Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day Seven: My creativity is fueled by Coffee

Whew, we’re nearing the finish line, tomorrow is the last day for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  We have 51 Super Sponsor, lots of returning, lots of NEW Super Sponsors!

One of our new Super Sponsors is Karen Burniston:

She has a FABulous gallery of products available over on Elizabeth Crafts.   I was first introduced to them by my bloggie friend, Kelly Booth.   She is on both the Elizabeth Crafts Design Team along with the Karen Burniston Design Challenge Team.

Check out my card:
That big ‘ole cup is part of the Cup Pop Stand.  The set contains 6 dies which includes the cup and the steam which I used as coffee ๐Ÿ™‚  Seriously, that cup is such an awesome size, I stamped the sentiment from the Coffee & Tea clear stamp set.

So I managed to use the Coffee Bean Embossing Folder and tucked it into the envelope.  The texture is awesome, especially since I used a dark woodgrain pattern paper.  

Okay, now seriously…check this out:
BOOM!

Yup, I did that!!!!  LOL

The Cup Pop Stand contains all the elements to make the pop up coffee cup!  Here’s the thing…did I mention that I did that?!  Super easy people…and what a great surprise for the recipient!  I watched this video that Karen taped at CHA.  It totally walks you step by step on how to create a FUN pop up card!  I’m no engineer so I’m patting myself on the back but really, it’s Karen’s video that made me say, ahhhhhh…okay, I get it!  

TIP:  if you use pattern paper for the cups, like I did and you want the same pattern on both sides and the paper isn’t double sided, just flip the paper over and use the die on the white side.  LOL.  I was slow to figure that out.

Big Thank You to Karen Burniston for being a Super Sponsor and for Kelly and her tips ๐Ÿ™‚

I also have to do a big shout out to my BABY GIRL that turns 21 years old today!  What the heck?  I can’t believe it!  For those of you that follow me on FB, have probably seen this but the girl and I took my Momma out for her birthday in late February and I adore this 3 generation pic:


Being a Momma to this kid is awesome.  She cracks me up, she keeps me grounded, she is such a smart cookie and honestly, a pure beauty.  How lucky am I?  What did I do right?  I haven’t a clue but I’m super thankfulโ™ก (gah, tearing up here).
