Funky Fossil Designs - National Coffee Day Blog Hop

 Hello there!! Getting closer to the end of the week and hope your looking forward to something exciting or maybe relaxing at the weekend!

Its National Coffee Day in the U.S. and there is a fantastic blog hop to celebrate. The beginning of the hop starts at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog where they give you a list of all the Super Sponsors taking part. Each company will give you the chance to win some goodies and be inspired by coffee-related projects. You can even win a $20 gift voucher to the Super Sponsor of your choice by leaving a comment on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog post!


One of the Super Sponsors is Funky Fossil Designs and they are offering a 25 GBP (Sorry I can't work out how to get the pound sign on my keyboard....) gift voucher from one of the comments left on their blog post.

AND they have 10% off everything in store using the code  FFCOFFEE10 for the duration of the hop which finishes at midnight Tuesday 6th October.

They recently released the stamp set 'Time for Tea' which has images that could also be used for coffee. I used it to create a card for a friend:

This stamp set has such good patterns on the images for colouring and the markers I used are my favourite colours and starting to run out...eeek!!

I started by stamping the images on white CS using Gina K Amalgam Black ink, colouring with Altenew Artist Markers and then fussy cutting out. I wanted to create a 'kitchen bench' scene and thought I could create a tile-like pattern for the background. Using Altenew 'Sea Glass' ink and a square pattern stamp from the 'Scandi Garden' set, I stamped the pattern on the card front using my MISTI. I didn't measure or anything, just took my time to line things up.

Once that was finished I added a strip of wood veneer CS (for the bench) and popped the coffee pot and cups on foam tape. The sentiment (from the 'Time for Tea' set) was white heat embossed, backed with a similar blue CS and put on foam tape, along with Studio Katia pearls.

I'm off now to start hopping thru all the company blogs and leave lots of comments. You just never know, I could win some goodies. My husband would say I don't need anymore stamps/dies but I will never have enough!!

Take care

  1. Catching up would be so nice. Especially, in person...however, that's not in the cards right now. Doesn't mean I can't love this delightful little number, though. It really is lovely.
