Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Good Morning! My friend Amy Tsuruta organized a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop a few months ago and it was so fun she decided to do another HOLIDAY themed one. Shockingly, I agreed to play along and actually MAKE something as well as be a prize sponsor. I know, right?! {You can close your mouths now. bwahahahaha}


You would think with all the fun goodies I have coming in to the shop, I'd be rolling around in all the products and getting crafty. The truth is that I don't often get time to play and when I do, I just don't have the creative energy at all. I do love coffee and have recently gotten some new coffee themed things so I wanted to make sure I made some time to create something for this occasion! 

I pretty much knew right away that I wanted to use the coffee/latte paper from the Hot Cocoa paper pad and decided to use My Favorite Things new Cool Day stamp set. {Too many stamps, too little time. HA!} I layered a red tag in the back of a Sn@p cut card from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas line. I Copic colored the polar bear (not very well! HA!) and then paper pieced his sweater. I used my snow marker to make the fuzzy part of his hat and added a tiny pom pom. To finish the card I added the Merry Christmas speech bubble veneers, a snowflake with an enamel dot center, some white Stampin' Up! sweater trim and Stickled up the mug! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and hope you like it, too! <3 




This is the prize package I'm giving away. Lots of fun goodies from Prima's Coffee Break collection!


BLOG HOP BONUS! Take 20% off your order from today, 12/10 through Sunday, 12/14. Use the code COFFEE20 at checkout. Enjoy some shopping along with the hop and a hot cup o' joe! Or a pot. ;)
