Coffee Lovers Wishes

Hi friends!  The Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is under way and I've been itching to make a card. It's been a crazy busy couple of weeks here at Casa Tilman and this morning I snuck into the studio to stamp for the first time in what seems like ages.  Just a quick little card using the Coffee set and a sentiment from the Cup of Kindness digital set limited time freebie, then back to trying to prevent my own little versions of Cain and Abel from repeating history.  {wink}



I started by embossing the coffee cup in gold and cutting with the coordinating Cuppa Joe Die Set . I then colored with Clean Color real brush markers and a waterbrush.  Next I used another of the embossing folders I picked up at Tuesday Morning.  This one is holly branches, and I just loved the look of it, so decided to watercolor the embossed parts with the same markers and a waterbrush.

I distressed this panel and added it to a layer of always artichoke that I stamped with the coffee beans stamp tone on tone.  This bit of ribbon from my stash seemed like the perfect match for the colors, so I tied it on and added some jingle bells.  Finished off with the printed Winter Wishes sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  If you missed it on the Verve Stamps super sponsor post, I have a sweet little discount for all your coffee, tea and cocoa lovers in the store. Use gift code COCOA at checkout for 15% off.
