Coffee Spills on the Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop! 

September 29, 2015 at 4:06 pm 43 comments

    
Hi! Hope you’re all raring to go and bright eyed and bushy tailed? No?

Maybe you need some of this… a coffee fountain! 

 
 Some days, I’m not sure even this would do the trick, although I’d probably have substantial palpitations trying to down such a lot! 

I’m joining in with the Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop hosted by the irrepressible Amy Tsurata.

I’m late to the party but it’s on until the 2nd Oct so still time to join and link up your fall/Autumn themed project. 

I’ve used this set from Avery Elle

 

As long as you don’t mind cutting a few coffee cups out- or actually, masking them would work just as well.

The little hearts in the set are perfect for adding a little colour to the scene and if you fancied making them cute, you could add the face that’s in the set too! I’ve used Fall colours for the hearts which links in with the theme! 

The spillage was just using some distress ink with water added onto an acrylic block and then painted using a water brush to keep the ink fluid
I got a little paint-happy and sloshed it everywhere. I wasn’t meaning for it to get quite that spilled, it even ended up in the left hand corner of the card too. 

 It was just like the butterscotch sauce all over my kitchen floor on Sunday.. but that’s another story 😉

At least with papercrafting there are no beautiful china jugs being smashed too 😁
It’s a great set- full of fun images and useful sentiments.

Hope you have a great day, and don’t drink too much coffee, (unless it’s the really good stuff!)
See you in a day or so- lots happening this week 😉

Do think about joining in– it’s loads of fun and there’s always caffeine fuelled inspiration aplenty!

    Only you would come up with a new and different way to serve coffee…a fountain of caffeinated splendor, indeed. I really need to borrow your brain someday soon. My unimaginative slump is continuing and your’s never stops. This card is another wonder from a great mind.

    Your coffee fountain looks more appealing to me than one with champagne. Chocolate, maybe a close second. Great card.

    I’ve got the “good stuff” sitting right beside me, and will head out to the kitchen for more in a bit, though maybe not quite a fountain full. Keren, this is a brilliant card! Love this sweet idea! And heck, I’d sweep those cups out of the way and just lay under the fountain some days, lol! Love this card. : )

    Is that a stamp, or did you do a lot of masking of the coffee cups. Cool stack and love the overspill to the other cups.

      It’s a stamp- and I just cut them all out and then stacked them- quicker than masking…or maybe not!! x
