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).

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.

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.

Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop – 1

Hi, guys!

The Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop kicks off today, and I was totally inspired to play and make a card for it!

Here we go!

PeppermintMugsCard-teri

This one uses images from an old retired stamp set (and dies) from Simon Says Stamp! called Winter Warmth. The words (and the little heart) are from the Christmas Cocoa stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

PeppermintMugsCard2-teri

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.

Be back again later, gators.

Hi, all!

Back again with a quick card to share! Couldn’t resist making a coffee-themed card in honor of the Spring & Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I always enjoy seeing all the coffee-themed cards that are shared because of this hop.

coffee-bythebeanscard-teri

Pulled out a couple Paper Smooches stamp sets (Hot Conconctions and Cyber Cafe) to make this one.

It was pretty simple to make. I stamped the cups and spoon on cardstock and then simply colored them in with markers. Once I did that, I whipped out my scissors and fussy cut them so I could put them on my card. Yep. Nothing fancy here.

The patterned papers I put on my card to make the background are from Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug. I always love when you can mix and match different patterns together and have them look like they were meant to be.

Once I added the cups and spoon to the card, I stamped some “steam” and a heart. I also stamped the sentiment right onto the card.

I finished the card off with a few dots or drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Always a good finishing touch.

Alright! That’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for bopping on by!

Today’s Card (1-19)

Hi guys!

I’m back with another card to share with you!

Meet today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this guy with the new Breakfast Puns stamp set. My friend, Mendi, just released it along with a bunch of other new products for Sunny Studio Stamps. She was so kind to hook me with up  a few of her new products early for my birthday last month. (Thank you, Mendi!)

I couldn’t resist making a quick card with this little coffee cup. Happy face + coffee  = can’t go wrong in my world.

MissYouLatteCard-Teri

Cut the banners and rectangle with a couple dies from My Favorite Things. And the patterned papers are just from my scrap box. Really trying to use my scraps, rather than hoard them, get frustrated to have so many and then recycle them so I can start fresh…. wink.  Can you relate?

Added a few extra dots to the card with some red enamel dots (from Simple Stories) and my trusty bottle of white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Those white dots are kinda of light, but they are there. You are going to have to trust me!

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