Coffee Lovers #4

First of all I want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments. For some reason I am not getting notices in my email now. So please accept my apologies for not saying "thanks" to you during this down time. I was hoping by leaving a comment on my own blog that it might work, but that is not working either.

This is a card I made using dies and some pattern paper and card stock. No stamping at all on it.
This card of course is being added to the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.


The peppermint latte and the snowflakes are from a Cottage Cutz set called Peppermint Latte. And, the gingerbread man is from Cheery Lynn Designs.

For pattern paper I chose to use is some from Stampin' Up! And, all the card stock is from Gina K. Designs.

I added some sponging to the latte using the Life Changing Blending Brushes I got from Picket Fence Studios. And, the white on the gingerbread man was added with a white paint pen. I added a bit of red card stock to the back to make his buttons colored red. I wanted them to look like those cinnamon dots we use on cookies often.

I am also adding this card to the Dies R Us Challenge # 110 because the Cheery Lynn Designs gingerbread man is from a company whose dies they sell. The challenge calls for snowflakes and since I added a few I think this will qualify.

Thanks for the visit and rest assured I am looking at the comments even though I am not getting notices anymore. I don't know if others are having the same issues or not but it is very frustrating to me. Anyway, have a great rest of the weekend.

God bless,
Verna

Absolutely darling card--love it! When the email notices went away last time, it worked to take your email out in your dashboard & save. Then put the email back in & save again. Hope it works for you.

The card before this one and this one are so cute. This paper is perfect for this card. I love how you did his hat and the coffee looks delicious. I don't get email messages either. I go back to my blog and read them so I hope I don't miss anyone.

Oh, how cute this is!!!! I adore the red cup1 You highlighted it beautifully. Sweet gingerbread man. Simply darling card!

Leslie Miller said...

I think your card qualifies perfectly for the DRU challenge. You're getting some good use out of that gingerbread man. He's just a darling! I love that Peppermint Latte, too. The cup looks very festive in red and super cute with the peppermint candy and candy cane. Cottage Cutz has some of the cutest dies, and this one looks like not too many small parts.

You sure have been busy loving coffee, Verna. I love the ginger bread man and candy cane you added and that background paper is perfect.
