Do you love Coffee?  And you love crafting too?  Then you need to check out Amy Tsuruta's Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!   It's the perfect way to combine two of your favorite things!  Poppystamps is a sponsor for the event - that means that if you play along you could win a $25 gift certificate for the Poppystamps store!  I made a pretty shaker card to share today!
Coffee-Christmas
I started by creating a soft pink background with Spun Sugar distress ink.  I splattered it with water, and then again with some watered down Picked Raspberry.  Finally it got a splash of white ink.  I created a shaker using the Merry Christmas Tag.  I filled it with pretty sequins from Birch Press Design.  This sequin collection is called My Valentine.  If you look close you will see little hearts mixed in with the pink and red sequins.
Coffee-Christmas-Three
I stamped a pattern on the Morning Cup die using a stamp from the Flourish Blooms Stamp set.  I stamped this in Tumbled Glass distress ink and then added a shadow of ink on the saucer.  Don't you love that dollop of whipped cream on top? 
Coffee-Christmas-Four
The holly and pine is just two dies - the Greenery Bundle and Perfect Pine Needles.  I added some pearls to make the berries dimensional.
Coffee-Christmas-One
OK now it's your turn ! I hope you play along with the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop -even if you don't make a card it's a great place to get ideas for cards of your own.    Don't forget they have a prize up for grabs - you can get all the details here.
