Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It's my favorite time... Coffee Loving Blog Hopping time!

A new season is upon us and that means it's time for the Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Hooray! I just love seeing all the coffee/tea/cocoa inspired creations filling up the blogosphere during these hops. And since fall is my favorite time of year, I just can't wait to see all the autumn cards.

Verve is once again proud to be a hop Super Sponsor once again. We're providing one of the oh-so-many fabulous prizes up for grabs for those who link up a newly created fall themed coffee, tea or cocoa project over on the official Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post.  The linkup is open through September 22, so I hope you have a fabulous week of getting inky!

I'm offering our first ever digital set for sale in the shop! So many of y'all have loved our digis in the past and I've received so many emails asking if they could be purchased after they had been taken down.  I've never sold digital products before, and am a little iffy on how my current shopping cart will handle it, so please be patient if anything goes wonky. I did note on my test order that the download link appears right after you click place order. So you need to save it right then.  The shopping cart also requires you to fill out the shipping information, even though it's a digital product, so it can determine any taxes. If you miss the download link, like I almost did, just send an email to me with your order # and I'll hook you up with the link.

The digi will normally sell for $5, but is at an introductory price of $3.50 through September 30. While you're in the shop don't miss our 30% off sale on coffee/tea/cocoa and fall themed stamps & dies.

The download will come with a zip file that includes .png and .jpegs for all 9 designs. It also includes a printable PDF with each design laid out to print at least twice on an 8.5 x 11" page.

If you like to die cut, the pumpkin image and the cup with the wheat design fit the Pumpkin Spice Die Set.  The cup with the pumpkins fits the Happiness in a Cup Die Set and the cup with the flowers fits the Cup for All Seasons Die Set.

For my card I printed the Coffee Please sentiment, the pumpkin cup and an enlarged version of the leaf on my laser printer.  I colored with copic markers and fussy cut both the leaf and the cup, cutting a slit in the cup to tuck a few leaf sprays in.  The leaf sprays are from the Autumn Blessings stamp set and I cut them with the coordinating Autumn Thanks Die Set.  To make them shine, I added some morning dew Nuvo drops and sprinkled with glitter.  I did the same thing with the pumpkins on the cup.

The patterned paper is from Carta Bella and I embossed the cream panel with a chicken wire embossing folder. I tucked a mixed media honeycomb die cut behind and finished off with a bit of grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy the hop!
