Inspired by Red Cup: Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I love coffee, and am excited to be joining this hop that is all about beans, after all, what is better than crafting and coffee! I want to send out a huge thank you to Amy Tsurata for organizing this, thank you Amy! Thank you also to the amazing list of super sponsors!!
Sheila got me started on "red cup" season at Starbucks, and now I look forward to this event with some of my favorite beverages every year! So, when I started to think of coffee crafting, Red Cup was my muse. First, I'll give you a glimpse of all the projects I did, and then go into a bit more detail. Hope you are enjoying a cup of java right now!
Cards and cups! I filled these little espresso cups with a yummy chocolate Santa for a gift exchange.
Red and Kraft - who knew they would pair so well? I used the Tim Holtz "Merriment" paper stash for all my projects. The stamps are from Stampin Up. I stamped on several different patterns and cut them apart to layer, popped up a few elements to add dimension. "Coffee and friends are the perfect blend" - love it!
It's fun to see how different a look you can create with the same materials.
I had fun with the little espresso cups too. I made a template to fit the paper around the cup and to make the little hat.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please feel free to leave a comment to win some blog candy! (If your comment doesn't link to you, leave contact information) Be sure to comment by midnight, Sunday, December 14...a name will be drawn at random to win.....
A $10 gift card from one of my faves, Starbucks! All hop winners will be posted by Dec 20.
