Happiness is...COFFEE!

Happy National Coffee Day, my friends! Fall is here and it brought with it cool air, warm coffee, and my baby in kindergarten. Say what?!? That's ok, I'm the mama with the cup of coffee at the bus stop...especially since it comes before 8am. Whimper.

And, AND, the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is in full swing!

You may have already seen the card I created for Super Sponsor a2z Scrapbooking, but I had to make one with my So Suzy Stamps goodies as well. And I was in the mood to get messy...soooo messy...LOL

The card base reminds me of cozy sweaters and I went with fall, jewel tone ink splatters on my background paper. Don't forget the coffee cozy for that hot coffee!

I used Distress Inks and a paintbrush to make my splatters (ahem, gotta love how well the inks clean up off your desk, brushes, stamp packaging, the cat...) and a die set from Top Dog Dies that I won a while back. Gee, wonder why I picked it? LOL And if anyone asks, that's totally pumpkin spice latte in the cup.

The stamps are from So Suzy Stamps and utterly perfect for this card. Ok, and my life in general. Those I heat embossed with the gorgeous Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

It needed a heart, so I colored a heart die cut from the same die set with my Spectrum Noir DR3 marker and added on Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. A few cups of coffee later it was dry and the perfect touch for the card. Oh, and the brown ink splatters? The new Ground Espresso ink, naturally.

Be sure to check out the entire Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop here - there are some amazing creations, and more keep being added!
