Thanks for Coming to Visit - FWF 9-25 and Coffee Lovers Hop




Hi, Friends......

I am here with my weekly Unity - Friends with Flair post.  Surprise!!!  Unity changed things up again this week!!  lol....  The designer hop and FWF was posted on Thursday evening this week!

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2015/09/2015-fall-coffee-lovers-blog-hop/I also am linking this card up to the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop.   You can use a coffee, tea, or cocoa image.  We would love for you to join in this fun hop, so go here to find out how to enter. 

I have a giveaway, too, so be sure to check out my whole post to find out the details!  :)



Today's card uses one of my neglected Unity grab bag stamps:  "Thanks for coming to visit".  (I guess it is neglected either because I don't like for people to come over or because they never do!  Hahaha.. )  I teamed it up with a sweet little Mary Engelbreit teapot stamp I have had for ages.  I stamped them both with Versafine ink in Vintage Sepia and heat embossed with clear powder.  I debated whether or not I should color the teapots, but decided the card had enough color already.  Leaving them uncolored actually helps them stand out more.

I used scraps for all my panels today and added a lovely felt leaf (from a dollar store pack!  Yay!)  that I glitzed up by rubbing on gold glitter glue.  Love gold shimmer for autumn!!!  The burlap circle and background panel each have some of the glittery goodness on them, too.  :)


I tied a perky bow with some gingham ribbon and mounted it all on a kraft card base.  I really love the country feel that the ribbon and the burlap bring to this card.

Giveaway Details:
I have an extra Stampendous - House Mouse Caffeine High rubber cling stamp to give away!

This is gorgeous, Janis! I love the vibrant colours! Cute stamps too! I would love to win your giveaway! I can no longer drink coffee but I enjoy herbal tea - my favourite is Chocolatey Chai and I have a cup every day! Chocolatey goodness and no calories! I'm in Canada so I might not be eligible but just in case I'm the lucky duck, here's my email: fitkitty1@gmai.com.

lovely card.
I love iced tea plain and many flavors of frappaccinos.
Thanks for joining the Try Stampin on Tuesday Challenge.

Wow, you're back in fine crafting form now that you've settled in back home again! That burlap circle and the sweet little teapot stamps make for a warm and inviting card design. The glitter gives it extra pizzazz!!! My favorite coffee is just regular brewed coffee (from freshly ground beans, of course) and 1/3 hot milk. If I'm feeling especially adventuresome I may use French Vanilla creamer instead!

Di said...

Super card Janis! LOVE the burlap with the gingham - gives a real country feel to a lovely card! My favourite tea right now is peppermint tea :)

Hugs

What a great card that is simply bursting with all things Autumn! I really love the incorporation of the burlap and how you used those gorgeous tones of red. It truly did remind of the beauty of falling leaves. I also like the dusting of glitter which gives it almost a magical look! Thanks for getting me excited about wearing sweaters and boots! And thanks for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

Michele Henderson said...

Beautiful fall card! I love that big red leaf! I prefer hot chocolate to coffee, and my favorite flavor is either chocolate raspberry, or else this amazing stuff I've only found at this place near campus, called White Chocolate Mayan coffee! It's creamy white chocolate and it's amazing!
Take care!
Michele

Such a delightful card!! I love the burlap accent and the glitter really makes your card shine. I'm not a coffee fan, but I love hot cocoa and certain teas from Teavana. Right now, I am liking the Mulled Pomegranate Cider Herbal Tea combo.

Happy Dance said...

Great contrast between the felt and burlap. And the glitter just adds that little extra sparkle to this beautiful red card. So lovely. Those little teapots do stand well on their own without any add color too - good choice! Great Autumnal reds. Bev

Celeste Goff said...

Rebecca Yahrling said...

Hi Janis! Love, love, love your card. All the details are beautiful and I agree, the uncolored teapots are perfect that way. You and I seem to have a lot in common ... I never have visitors! haha And my favorite coffee is also hazelnut. Whenever I want tea, we make a vanilla chai and just add honey and hazelnut creamer - yum!
