, October 6th, we'll randomly select four winners from the comments.  Winners will be announced on our blog, on October 8th.  So, be sure to check back on the 8th.  You could be one of the lucky winners and we'll need your email address to send you your discount code.

We're also offering a great discount to our online store.  Be sure to use the coupon code when checking out to save 20% on your purchase!


We're sharing three coffee inspired cards with you today.  We hope you enjoy them!

For our first project I used Thanks a Latte from Lawn Fawn along with the Plaid Background stamp from Concord & 9th to create a Fall inspired coffee card.  The images are colored with Copic Markers and embellished with Nuvo Glitter drops in White Blizzard, white embossing powder and a white gel pen. (Supply links can be found at the end of this post)



The next two cards were created using the same stamps and similar techniques. The backgrounds were stamped with images from the Coffee Break stamp set from MFT Stamps.  The featured mugs are stamped with Copic friendly ink using the new, Thanks a Latte set from Lawn Fawn, and colored with Copics.  I embellished the mugs with a white gel pen.


I masked off the edges of the card below before stamping the background images.  After stamping, I  used an ink blending tool to add some Antique Linen Distress Ink over the stamped images.  Once complete, the masking paper was removed.  The sentiment was added to the bottom and the mugs popped up with foam tape.


Thank you so much for stopping by.  Don't forget to leave a comment, and check back on October 8th for winner announcements.

There are so many amazing blogs participating, sharing creative projects and giving away great prizes!  Please use the links below to join the hop and visit each of them.
