Calling all coffee lovers + giveaway :)

Hey hey, did you all know that today is National Coffee Day? I didn’t, until Chaitali started the coffee lovers facebook group and this hop! The hop is a little different — anyone and everyone can join in just by linking up over here. And there are giveaways! Hope you grab a cup of coffee and join us. :)

Here’s the card I made — I gave it to my sister Chris when I visited her in Florida over the weekend. You see, she has a thing for pumpkin spice lattes. I guess I’m a bit of a coffee snob purist. I like my coffee to taste like coffee. Sometimes I might add a little milk, and sometimes I drink cold brewed coffee, but that’s about it.

I used Hero Arts pumpkin pie and just rust inks to make it look like well yeah — pumpkin! And I made some splats for the spice.

Then on the inside I used a new alphabet set that Kelly Purkey designed for Hero Arts as part of her new collection. That girl is a genius. Check it out, she designed shapes to fit inside the letters to give them some color. Genius, right?

This set (and more!) will start shipping to participating stores on December 15th — can’t wait until you see the whole collection!


Hero Arts is a proud (and caffeinated!) sponsor of the hop! They are giving away the Need Caffeine stamp set, a pack of Earth notecards, and a Cup O’ Joe inkpad. Perfect, right? To enter, just add your coffee themed project in the linkup over on Chaitali’s blog! Can’t wait to see what you make! xo

  6. I’m with you on being a coffee purist. I don’t mind the extra flavors occasionally. Who wants to drink a pumpkin pie every day? I love my coffee black and strong. I love the splatters on the background behind your coffee cup. Great card.

  7. This totally rocks– love the composition on the front– the letters inside are phenomenal!! MERRY CHRISTMAS– can’t wait til this set comes out. And I hear you about the coffee– purist, good word. Me too. I have some great coffee roasters and shops featured on my website–and am lucky to live so close to amazing roasters in Seattle, Portland and Vancouver– and Victoria, BC– if you are interested, drop on by~ haven’t checked out the coffee scene in Austin… love your work!

  8. There’s genius in that caffeine!! What I want to know about is that great “bag” behind your creation…what is it and how does one make it, do tell!?? ;)

    1. Hi Terry,

      The “bag” in the photo is a storage container from Bookhou — I have several, love them! I keep my embellishments in this one.

      Hope that helps and may all your days be caffeinated with good coffee :)
