Squeezing in one last card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Had this little coffee image from Art Impressions sitting on my desk since last week. It was all colored up and good to go so I ran with it and slapped together this little card.
The lady kinda of reminds me of some of the sweet ladies my mom and grandma used to bowl with it for years and years. 🙂 Some of the nicest ladies around.
The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set I designed called Sassy Coffee.
It was tough picking which phrase to use. I do like cards with a sassy feel.
Alrighty! Short and sweet this post shall be! Thanks, as always, guys, for stopping by! I appreciate the visits and your kindness!
Me again. Back with another card! Today’s card is a two-fer!
I made with because of my annual Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley! But it was also inspired by the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
So meet today’s card.
Created the mug of goodness with the help of the Mug Hugs stamp set from Sunny Studio stamps. Did a little masking so I could make it look like the candy cane was in the mug. I stamped the heart right onto the mug too. It fit perfectly.
Grounded the mug by stamping a mask on sticky note paper, placing it over and it and then sponging on some black ink. I removed the mask and ended up with that little shadow.
The words are the bottom of the card are also from the Mug Hugs stamp set.
Once again, that’s all I have for you. Be sure to check out the Coffee Lovers Bloghop to see all the other coffee-inspired cards! So many good ones.
And be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her take today on our annual Christmas Card Challenge!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by. You are the best.
Hi guys !
Back on the old blog-a-roo with another card to share! Couldn’t resist making something in honor of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
So meet today’s card.
Just had fun here, letting the frame cutting die-cut lead me on where to place the stamped images.
The cups, beans, heart, steam and words are all from the Perk Up stamp set, which (in full disclosure here) I designed for Technique Tuesday.
I did all the coloring on the card with markers. I was trying to be all cool and stuff so I added a little shadow at the bottom of each cup with a darker marker and then blended in the color with the lighter marker. The shadow on the cups is subtle but I think it looks kinda cool.
I did the same thing with the coffee beans too. 🙂
I wish I had more to say to you, but it’s the end of the weekend. I’m tired. The writing tank is dry so that’s what I got. I’ll try to give you a wordier post next time.
But be sure to swing by the Bloghop to see lots of other cool coffee-themed projects. Always so fun to see what everyone comes up with!
See you again soon, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Back again with another card. Totally inspired again to play by the folks taking part in the Fall Coffee Lovers Hop! (Thanks, guys.)
So meet today’s card.
Just had fun here, again playing with a couple new stamp sets debuting at Technique Tuesday on Oct. 1st. All the images are from one set, and the words are from another. Both are coffee-themed. Yippee! 🙂
I wanted the cup to look like it had coffee in it so I only partly colored in the opening with a brown marker. And then I wanted to create a somewhat happy scene so I randomly stamped the steam and hearts above it.
I had a lot of circle elements going on with my card so I went for “circle gold” so to speak and added a few sequins to my card. The more circles, the better. 😉
Alright. That’s what I have. If you haven’t had a chance yet to check out the hop, please do. There are so, so many inspiring cards! Way to go, everyone!
Got a little card to share with you today. Saw that the Fall Coffee Lovers Hop was happening and I couldn’t resist making a card.
So this is it. Meet today’s card.
Ta-da… cha cha cha! 🙂
This card is a sneak peek of sorts using a couple new stamp sets I designed for Technique Tuesday and will debut on their website in the New Products category on Oct. 1st. I cannot wait. Both are coffee-themed. As a girl who spent some of her formative years in Seattle (Coffee-capital of the world, you know…. wink!), I can’t begin to tell you how happy that makes me to make coffee-themed stamp sets. YAY!
The coffee cup and beans are from one set that feature a lot of coffee images (all hand drawn) and some phrases. The words are from the second set that has lots of phrases and a few coffee icons. The phrases in that one are super sassy. Like super duper sassy. Wait. I might have said too much. Maybe. Maybe not. 😉
I colored the coffee cup and beans in with good ol’ Copic markers. Rather than three markers, I used just two of each color tone (a light and dark) and then did a little bit of blending.
Alright, guys! That’s all I have. If you haven’t checked out the hop, do check it out. Lots of fun projects.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
