Festive Coffee!

Hello!

I have loved seeing all of the fantastic inspiration from the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop which has been organised by the lovely Amy Tsuruta.  

I am not actually a coffee lover.....but I do love a creamy hot chocolate in a big mug on a chilly day :)  I decided to make a festive card along those lines:


The mug is from Paper Smooches Cyber CafĂ© with a white embossed snowflake from Clearly Besotted and a sentiment from Hero Arts.  The panel was die cut from Clearly Besotted and layered over some patterned paper. 

I have also made a card for the Merry Monday's Challenge to use silver, gold, white and another colour:


I silver embossed these lovely wreaths from PTI and embellished them with gold sequins and purple gems.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.  It is a similar layout to the card above with the die cut panel.  I will also link up at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge to Bling It On!

I hope you like these cards...it has been a mad hectic week so I am amazed that I got anything made :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Sarah x

  6. Well, great minds think alike...I purchased the Paper Smooches stamp set especially for the blog hop....and used the same mug and curly steam stamp!! I also don't like coffee or tea but will drink hot chocolate if I'm out with friends. I love the snowflake on your mug and that gorgeous stripey paper. Purple with silver looks so stylish, especially the silver wreaths.

  18. Stunning cards Sarah. Love the pop of traditional colours on the coffee cup one but the 2nd one I think is my favourite. So utterly classy and elegant. The lilac with gold and silver looks divine.
