Happiness in a Cup of Tea

Day seven on the  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:
Copic Colors Used
I was surprise to read that today's entry should be "tea"! Not required though. Well, I love tea as well as coffee, especially the flavors that are out there for this time of year like Gingerbread, YUM!

I used one of my new stamp sets from Stamplorations called Coffee Happy for both the image and the sentiment. The white tag was stamped with snowflakes, the paper is from a paper pack from Moda Scrap, called Let it Snow, and I added a few little white snowflakes from my stash.

Forest Friends

This month over at Twisted Thursday, our sponsor is A Day for Daisies. This week's twist is Poinsettia. 
I used the image Forest Friends, colored with Prismacolor pencils, and added the PNG image over some free Poinsettia paper that I had from Stitchy Bear. The sentiment comes from Tim Holtz.

Cocoa for Santa and Carrots for the Reindeer

Day six on the  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:

Since it is National Cocoa day, I thought it appropriate to create a Christmas tag showing a nice warm mug of cocoa for Santa and some carrots for his reindeer. Of course, once I learned who Santa was, I started leaving coffee and cookies. 

The mug die cut is from My Favorite Things Hot Cocoa Cups, the stockings are from Joy Crafts; I made the carrots myself.

Christmas Tag with Poinsettia; but, Coffee First

Day five on the  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:
I created a double layer tag, so the top is popped up over the coffee mug. The die cut comes from My Favorite Things Hot Cocoa Cups. The poinsettia and holly leaves stamps come from a Stampendous set called Wrapped Poinsettia. Sentiment is from Stampabilities called Coffee. The poinsettia comes with matching dies, so this is layered. Both the mug and the poinsettia were colored on smooth brisol paper with Koi Coloring Brush Pens. Twine and Nuvo Crystal Drops finished off this tag.

Pug in a Mug

Day four on the  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:
A little tea and a little coffee!
I need more tags for Christmas gifts, so I chose to use Tea Time, a BigZ die from Sizzix. I added a cute little Need a Pug from Pink and Main. The pug was colored with Prismacolor colored pencils, I added some clear gel over the scarf and some Spica glitter pen in black for the eyes. the coffee beans are from a Fiskars set, and the pug and little tag were popped up.

Brentwood with his Coffee

Day three on the  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:
It may be snowy and cold where you live, but this is winter right now in sunny central Arizona. Lots of green grass and pretty flowers everywhere you look!

This cutie, Brentwood Owl Coffee Lovers, comes from Jessica Lynn Original and is free at the moment just for the hop. Wouldn't it be something to have a coffee mug as big as you are? I colored the image with Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils from Faber Castell, added a bit of Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to his nose and to the coffee. The paper is from Gina K and the edges of the middle layer are edged with Distress inks. Four button brads were added to the image before popping it up on the card.

Warm Holiday Wishes

Day two on the  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:
This certainly was a lot of fun to do. I started with some corrugated cardboard from a box and added it to a card base. I also used some on the sleeve for the cup, die cut using a Sizzix Tim Holts BigZ. Behind the popped up cup, I used some cardboard from a box of K cups, and all were treated to some Distress Inks and water sploshes. The sentiment comes from Lawn Fawn, the coffee beans are from Stampabilities, and the snowflakes, well I don't remember. If anyone does, please let me know because they are such a nice collection of small snowflake dies. A tiny bow from glittery twine finishes off this card.
