Mummy Needs Coffee Card

Sharing another card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I had so much fun making this one.  I inked the background with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink pads and then sprayed lightly with water.  I used stamps, diecuts, inks, embellishments, and paints on this one...you know all the "good stuff."  The hop ends tomorrow so if you haven't gotten inky this week making a coffee card you need to get busy!  Get to work (or I should say "get to fun.")!  (Wink!)   My caffeine addicted mummy is also joining the Marker Pop Halloween challenge plus the C.R.A.F.T. challenge calling for Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving.

Strong and Hot Coffee Card

One of my favorite things to do is create funny cards using vintage images so when I get to make one using a coffee theme I am especially happy!  (Wink!)  When I went in my craft room to do another coffee card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, I saw a package of Tim Holtz paper dolls with this gentleman peeking out.  I couldn't resist having some fun with him and found the perfect stamps by STAMPlorations in my stash of coffee stamps.  I wanted to add just a flash of color so brushed on some acrylic paints.

Why She Smiles Card

I am sharing another card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today.  I have always had a special appreciation for Mona Lisa.  I have four albums full of Mona Lisa artist trading cards which I created plus those I have exchanged with artists from all over the world.  I don't do them anymore but it still gives me happiness to look at those albums occasionally.  So when I went into my craft room today to do my "coffee" card I happened to think of Mona.  I thought it would be fun to do a fall themed coffee card with her.  Thanks for stopping by to check out my funny Mona card.  She will be smiling at the following:
