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 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.

So Foxy from Neat and Tangled

Hello crafty friends.  Thank you for stopping by our blog.  Today we're sharing a Fall card created with the adorable So Foxy stamp set from Neat and Tangled and the Wreath Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th.

 To create this card,  I used the MISTI and the Wreath Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th to stamp the wreath on kraft cardstock.  I then used the Wonky Stitches Rectangles to cut it for the front of my card.

This adorable fox was stamped on Colored Pencil paper from Strathmore and colored with Polychromos pencils.  You'll find the specific colors linked in the supply list at the bottom of this post.  I added some black glaze pen to his eyes and nose for a shiny, slightly dimensional look.

In the event you don't receive our emails, you may have missed our Turnabout Promotion.  It's not too late to take advantage of the extra savings.  We're offering the discount through September 20th.  You can find the Turnabout Stamps from Concord & 9th in our online store.
