Fall/Winter 2020 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day

Hello hello hello everyone! It is Friday and… IT IS THE DAY! The Fall/Winter 2020 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is officially begun! I hope you all are as excited we are.

This Fall/Winter 2020 Coffee Lover Blog Hop starts at Coffee Loving Cardmaker Blog. It starts on Friday, November 6, 2020 through Friday, November 13, 2020.

If you are posting on any social media, you can tag us using this hashtag: ‪#fallwinter2020clh and if have not joined us yet, you can join our Coffee Loving Cardmakers Facebook Group where you will find tons of inspirations, fun events, sponsor giveaways, and more!

Today, I started this hop with this SUPER DUPER ADORABLE brand new stamp set – Crazy 4 Cocoa, from Super Sponsor Dare 2B Artzy. It is now available for pre-order now and extimate to be available for shipping the beginning of December.

During this hop, Dare 2B Artzy offers a 10% off with code Coffee10 for your order.

So… I colored the image with Arteza EverBlend Art Markers. Do you see I used magnets to hold the cardstock in place? It was because, 2 weeks ago I had a surgery on my elbow, and I am still on splint and sling. I cannot use my left arm for a while. Then I remember that I have WRMK magnet mat and those MISTI super strong magnets. So Ta-Da! I can do some simple coloring.

The dies I used on my slimline cards are Wavy Slimline Framelits Dies and Oval Scalloped Framelit Dies. When I did the die cutting, it involved LOTS of the amazing iCraft Removable Purple Tape from the Super Sponsor Therm O Web to hold down the cardstocks and dies. And I am grateful for my Gemini Junior, too.

I also used one of the patterned papers from the Snow Much Fun Collection Variety Pack. I embelished the card with some sequins from my stash.

I hope this card give you a spark of idea for you to create any coffee/tea/cocoa projects and link up with us this season.

I cut out a piece of glitter green cardstock and white cardstock for the tag base. And then I decorated the tag with ribbon and a string of mini christmas light. I only which that christmas light can light up, too!

This week, Dare 2B Artzy is teaming up with Tombow. During this week, you will see projects from both design teams on each blog.

On this Give Thanks Bible Art page using the Give Thanks stamp setFoxy Greetings stamp setTombow Dual Brush Pens, and Tombow Water Brush.

I love these thanksgiving song verses in 1 Chronicles 16. They were giving thanks for the love of the Lord in their lives and for the Ark of the covenant of God was brought into the tent. The present of God was with them.

On my square Christmas card today, I used the new Christmas Wreaths ARTplorations Stencil, and for the sentiment, it is the Christmas Blessings Phrase Die.

I traced the wreath on a watercolor paper with watercolor pencils. And then using small waterbrush, I pulled the pigment to fill the images. I dried the watercolored wreath with craft heater.

I added some paint splatters on the background panel with some shimmer spray paints using small brush. I dried the whole background panel again with craft heater. Then, I trimmed it and added it on a 5.5″ square glitter green card using permanent strong adhesive glue (sometimes, regular permanent adhesive runner not sticky enough on a glitter cardstock).

I cut out a piece of green glitter cardstock using the Christmas Blessing phrase die, and I added it on the card with permanent adhesive glue. I decided to add some glossy accent on top of the red berries.
