Coffee card for guys

Hello Everyone,

It is my turn on the Pink and Main blog today and as the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is still in full swing, I wanted to inspire you with a male card.

I stamped, coloured and die cut the guy and the coffee mug from the Timber set. I also stamped a few pine branches with green ink and die cut them also with the coordinating dies.

I chose a pretty patterned paper form the Be brave paper pad and die cut a fancy tag with a Stitched Top Note die. I cut a smaller one from navy blue cardstock and arranged the die cut images on them.

The sentiment is from the Fall friends stamp set, stamp in black on a thin strip of orange cardstock. I popped it up with 3D foam squares an added some star sequins to the night sky.

After adhering it all onto a dark grey 4,25 inches square notecard, I added glossy accents to the coffee mug to make it pop.

I wish you liked my card today, i will link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Anything goes Wednesday Challenge and to the Coffee lovers Blog Hop. Until next time, happy crafting!

Falala – Hello Bluebird

Hello Everyone,

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 will link this project also to the SSS IG challenge (Happy Holidays) and to the SSS Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will join me tomorrow again.

See you,

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

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!

See you soon,

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

Today is the first day of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I am honored to present you my first coffee card I created for the Pink and Main blog today.

I love the Christmas mugs stamp set and designed a simple card pairing it with the Sweater Weather paper pad. I wanted a soft and cozy look for my images so I stamped them with Lawn Fawn River Rock ink. I coloured them with Copic markers using teal and pink shades. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

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!

Happy National Coffee Day!

Hello Everyone,

I am super happy to be part of the (Inter)National Coffee Day celebration with this cute little card I made for Pink and Main!

I started with stamping the images from the Pumpkin Spice stamp set and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

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.

I wish you enjoyed today’s inspiration, make sure to hop along with the participating companies for the chance to win awesome prizes! If you leave a comment at the Pink and Main blog, you may win a 25$ surprise package! Start hopping on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog to see all the amazing inspiration and super sponsors!

See you soon,

Happy pumpkin spice season!

Hello Everyone,

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.

I started with stamping and colouring the images from the Pumpkin Latte set from Newton’s Nook Designs. I used Copic markers and cut it all with the coordinating dies.

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.

I will link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes, Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge Capture Fall and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Something clear.

I hope you enjoyed today’s warm and cozy inspiration and will check back soon for more!

See you,

Coffee makes my heart happy

Hello Everyone,

I am back with my last coffee card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. It was so much fun to create all these projects, I wish you enjoyed them too.

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!

Till then, happy crafting!
