Spring Coffee Blog Hop3: cards and GIVEAWAY

While I still can,I want to add another card
to the hop,not to win,but just
to share my love for making coffee cards.

with a lot more cards for inspiration. 

I have many coffee stamps and someI don't
even know which brand,but they are just somuch fun to use.
Today I wanted to make cards where,when looking
at them,you smell coffee!

For this deep dark brown card I made the background
with the sizzix coffeebean embossing folder.

I used paper that I sprayed wih this rich coffee
colered glimmer mist. Once I had it embossed I used
sandpaper to give it alittlecontrast.
The stampes are by Enchanted Ink.
For the inside of the card I used 
coffee ring stamp by Club Scrap
sentiment from My sentiments Exactly
and the cup from Enchanted Ink

For the seccond card I also made my own background.
First I added some grains of bistre (naturaland yellow)
and sprayed some water for coloring. Want to know more
about bistre or where to buy,go HERE.
On top i stamped with coffee beans from an old Stampin'Up!
se and the Club Scrap coffee ring.

The image is by Inkadinkado and colored with pencil.
Here you have a good view of the background,esp.when you
click on the picture to see the larger version.
The sentiment on this card is by a company called
Morning Star. I am a real collector of coffee stamps,
so I am sure you will see more coffee cards in the future.

As a collector,it sometimes happens that you buy a stamp
 you like twice.I think with all you coffee lovers,
this is a good time for a GIVEAWAY. I have
these two stamps here for you!
So leave a comment and I would love it if
you became  a follower of my blog.
