Seize the day – CLBH #6

Good morning Everyone,

It is time for my last entry for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I enjoyed creating these cards so much, all my other ideas need to wait till the next hop. I wish good times could last longer…


So my last card is a peaceful, really summery one. I stamped and coloured the yoga girl from the SSS Exercising girls stamp set, coloured her with Copics and used the coordinating die to cut her out. I used a craft knife to cut a slot for the coffee mug along the stamped line.


The prefect coffee mug I found in the Gerda Steiner Designs Monster fun stamp set. The coordinating die cuts around it so precisely that no white edge shows. It was perfect for the yoga girl.


I found a pretty beach scene paper in the Echo Park Summer party paper pad, cut it  bit narrower than an A2 sized card, gave it a black mat and adhered to a white card base. I stamped a beautiful sentiment from Stamplorations Coffeeology 2 stamp set. (Sherry really makes gorgeous coffee sets!)


A bit of clear shimmer and glossy accent finished off this simple but motivational card. I will hang it in our kitchen to brighten our mornings.


I will also upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you enjoyed my coffee cards and will return soon for more fun projects. If you like my art, please subscribe, it would make my day.

Thanks a latte,


Enough coffee – CLBH #5

Hello Again,

It is quite late here so I will keep this post short. It is my 5th card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.


I cut a strip of Copic friendly cardstock and stamped the coffee cup and critters from the SSS Coffee and friends and the SSS Stacked animals sets, without masking. Above it I stamped a sentiment in black.


I used Copic markers to colour them. I went over the word Coffee with a black glaze pen to have a bit of dimension and used glossy accents on the eyes of the bird and the hearts on the coffee cup.


I gave this panel an aqua mat and used 3D foam tape to mount it on a striped patterned paper (Doodlebug). I finished it off with some Studio Katia crystals.



I will link this card up also to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

Only one last card remaining, so make sure to come back tomorrow morning.

See you,


Coffee and friends – CLBH #4

Hello Everyone,

I will admit that I went crazy last night and made another 3 cards for the Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog Hop. The first one features my favourite brand, Newton’s Nook Designs.


I stamped and coloured the kitties from Newton’s Sweetheart set using Copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I changed the milk to be coffee in the jar 🙂


Then I selected some pretty patterned papers from the Doodlebug Designs Kitten Smitten paper pad. I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 die to make the tag and stamped a Simon Says Stamp sentiment from the Coffee and Tea stamp set on the top of it. I love how the curves match!


I popped up the kitties with 3D foam tape and added some clear shimmer and glossy accents on the straws, heart, ribbon and their nose. I used Studio Katia Satin rainbow confetti to embellish the background paper, the colours were matching so well!


I will link this up also to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.



Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for my other 2 cards for the Hop.

See you soon,


Coffee first – CLBH #3

Hello Again,

I am back with yet another coffee themed card. I still have billions of ideas just not enough time. I still hope I can finish up at least one more before the Summer/Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop closes. We will see.



So for my card today I used a stencil from Create a smile and added a rainbow of distress inks over it. I made sure to mask off a little edge on each side, so it is totally a one layer card.


I went over the stripes of the mugs with a clear shimmer pen to make it sparkly. When it was all dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Create a smile Coffee first stamp set with black ink and went over the word coffee with Glossy accent.


A few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished off my card for today.


I will also link this up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon again,



Our love is strong… – CLBH #2

Hello Everyone,

Another quick post on my second card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.



I had this cute retro stamp from Create a Smile, which I really wanted to use for a long time. I stamped it on a strip of white, Copic friendly cardstock and stamped the sentiments next to it with black and dark red inks.


I coloured the image with Copics an added some glossy accents to the heart, handle and little know on the top of the coffee maker. My parents still have and use sg like this, just in silver.


I gave it an aqua mat and foam mounted it on a pretty patterned paper piece. A few red heart sequins finished off this simple design.


I hope you like my card and will pop in again for some more coffee themed ones this week.

See you,




Sending Latte Thanks – CLBH #1

Hello Everyone,

A quick second post today as I am participating in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Spring/Summer and the Create a Smile Thank you Challenge.


I had a very simple and clean card design in mind, therefore I clear heat embossed the cup from the CAS Coffee First stamp set on a strip of aqua cardstock. I also heat embossed with the same clear embossing powder a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps, in the middle I die cut the Latte word with its shadow from coloured cardstock. I layered 3 die cuts on top of each other for more dimension.


I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and added glossy accent to the heart on the mug. I gave this strip a brown thin mat, adhered it to a patterned paper, which also have a brown mat. Then I mounted it all on a kraft card base.


To finish off the design I stamped 3 hearts above the mug from the CAs stamp set using brown ink.


I hope you like this simple card design, perfect for guys too. I have some more coffee cards for the hop ready, so make sure to check back soon.

See you,



Coffee card – IPC72

Inky Paws ChallengeGood morning Everyone,

I am back today with a cute coffee card for the Inky Paws Challenge at Newton’s Nook Designs. The new challenge is about Buttons. You can create anything, just add buttons to it


For my card I stamped, coloured and die cut the cute owl from the NND Sending hugs NND Sending hugs set. I love how the dies cut around the wings so you can slip anything in between.


Then I selected some gorgeous patterned paper from Doodlebug which matched the coffee theme. I used MFT Blueprints 6 to cut the embellishing elements too from matching cardstock scraps. I followed an older sketch as inspiration for my card (MFT sketch #139).


For the sentiment I used a Coffee die from Stamplorations and stamped a sentence from the NND Love and Chocolate stamp set with Gina K Designs Sea glass ink.


I assembled the card and popped up the owl and the cute paper button with 3D foam squares. A little twine and glossy accents finished off my coffee themed card.


I hope you like it and got inspired to play along with us. IPC #72 IPC #72 is open until 25th May 2018, so you have 2 weeks to link up your button project to be eligible for the drawing of 20USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Designs online store. Hope to see your creations there.


See you soon,
