Java Junkie!

Totally-Java-Junkie-wm

Hi everyone,

Totally Stampalicious are having their first Coffee Shop Blog Hop today and I have been asked to join them as a guest hopper … as I love their stamps of course I said yes!

If you haven’t started on the hop from Totally Stampalicious’ blog then you might want to hop on over there now, I will wait, so you don’t miss out on anything.

My card today uses the new “Coffee Brawd” which will be available at MIDNIGHT EST Thursday, HERE! I know all you coffee drinkers out there will be able to relate to this fun image and all the wonderful sentiments included in the set.

I don’t have the stamp set so I used the digi version for my card, I kept the girl and sentiments the same size as what they would be if I had the stamp set. However and this is where it is fun that when you purchase the stamp set that you also receive the digi version …. for the coffee mugs I decreased the size to suit where I wanted them to go. You can’t do that with many stamp sets now can you! Oh and if you are a digi lover, you can now just purchase the digi version of the stamps if you want to … cool ha!

I decided to create a freestanding pop up card, these are fun to create and it has been a while and seeing them as a challenge over on SCS this week reminded my about them. You can find a tutorial if you need it over in the resources section of SCS.

Totally Stampalicious is giving out lots of blog candy during the hop:

6 - $5 Gift Certificates
3 - $10 Gift Certificates
2 - Coffee Brawd Stamps Set
*Grand Prize* - 2 Stamp Sets and 2 Digi Sets - WINNER'S CHOICE

All you have to do is make sure you leave a comment on every DT Members Blog and YOU could win!!!! The Blog Hop ends at 9PM EST Friday March 12! Winners will be announced on Stampalicious Monday the 15th!

Well now it is time to continue on the hop, your next stop is the very talented and charming Cindy Haffner, I am sure she has something wonderful for you all to see.
