Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!




Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
Hello Crafters! It's Valerie here, and it's time for the Holiday Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop! And we are THRILLED to be a Super Sponsor for the great event! 

We are offering this gorgeous Tea Time Stamp Set to one lucky winner!


On to today's card for the Hop!...

I pulled out 2 AJVD stamp sets: Coffee & Jesus, and Pine Branches (for the "Merry Christmas" sentiment at the bottom).

AJVD stamps, Distress Inks, embossing powders {ValByDesign, 2015} 

The first thing I did was get my watercolor paper and my Distress Inks (colors listed below) out, and started applying the inks to the paper with my Mini Ink Blending Tools.

Using the process of selective stamping, then heat embossing in 2 different colored embossing powders (white and gold), I ended up with a very pretty effect. The last thing I did was add my ribbon at the bottom, and I was done!

I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out.  Hope you do, too! Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the Hop, and Happy Crafting!
