Coffee Lovers Hop | Card 6

Hi, guys! Back with one last card for the 2020 Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. So, with that, meet today’s card.

Just a fun little card here. I created the background paper yet again with a Paper Smooches stencil and ink. Sure miss PS! 🙂

And I pulled together some stamped images from Lawn Fawn and Papertrey Ink. Did just a little bit of coloring to the images. Very, very little really. Didn’t want them to clash too much with the background paper.

It’s hard to tell but I did add a little bit of sparkle with glitter to the fairy’s wand, the unicorn and little sparkly starburst thingy-bobbers.

Alright. That’s it for now. Don’t forget to check out the hop. Even though it’s ending, there’s still lots and lots of inspiration to be found. So many great coffee (and tea and cocoa) inspired projects have been shared! What a nice thing the Coffee Loving Card Makers have done for the card making community! Thanks so much, guys, for all you do to make this happen and keep the card making spirit alive!

Coffee Lovers Hop | Card 5

Hi, guys! Bet you didn’t think you’d see me back again today. Still playing along with the latest Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog Hop and made one more card to share.

Pretty simple but super fun to make. I had stamped a couple extra cups and accessories with the Thanks a Latte set from Lawn Fawn last time I used it. Had this cup and marshmallows sitting on my desk from that and decided to color them in and make a card.

And, so yeah, this card is the result of that effort!

I once again used a Paper Smooches stencil to make the background. This time, though, I took a Lawn Fawn die and die-cut the window out of it.

I could have easily used a white card base but decided to “live on the edge” and use a kraft one instead. (Wink, wink!)

That’s it for me. Hoping to get one more card completed before the hop ends. Still feeling lots of inspiration but not sure time will allow it.Fingers crossed!

Again, don’t forget to check out all the hop links. So many fun cards have been made. It’s just so cool to see stampers come together, create and share so, so much!

Coffee Lovers Hop | Card 4

Hi, guys! Still very inspired to play by the 2020 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Got one more coffee-themed to share.

Pretty simple card with here. Just used images from one stamp set (Lawn Fawn’s Thanks a Latte) on it, as well as the words. I simply colored the images in with markers and avoiding doing any really fancy techniques, other than doing some basic shading.

Created the background paper with a stencil from Paper Smooches. (Sure do miss PS, but I digress!) A little bit of ink and a little bit of cardstock… and woolah! A background paper!

Added a few little extra details to the card with pens (see the faux stitching) and puffy paint.

That’s all I got. I’ll be back again later. By the way, don’t forget to swing by the hop’s link up page to see all the great projects shared so far. So cool to see how so many crafters are inspired!

Coffee Lovers Hop | Card 3

Hi, guys! Inspired to make one more card in honor of the 2020 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Hop.

This card isn’t the fanciest, but it’s ok with me. Some days, it’s nice just to make a card quickly, allowing one to getting lost in the creative process (and checking out from life for a few minutes) while doing it. So, with that, meet today’s card.

I enjoyed making this one as I whipped out the little toucans (from Lawn Fawn) that I’ve had for a long while but haven’t inked up a bunch. Then I paired them with a few other Lawn Fawn images to make the little “drinking” scene. (To give the scene just a bit of glitz, by the way, I added some flitter to the cups, as well as the hearts.)

Then, I just built the rest of the card using scraps of paper to make background. I again pulled together a few different Lawn Fawn sentiment stamps to make the sentiment for the card.

Alrighty! That’s it. Such a short post… but a post. 🙂 I’ll be back again later. Thank you, as always, for stopping by.

And don’t forget to check out the hop. So many great cards have been shared already!

Coffee Lovers Hop | Card 2

Hi, guys! Back with another card inspired by the Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Today’s card has a Christmas feel to it! So, with that, meet today’s card!

I wanted to try something a little different with this card so I picked a color scheme I don’t use often: pink and gray! It was a good challenge… and was sure fun to make something non-traditional for a Christmas card.

To create the little scene, I paired together some stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn and Papertrey Ink (the coffee cup, which I’m pretty sure is retired). It just seemed fun to use the coffee cup as the tree base so I threw caution to the wind and ran with it.

Didn’t do a great deal of coloring here, other than adding a little gray to the bird and the cup. I also added a little gold to his beak.

The sentiment? Once again, I made my own by mixing and matching a few different Lawn Fawn stamps together. Always fun when you can do that.

Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later.

And don’t forget to check out the hop. So many awesome cards have been linked up already. It’s so fun to see how everyone puts their coffee (and cocoa and tea stamps) to use. Always so many great ideas.

Coffee Lovers Hop | Card 1

Hi, everyone! Super stoked to see it’s time again for the Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers hop. Challenging myself to make some cards for the hop this time. Really, actually challenging myself to dig into my stash and place! Taking part in the hop adds to it!

Anyway, here’s my first card inspired by the hop!

Just had fun here, pulling out a bunch of different Lawn Fawn stamp sets and mixing them together. Cocoa cups from one set. Owl stamps from another. A tree from another. You know, you get the picture.

I originally planned cover card with a lot of blue cardstock but it seemed like too much. So I just took the panel I stamped the snowflakes on and cut a squiggly hill with my scissors. The owls hid a lot of it, but you’ll see it if you look close enough.

The sentiment was put together by putting together stamps from a couple different Lawn Fawn sets as well. Always loving mixing and matching stamps.

That’s all I have for now. Be sure to check out the hop. So many cards are added throughout it. Always fun to see what everyone makes. The hop, by the way, runs through the 13th.

See you again real soon! Thanks, as always, for buzzing on by. It’s a latte fun when you do. (Wink!)

Ghoul Friend Coffee Friends Card

Hi, friends!

What’s happening? I’m back with another card to share with you.

Today’s card is a Halloween-themed/coffee-themed card I put together while crafting virtually with some of my crafty friends. Probably the not the best card I’ve ever made but it sure was a fun card to do that made me smile along the way.

So with that, meet today’s card.

A stamped Halloween coffee card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Like I said, just a fun “for fun” card to make!

Made this guy with a few different Lawn Fawn stamp sets: Thanks a Latte and Booyah. Booyah is where the accessories came from. That set is actually a ghost-themed Halloween set, but I thought it would be fun to try to decorate some coffee cups with it.

Things don’t fit perfectly, but you still get the general Halloween feel, and I sure think that makes it fun. I’m definitely going to take some time and make a few more holiday-themed coffee cards. This definitely made for a nice, creative challenge, trying to figure out what worked.

The background here was created with good old ink and cardstock… and the Cloudy stencil from Lawn Fawn. Such a useful stencil that kinda just works with everything.

Alright! That’s it for today. I’ll be back again soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping on by!

2020 Spring & Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop | Cards No. 3 + 4

Hi, friends!

Got a couple more coffee-themed cards to share. Just squeezing them, right before the end of the latest Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop!

Meet Card #1!

On a bit of a scene kick. Paired together some of Yetis (and party stuff) from Lawn Fawn’s Yeti or Not stamp set with coffee cups and words from a couple older sets from My Favorite Things.

It just kinda made me giggle when I put them all together and made this card. Excited to share it with a coffee-loving friend.

And meet Card No. 2.

I know, shock shock! Another scene. This one uses all stamps from My Favorite Things. I’ve used this turtle a few times but this is the first time I’ve ever paired her with coffee cups.

I think it turned out kinda fun! Again, looking forward to sending this to one of my friends.

Alrighty! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for swinging! And don’t forget to check out all the link ups for the Hop. So many fun cards have been shared!

2020 Spring & Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop | Card No. 2

Hi, guys!

I’m back with another card inspired by the latest Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.

So many great ideas have been shared so far. Today’s card is just an idea I got in my head and decided to run with it. So let’s get to it. Meet today’s card.

Flying robots with coffee cups! It could happen… wink, wink! 🙂 I found myself giggling as I made this card. I initially planned to make a cute little love scene with a cup of coffee and the two robots and then my mind kinda just took off. (Don’t ask. Just don’t ask.) And my scene evolved into flying robots.

The sentiment, which is from an old My Favorite Things set, just seemed fitting. The swirly doohickey majicky is from MFT Stamps, to, as is the coffee cup.

The robots and hearts are from Lawn Fawn’s Charge Me Up set. Not sure why but robots stamps almost always end up in my crafty arsenal. I always enjoy making cards with them.

I created the background with Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy stencil. Oh and I wanted to mention this. I use a lot of small embellishments. Liquid glue is pretty trendy these days for adhering them, but if you aren’t a liquid glue fan when it comes to embellishment, I highly recommend checking out the Micro Adhesive Dots from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They are really small and work well for sequins.

Alrighty! That’s it! Be sure to check out the hop’s link up. So many great projects! See you again soon! 🙂

A Pink Card!

Hi, friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been here with a card, but I’m back! I’ve got a card to share with you today.

A handmade stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

I created this card this last weekend as the result of a virtual crop with some of my card making friends. Kelly tossed out a challenge to make a card with pink. I decided to give it a go as I don’t often make pink cards and am pretty challenged by the color! It proved to be a good challenge as I spent a lot of time fussing about this one. (Hehe!)

The cups and stamped words are from a couple older stamp sets from My Favorite Things. The large die-cut word was cut with an older die from Lawn Fawn. I cut it four times and the stacked the words up to make one. Then I used my Copic markers to add the gray tones to it.

The patterned papers are just scraps from my box of scraps that I pulled together. I told myself not to worry if they were 100 percent perfect together. I’d be OK, no matter what. (Wink!)

Anyway, that’s what I have got! I’ll be back again this weekend with another card or two to share with you! Thank you, as always, for stopping by. It’s always a treat when you do.
