2020 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I'm finally joining this year's Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I made some time after my order from Frantic Stamper (thanks, Fran!) arrived just a 
few days after I placed my order. I was planning to use it for a future Coffee Lovers Hop
because I didn't think it would fly to Hawaii so quickly but I'm thankful that it did.

 Aren't those the cutest gnomes sitting in coffee cups? The dies are by Cottage Cutz,
a new to me company, and what I liked about the set is they were on one solid piece.
There are no dies to cut apart and all the pieces cut in one pass.

Everything was cut from white card stock then ink distressed or, for the noses
and the holly, colored with Copics. This happens to be a mini slimline card and I used
Taylored Expressions' dies which were the perfect size for three gnomes. Sometimes 
regular slimline cards are too big and I find myself trying to fill up spaces on the card 
base. Mini slimlines are now a new fave!

Thanks for stopping by!
