Hi, everyone! Super stoked to see it’s time again for the Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers hop. Challenging myself to make some cards for the hop this time. Really, actually challenging myself to dig into my stash and place! Taking part in the hop adds to it!
Anyway, here’s my first card inspired by the hop!
Just had fun here, pulling out a bunch of different Lawn Fawn stamp sets and mixing them together. Cocoa cups from one set. Owl stamps from another. A tree from another. You know, you get the picture.
I originally planned cover card with a lot of blue cardstock but it seemed like too much. So I just took the panel I stamped the snowflakes on and cut a squiggly hill with my scissors. The owls hid a lot of it, but you’ll see it if you look close enough.
The sentiment was put together by putting together stamps from a couple different Lawn Fawn sets as well. Always loving mixing and matching stamps.
That’s all I have for now. Be sure to check out the hop. So many cards are added throughout it. Always fun to see what everyone makes. The hop, by the way, runs through the 13th.
See you again real soon! Thanks, as always, for buzzing on by. It’s a latte fun when you do. (Wink!)
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!
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!

So enough hop talk. Let’s see the card.
This was such a fun card to make! I created the background by cutting several snowflakes with the new Huge Snowflakes dies. I lightly (very, very, very lightly) sponged sponged some black ink where I was going to place the large snowflakes and then added them to it. (Side note: I actually cut all the snowflakes from white cardstock and then added color with ink to some of them before I got to creating. Could have saved time by just cutting them from colored cardstock, but I decided not to.)
Once I added the big snowflakes, I added a few small ones, as well as a few white Nuvo Crystal Dots.
The snowman and fox were stamped and die-cut with the new Winter Greetings stamps and Winter Greetings Icons dies. I colored them in with good ol’ alcohol ink markers. I also added a stamped sentiment to a banner cut with the Vanilla Verbiage Icons dies. For good measure, I sponged a little black ink along the edges of the banner. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute. Hope you like it.
By the way, do you like playing with Paper Smooches stamps, dies and stencils? Let’s see what you are making! Paper Smooches has a challenge every month on the the PS blog! Be sure to check it out!

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.

Alright! So let’s get on with the project.
Created this one with a couple new products. Made the background with new Buffalo Plaid stencil. Simply plopped the stencil on orange cardstock and then sponged dark orange on top.
The leaves were cut with the brand new Linked Leaves die. It’s so dang fun. I cut it a couple times from white cardstock. I stacked them on top of each of each other and then used markers to add some color to the inner pieces.
For a little extra pop, I added some dots and lines with a white pen. I also added some white thread behind the leaves. Always love that look.
Alright. That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by! I’ll see you again.
I stamped the two heroes on cardstock, colored them in with markers and fussy cut them with my scissors. My fussy cutting wasn’t exactly perfect so I used a trick from one of my friends: I took a black marker and ran it along the edges. Easy peasy. And a super nice way to cover up the boo boos.
Oh, you might be wondering about the background! It’s one I made awhile ago while messing around with watercolors and watercolor paper. I added a couple stamped stars to it when I put it on the card. I used a colored pencil to add a little color to each star as well.
Alright. That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
Dropping by today to share a card created with one of Paper Smooches’ new crafting dies. I’m just so excited to send this card to one of my stamping friends.
The flowers were created with the new Stemmed Rose Dies. Rather than doing a bunch of paper piecing and all, I cut them from white cardstock and then used my markers to add a little color to them. It is kind of a tedious task with thin, intricate dies, but I think the results are almost always stunning.
Now, this card has a fun little twist. The die set comes with a mat die. Rather than matting the flowers onto mats, I used the mat die to cut a window out out of the front of the card. I placed one of the flowers inside the card, right so you could see it through the window.
One thing I did on the front of the card, to make the flowers stand out on it, was I opened it and sponging a little blue ink onto it. I did it softly, over and over in a circle. I also added a sentiment (perfect for my stamping friend) from the Fun & Flirty stamp set.
To finish things off, I added couple sequins. They are always a nice, fairly flat, way of finishing a card.
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back again later, gators.
PS. Don’t miss this post I shared over the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog recently! It shows a fun way to use foil to make a wedding card!
