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,
