Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - One Last Card

Yes, this is my last card for the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop - I promise! I think you may be getting tired of seeing all of my coffee and tea cards, but I had so much fun making and sharing them! If you haven't joined the hop yet, then you had better hurry! The linky is open until 11:59 p.m. Pacific tonight (Friday, October 2).

There was an awesome freebie during the hop (it's available until October 15 if you'd like to go snag it for yourself!), and I just had to use it before the hop ended. It's called Latte Love from Super Sponsor Verve Stamps. Thank you, Verve Stamps! I love this set! I coloured the cup with watercolour markers and inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.  I fussy-cut and popped it up with foam tape and affixed it to a stitched Gift Tag (Top Dog Dies).


I started with a white note card and added an orange panel which I embossed with Darice - Leaves Assorted Pattern.  Then I added a piece of burlap which I hand-cut into a banner shape.  I was following this sketch at Viva La Verve Sketches (Week 3):


I added a bunch of leaves (Impression Obsession Small Leaf Set) that I had left over from a previous project, some beautiful seam-binding ribbon that I won from Little Scrap Pieces (thank you, Karen!), a metal leaf charm, and a cute puffy squirrel sticker.


I would also like to join the following challenges: Beccy's Place October AG UE; Choux Choux Paper Art Halloween or Fall UE; Crafting for All Seasons Autumnal Hues 3/3; Crafts Galore Encore Halloween or October (Fall) 3/3; Creative Moments AG Autumn Colours 1/3; Deep Ocean Autumn UE; DRS Designs Heavy Metal (charm) UE; Fussy and Fancy Autumn Colours UE; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 2/3; Just Keep on Creating AG UE; Kathy Racoosin's 30-Day Colouring Challenge Day 2; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Stitch at a Time Leaves UE; Pattie's Creations Halloween or Fall Image 2/2; Scrap and Craft Colours of Autumn 2/3; Sweet Stamps October AG UE; Verve Stamps Inspiration Autumn Lovelies UE; Verve Stamps Latte Love Link-up; Viva La Verve Sketches Week 3 Sketch; Wags n Whiskers Use a Die Cut 1/2; Wednesday's Creative Inspirations AG Option Sketch UE
