Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello and Happy Friday! Today I’m participating in a fun hop called the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. You can join in by hopping along, or making a coffee themed card or craft and linking up at the Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog.

Beth Pingry Thanks a Latte Coffee Card

I brewed this one up last night.

I used a few easy techniques. The background is kraft cardstock covered with an Adhesive Sheet, then crunched up tissue paper on top. I used an older Spellbinders die called Flower Pots to create the coffee cup shape (kudos to Shanna Vineyard for doing this years ago), inked with Clearsnap inks, and added Thanks a Latte stamp and sequins  from A Jillian Vance Design. Adhesive is  Dodz Small for the sequins and Thin 3D Foam Squares for all the papers, from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.

Gift Box – Gift Card Holder

The weather here took a turn and it’s suddenly feeling a lot like Christmas! I don’t mind the Christmas part, it’s the cold that I’m not so ready for! However, I could be ready, let me just get the tree up, and get some gift cards ready!

Thanks to A Jillian Vance Design, for their early Christmas gifts and the opportunity to be a Guest Blogger! I came up with this cute little gift card holder, shaped like a gift, but it’s a card!

I based this loosely on this Graduation Card, it’s a bit differently constructed, and definitely easier!

Just flip up the top, and it opens to reveal the gift card tucked inside.
