fall coffee lovers blog hop


My week has been more about wine than coffee since I've been out helping harvest grapes in our town, but I had an idea for a card for this amazing hop and finally got to it today.

You know how they say it takes a village to raise a child? Well, that's kinda how I feel about this project. Check out the stamp sets I gathered together to create my card.


I didn't go far for my inspiration. Can you tell where I got it?


Took a Bo Bunny coffee stain and stamped it with misted Tea Dye Distress Ink. Took a sentiment (STAMPlorations) and stamped it with Versafine and gave it a Tea Dye shadow. Added some Hero Arts branches and leaves and some Avery Elle acorns that I colored with my Zig Clean Color Brush pens. A few coffee beans (STAMPlorations) and a squirrel (Artemio) finished it off. Whew!

I'm joining the Anything Goes and Work it Wednesday crowd at Simon Says Stamp.



Also going to the October challenges at Time Out (so glad I took the time to get this card made) and at A2z where it's about All Things Fall (I used images from HA clear set Holiday Petals and Leaves).

There are already well over 500 entries for the hop - another job well done, Amy T. Have you joined yet? So much inspiration...

MARIA!
How cute is this?! Love how you've made every single image work wonders in your design...soooo sweet!
How fun to harvest grapes! I probably wouldn't last long since my boy and I went blueberry picking and I could only manage about 30 minutes...if even that....but, it was a super hot day♡

Fantastic card, Maria! I love how you brought together the "village" to create this beauty. Grape harvesting for wine sounds like fun, but I'm sure it's hard work. Thanks for taking the time to share this beauty!
