Coffee Lovers BlogHop-Day 5 With Paper Smooches!


Welcome to Day 5 of the Winter 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  And here's what I have for you today:


So you should know... I haven't gotten great reviews from my test audience on this one.  I've been told it looks like a duck and then the old "It's certainly unique" and my wonderful husband's... "what is that?  That is not a good card" before he knew it was mine...lol.  Can you tell what it is?   That's right!  It's a snowman squeezing the last few drops of coffee from a coffee cup!  (I'm just trying to make myself feel better... maybe you didn't guess... but can you see it now??)

I used the adorable new Snowman Card Dies to create this cutie.  I'm very excited to be Guest Designing over at the Paper Smooches Blog this month.  I was inspired by another card by Design Team Member Savannah O'Gwynn and you can check it out here!


Love this cup from the Coffee and Tea Dies.  I love it when a cup die has the inside of the handle cut out.  And that cute little snowman is from the Cool Dudes stamp set.  My snowman has a snowman coffee cup.. that's cute, right?  And the snowflakes on the cup and background... I cut some snowflakes using the Snowflakes Dies out of some double sided Elizabeth Crafts adhesive.  I peeled off once side of the adhesive and pressed the snowflakes onto the card and cup.  Then I peeled the opposite side off and ribbed on some Prisma Glitter.  I love the way it came out... sparkly, but it picked up the color from the paper.  Those coffee drops I cut free hand and added a few layers of Liquid Glass to make them look like droplets!

And there's a challenge going on over at Paper Smooches this month... all about winter!



I'm also linking up to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #435!  You should check this one out!



So, thanks for stopping today and hope you enjoyed it.  Honestly, I love this card!  Sorry if you don't...lol!  

Hope to see you again tomorrow!

Why, I could make it out within 30 seconds (if not immediately).. and I think it definitely very well done! It takes some innovation to put it together so well, I think you've definitely pulled it off really well! :) Awesome card!!
