August 1st Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to another fabulous month of the Blogging Friends Blog Hop!
If you are joining  me from Leanne's Blog or just starting here, sit back and relax and enjoy the awesome creations everyone have crafted!
This months theme is "Our Favorite Things" and I chose to create with the Coffee Cafe Suite. This was the first time I created with this bundle and I loved it! I even painted the coffee cups with real dried coffee and the result is heavenly! If you don't have dried coffee, Early Espresso ink will work just fine! It just won't smell like coffee.
I first stamped the coffee cups and band with Crumb Cake on Water Color Paper. I stamped the other images with Early Espresso. I painted the cups with dried coffee, each card will be different depending on the concentration of coffee and water used.

For the inside of the cards I tried the cool card fold called the Book Fold which causes the inside panels to pop off the page! Super cool! Of course I had to add cooffee beans to the inside of the cards, I loved how they turned out.

For the first two cards, I paired Early Espresso and Powder Pink together.I loved this color combo for something different.
The last card was paired with Early Espresso and Old Olive. I finished it off with the Copper Mesh Ribbon. I am almost at the end of the roll, so I can honestly say this is my favorite ribbon from the new catty!

I hope you feel inspired today with my creations. Please leave a comment below before clicking on my Blogging Friend Lorene's Blog.

What a great idea!!! TFS! I'm definitely going to try this! :) How awesome to have a card that really puts your senses into it by smelling like the actual stamp. So clever!
