Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I love coffee. It's true. But I am quite the coffee snob. HA! I only really like a few certain coffee drinks but at home, I drink Dunkin Vanilla with about 4 cups of Coffeemate Vanilla Creamer. You don't want to know how many big jugs of that stuff I go through a month. Eeek!

I created a super fun card for this hop while I was at my stamping retreat. So much fun!
I started with creating a blending background by masking off my Neenah white cardstock with painters tape. I blended Tim Holtz Distress Inks until I achieved the look I was going for. Then, I placed a Tim Holtz stencil over the blended area and dabbed it with a wet baby wipe to pick up the color. I loved how this turned out! The coffee word die is inlaid. The die and bean stamp is from Verve.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and go grab a cuppa! xo
