More ATCs for Pocket Letter

Hi, everyone!  It's the final day of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The hop will be over in a few short hours - I've really enjoyed myself this week!  I hope you had a chance to join the fun!

More ATCs and Finished Pocket Letter

Hello, everybody!  I'm back again today - this is my second post!  I'm participating in the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and there's only one more day left (sad face)!  I'm sharing two ATCs (they measure 2.5" x 3.5") and a tag to complete one of my Pocket Letters - Yay! I'll work on the other Pocket Letter tomorrow but I'm uncertain if I'll be able to complete it... we'll see!


Card #1

My first ATC features an adorable kitty from Your Next Stamp - Coffee Right Meow.  I coloured her with Touch Five markers and die-cut with the coordinating die.  

I was inspired by the colours for Challenge 48 at Your Next Stamp:



Here are the other products used:
  • Sentiment stamp: Your Next Stamp - Coffee Break
  • Dies: Impression Obsession Oak Leaves, Impression Obsession Swirl Tree, Lawn Fawn Grassy Border, Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers
  • Patterned paper: Doodlebug
  • Other: Sparkly washi tape from my stash

Card #2

This ATC features an adorable little Coffee Hedgehog from By Miss Rach.  This was a freebie a few years ago (thank you, Miss Rach!). I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape. I made some leaves with distress inks and splatters!

Here are the  other products used:
  • Stamps:  Sentiment (Kelly Purkey Fall Favorites), Coffee Word Background (received from Hetty - thank you!)
  • Dies: Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves and Small Stitched Leaves, Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers
  • Patterned paper: K and Company, Doodlebug
  • Other:  Sparkly washi tape and tiny gem from my stash


Tag

I made a tag to attach to the Pocket Letter - I think it adds a nice finishing touch!  The cute image is from Gerda Steiner Designs called Mr. Mouse with Coffee. He was a freebie at one point (thank you, Gerda!).  I coloured him with Touch Five markers and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape.

Here are the other products used:
  • Sentiment stamp:  Lawn Fawn Chit Chat
  • Dies:  My Creative Time Tag Dies and Tag Layers, Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves and Small Stitched Leaves
  • Embossing folder:  Elizabeth Craft Coffee Bean
  • Ribbon: Won it from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces (thank you!)

Nuts About Coffee

Hello, everyone!  Happy National Coffee Day!  Today is also Day 7 of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  That means there is only one day left if you want to join the fun!  I feel sad that it's coming to an end - this is my favourite hop!  Anyone can join this hop - you can read all about it here.


I'm still working on the little ATCs for my Pocket Letter!  An ATC measures 2.5" x 3.5" and I need nine of them to complete a Pocket Letter. For some crazy reason, I thought I could finish two Pocket Letters during this hop.  I guess I should have started earlier!

Cup of Cheer

Hello, everyone! It's Day 5 of the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Have you checked out the hop yet? You can read all about it here.


Today I'm sharing another ATC - it measures 2.5" x 3.5" and is the perfect size for a Pocket Letter. I'm working on two Pocket Letters now and my goal is to finish them during the hop!


I used an adorable digi from Craftin Desert Divas called Coffee Time Bunny. It's brand new for the hop! I went with the pre-coloured version since it's already so cute! I die-cut it into a circle with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Circles and inked around the circle with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things - Hug in a Mug. The patterned paper is from K and Company and I inked the edges with the same Distress Ink. It is layered onto kraft cardstock, which I die-cut with Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers. I finished off the card with two flower cup sequins.

I would also like to support the following challenges:  Craft Your Passion AG 1/3; Crafty Catz AG Optional Ribbon and Pearls 2/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper September UE; DL.ART September Linky AG UE 1/d; Just Keep On Creating AG UE; Not Just Cards September AG UE; Perfectly Created Chaos Patterns 2/3; Pile it On Autumn Colours/Theme UE; The Outlawz Monday Greeting AG 1E
