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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
My friend, Ashley, and I vowed to each other to attempt the challenges way more often as we both dig Lawn Fawn and each have a hefty stash of LF goods. So, in full disclosure mode, let me confess that this card is not my best.
The good thing about challenges is trying something out of your creative comfort zone. The bad thing? Sometimes, you try too hard to make it work and find yourself just going with it. So, yeah, that’s the story of today’s card and this challenge card.
Let’s start with what went wrong for me. It was the color combo. I found myself stressing way too much on the color scheme of the challenge and spent way too much time, trying to create the perfect background with Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy stencil.
And things kinda fell about from there as I messed up my inking (this is actually the third background I did, friends) and then got fixated on trying to cover it up. Way more fixated on trying to cover it up than the actual cute birthday scene with the Hay There critters.
So rather than talk about it falling apart and not coming together perfectly, let’s just say I trudged on, trying to make the best of it and ended up with this card. Not the best for me, but not the worst. Just not what I really planned on. And that really is how it goes sometimes.
Onto the next challenge. 😉
Thanks for stopping by, friends. I’ll be back again later.
Back with another card to share. Today’s card is a bit unusual but it was sure fun to put together.
There was a food-inspired card challenge over with Lawn Fawnatics recently. In ended a few weeks ago, but I still wanted to give it a go and make something with my Lawn Fawn food-themed stamp sets so I did. This is what I came up with.
It’s kind of a breakfast scene of sorts. I started out with the toast, butter and toaster from the Let’s Toast set.
Then I felt like it just needed some cute critters added to it. And I had a few critters left over from last time I played with the Hay There set so I pulled them out and added them to the scene.
It’s totally a goofy card but it’s kind of fun … and kinda made me giggle as I made it. Hope it does for you too!
The sentiment was actually created by pairing together words from both stamp sets. I thought it was pretty neat that they had words that worked so well together. That doesn’t always happen with stamps.
For the coloring everything on this card, I used markers. I borrowed a little inspiration too from Kathy Racoosin and pulled my pencils to do a little shading to the toast and toaster. I feel like it really made a difference. Thanks for the inspiration to play and try things, Kathy!
Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later with another card.
By the way, I’ve got a post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog that you might want to check out. It’s a super easy tutorial on how to make tiny skinny cards. They are a great way to use up your patterned paper scraps, plus they are a ton of fun to make.
It’s hard to believe it but I’m back with a couple more cards. Today’s cards include a bunch of farm animals from Lawn Fawn’s Hay There stamp set.
So, with that, meet Card No. 1.
I picked up the stamp set not long after it came out, but only recently added the dies to my crafty arsenal. This kinda pushed me to pull out the stamp set and play some more with it.
All the animals (and barn) are form the set. I created the little scenic background by stenciling a cloud background on cardstock and then adding a strip of green cardstock at the bottom. It would have been easy to just create a card with that as the background, but I decided to get all fancy-like and die-cut the scalloped circle from it. It provided a cute little background for the card, and it left me a leftover piece you’ll see me use in a minute.
So meet Card No. 2.
Remember how that leftover background piece from the first card? Yeppers. You’ll see it right here. I covered up some of the circle by adhering the animals onto it.
I created the sentiment by pairing together some stamped words from the Hay There set with a “friend” die-cut word from Paper Smooches. (Speaking of which, it’s a great time to grab some Paper Smooches stamps and dies… and stencils… as they are retiring.)
Anyway, I think both cards turned out kinda fun. And it was cool to use the background to make 2 cards. Totally two-for-one!
I hope you enjoyed checking out these cards. I’ll be back again later with a few more cards to share with you. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
