Hello hello hello Coffee Loving Friends… Today is the day that we all have been waiting for!!! The 2019 Fall – Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop starts today!

This Fall – Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop starts from Friday, November 1, 2019 until Friday, November 8, 2019. You can link up your projects anything goes, caffeinated projects [coffee, tea, cocoa, hot apple cider] but your projects should be new, not previously posted, please no back linking.

Kicking off this blog hop… I made two caffeinated cards. First is this CAS Fall themed card for a special friend.

I used the Coffee Lovers Clear Stamps, Fall Greetings Clear Stamps, and Friends and Flowers Clear Stamps on this card.

I tried the no-line watercoloring technique but I still need a practice on this technique… (wink.. wink… ) I stamped the image with Cheerful VersaFine Clair ink pad and then colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens. After that, I dried the image and then fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the cup with Pinecone Versafine Clair ink pad and Tulip Red, then I colored them with Arteza Real Brush Pens and waterbrush. For the steam and sentiment, I stamped them with the same ink pad.

I added the leaves image and cup on the card with Scrapbook Adhesives – EZ Grand Runner and 3D foam tape.

My second card is a mixed media card. I created the mixed media background with gelli printing technique using Helen G. Designs ARTplorations Stencils.

I stamped the cups from the Christmas Cocoa – Joy Clair Clear Stamps on the red printed paper with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad, dried it with craft heater. Then I fussy cut them and I colored them with Faber Castell Big Brush Pens. I added extra highlight on the cups with permanent marker.

I stamped the sentiment from the Coffee Talk – Joy Clair Clear Stamps on a white cardstock, then I trimmed it into sentiment banner, and I added it on top of the card with Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D foam tape.

I added a half-piece of the paper doily on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue and then I added both cups on top of it with Scrapbook Adhesives – EZ Gran Runner. I finished this card with some sequins.
