Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It is that time again, where all us coffee lovers and papercrafters come together for an AMAZING blog hop.  It is the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  Organized by the one and only Amy Tsuruta!  
_________________________________________________

Here is my creation for this hop.  It embodies my love for stamping, coffee and the Pacific Northwest (home of Starbucks).  Are you ready for it?  I am ready for a nice cup of coffee!



This card features some of the new Kelly Purkey/Hero Arts stamps made for the PNW.  LOVE THIS SET!  I stamped and masked off the sign and then sponged in the clouds with a stencil.  I then added my buildings, one is a Saavy Die and the other is just black paper with an impress stamp for the white dots on it.  I used my Lawn Fawn Stamps for the the cup, background stamps and Polaroid die.  It was fun to use the photo die as if it were the result of a trip to visit the Pike Place Market. :)  I stamped the cup on the grey and then used a little colored pencil and a neon orange pen that I own to make it look like a neon sign. I think the effect turned out good on both the cup and the public market sign, they truly do look neon to me.  I added the distressed edges and brushed black around to give it a grungy feel (another tribute to PNW and the Kurt Cobain era).  I ended with the Kelly Purkey sentiment and the Freckled Fawn enamel dots.  


That's all folks.  I thank you for stopping and enjoy the rest of the creations and all the amazing prizes!
