Then I heat embossed with gold embossing powder a sentiment from the same set on white cardstock and cut it out with one of the dies from the Thin Fishtail banners set.
I chose patterned papers from the Pumpkin Spice paper pad, one to cover the card front and the other to hold my coffee mugs. I gave this a lime green mat to harmonize with the green on the cups.
After popping up the coffee cups and the cupcake with 3D foam squares, I felt the need for another pumpkin. I found a smiling one in the Seasons of change stamp set.
When the card was all assembled I used a clear shimmer pen on the foams and added glossy accents on the pumpkins, topping and the straw. I love how it makes them super special.

Autumn really hit us hard yesterday with a 20 degrees drop in temperature accompanied with wind and rain. Sudden change in my mood too, as I immediately start longing for warm drinks 🙂 I hope this cute Fall scene warms your hearts.
To set the scene I also die cut a Fence from woodgrain cardstock, some grass from yellow cardstock using a Land Border die and a tree from white cardstock using the Forest Scene builder set. I added colour to the latter with Copic markers.
I chose a pretty aqua-yellow plaid patterned paper (Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Chill) as the background and die cut a rounded stitched rectangle from aqua cardstock using one of the Frames and Flags dies. I cut the grass also with the same die to have the rounded corners and stitching details. I love texture and stitching details, so I used the SSS Stitched Whirl background die to add more details to the sky.
I assembled the scene, matted it with a slightly bigger navy blue rectangle and popped up the girl with the coffee with 3D foam squares. The sentiment I stamped on a white cloud shaped speech bubble with Navy ink.
I used twine as embellishment, added a bit of clear shimmer and a drop of glossy accent to the pumpkins, buttons and the scarf.
For the last card I used a pretty background stamp from Picket Fence Studios, heat embossed on dark brown cardstock with clear embossing powder. I love the raised look and shine!
Then I stamped and coloured two little piggies from the Farmyard Little Bits from Hello Bluebird and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also made and extra coffee glass, just as an embellishment.
I die cut the Coffee word (Stamplorations die) 3 times from green cardstock and layered them on top of each other.
I stamped a funny little sentiment on a thin pink strip of cardstock and popped it up under the coffee die cut.
Quite simple, yet so cute, don’t you think?
I hope you liked my coffee/tea projects this week, and you will follow my creative journey in the future too. Next week is the May release week and Newton’s Nook Designs so get ready for a lot of fun!
There is nothing compared to the first sip of coffee on a spring day in the first rays of sunshine! This special moment (and my craving for coffee during Ramadan, hahaha) inspired my card for Newton’s Nook Designs.
To set the scene I sponged some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink on a white top folding notecard and applied Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink through the Sunscape stencil. Before removing the stencil, I spritzed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.
I die cut a piece of grass with a Land border die and adhered a piece of patterned paper (Sunny Studio) under it.
I stamped the sentiment in the upper right corner with black ink and arranged the images.
This time I kept the card flat and added only a few butterflies (from the Bitty Bunnies stamp set) and drops of glossy accents on their bodies and the mug as embellishment.
I started with applying Tonic Rich Cocoa Nuvo Glimmer paste over the coffee beans stencil from Mint Owl Studio directly on a white top folding card base. Until it was drying, I worked on the images.
I stamped the coffee cup, flower and leaves from the For all Moms stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I used my Copics to add colour and cut all images out with scissors. I used a black Memento marker on the edges to make them look perfect.
I die cut a stitched circle (SSS die) and blended very gently some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I adhered the images using SSS Craft Tacky Glue.
I also die cut the word Coffee (Your Next Stamp) from pink and brown cardstocks, layered them on each other tiny offset. The rest of the sentiment I stamped from the stamp set I used earlier on a green cardstock scrap and cut it very thin.
I assembled the card and added a bit of clear shimmer to the heart and the foam and also covered the straw and the heart with glossy accents for a raised shiny look. The glimmery coffee beans look awesome in real life!
I adhered the wreath, popped up the teapot in the middle with 3D foam squares and stamped the sentiment with black ink on the bottom of the panel. I gave it a thin black mat and mounted it on a white top folding card base.
I embellished the wreath with tiny flower sequins and added glossy accents to some parts of the teapot to make even prettier.
I hope you like my card and will check back later for more inspiration! It is National Scrapbooking Day today, I hope you find time for your favourite hobby.
I am so excited as today is the first day of the Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog Hop, my favourite of all. I have so many ideas but had no time to work ahead so i will do my best to squeeze in as many cards during the coming week as possible.
I started with stamping and colouring several images from the following sets: Thanks a latte, Eggstra Amazing Easter, Thank you a latte, Baked with love and So Smooth. I used my beloved Copic markers and cut all images with the coordinating dies.
While I was at die cutting i also cut a white circle with the Circle Stackables die set and a scalloped one from dark brown. I cut some grass with the Grassy Hillside border die and attached it to the white circle. I arranged all the die cut pics and adhered them either flat or mounted thin with one or two layers of 3D foam tape.
I stamped a sentiment on No 2 Pencil cardstock with black ink and cut it to a thin strip.
I also die cut long stitched strips from various Lawn Fawn cardstocks using a die from the Picket Fence die set. This is my most used set I guess!
To give the background some more interest i die cut the Stitched windy backdrop die from kraft cardstock and arranged the elements on it according to the sketch. I added some clear shimmer to the sugar cubes and emphasized some elements with glossy accents and a black glaze pen. I also added highlights with a white gel pen – my crafty best friend, Mona Toth is doing that all the time, so I wanted to try too. I like it 🙂
Finally I added Pretty Pink Posh Espresso jewels to match the coffee theme.
