2015 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop



Welcome!  I'm thrilled to be a sponsor for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  You should be arriving here from SugarPea Designs or if you are just joining in, you can start at the beginning of the hop HERE.

In honor of the hop I created a special digital stamp set (Please note the digital version is no longer available, but will be available as a stamp set called Mug Hugs on 10/7/16).   I personally am a sucker for a good cup of hot cocoa so I wanted to make sure to create some images that could go either way, along with some fun sentiments to match.

To take advantage of the fact that digital stamps can be sized to whatever size you like, I decided to create a couple of shaped cards by enlarging the images.  Up first is a cup of hot cocoa.  Since I printed these on a regular ink jet printer, I knew the inks could run with Copic Markers and other wet pens so I chose to print them onto some fun Doodlebug patterned papers instead.

For my third card I used a more traditional approach to the digital stamps.  Another bonus to digital images is the ability to easily mirror the image so I used that to create this fun card which I printed out on my laser printer and colored with Copic Markers.  

For my card background I imported the PNG version of the heart file and changed the fill color to a khaki to do a tone-on-tone print on my Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and then accentuated them with a E42 Copic Marker.

I couldn't resist creating one final card with the last image in the set.  I colored the mug to match my Doodlebug paper from their 6x6 Santa's Express pad, adding a little sparkle to the whipped cream using Stardust Stickles.

I hope you will join the blog hop and share your fun coffee, tea and hot cocoa inspired projects.  There are lots of prizes up for grabs for those who play along.  You can Link your projects at the start of this hop at the Coffee Lover Blog.  :)

Your next stop in the hop is The Ton.  I'm sure you're in for something amazing (I'm always a huge fan of all their gorgeous creations).  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  :)
