Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and a GIVEAWAY

Hey peeps and happy Friday.  I'm so excited to be playing again in the Fall Coffee Lover's blog hop.  I love, love love this amazing coffee inspired hop and all the creative coffee loving (and other hot beverage) participants that play along.  If you're new to the hop, you can swing by the Coffee Lover's blog for all the details.
For my card today, I kept it really clean and simple.  I used the mini cafe latte stencil from The Crafter's Workshop and vintage photo distress ink to stencil a really cool background on some Neenah solar white 80 lb cardstock.  Next I used my stitched border die to cut it out.  To keep my image safe from any smearing, I put on a coat of distress micro glaze.  This stuff is amazing!!  I decided to use a piece of hot fudge paper from MFT and my Perfect Layers rulers to make a nice and neat boarder for my stenciled piece of cardstock.

I stamped the mini coffee tree from the newly released Perfect Blend stamp set from SugarPea Designs in tea dye distress ink on a piece of Neenah solar white 80 lb cardstock and then stamped one of the sentiments over it in hot fudge ink from MFT.  I die cut this out with the double stitched square stax from MFT also. I layered everything on Neenah solar white 110 lb card base. I have listed a product list below. (Some items were no longer available or out of stock. Items not available I have replaced with a similar item).

I really love how this background turned out. Using the distress ink kept my background really soft and once you put the distress micro glaze on, it actually softens it up just a little it more.  I'm also going to enter my card into the Wednesday clean and simple challenge over at Simon Says Stamp.

Since I'm such a coffee junkie, I will be giving away two gift cards.  One $20 Dunkin Donuts gift card because that's where I get my morning cup of coffee and my chocolate frosted donuts with sprinkles. ;-)  My followers know me so well.  And one $20 to Starbucks because when I need my vanilla bean latte I need it NOW!!!  To enter, leave a comment below sharing with me your favorite hot beverage.  For an extra chance to win, follow me on Instagram at mzdanajoy, like the post, tag a friend (one per comment please)!

Giveaway closes 11:59 PM EST FRIDAY September 22, 2017.  Winners announced Monday, September 25, 2017.  Have a great weekend everyone!!!
