Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day 7

Hello, everyone!  Today is Day 7 of the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! Just one more day of fun left!  If you haven't already joined, it's not too late! Just link up a newly created fall-themed project that focuses on coffee, tea, or cocoa. The linky is open until 11:59 p.m. Pacific tomorrow, Friday, October 2. Hope to see you there!


Today I've used a fun image from From the Heart Stamps called Birdbrain Needs Coffee. I coloured it with watercolour markers, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape.  

To begin, I created a background by stamping a coffee text stamp repeatedly in Versamark ink on a kraft panel.  I won this stamp from Hetty in one of the previous Coffee Lovers' Blog Hops (thank you, Hetty!). Hetty is an avid coffee drinker, and there is lots of coffee inspiration on her blog!  

I found a couple scraps of fall-themed patterned papers from Momenta in my stash and cut them according to the sketch below.  The sentiment is from the same Birdbrain set.  I added some die-cut Impression Obsession Oak Leaves and two tiny brown gems.

I would also like to join the following challenges: Beccy's Place October AG UE; Choux Choux Paper Art Halloween or Fall UE; Craftin Desert Divas Things with Wings UE; Crafting for All Seasons Autumnal Hues 1/3; Crafty Creations Falling for You 1/2; Crafty Gals Corner Things with Wings 1/2; Cute Card Thursday Masculine UE; Deep Ocean Autumn UE; Di's Digi Designs Animals Acting Like Humans 3/3; DL.ART October Linky UE 1/day; Fresh Brewed Blog The Great Outdoors 1/5; From the Heart Stamps Sketch 120 (see below); Inspiration Destination AG UE; Just Keep on Creating AG UE; Mod Squad Things with Wings UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Stitch at a Time Leaves UE; Paper take Weekly Take Your Pick: Autumnal Colours 2/5; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 2/3; PINspirational Inspiration Photo 4/5; Simon Says Stamp AG 2/5; Sweet Stamps AG UE; The Male Room Autumn UE; Wednesday's Creative Inspirations AG Option Sketch UE; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5
