Kerry Urbatch - Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Inspiration

MY INSPIRATION:  For the past few years I have been a big fan and entrant of the Coffee Lovers Seasonal Blog Hops.  There is so much inspiration within this Blog Hop that I decided to pay tribute to the Design Team.  I have selected one post from the 2017 Fall and/or Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop for each Design Team member.  Each has provided me inspiration for creating my card for the 2018 Fall/Winter Blog Hop. 

Amy Tsuruta, Founder and Hostess, demonstrated innovation when she developed the Coffee Blog Hop.  Her vision has created a firestorm of coffee-inspired challenges and merchandise across the globe.  Her dedication and hard work in keeping the challenge alive and fun for all of us fanatics in paper crafting and coffee addicts does not go unappreciated.  Thank you, Amy! 

BLOG CANDY:  In the past I won a coffee mat as Blog Candy and I love it.  I searched online to find that coffee mat and much to my surprise there it was along with others.  I have several new mats that you can win by random draw along with a Spellbinders die. All you have to do is link a coffee card to the Double Trouble Challenge, make a comment, and meet the guidelines for Challenge #16, click on below for more detail.  

(Starts Dec 3 - Dec 7) Winter/Holiday with some kind of Embossing technique "Dry/Heat/Paste" and  
Comment:  "What's your favorite hot/cold drink?"  

Check out Double Trouble's Challenge, Click on Frank Sinatra's The Coffee Song and it will pull you right into the mood of creating coffee projects and don't stop it at the coffee song...listen on.   

2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 5 - Card 2: My inspiration today is Kerry Urbatch's project from the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  This card was chosen for the simplicity, traditional Christmas colors, the glitter and loved the cup hanging from the twine.  Again another bow challenge...I think I'm getting into my comfort zone with bows.  

Instead of a snowman panel I chose to use a PML card from Tis The Season paperpack and fussy-cut around the fern and berries, and when I forgot to add the twine before the glitter was adhered the twine was the full length of my card, but I was pleased with the end result.   

Thank you Kerry.
