Autumn Blessings Fall Coffee Lover Bloghop

Hi friends!  I'm so excited for the start of the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  It's no secret that I love my coffee (and tea) and add in some papercrafting and you've got the perfect blend! Verve is one of over 40 prize sponsors for the Fal Coffee Lovers Hop, so it's the perfect excuse to spend the week surrounded by coffee, tea and cocoa stamps, don't ya think?




My card for today uses a limited time free digi stamp set I designed for the hop.  I've been spending a {little} bit of time illustrating lately, and did a warm-up the other morning with these little coffee themed designs I had rolling around in my brain.  The Latte Love Digi Set is available as a free download from the Verve store through October 15.

I thought Laurie's September Week 4 Viva la Verve sketch this week would make the perfect little pocket card to tuck in a Starbuck's gift card.  I printed out the digis, then colored the cup with Copic markers, adding a bit of glossy glaze and glitter to the pumpkin accent.  The sentiment is cut with a long oval die and I matted it with a scalloped oval and accented with copper stickles.  I went a little crazy last year when I saw these fall woodcuts from Stampin' Up and *may* have picked up a few more than I will ever need, but I love them so much!  I sponged them with distress inks and then lightly sketched in some accents on the acorn and leaf with a marker.


The panels are embossed with the falling leaves folder from Darice and sponged with distress inks and distressed to my little heart's content.  I finished by tying a flat bow around a Starbucks card and tucking it in the little pocket.  Super fun!

Alrighty, that's all for me!  Be sure to check out the hop for tons of inspiration, and if you haven't already, head on over to the Verve Blog for our sponsor post and another card I whipped up with this fun digi set!
