Magic Potion Coffee with TPD Stamps for Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop

We're winding up the September stamp release at Two Paper Divas with a store wide sale in celebration of the Fall Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.  A discount of 25% will be taken off at checkout so if you've got a wishlist, now's the time to stock up.

Since we're talking about coffee, I've got an unusual project today that spotlights that magic bean, that juice that gets my day jumping..... yes, indeed, coffee is a magic potion for many of us, wouldn't you say?

I wanted to create a Halloween card so I've taken a page from a used Harry Potter paperback that I picked up specifically for re-purposing.  I've paired it with Graphic 45 Rare Oddities papers to spotlight that magic potion..... coffee!  I'm using the Afternoon Tea stamp which is from the newest release.  Notice how my theme ties everything together?  Coffee sitting on books, a book shelf in the background and a page from a book.  I'm an avid reader as well so if you have a good book recommendation, I'm all ears.

It is also no coincidence that this page is from the Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets book.  The chapter title is The Polyjuice Potion.  The story line is when Professor Dumbledore's bird, Fawkes, caught on fire.  My polyjuice potion is coffee.  It turns me into a human, haha!  I've also distressed my book page and added splatters as well.  And, we have a bird in the background which ties to the story line also.   This is a large card at 5"x 7" and could easily be used as a display piece.

You can create a new project and join the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop as well.   Get the details here.   Two Paper Divas is a sponsor and is giving away prizes all week.  Details can be found on their blog.
