You’ve “Bean” on My Mind

Hi, friends!

Feeling the card making bug the last few days. Back with another card to share with you. Today’s card is coffee-themed.

A coffee loving unicorn card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

A unicorn holding a coffee cup? Yes. Yes, indeed!

The image (from the Unicorn Ice Castle stamp set from Flora & Fauna) truly inspired this card. It’s Christmas stamp set, but that didn’t hold me back. I mean, hello, coffee. I could send something with this little lady on it all year long to one of my friends.

I created the background by sponging ink in a circle on my card and then drawing a circle with a black pen. To add some interest to the sky, I stamped some stars (with the Peek-a-Boo Pals set from Avery Elle) and added some dots with a white pen and white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The sentiment was created by pairing together sentiments from stamp sets from Avery Elle and My Favorite Things. Fun how they look like they were made to go together. A happy discovery indeed.

Alright. That is it for now.

Oh wait! One more thing! Speaking of unicorns, have you seen my unicorn enamel pin? I made him awhile back, offering him at Plannercon. I put her up in an Etsy shop. (You can also find him at Simon Says Stamp! and Doodlebugs. Both are wonderful places to pick up crafty things… and enamel pins too!)

2019 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 2

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2019/05/2019-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

Hi, guys!

Sneaking in, under the wire, with just one more card for the Spring | Summer 2019 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

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

Just having fun, playing around, with this card. The cups were created with the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set (and Daddy Yo Icons dies) from Paper Smooches. The stamp set is a guy-themed set, but it’s possible with the elements in it to make girl coffee cup. 🙂

My go-to colors for a “girl” coffee cup are pink and red, but I decided to throw caution to the wind this time and make a purple cup. It’s a color I don’t often color with.

Oh, and just for kicks, I decided to make the girl cup’s glasses seem a little more real by adding a few small drops of Glossy Accents to the lenses.  Just a fun little touch.

The words are from the Dude Sampler stamp set, also from Paper Smooches.

Ok! That’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by. Once again, before to check out the hop. So many amazing projects. Great job, everybody!

Spring 2019 | Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 1

Hi, guys!

Just squeaking in a last minute card in honor of the latest Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I’ve been busy with life stuff so haven’t had much time to craft during the hop this time. Such a bum dog. The hop always inspires me to get to my craft table… and play, play, play! But, at least, I’ve got one card for the hop, even if it is the last day! 😉

A stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this little card with the new Tea-riffic stamp set from The Letter Lingo. Such a darling little set. Rather than going all coffee like for this one (because the genius of the set is can be used to make coffee or TEA cards), I decided to make a tea-themed card.CLP_CupofTea2_teri

Did a little “old school” masking so the girl would look like she was peeking around the cup.

Totally last minute decision to add the sentiment to the cup. Originally, I’d been planning to stamp it elsewhere but saw it would fit perfectly on it and ran with it.

Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for stopping by! And don’t forget to check out the hop! There are so many lovely projects linked up to it!

Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 6

Coffee-Lovers-Blog-Hop-10

Hi, guys!

The cards just keep coming. Yessss! 🙂

I was inspired yet again by the latest Coffee Lovers Blog Hop to make today’s card.

I once again whipped out the Thanks a Latte stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. It’s such a cute set! creamtomycoffeecard1-teri

I stamped and die-cut the mugs, scarves and heart. I colored them in with markers and then set them aside.

I sponged some blue ink onto a card in a circle. I added the cups and hearts to it, and then stamped the snowflakes, steam and sentiments.

For a finishing touch, I added a few white drops with my white Nuvo Crystal Drops. I sure like it adds to cards…. and yet…. still keeps your cards relatively flat and easily mailable.

Alrighty. This post is short and sweet… and all I have. I’ll be back again later, gators.

Don’t forget to check out the hop. So many wonderful projects have been linked up so far. So…. stinking… many. If you love coffee, cocoa or tea, this hop is worth checking out!

 

Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 5

Coffee-Lovers-Blog-Hop-10

Hello again, friends!

I’m still on a coffee/cocoa card kick, thanks to the Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. (Thanks, guys, for inspiring me to use the stuff in my crafty stash of goods!)

Today’s card features the Mug Hugs stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. It’s such a cute set of stamps.

CupofCheerCard1-teir

I simply stamped the cup twice on white cardstock and stamped a snowflake on each cup. I colored them in with markers and then fussy cut them out.

I die-cut the rounded rectangle with a die from My Favorite Things. I sponged some ink onto it and stamped the words, hearts and snowflakes onto it. I added a little color with markers and then popped some holes in the panel with the small circle punch on Crop-a-Dile tool.CupofCheerCard2-teir

I put some patterned paper on the card and added the rectangle. And then…. magic happened again! I squirted some drops of Glossy Accents right over the holes. When it dried, I ended up with a pretty cool look!

Alright. That’s it for today.

Don’t forget to check out the hop (and, maybe, link up some cards of your own). So many fun projects to see!

Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Hop – 3 & 4

Coffee-Lovers-Blog-Hop-10

Hi, guys!

Back again with a couple more cards inspired by the Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Maybe a month or so ago, I pulled all my coffee, tea and cocoa stamps from my various stamp bins and put them all together. I’m so thankful for this challenge as it’s given me a reason to use those stamps, which I was kinda surprised to see how many I had amassed over time.

WarmWishesCupChalkCard1-teri

I really wanted to make a chalkboard inspired card so I pulled out the Warm Wishes stamp from Neat & Tangled. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on a panel die-cut from white cardstock. And then, the magic happened. I slowly applied black ink to the panel with a sponge. It is amazing. The more ink you add, the more chalky it looks. But the white background helps keep it feeling chalkboard’ish.

Once I covered the panel with ink, I buffed the embossed image with a paper towel and spritz on some diluted white paint (with a spray bottle).

WarmWishesCupChalkCard2-teri

I wanted more of a rustic feel for this card so I used a bunch of paper scraps with a more vintage feel.

I liked the card so much that I made a second one. This time, I went with a blue color scheme.

WarmWishesCupblueCard1-teri

One thing I did a little different was add a few drops of Glossy Accents to the Warm Wishes panel and dump some glass glitter on to them.

WarmWishesCupblueCard2-teri

I kinda sorta dig the look. Definitely going to do that again before Winter is over on a few cards. 🙂

Alright! That is it for me today.

Don’t forget to check out the hop if you haven’t already. So many awesome projects have been uploaded so far. Great job, guys! The hop runs through the 7th.

Be back again tomorrow.

Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop – 2

Hi, guys!

I couldn’t help myself. I was inspired by the Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop make another card to share with you.

Meet today’s card.

HappyWarmWishesMugsCard-teri

Today’s card is on the fun side. I pulled out the Thanks a Latte stamp set (and dies) from Lawn Fawn. Not only are the cups ADORABLE, but there are little face stamps you can stamp on them. I just love giving a cup that extra pop of silly personality.

HappyWarmWishesMugsCard-2teri

The texture background for my card was created with the Cable Knit embossing folder from Sunny Studio Stamps. It felt like it was just a good background to use with these warm Winter drinks.

Alright! That is it for me for now. I hope to make another project or two to share and link up to the hop before it ends.

By the way, don’t forget to swing by the hop post to see all the projects that have been linked up so far. So many fun coffee, tea and cocoa-themed cards.
