Coffee...Spill the beans

Wow, it's been a very long time since I posted anything.  Lots of physical therapy,  a couple of vacations, life.....it just got in the way of crafting....

I've been following a facebook group, Coffee Loving Papercrafters, for some time.  They have hops periodically and  I've never had a chance to add one of my cards.  I wanted to take the time to join their Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, so here goes.

I colored the coffee cup and beans with Spectrum Noir markers and popped them up with a bit of dimensional tape and put a bit of Glossy accents on the beans.   I used a Tim Holtz Coffee Time embossing folder, and the dies and stamps are Taylored Expressions.  A bit of brown and white Darice Twine completed the card.  I love the way the Glossy accents makes those beans shine.

Perfect timing for a coffee hop.  I just got back from Hawaii where I toured 2 coffee farms, one in Kona (a very tiny one) and one in Kauai(a very large one).  Sampled a LOT of coffee at each one!
