Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Good morning! 

So I am glad to be participating in the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!
I used this cute little Coffee Plans stamp set from SRM Stickers!
For my card, I wanted to create a background using the coffee cup.  I stamped it in a brown ink and used Prisma Colored pencils.  I added a sentiment from the Stickers by the Dozen collection across the front.  I tucked a red die cut leaf behind it.  (After the leaf had been given a coating of glossy accents and glitter!)
I added a bit of rustic twine tied into a bow.  I scattered several gems and stars from Queen & the front. 

I rounded the back panel's edges on two sides and adhered the entire front to a kraft card.

Thank you all for stopping by!  I appreciate your visits!

Vintage Rusty Lid Ornament!

Good morning! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog today with a vintage ornament.  Over the years my style has evolved, but vintage still makes my heart flutter.
Over the summer I take lids from candles and soak them in vinegar water.  You can do this with silver jingle bells too! I leave them all summer until they are beautifully rusted! I die cut a circle to fit inside, sponged ink on the edges, and stamped the image in black. I colored it using Copic Markers. I added a bit of glimmer using a Wink of Stella pen.  
I didn't want the image to sit too far inside the lid, so I used Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam tape.  I stacked 3 layers under the image and adhered it in place.  I used the Dual Tip Glue pen to add the glittery snow underneath her. 

I die cut the poinsettia using a Spellbinder's die.  I colored it with Copic Markers and then gave each layer a coating of glue using the Dual Tip Glue pen.  I sprinkled it with glitter.  I assembled the flower and wanted it to sit up on the lid, so I once again, used the Crafty Foam Tape underneath it.  I added some gems (Queen & Company) and dots of silver Stickles around the perimeter.  
Have a wonderful Sunday! Thank you for popping by!
