Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Hello, Hello!

I am a bit late to the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, but I finally got to craft yesterday evening and played with some new toys.  I really need to stop trying to get fancy with every thing and K.I.S.S!  This card was fraught with errors as I did LOTS of masking, but in the end I think it turned out OK.

I used two W Plus 9 stamp sets, a Christmas set from last year- Holiday Trimmings- and a new set,  Hello and Thanks.  I used the matching die on the sentiment, which I adore!
I created masks for all of the images, then put the mask down where the cup would go and stamped my ornaments masking them as well.  Once the ornaments were stamped, I folded back the cup mask and stamped the floral spray.  Next, I masked the floral spray and lined up the cup image with the cup mask that was still in place.  Once the stamp was ready to go, I removed the cup mask and stamped the cup.  lastly, I masked the cup and flowers and stamped the saucer.
I have all of my oopsies hidden behind various components.  Hopefully next time execution will be better!~
My background was one of those in a pile waiting to be used.  It was the perfect shade of red- made with Ken Oliver Color Bursts.
