Coffee Coffee Coffee, Hop Hop Hop

Click here for the October Card Chain Challenge sign up

Hello.  Welcome.  Have you noticed the sudden surge of coffee themed projects?  It's the fall coffee lovers blog hop.  This time I'm ready.....



I used Stamplorations Crazy Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the background panel.  I started by cutting three panels, but it was getting bulky with all those layers, so I just cut all three dies from one panel so it's a single inlaid layer.  Little bit of fun jigging it all back together again LOL.  Then, since it's a fall theme I smeared Ripe Persimmon all over.  I cut the smallest rectangle from a piece of chocolate box.  No chocolates were harmed during die cutting ROFL.  Love how this was nice and thick and I got some embossed detail as well.  Then I cut Stamplorations Coffee Cup Silhouette from the center of the black panel.  I backed the cup with a piece of inky scrap paper.  And not a stamp to be seen.........

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
