Pumpkin Spice Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi everyone. Today's the kickoff of the week long Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Fall is my favorite time of year and I just can't wait to see all the fabulous caffeinated autumn lovelies. You can check out all the hop details and prize offerings over on the official Fall Hop post.


As soon as September rolled in, I couldn't wait for pumpkin spice candles.  My boys say they smell like muffins, and what goes good with muffins?  Coffee!  {grin} Though I love pumpkin just about everything, I'm not a pumpkin spice girl for coffee.  I am happy that pumpkin spice season always brings with it salted caramel mochas, though, which I can totally get behind!


I started with a little watercolor wash using a Pebeo watercolor palette from Illustrated Faith.  I then embossed the pumpkin spice sentiment from Everything Nice in white.  The cup from the same set is stamped in early espresso and watercolored with the same set, then cut with the coordinating Pumpkin Spice Die Set.

The leaf spray is from the Autumn Blessings set, which I watercolored as well, then cut with the coordinating Autumn Thanks Die Set and coated with morning dew Nuvo drops and sprinkled with glitter.  I took everyone's advice and made a bunch of Nuvo dots on a craft sheet, then applied them to the card when they were dry, which worked much better than my freehand attempt last time.  Finished off a dry embossed pumpkin backgrond.


Over on the Verve Blog I'm sharing another card today.  This one features a darling new coffee themed digi set I designed. It's the first one I'm offering for sale and I've had a lot of fun creating with it this week. I hope you like it too! It's called Coffee Please and is filled with autumn coffee loveliness, which you're sure to see a lot more of here over the next few days! It's on sale right now, along with all of our fall and coffee themed goodies.
