STAMPlorations and the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + Extra Prizes!

For the CHRISTMAS BELL MEDLEY Special Stamp Release + Comment to Win post, click here. (ends 9/25)


Heads up, STAMPlorations friends! There's a fun blog hop starting today for those of us who love or enjoy a cup of coffee! The hop is hosted by Amy Tsuruta and Chaitali Narla.

Amy and Chaitali have invited lots of sponsors for the hop, including STAMPlorations, who are offering tons of fabulous prizes! Play along by creating a fall-themed coffee, tea and/or cocoa project. Post it on your blog and then link it up at the linky found on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. The linky is open until Friday, October 2, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7). Winners of sponsor prizes will be randomly drawn!


Here's a card to inspire you:


CELEBRATING AUTUMN
One Layer Card


To create this card, I first stamped the coffee cup and sentiment, followed by the French script stamp. Then I created a frame by stamping the grunge border and masking it off to stamp the leaves in various fall colors. I finished the card by coloring the coffee cup using Inktense pencils.

Here are the stamps I used to create the card:

  2. so much impact with your one layer card! if you hadn't mentioned it, I would have thought there was multiple layers to your card.....

    my fave thing about fall is first and foremost the pumpkin spice coffee! grins! but after that comes the gorgeous colors of changing leaves and cooler temps. pumpkins, hay bales, dried corn stalks, mums, sunflowers,and gourds are just a few others....

  3. Shery! I always amazed to see your one layer cards and this one is gorgeous with all among fall leaves! I followed you on pinterest! Thanks for sponsoring!
    There are so many reasons to enjoy fall:
    When you feel that first crisp breeze, you know that summer is gone and fall is in the air. One of my favorite fall activities is taking a drive up a tree-lined street or going on a nature hike. To see the canopy of red, gold, and orange leaves is so enchanting
    Lovers of the season revel in its unique ability to turn the world into one big canvas with nature’s paintbrush!
    As soon as September rolls around, your taste buds will salivate for all things pumpkin. From lattes to ales, pies to waffles, everything gets a delicious pumpkin makeover. You don’t want to miss these seasonal delights.

  4. Gorgeous card! I love how you captured the spirit of fall with your colors! My favorite thing about fall is the crisp night air, the leaves changing color, the crunch of leaves underfoot, cooking soups and stews, wearing sweaters and scarves.

  5. The most beautiful thing about Fall is the beautiful colors of the leaves!! The trees wear beautiful gowns of yellow and orange. It's an amazing thing to see! Love your Fall coffee card!

  11. Ooh, this is always such a fun hop. I love crisp cold mornings when the sky is blue as blue can be, the air is cold and you can see your breath ,and the leaves are crisp and I can scoot my feet through the piles making that lovely scrunchy sound.

Simply stunning! Thank you for being a sponsor!!

  72. What's not to love about Fall?! Being English means I love the word that America and Canada use for autumn and that's Fall! I love the rich red and orange shades that are so in vogue every year. Then I love the look of the trees in our Fall, not as great as the ones we saw in Massachusetts but still stunning. I love a hot milky coffee or a strong cup of tea to warm myself of a fall morning, Thanks for the chance Karen x

    ReplyDelete
  73. Awesome card! I love the layers of leaves over the text and the coffee cup looks fabulous!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Fall is such a sensational time of the year! There's something for all my senses to enjoy, whether it's the taste of all things pumpkin, the feel of crisp autumn air, the smell of leaves burning, the sounds of crunchy leaves under feet or the sight of a bright blue sky with warm yellows, oranges, and reds of the changing leaves on the trees!
