Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop Day 1

You all know that this chic loves her coffee, so I'll be linking up to the Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop that starts today.  It's all about papercrafters who loves cardmaking and also enjoy their hot beverages; coffee, cocoa and/or tea.  Hey, we all have our vices and mine is coffee.  And, paper,  I do have a thing for paper.

For my project today, I've done some hand lettering and designed a fun glossy paper ornament to showcase my lettering.  I've also added  my own hand drawn tiny red cup.  Who doesn't love a red cup full of coffee?!  I've included a few affiliate links below, if you'd like to get your hands on some of the same products I'm using today.

I'm keeping this project fairly simple.  Hand lettering with my Tombow calligraphy pen, (from glossy accents and sprinkled Doodlebug Designs Lily White Sugar Coating.  Just a bit around the edges, while the glossy accents are still wet.

Just find a large glass and draw a circle with a black marker and cut out the shape.  Before covering it in Glossy Accents, I ran it through my Xyron Creative Station.  It's easier to work with while adhered to sticker paper.  Once the glossy accents are dry, just lift off and stick it onto your card.

I also drew and cut the ornament top and adhered the bottom edge to the back of my sticker.  I trimmed out the inside so I could run string through my ornament top and added a bow.  For the base, I inked a woodgrain embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. Easy peasy!

Join in by linking up your newly created coffee, tea or cocoa themed project (must be winter themed).  It's a fun, week long event!
