Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop - Merry Cafe

Welcome to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my lovely friend Kimberly Van Diepen from the US, who I simply adore! 

Today the Artisan Design Team are highlighting the Merry Cafe stamp set. This is a really fun set and a great addition to your Christmas stamp collection - not only because it is super cute, but it's also really versatile and can be used for other seasonal events too. 
I used a combination of different stamps to create the sentiment. By colouring the stamp with a Stampin' Write Marker it's really easy to just use part of the stamp.

I made this card for a lovely girl at our local coffee shop who has made my (*very lame) 1/4 strength almond latte for the past 20 months since we moved here. She is moving away for a new chapter of her life and will be sorely missed by many locals - including me!  


Next on the hop is my talented friend Maike Beimler from Germany. I love her whimsical style and she seems to add certain soft touch to everything she creates.

...AND IT'S A WRAP! This is the last hop for me as a 2017 Artisan. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute and have felt so honoured to be part of such an amazing, beautiful and talented team. A HUGE THANK YOU for all your support and love over the past year.  I am still pinching myself - did that really just happen? I've added some of my projects from the past year - yep it happened!! LOL 

This past year has been loads of fun and I know next years Artisan's will blow you away with their incredible paper crafting talents. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE all of these ladies and I am looking forward to stalking following them on their Artisan journey next year!
