Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - It's Bean Too Long!

Are you playing along?  Amy Tsuruta has done it again and put together another fabulous Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  Time for some fall inspired, java loving crafting my friends.  I confess I'm not so big on coffee myself.  Gosh I ADORE the smell of it when I'm brewing it for company or DH, but the taste?   Not so much.  Give me a Diet Coke first thing in the AM or a cuppa tea and I'm a happy gal! 

I still love making things for my coffee loving friends and the Waltzingmouse Coffee Set is my total go to.  There are so many cute images including coffee beans, grinder, cups and pot, not to mention  creamer, sugar, and even a little spoon!  I love all the cute sentiments too.    I had fun making a background of grinders - I got to practice my stamping skills.   I used a stamp a ma jig, and followed a pencil drawn line to keep me on the straight path.  I stamped with dye ink so it was easy to erase the line when I was done stamping. You don't want to try that with pigment ink- I bet you're laughing if you've done that before.  And if you haven't tried it...well let's just say that your ink erases with the pencil line.  Not good!

I used shades of orange and brown for the fall theme today!   A little reminder for a friend to keep in touch.  Always time for a chat right?
There's still time to link up a design of your own and gosh.. you'll be amazed at all the wonderful sponsors Amy has put together!  Just click here to jump to her blog!

This is a wonderful card. So full of detail and Fall colors. I tried the Stamp-a-ma-jig, and just couldn't get the hang of it...the MISTI came to my rescue, thank goodness! But your card is amazing! I love the dies too. And your 'steam.' Very sweet. Bev

Your card is such a delight, Jeanne, with those wonderfully inviting coffee images. I think I mentioned I used to have a grinder similar to that, but have no idea where it's tucked away! Love the coffee cup...and the steam!
