Caffeine Fueled Paper Play - Tribute to Craftin' Desert Divas


I'm up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today with a special Caffeine Fueled Paper Play.  You may have heard that long time Super Sponsor of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Craftin Desert Divas has closed its doors.  We wanted to send it off with a special post and I've got a couple special people joining me over there so after you leave here, please do pop over there and check it out!

We're all using Craftin Desert Divas products to inspire you today and we have two prizes for two separate winners for this month's challenge!  Play along for your chance to win and get the details over at the CLC Blog.

 Amy and I have each put together a little prize pack.  Here's a pic of one of the prizes:


You can check out the second prize at Amy's blog here!

Here's how I was inspired:


I started by creating this background with a Coffee stencil from CDD.... I have coffee beans flying through my autumn air instead of leaves... maybe it would be easier to get someone to rake up the yard if that really happened!


I used the Timber stamp set for my images... which isn't a coffee stamp set, but if you come here often, you know my favorite thing to do is make a coffee card from a non-coffee stamp set!  And this cute little lumberjack was perfect... I'm sure lumberjacks love Pumpkin Spice as much as the rest of us!


CDD has always had some of the cutest critters!  And I have to say the landscape dies have been long time faves of mine and I use them all of the time... like this tree border.  I cut it from white cardstock and colored it with distress oxides.


I used a cup from another CDD set and it was perfect for this little lumberjack!  And built my sentiment using the Tiny Sentiments set.


I'm playing along at Double Trouble Challenges Fall Themed Challenge and using the Twist of Sweet Treats!  And Double Trouble is partnering with The Paper Girls who are also having a Fall Themed Challenge!  Play along with both for extra chances to win the Double Trouble prize!  AND with my sweet treat I'm playing along over at Cupcake Inspirations Food and Drink Challenge!  You should check that out for sure!



That's what I have for you!  I hope you enjoyed your stop!  Be sure to check out the challenge post up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog here and I hope you'll play along with us!  And give our special guests a visit as well... there are links to each of their posts up on the blog and I'm sure they'd love to hear from you!  And you can leave some love for Tara as well up on the CDD blog here if you'd like!  I'm sure she could use some nice words!

See you again soon!

Love the scenery created outside the window frames and of course the lumberjack and his outdoor pals are fantastically colored and so adorable. And again you have made Twisted Sister happy with the sweet treat. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and The Paper Girls. Come back with some more of your fall projects.
