Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I bought a stamp set from Your Next Stamp just so I'd have something to make cards for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops.  I didn't realize the cups were quite so small but hey, they work.
I started by using the cup with Dazzle VersaMark to make a background on Neenah Desert Storm.  That's when things got muddled.  I tried a number of different things for the focal image and paper and made a mess of my desk until I came up with this, using a variety of scraps, a MCS border die and white embossing powder.  That coffee looks pretty darn strong to me but I had to cover up the print on the paper.  ;)

Thanks for dropping by.

  12. I saw your name in the gallery a bit ago, knew it was you, and couldn't wait to get to your card. It was worth the wait for me, and well worth all your efforts in making this sweet card! I love it!! The little cups on the kraft make a perfect background, and I love, love, love those little fussy cut cups. I had to laugh...my mom made coffee so strong, I swear it melted spoons! Thanks for the memory spark. This is a wonderful card. I really, really like it. And Merry Christmas to you sweet friend. Bev
