I like big cups and I cannot lie

Tuesday December 12, 207
 
OH you probably heard me laughing as I made this card.. I love the sentiment and knew what I wanted to do. I started with a stencil and Ranger ink and created the brick background. I then stamped the Tech. Tues. coffee cup and Mama Elephant bear. I heat embossed the Tech. Tues. sentiment  on a piece of QQ scraps and then tore the paper around it. I colored the images with Mission paints. I added some Christmas colors around the coffee cup. I used a greenery punch from Martha Stewart and QQ scraps an did the greenery on the wall with red bling. I added a Recollection Santa hat. I added a little white gel pen to the bear back.. I think maybe I should of used a brown pen..  This is another CAS card. This is a great coffee set from Tech. Tues. have you checked them out??
this is another card for the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop. Are you playing along??

Coffee is hug in mug

Monday December 11, 2017
 
Oh my I am loving the Gerta Steiner images.. I have used them for my last few cards. They are so darling and fun to create with.. I am still making cards for the Winter Coffee lovers blog hop.. This card I started with a stencil and Ranger ink and created the background. I then used a Paper Trey ink die for the circle.  I stamped the hedgehog and coffee cup by Gerda Steiner and painted with my Mission paints.  I fussy cut the images out. I used a white gel pen to give dots on the coffee to go cup. I stamped the Tech. Tues. sentiment and used a Stampin Up punch. I went around the sentiment with Quick Quote chalk ink. Another CAS card.. isn't this hedgehog darling?..

All you need is love (and more coffee)

Sunday December 10, 2017
 
Good morning.. Have you had your coffee today? or what ever beverage that gets your motor running...
I have a 20 oz. coffee every day in the morning and once in a while later in the day I do another one but that is seldom.
Todays card is for the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop that I am playing in. I know it doesn't look too winter-ish but had my son who lives in Vegas where it's cold (to him at 60 degrees) and the brown grounds and blue skies.. Winter weather doesn't have to always be snow.. but the squirrels having winter hats on makes it more of a winter scene. 
I started by using my cloud and ground templates and Ranger inks. I then stamped and colored with Mission paints the images by Gerta Steiner, Tech. Tuesday, Simon Says and Reverse Confetti. I stamped the Tech. Tuesday sentiment. I then laid out the images. I love the Reverse Confetti hats and they fit pretty good on the squirrels heads. I added the coffee cups and added some Simon Says hearts. I went over the hearts with Spectrum Noir glitter pen.

How have you Bean?

Saturday December 9, 2017
 
Ha Ha I love this fun sentiment.. I had to make this a cheery card. I want the sun to shine and get warmer its just too cold out. This sunny card and hot cup of coffee.. chocolate..tea... will do it. I used Tech. Tuesday images an colored with my Mission paints then fussy cut them out. I used a scrap of paper and Stampin Up die. I stamped some white snowflakes on the cup and then using scraps of vellum I die cut some MFT and SS snowflakes an added to the background. It's hardly noticeable. I used Quick Quote chalk ink to go around the card base and tag image. I added a little Spectrum Noir glitter pen to the coffee beans and coffee. This is a very CAS card.. This card is for day 2 of the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop.

Let's get caffeinated

Friday December 8, 2017
 
I plan to play along this week at the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop.. I had so much fun looking at winter stamps and trying to figure how I can use them in a coffee theme..
I started with Quick Quote scraps for the background. I used a Simon Says hill stitched die for the script paper. I then stamped Gerta Steiner tree, snowmen, small coffee cup and Tech. Tues coffee images and Mama Elephant present. I colored all the images with Mission paints and used a little white gel pen on the hat.  I hope that coffee warms them up but doesn't melt them.. lol
