We are always thrilled to participate in the Coffee Lovers Bloghop and the winter hop seems more than appropriate since it's cold outside in the Pacific Northwest and we love coffee to keep us warm and to help with these short days of winter.
Making tags this time of year is one of my favorite crafts and it always seems like I need to make several that go along with a coffee gift card. I love this little walrus from Savvy Stamps and thought it was perfect with the Impress coffee cup stamp. It looks like a venti size next to the walrus! The saying stamp is a NEW stamp that Impress will be releasing later this month! You are the first to get a sneak peek of this stamp and it will be included in our coffee theme grab bag prize that we will be giving away for the hop!
Here is a close up so you can see some of the details. The stitched tag comes from MFT and it's a nesting set so you get several in all different sizes. I colored in the coffee cup with colored pencil and the sleeve with a red copic marker. I wanted a bright solid red color and then I used my favorite white pen to add the word joy to the coffee sleeve. I sponged the background with provincial grey Fresh Ink and a dauber. The red star/ribbon shape at the top is a ribbon trio die set by Savvy Stamps and I stapled it to the top of the tag with a little piece of gold and white twine. The woodland trees are stamped in paper white Fresh Ink on red paper.
Here are some of the supplies used for this card. Thanks for stopping by and for participating in the hop! Happy Holidays!
