With all those prizes and the fact that I love coffee, I was up for this hop as soon as I heard about it!
I made three projects for today.  I can’t seem to just stop at one…  🙂



I am totally in love with these little coffee cups!  They are so cute and you can really dress them up if you want to.  I’m keeping it low-key though.  I die cut the SU joy out of foil cardstock which I think gives it a little pop with that retro feeling cardstock.


So Amy pinned a card a few weeks ago that used the Stampin Up Curvey Keepsakes Die and challenged me to make something similar and this is what I came up with!  With just a few snips you totally have a coffee cup!  It doesn’t show but the snowflake is cut from super sparkly paper and I stamped the steam and embossed it with Stampin Up Iridescent Ice and it is really pretty.  The sentiment is a PTI stamp and stamped with PTI Fresh Snow.


And lastly is my favorite of the day!



Can you tell how much I love these little cups!  I used DP from the SU Winter Frost paper stack and the snowflake is a gift from the wonderful Jen Shears!  Just to give you some perspective on the size of these little guys I took a picture of all them together.  The card is a regular A2 size.  These cups are small!



Now on to the good stuff!  Blog Candy!
