2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I was able to get one entry into this fall's Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I have participated in each hop so far and had to get at least one in. 
This school year has kept this teacher EXTRA busy.



I used MDT's Coffee die set I purchased from Holly Endress (See her Instagram @hollyberrydestash for deals on awesome stamps. I have purchased twice from her)  with Lawn Fawn's fall 6x6 pad from last year.  The leaf stamps as also by lawn Fawn.



I used vellum for the straw and lid.



Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

Coffee Lovers Hop: Summer Edition Card #3

Playing along with the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Summer Edition.  This is card #3.
I recently got the free "thanks" die from MFT with my last order. 
I used the negative on my last post. 
Here are the letters cut out of Lawn Fawn's plaid paper.
 
I prepped the back panel applying distress inks with a clarity brush
then flicked a couple other colors with the splatter brush.
Added with coffee bean (Fiskars) with Catherine Pooler ink.  
 
 
first time using the die... cut the slots crooked.. oh well...

MFT Camp Create 2017 BONUS: Dry Embossing

 
Dry Embossing is the very last challenge for the camp. 
I used an older number die set from MFT to carefully dry
emboss the number "50" for the background for the shaker.
Took two tries to get it right.  Not bad!
 
 This will be an anniversary card for my in-laws. 
MFT "Beautiful Blooms" on the left. 
Bit of shimmer on the flowers that's hard to see. 




 
I had a blast last week creating these special cards for the challenges.
Proud to say I completed ALL the challenges (thanks to summer break)
AND the bonus, each using an MFT product.
Thanks to MFT!

Just a Note...



Used a dimensional apple sticker set on watercolored background.
The flicks kinda look like blood so maybe not the best choice of flicking colors, lol
