Card 3 for Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and Giveaway

Not the card I planned for today, but don't you love it when technology forces you to have to re-work things?? (Giveaway deets at the bottom)

Day 1 Post for an extra entry is HERE
Day 2 Post for an extra entry is HERE

Link to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is HERE

Even after the official coffee hop is over, please keep checking back since I have a couple more projects I want to make and they will count for extra entries.

Consequently my colouring (which I haven't done in months and months) isn't quite the way I wanted it.  The paper is from the Echo Park Coffee themed paper pad and sentiment is by Ink Road.

Now I said I'd make a card featuring the crazy little chihuahua that's also in the giveaway.  I love Katzelkraft images, but they don't come mounted (at least not the ones I have).


This isn't an issue since you can buy sheets of stamp mounting foam from anywhere that sells stamps and tools.  It's sticky on one side which adheres to the rubber, and the other side is the cling foam we use with the usual acrylic block or MISTI.

If you don't have any, I can mount the winner's stamp on cling foam for you before posting.  Just let me know if you win him!

I used a mask and some Colour Burst paste on kraft cardstock for a background and let it dry while I coloured that little doge with Copic Markers.  Kinda sucky, but it was contingency plans all the way!  The shimmery duochrome effect of the paste is gorgeous though!

I just added some pattered paper and mounted the image on pop dots.  Pretty simple!  Once my gold Heidi Shine shows up again, I'll add some ink splatters, perhaps.  It really is a very bare card for me!




📌 I have three items to give away (pictured below) and I'll pull three names.
📌 The first name gets first choice, second name gets second choice and so on.
📌 This Giveaway is NOT SPONSORED in any way,

The first item is a stamp and die set by Studio Light (a Dutch company) Really pretty and versatile images

This next guy will definitely be featured on a card in the coming days.  He's by Katzelkraft which is a French company with awesome images.  He's on red, unmounted rubber.

And we are all familiar with Avery Elle, right?

    1. good grief, I forgot to answer your questions … comes with age! lol
      I love coffee flavored desserts. Well, I never met a dessert I didn't like, coffee flavored or not. lol It's hard to argue with a good Tiramisu. Yum!

  4. Love that gorgeous background and this little dog is so cute. Coffee and walnut cake is a favourite of mine. Thanks for the chance. I am following with friends connects. Hugz

  5. I love that cute dog on your card. Great overall design and colors too. Your coloring is fantastic I think.

  6. Very cute card! I love the Katzelkraft pup! I have a set of their kitty designs!

    I like tea, and my favorite cookie is an Almond Bar I make every year at this time! It's become a family tradition!

  7. SO cute! Love the duochrome dots. So fabulous! :)

  8. Your card is just too cute. I used this image for the hop as I have it too and he's just too cute. I like your coloring and design.

  9. So very fun, everyone needs coffee!

  10. This is such a quirky and fun card...and I am all about Chai lately...with vanilla creamer!

  11. such wonderful coloring and I adore that extra texture!

  12. Hmmm, that chihuahua has probably already had too much coffee...but that's just my opinion! Hilarious card..and I love the shiny dotted background. My favorite drink is just french roast coffee with no sugar, and hot milk. Simple and the perfect go-with for decadent desserts.

  13. I've really enjoyed ALL your fabulous posts. Thanks for sharing your talents, I've really enjoyed them. My favorite dessert is....CHEESE CAKE!!! YUM!!!!

  14. OMGoodness, this little guy is so precious! And I love that sentiment! So true! Your background is gorgeous - I like how it changes colour depending on the angle! As for desserts, I am not particularly drawn to coffee-inspired makes, but more so anything chocolate! Love this cute card and that adorable dog!

  15. Love how you did the background and the cute dog. Latte Matcha is now my favorite.
