You're the Pumpkin Spice in my Latte.

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing my second card I created for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop which has been running since Friday 15th September to Friday 22nd September. 

Since I ordered the Lawn Fawn Pumpkin Spice stamp set recently and it was sitting here, I might as well make a card using that stamp set for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I have had in my head for a while to combine it with the awesome tree stump from the Forest Feast stamp set.

As you can see I have created a pop-up card. I used the small pop up die from the Karen Burniston Tree Pop-up die set  which I die cut three times across the back of the card for my stump. I added the pumpkin spice latte onto the stump and added a piece of acetate to the shaker so it appears like it is magically been shaken into the coffee. 

I added grass from the Natures Edges die set to hid any part of the pop up showing under the stump and also along the back  edge a the very front of the bottom panel. 

I added the sentiment sfrom the stamp sets in one long line and die cut it out using the Everyday Sentiments Banner die set.

Along the top of the card I added a banner and stamped the word "COFFEE" onto the flags.

At the beginning of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Craftin Desert Divas offered this cute owl free, which of course being an owl lover I had to grab! So I decided to make use of it on the front of the card seeing both images were pumpkin related. I did add the face to the cup which is from the Lawn Fawn stamp set and also added the shaker seeing I had already stamped and cut out another one.

I always need birthday cards, so decided to turn this into a birthday card by creating a sentiment "a latte birthday wishes" (a lot of birthday wishes). The label and 'a latte' sentiment are both from The Stamps of Life and for the 'birthday wishes' I combined stamps from Avery Elle's Sentimental and Sentiment Too stamp sets.

I added Black Nuvo Drops to the eyes on both cups.
