Thankful Tea

Hi friends! I'm back with my final installment for this year's Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I managed to post every single day during the hop, and it has been so fun creating and sharing this past week.


The beautiful Amber Moon paper pad from Prima arrived in my mailbox yesterday, and I just couldn't help making a another rustic fall card. I started by stamping the kettle and cup from Always Time on one of the papers from the pad. I fussy cut them both and inked them up with distress inks. Next I stenciled a bit of white crackle paste onto another piece of paper, let it dry. I then sprinkled some brown infusions on the page, then misted with water and moved around to ink up the background. I distressed the edges with distress stain and added in another strip of paper, edged with a bit of brown lace.


Next I added some copper metallic wax to some leaves and a wooden leaf piece, then layered everything together, using a section of one of the papers as my sentiment. Finished off with a touch of distressing all around the edges.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous start to your weekend.

Autumn Leaves

Hi friends! I'm back again today with another caffeinated creation for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. For today's card I paired the new Coffee Please Digital Set with this week's Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge.


I started by printing out the sentiment and two of the coffee cups from the Coffee Please Digital Set on my laser printer.  I colored them with copic markers and then used the Cup for All Seasons Die Set to cut the floral cup out and ten I fussy cut the pumpkin cup.


The leaves are Impression Obsession die cuts that I cut from a scrap of polka dot paper, then sponged with ripe persimmon and walnut stain distress inks.  I also used a stabilo brown pencil to accent the veins of the leaves, then painted with a layer of old lace tattered angels glimmer mist for some shimmer. I finished off with morning dew Nuvo drops, a bit of ribbon and some golden pearls.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're enjoying the hop. If you'd like to play along for a chance to win prizes, just ink up a fall coffee/tea/or cocoa project and link it up over on the official Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post. Friday is the last day to link up.

Mini Espresso Treat Cups

Hi friends! I'm back again today with another creation for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  This time I decided to decorate some mini coffee cups with paints and the Coffee Please Digital Set.


During the Labor Day sales I ordered a set of Pebeo Illustrated Faith acrylic paints for $10. I've heard great things about Pebeo and couldn't pass up the price to give them a test drive. I had some mini coffee cups I bought quite a while ago to decorate but still hadn't done anything with them. After making a little template to use to cut paper covers for the cups, I thought it would be so much easier if I could just paint them. And then I thought, why not? So I pulled out some clear gesso and gave each cup a coat to prime it.  Then I just painted on orange and yellow on one cup, patting with a baby wipe here and there to remove paint.  The other one I did with two shades of blue and a bit of white mixed in to lighten it up.


I think these will be perfect for fall teacher gifts. I'm going to have the boys paint some cups and color some leaves, then fill each cup with some fleur de sel candies for their teachers.  I printed the sentiments and the leaf and pumpkin from the Coffee Please Digital Set on my laser printer, then cut with some stitched dies.  The sentiments and pumpkin are colored with copics and I painted the leaf circle with watered down acrylics. The sentiments are added to the cups with mini wooden dowels through the little breathe hole, but toothpicks would work just as well.  Quick, fun and cute! Can't wait to have an art day with the boys. :)  Might be fun to use the bring on the pumpkin spice sentiment and add in some pumpkin spice kisses, too.
