Coffee Lovers FALL Bloghop - My Cup Runneth Over

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello friends!
What could be better than Fall, but the Fall Season mixed with coffee of course! :)
Are you thinking about the Pumpkin Spice flavor too?!  YUM!
Today also starts another favorite of mine which is the

I just couldn't miss out on this event without making something:
I have decided to pull out my STAMPlorations Sketchy Coffee Cups stamp set and color them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I just love how bright and vibrant the colors turned out on this.  I used my water-brush marker to extend out the color and help blend other colors together.  (I have taken the inspiration for my card from the CASE challenge listed below this post.)

So I took the small coffee cup image from the set and repeatedly stamped it with Ranger Jet Black archival ink over watercolor paper and then cut out a banner strip for my card.  After watercoloring, I covered the inside of the cups some wink of stella glitter pen.  Before attaching the banner to my card, I added some frayed burlap distress ink around the edges of the kraft card base.  I've also taken the MFT Die-namics Falling Leaves and die cut them out with some more Kraft card stock and also inked around the edges of those as well.

I used the STAMPlorations  Literary Caffeine-ations sentiment set to heat emboss with white EP over another piece of kraft card stock that I cut into a banner.  Burlap always makes me think of Fall, so I took a piece to add behind the sentiment and also cut that into a banner shape.  I also inked around the edges of the sentiment banner as well.

Here's a closer view of the card:
I have tucked the leaves behind the banner sentiment with the burlap that I've popped up with some foam tape and then lastly added some clear sparkling sequins for a bit of sparkle.

Here you can better see the Wink of Stella glitter over the coffee in the cups, the coloring and embossing details.

Hope you've enjoyed my creation today and have fun on the blog-hop!!
Thanks for stopping by!
