Day 8 - The End Is Near... Sigh

 

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2015/12/2015-winterholiday-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/

So... this is it...the final day to join in on the Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop... I mean.. yes.. my house is a mess.  I haven't been getting the sleep I should.  My husband is wondering if I'm ever going to do anything but work, comment and make stuff.  (Although he did appreciate that when he came looking for a Christmas Card to put a gift certificate for his boss in it.. Voila!)  I have one Christmas gift purchased and many to go.  But I'm still left with this empty feeling.  But... before it's the end I have one more (maybe two if I can sneak it in tonight before bed.. you have until 11:55pm Pacific time so... plenty O time!).
 
I've been wanting to use the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut one of these cool round card bases for a while and just didn't get off my but to do it.. so I cut one (two really).  I've also been wanting to make one of those cards that's ALLLLLL shaker.  So I did!  I have so many things I wanted to use during this hop and just haven't had a chance to use all of them and this stamp set is one of them.  I bought it from Neat & Tangled when they had their Black Friday/Cyber Week sale.. along with some sequins and an actual Christmas Gift for Someone ELSE!!  (Hence, my one gift) This is the one that Amy (oh so awesome leader of the whole Coffee Lovin' movement) made me buy. 
 
I stamped the sentiment in Gold on White paper, colored the cup red, and then heat embossed clear sparkle embossing powder over the whole thing.   I really like the way it came out.  Then I added all my sequins and beads and glitter.  In usual fashion, I had to take it all apart because I added too much stuff to the inside.  I don't know if I've ever made a shaker I didn't have to take apart.
 
 
I decorated the outside with some poinsettias cut using a cute little set from Poppy Stamps (another great company I forgot to mention the other day) and the leaves I had left over from a previous cartridge I believe from the Artistry cartridge.  A few sequins that "fell out" of the shaker added to the outside... the cute little sentiment from My Favorite Things and I was done.  I have an idea for another alike but different... hopefully I'll have time to post before the END, but if not, it will be here waiting for you should you decide to return.
 
If you haven't already... checkout the hop! Even if it's over do yourself a favor and check out all of the fantastic artwork that abounds ... you will see some really cool stuff that makes your eyes happy and meet some really cool people that make your heart happy!
 
See you soon!
