Coffee Loving Paper Crafters Fall Blog Hop


Even though I'm not a coffee lover (I know, I know!), I'm joining in on today's Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Despite my disinterest in drinking coffee, I do love coffee themed stamps and have a nice collection!  I inked up the Be a Barista stamp set from Reverse Confetti for this card.

Espresso My Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
To go with the hop's fall theme, I created a thank you card.  The textile-like pattern on the patterned paper I used also reminded me of fall, even though it isn't a traditional fall color palette.  I colored the coffee cup image with Copic markers to coordinate with the patterned paper, then used foam tape to adhere it to a kraft tag die cut.  The thank you sentiment was stamped in brown pigment ink on a pink banner strip that I tucked underneath the card.  A paper doily and some taffeta ribbon threaded through the tag and secured with twine added a bit of texture to the design.

Be sure to stop by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog for a full list of blog hop sponsors and links to amazing coffee-themed crafty creations!

Materials Used:
Be a Barista stamp set, Confetti Cuts Tag Me and Caffeinated Cups dies (Reverse Confetti); Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch and Rich Cocoa inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); So Saffron and Pink Pirouette cardstock, Kraft taffeta ribbon (Stampin' Up!); Kraft cardstock (WPlus9); Cedar Lane 6x6 paper pad (Pink Paislee); twine (Hemptique); white paper doily; foam tape
