coffee lovers winter blog hop...

Hello!!!  As many of you know the Coffee Lovers Winter blog hop starts today and I have a card that I made for the hop using Hero Arts Coffee Cups Tags and the matching dies.   The layout for the card is based on the current Freshly Made Sketches layout.   This card is going to the gals who work at the Starbucks that I frequent so I went with a Starbucks Christmas inspired design.  The papers used are from the Teresa Collins Santa's List 6x6 pad.  I die cut the cup from the snowflake patterned paper and then the lid and the wrap from another piece from the pad and then stamped them with the matching images using green ink.  The little bit of holly was stamped in the same green and then die cut with the matching die.  The sentiment was stamped in a red ink that matched the snowflake paper.   The snowflake (from A Jillian Vance Design) was die cut from silver glitter cardstock because well... glitter makes everything better, right???   I was delighted to see that the die cut snowflake matches the little snowflakes in the pattern perfectly!!   Another piece of paper from the same pad was trimmed into a square and then everything layered up as you see on a white cardstock panel.  Since I'm not a coffee drinker my little cup is full to the brim with a yummy Starbucks Chai Latte made with soy milk!   With my icy looking snowflake I'm going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of Ice Inspired and to Lori's Visions of Sugarplums challenge.

Hope you have a wonderful day... happy hopping!!
Supplies:  Cardstock:  red, white, silver glitter cardstock; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Dies:  Hero Arts and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up! Real Red and Emerald Envy
