Coffee Lovers Blog Hop {Verve & MFT Stamps}


Today is the big day! The "Fall" Coffee Lovers Hop! I have recently given up coffee...for a while anyway! It is tough on me, as I love the rich taste and the amazing aroma is gives off! Sigh! Hopefully I will be able to drink some soon!!!
Using a MFT coffee cup die that I picked up from Butterfly Reflections Ink and some Verve sentiments from the set One Cup, I went to work and made two simple cards! I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. The first card uses the "Coffee" die from Verve and I hope you can see how the die cut word "Coffee" from Verve, is the top of the sketch...that piece that goes across the top of the card.
 

The second card uses the same colours but different stamps and some plaid paper to mimic a nice cozy blanket! I wanted the cards to match, and to have a Fall "flavour". I have been feeling so cozy lately...drinking tea and wearing sweaters. Have you?


Thank you for stopping by! I hope you get the chance to hop along and play along. A special thank you to Amy Tsuruta for doing this magical hop!

  14. Two great cards. I like the sketch it works perfect with the die cut cups. Cuddly, cozy weather? Not in Sourthern California just too hot, and too humid. But we know this may be a rainy year to come.
