Fa La La La Latte

 Hi Crafty Friends!

Welcome to my second post of the day. It's time for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I am joining as part of the STAMPlorations team using two of their new festive coffee themed stamp sets.

First up is a card using the Holiday Mocha Feels set in combination with the Circles Flexi-Template, the Snowflakes stencil and a sentiment from the Fa La La La Latte set.

At 5 x 7 inches, this card is a bit larger than the ones I normally make. Contrasting the warmest greetings sentiment is the frosty background following the steps highlighted in the Christmas In The Air feature here on the STAMPlorations Blog finished off with the fa la la la latte sentiment stamped into the frame. The coffee cup image was coloured with Promarkers, woefully underused by me in recent months, before stamping the sentiment. Splatters and sequins finished the almost retro look.

My next card uses the Fa La La La Latte set in combination with the Confetti #1 slimline stencil.

The inspiration was hot spiced chocolate with a touch of cream melting on top. This cosy cup image reminds me of cold late afternoons browsing Christmas market stalls, twinkling lights, Christmas carols ... I can dream ... not much of it happening this year around where I live.

i used my metallic pencils for colouring and a touch of Elegant Eggplant SU ink for sponging the stars and dots.
