Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I've had to make a quick card for Chaitali's Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop as I've been relaxing with my family and therefore wasn't surfing the internet so there is less than 12 hours left! Coincidentally one of my crafty friends just handed me a bunch of stuff which had this cafetiere stamp in it (my one and only coffee themed stamp) so this card was meant to be! I wanted to make her a thank you card and as I'm not a latte drinker I had to come up with a different sentiment.
I've die cut the main sentiment and placed some ivory vellum behind it, which catches the lightly beautifully. You would be able to see this, but as it was photographed in the late evening, the sunlight was only reaching the tree tops and not my card!

Hope everyone is enjoying National Coffee Lovers' Day and that you've been perked up by all the caffeinated inspiration along the hop! If you are quick there may still be time to link up and win some prizes,  if not grab a cuppa and enjoy! Thanks Chaitali for all the fun.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Smitty's ABCs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa
Die: Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks
Paper: Kraft card & vellum from stash
Highlights: Glossy Accents, silver gel pen
Colouring : Promarkers in my big coffee mug!!

Now I need to remove the Promarkers and fill it up with some Java.  On second thoughts I'll leave that until the morning! Have fun and see you again soon.


  1. Your card is adorable! And who wouldn't love to get a "perky" card like that!

  2. This is a great card! I love the sentiment too!

  3. What a fun card! I love the colors and the great texture!

  4. I love your card, Gra! The fact that it is a thank you card makes it really super with the sediment you used! And awesome staging!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Love it...awesome die cut sentiment and I adore that little french coffee press!
