2018 Fall and Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Yippee!  We're excited to be sponsoring the Fall and Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!   Want to play along?  You can find all the details and how to participate on the Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog.

We're thrilled that you've stopped by and hope you enjoy all the wonderful coffee, tea, and hot cocoa inspired projects being shared during the event.  We're sharing a few projects today, and offering a great discount to our online shoppers.  We apologize in advance, our shelves are looking a little bare.  We were so busy during the Black Friday weekend and our restock orders haven't arrived yet.

The first project we wanted to share was created using the Gift Box Card die from Avery Elle.  We thought it was the perfect way to gift someone a coffee gift card.

Our second project uses the adorable, and super popular Penguin Treat Holder from Neat and Tangled.  We thought it would be fun to have him/her holding a package of instant Starbucks Coffee.  It would also be cute holding a candy cane, or a Valentine treat!

Our final project uses the new Fold Up Tags from MFT Stamps.  I LOVE this die!  We colored the pumpkin spice mug from Lawn Fawn with our colored pencils and fixed it to the top of the tag that we attached to some hot cocoa mix.  Lift the top flap, to reveal the to: and from: portion of the tag.

We sure hope you enjoyed the projects.  We enjoyed creating them.  You'll find a list of supplies and links below.

Little Snowman Agenda from Mama Elephant

Hello and thank you for stopping by our blog!  Today we're sharing a cute, colorful card created using the Little Snowman Agenda stamps and dies from Mama Elephant along with the Wonky Scallop Frames from Avery Ellle.  We hope you enjoy the card!

The snowman images were stamped with Copic friendly ink and colored with Copics.  The frames and the inside rectangles were colored with Distress Oxide Ink.  Specific colors are listed below in the supply links.

Before assembling the card, I added some Shimmer Spritz to the inside rectangle pieces that I colored with the Distress Oxide inks.  Stardust Stickles were added to the elements on the snowmen and the Holiday messages were stamped with VersFine Black Onyx ink.

I used the leftover snowmen to create tags similar to the one shown below.

Mini Pop Up Box From Lawn Fawn

Oh my!  This is one of my favorite products from the Lawn Fawn Holiday release.  The Mini Pop Up Box from Lawn Fawn creates these fun, interactive scenes that pop up when you open the card.  It's super easy to create and can be used all year.  I have plans to create a bouquet of flowers for a spring card and balloons for birthday cards.

I pulled out my Little Reindeer Agenda and Little Santa Agenda stamps from Mama Elephant to create this Holiday card.  I thought it would be fun to have the reindeer jumping out of the box once the card was opened.

I kept the front of the card simple with a frame and one of the Santa images.  I cut several frames and stacked them for more dimension.

Here's the inside of the card.  The box pops up once you open the card and is  the perfect size for all the Little Agenda stamps from Mama Elephant.

Below is a video from Lawn Fawn introducing the Mini Box Up Box.  It's super helpful and demonstrates how to assemble the box and several ideas for fun, interactive cards.
