Final Fall Coffee Card

Well I have had so much fun creating cards for the 2019 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and after making this one I will cease for now until Spring. But this is one hop I love to take part in and I hope many of you got enjoyment from the hop and from seeing my card creations. So with no further ado, here is my card.


Once again I chose to use the free digi set that was offered to all for the coffee hop from Jessica Lynn Originals Designs. It is a lovely set and if you pop into their website you might find it and see all three images included.

 For this one I decided to make it a Fall card with the pretty leaf adornment. So with the cup design and the leaves I added them to a Word doc. and then proceeded to color them with my Bic markers. After I had the designs colored I cut them out with my scissors. To the cup I added a bit of distressing with my blending brushes as well as some distressing around the edge of the pattern paper from Gina K. Designs. The center band on the cup is from the same pattern paper.

Oh, the purple frame was die cut with a My Favorite Things die from some paper my son and daughter-in-law brought me from Japan. It is such fragile paper so it was added to the card but ended up being sort of crooked or out of whack. LOL But I left it that way regardless as I know it would have torn if I had attempted to remove it and try again. The paper has a silky feel to it.

 And the sentiment is one from Unity Stamps which I have used many times as I love those three words on cards of Thanksgiving.

Well, thanks so very much to all who have stopped to visit and leave me comments. They mean the world to me. Take care everyone and have a wonderful Fall and Winter.

God bless,
Verna

I love the paper you used for the background and on the cup, and your coloring matches it nicely. The leaves on the cup look great, and I think the position of the frame goes perfectly with the angled cup and greeting.

I am impressed that you were able to use that gorgeous paper from Japan; I have trouble usingparting with pretty paper I get from Michaels up the road from me!!

Lovely fall card. I really like the addition of the purple to this color scheme. It was a fun hop wasn’t it? It looks like you did well with the commenting. I had so much trouble with the website loading slowly that i didn’t get through them all yet. Hopefully today it will behave better.

KT Fit Kitty said...

It's beautiful, Verna! Thanks for the heads up about the freebie! I was able to snag it for myself, maybe too late for the hop, but there's always next year!
