Hot chocolate kind of day!

Hello Everyone,

Iam popping in with a cute snowman card which i made for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Fall/Winter.

As Newton’s Nook Designs is a Super Sponsor of this event, i wanted to use this adorable little snowman from the NND Frozen Friends stamp set.

I stamped and coloured the snowman with the mug using Copics and fussy cut the image. I used a black marker to run around the edges and make any kind of imperfection disappear. Then i due cut the scalloped frame from the Frameworks die set several times: a couple from white cardstock and one from dark red. I layered them on top of each other for a chipboard look.

On one of the inner pieces i did some Distress Oxide ink blending using Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass inks. I added some white paint splatters to imitate snowfall. It is a quick and easy way to add an extra touch to your cards. When it was all dry, i stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set.

I used the Landscape border dies to cut a snowy hill from white glitter cardstock and assembled the little scene on a piece of patterned paper from the Doodlebug Milk and Cookies collection. I gae it a light blue mat and adhered it to a white card base. As a finishing touch i used my clear shimmer pen to add some sparkle to the cap and scarf, some glossy accent to the nose and mug and a black glaze pen on the snowman’s eyes.

I will link this project up to the Coffee Lovers Fall/Winter Blog Hop.

Hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration!

See you soon,

Java Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone,

I am on the Pink and Main Blog today with a fun Christmas card perfect for coffee lovers!

As Pink and Main is one of the Super Sponsors of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, I wanted to use the coffee theme for my post today.

P&M_ChristmasMugs_zsm01IG

I started with stamping and colouring one of the coffee mugs from the Christmas Mugs stamp set along with the candy canes. I used alcohol markers and I die cut the images with the coordinating dies.

P&M_ChristmasMugs_zsm02

I also die cut a green glitter cardstock wreath using the Wreath base die, it looks gorgeous with all the sparkle! I used the same die to cut another wreath from heavy weight vellum to mute the background a bit behind the coffee mug.

P&M_ChristmasMugs_zsm03

I chose a pretty and colourful snowflake patterned paper from the Jolly paper pad, trimmed it a but smaller than an A2 sized card front and adhered it to a dark red card base. I stamped a sentiment in black on the bottom and adhered the wreath with the vellum in the middle. I added the mug in the middle using liquid glue and popped up the candy canes with 3D foam squares.

P&M_ChristmasMugs_zsm04IG

Then I added a bit of sparkle with a clear shimmer pen and used glossy accents on some parts of the images. I love the shiny raised look!

I will upload this card to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Fall/Winter and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you got inspired to participate in the Blog Hop and to make some coffee themed cards for the holidays. Until next time, happy crafting!

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.

CLBH2018_summer_21

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.

CLBH2018_summer_23

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!)

CLBH2018_summer_22

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.

CLBH2018_summer_24

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.

29541159_10216244462694822_8004581139974979584_n

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.

CLBH2018_summer_17

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.

CLBH2018_summer_18

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.

CLBH2018_summer_13

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 🙂

CLBH2018_summer_16

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!

CLBH2018_summer_14

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!

CLBH2018_summer_15

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

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.

29541159_10216244462694822_8004581139974979584_n

CLBH2018_summer_09

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.

CLBH2018_summer_10

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.

CLBH2018_summer_12

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

CLBH2018_summer_11

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.

29541159_10216244462694822_8004581139974979584_n

CLBH2018_summer_05

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.

CLBH2018_summer_07

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.

CLBH2018_summer_06

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.

CLBH2018_summer_08

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

See you,

Zsofi
