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!
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!
Back again with another caffeine-inspired card. Super happy to be linking it up the latest Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop too! (So many great projects have been shared so far! Great job everyone!)
Created this card with the Caffeinated stamp set from Paper Smooches. I had colored in the tea glass and little fellas a bit back, but I never used on a project. Totally inspired by the hop to pull them out and put them on a card.
The patterned papers are from my big old box of scraps. Anyone else out there still keep a box of paper scraps? I honestly can’t remember the last time I picked up much new patterned paper. Have so much older stuff (but still dang good) stuff to use.
Oh and the sentiment! Created the custom sentiment by mixing together words from the Caffeinated set and the Caffeinated Two set.
Alright! That is it for me! Hope you enjoyed checking out my card! Don’t forget to check out ALL the awesome cards uploaded to the hop. So, so many good ones!
I’m happy to be blog hopping today with the Paper Smooches design team and Coffee Loving Cardmakers team today. We’re sharing some card ideas that are sure to “buzz” your creative juices… or maybe even “perk up” your day.
Without any more delay, here’s my card for the hop!
Ta-da! It’s a new card, created just for the hop. I used a couple different Paper Smooches stamp sets: Daddy Yo 2 and Hot Concoctions for all the images.
Thought it would be fun to dress up the coffee cups. To save on time though, I stamped them on patterned paper before cutting them out with a die.
Feeling the card making bug the last few days. Back with another card to share with you. Today’s card is coffee-themed.
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!)
Today’s card features the Mug Hugs stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. It’s such a cute set of stamps.
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.
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!
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nothing really fancy here. I colored the images in with Copic markers. To give the red mug a little sparkle, I rubbed a little glue on the heart and dumped some glass glitter on top. Easy peasy.
The patterned paper on the card? That’s some older stuff from Echo Park Paper. I kinda go crazy with stripes and polka dots papers because they are timeless and can be used right away….. or a long time later (insert: after I’ve hoarded away even more patterned paper. Wink!)
Alright! That’s what I have. Be sure to check out the link up for the hop. Lots of awesome projects have already been uploaded, plus there’s a lot of great sponsors taking part as well.
