Happy Sunday everyone! I have a very FUN card to share today. I decided to play along with the HUGE Fall 2015 Coffee Lover's blog hop going on now. There are so many awesome sponsors, and page after page of fantastic projects being linked up! JessicaLynnOriginal.com is one of the sponsors, and in addition to the prizes, Jessica Lynn is also giving away a free digi stamp right now in honor of this great blog hop. I have used the FREE digi in my project today, it's called Brentwood Owl Needs More Coffee. TOO CUTE for words!!
Of COURSE, this is a fall-and-coffee themed card, to match the hop. I used fall colors for Mr. Brentwood, and I set the pattern of sequins to be "fall"ing into the cup with him. I chose the color palette from this gorgeous inspiration from Your Next Stamp (YNS #23) which has been on my list all month; so beautiful. The colors are also matching up with this week's ColourQ (#309) and a new challenge blog I discovered - Our Crafty Corner's very first challenge, a beautiful autumn board (yep, a theme here!).
This is an easy 1-layer CAS card. I printed my Brentwood and colored him in. Masked off the image and spritzed the card with gold and pewter Perfect Pearls sprays. I added the sequins and glitter dots, went back for some extra shading on the colored image, and viola! I'll let this sweetie speak for himself :) I'd use this card for ANY reason for a coffee lover friend of family member (and I have MANY).
Just a reminder too that we have a HUGE CardMaker Magazine blog hop going on right now as well, featuring images from JessicaLynnOriginal.com. The CardMaker Magazine team has joined us in showcasing Jessica Lynn's wonderful drawing style, and we've had a ton of fun hopping with them. Jessica Lynn has put up a $50 gift certificate (YES...FIFTY DOLLARS) to one lucky commenter. All you need to do is hop along with us and leave a comment on each blog. One random winner will be drawn from the comments for this awesome prize! There is still time, so get hopping!! Here is the very first stop on the JessicaLynnOriginal.com showcase blog hop (I know, 2 blog hops back to back, confusing...this link is NOT for the coffee hop. It's for the $50!): CardMaker Magazine Blog.
