Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 5

There are over 600 entries to date so it looks like everyone is 
well caffeinated and getting crafty this week!

For today's project I have a tag to share with you.
I was browsing YouTube looking for inspiration and I came across
a video from last year by Nichol Spohr. She made the cutest coffee cup birthday cards
and they looked so realistic so I wanted to give it a try.
You can see her awesome video here.

She made very large birthday cards with faux foam on top but
since I wanted to make a tag I chose smaller dies and scaled the
project down a bit.

I started with the Sugar Pea Designs Coffee To Go Cup dies.
I used Bristol Smooth Cardstock so I could do some ink blending
on the cup base. I used Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress Inks
and then spritzed with water for a more realistic look.
For the dome piece of the cup I sponged on a little Tumbled Glass Distress ink
to give a very slight appearance of glass.
For the foam on top I used a super cool product called a Snow Marker.
You just apply the white liquid and then blast it with your heat tool
and like magic you have faux snow (or in this case.... foam)!
How cool is that? I also loved Nichol's idea to add little Coffee Tiny Bubbles
from Honey Bee Stamps for that little extra something on the foam.

Here is a closeup of all that foam and coffee bubble goodness:

For the word "latte" on top of the cup I used the Coffee Words Sugarcuts dies
from Sugar Pea Designs cut from gold foil.
I added a red foil heart under the word because as Nichol said,
a little bit of red just pops out and I couldn't agree more!

For the base of my tag I cut out some vellum using the Stitched Duo 3 dies 
from Pretty Pink Posh. I've always loved the rounded top of that die!
I took  Gathered Twigs Distress ink and sponged it over a 
Gina Marie Coffee Bean Stencil to give the tag some detail.

And last but not least is my cute little heart charm hanging from the twine.
I used the same heart from the tag in red foil and I 
sandwiched my twine in between two of them to look like a charm.
I just love that extra added touch!

I'm not gonna lie, this is probably my most favorite 
project yet for this hop!
Thank you Nichol for the inspiration and I'll see you soon
with another entry for the Fall/Winter 2019 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Have a great day, I already am!
