For my card I stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I used Tombow markers to add colour.
I trimmed around the coloured image with my paper trimmer leaving a bit of white frame. I matted it with a light blue scalloped stitched square which I cut with the Frames Squared die set.
The background is a snowflake patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs, I popped up the focal panel on this with 3D foam squares.
As a finishing touch I added pink twine on the top of the card and used glossy accents on the buttons and carrot noses.

I stamped and coloured the critter with Copic markers and cut it out with its coordinating die.
For the tag itself I used the Fancy Edges Tag die set. I cut the base from white cardstock and from patterned paper (Doodlebug). I cut the topper from green cardstock and a snowbank plus the reinforcer from white glitter cardstock. For the snowbank I used the Sea border die set.
After assembling the tags, I white heat embossed the sentiment above the deer.
A couple of white gel pen dots and a bit of glossy accents on the nose and bow made it even cuter. For the berries I used Nuvo drops. The eyes are shining because of the black glaze pen. I finished them with thick green twine from Tonic.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. If you want to play along, please read the guidelines on Tracey’s blog. There are amazing sponsors!
While I was at it I also die cut a stitched square panel from blue cardstock and from white glitter paper using the Frames Squared die set. I cut the scalloped square from purple cardstock and some pine trees from dark green using the Forest Scene builder set.
Before assembling the scene I used a Versamark pen on the hat of the snowman and on the trees and poured WOW White Puff embossing powder on it. I heat set it with my heat gun, I love the texture it gives!
I also added a white metallic cardstock layer in between the scene and the purple mat. I can never have enough layers I guess 🙂
The sentiment I stamped in purple on a subtle checked patterned paper from Sunny Studio and added the focal panel too.
A bit of clear shimmer on the scarf and hat plus a bit of glossy accents finished it off.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and will check back later for a not typical coffee card! See you in a few hours!
I love the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop so much that I cannot stop creating coffee cards. I also try to stick to colouring every day a little bit, as therapy advised by the gorgeous Kathy Racoosin. Today’s cuties are from Hello Bluebird, one of my favourite companies.
I started with stamping and colouring some of the images from the Skating party stamp set. I used Copic markers in vibrant colours. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.
Then I worked on the background: I heat embossed the Snowfall background stamp with WOW white puff embossing powder on a kraft top folding card base. To make it colder I sponged white pigment ink on the edges of the card base – I feel the instant breeze!
To set the scene I created a snowbank from white cardstock using the Land Border dies from Newton’s Nook Designs and I also die cut a couple of pine branches (Holly and Pin die set) from the same white cardstock. I used Pine Needles Distress ink to add colour.
The sentiment is die cut 2 times from white cardstock and once from blue glitter cardstock. I stacked them together and added a white heat embossed sentiment under it.
As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on their eyes, a clear shimmer pen on the caps and glossy accents on the noses and cups.
I am back today with my second card for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop. This time I used an exclusive stamp set designed by Heffy Doodle for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPTEMBER event last year.
I stamped and coloured the images from the More than S’mores set with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I also stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and used a dotted circle die from Lawn Fawn to cut it out.
I chose a warm plaid patterned paper from Lawn Fawn as the background but I cut it tiny smaller than an A2 sized card front so I could have a dark brown mat under it.
I die cut a couple of leaves with the Newton’s Nook Designs Autumn Leaves die set from brown and yellow cardstock scraps. As I did not find a matching orange, I cut the largest leaf from white cardstock and used my orange copic to add the perfect colour to it.
After die cutting a thin strip of mustard grass I assembled the scene using 3D foam squares under the cute critters. I popped up the circle with 3D foam squares too so it has a really nice, dimensional look.
I added some white gel pen highlights and some black glaze pen to the eyes. I also used my clear shimmer pen on the coffee cups and added drops of glossy accents on the noses, lids, hearts and the sentiment too. So cozy!
I will link this project up to the Heffy Doodle FB Challenge (Autumn) too. I wish you liked my project today and will return tomorrow for more fun!
I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver Sparkle embossing powder on a strip of aqua cardstock which I matted with dark grey.
The pretty knit patterned paper I cut down with the largest from the Stitched Rectangle 2 die set and assembled the card on a white card base. The mug and candies I popped up with 3D foam squares. As a finishing touch I added a ton of clear shimmer and a bit of glossy accents.
I hope you got inspired to participate in the Coffee Lovers event during the next week. There are a ton of prizes to win among which is a 25$ prize package from Pink and Main! YAY! Winner announced on the P&M Blog on November 9th! Happy crafting!
