Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Messy style +GIVEAWAY+

I'm still in the process of moving. Alllllmost done, just one more weekend (at least that's what I keep telling myself...over and over again).



But I couldn't miss out on playing along with the fabulous Amy Tsurata's Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  So I'm popping in with a quick creation.




Snicker - to make this fun creation I started with a layer of gelatos scribbled on the background. 


Then I smudged the gelatos with my finger, added a layer of stenciled embossing paste (I did a cool tutorial yesterday if you want to learn more about stenciling) and drizzled with Distress Spray Stain to messy it up a little bit. 

My card was totally inspired by the latest Fusion challenge with those pretty colors and beautiful coffee cups! I'm also linking up to the Seize the Birthday challenge - with the toppings to use a die cut (my center panel is a die cut from Winnie and Walter!)


I stamped a sentiment from the arsty Sketchy Coffee Cup stamp set and my very own Literary Caffeine-ations set.

Then I wrapped the sentiment in twine and put it all together. I just love the snarky sentiment!


>>GIVEAWAY ALERT<<

You could win a set of the Literary Caffiene-ations stamps! I've got 2 of them to give away!! Here's how you do it:

  1. Cute, cute, CUTE! Love those stacked cups, your twine accent and gelato colors! Great design, Becca. Good luck with the move. I'm somewhat feeling your pain with this window replacement going on 3 weeks now. Trust me...our home is NOT that large that we are working on 3 weeks! Hang in there and have a happy weekend.
