Thanks a latte – Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone,

Happy International Coffee Day! I am so excited to be part of a fun Blog Hop organised by Amy from the Coffee Loving Cardmakers. There is a bunch of fresh and fun inspiration from wonderful designers, so just grab a cup of coffee and hop along with us! There is a giveaway too, see at the end of my post!

For my project I used some of the new release of Lawn Fawn.

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Stitchced Snowflake Backdrop die. It is beautiful on its own, but I had to so some ink blending: I used Prize Ribbon and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks and spritzed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Mist in the end. I also added some water and white acrylic paint splatters for more texture.

Then I die cut the cute Lovely Latte cup from light blue and from patterned paper. I used the Gotta Have Gingham paper pad. For the coffee I used brown textured cardstock and cut the eyes and the smile from back. I love that this die set has a “backing die”, which makes paper piecing so easy.

While I was at die cutting I also cut a few snowflakes from white glitter cardstock using the Stitched Snowflake Frame die set. I wanted to make it more festive so I cut the Christmas Garland die set from green cardstock and the ribbon from pink. I used a little bit of Lucky Clover Distress Oxide ink on the leaves to add some depth of colour.

The setiment I white heat embossed on black cardstock from the Thanks a latte stamp set. I adhered the strips a bit at an angle on purpose, it is more playful this way.

As a finihing touch I used glossy accents on the ribbon.

Sorry I am prickly – Newton’s Nook Design

Hello Everyone,

I am back with another coffee card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, this time I used stamps and dies from Newton’s Nook Designs. The message of this card is so true about me 🙂

First I stamped the images from Monarch and Cuppa Cactus, and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Then I die cut a pink stithced circle usung the Circle frames die set and backed it with a light yellow circle (Pink and Main die). I also die cut the postage stamp die from Frameworks from Doodlebug Floral-graph Rainbow Petite Prints patterned paper. I assembled the scene using a top folding A2 white note card.

I stamped the sentiment from Cuppa Cactus on an aqua small stithced circle (Circle Frames die set) and also cut the word Sorry two times using the Essential Alphabet dies: once from pink and once from black cardstock. I adhered the letters on top of each other in a way that it looks like it has a shadow, and adhered them on the card.

As a finishing touch I used clear shimmer on the wings and flowers and glossy accents on the body of the butterfly and the on the pattern of the cups.

I will link this up to the I will link this card up to the following challenges: Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge (Hello Spring) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Easter/Spring Moodboard.

I hope you enjoyed this funny card and will pop in again soon.

See you,

Love you a latte – Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone,

The Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is in full swing and I managed to make a cutie over the weekend. This is my first entry, I used Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. Let me guide you through the process.

First I stamped the images from the following sets: Snow Day, Butterfly Kisses, and Holiday Helpers. I used Copic markers to colour them in and cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

To set the scene, I die cut a piece of patterned paper from the Watercolour Wishes paper pad using the Cloudy Backdrop die and I also cut a white Stitched Frame.

I covered an A2 sized card front with a rainbow patterned paper from the Hello Sunsine Remix paper pad and arranged the scene. I popped up the bunnies with 3D foam squares.

I stamped the sentiment from Love you a latte in between the bunnies and it was time for the finishing touches: black glaze pen on the eyes and noses, clear shimmer pen on the butterflies and mugs and finally a drop of glossy accents in the flower centres.

I will ink this up to the following challenges: Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge (Hello Spring)

I hope you enjoyed this cute Spring coffee scene and will pop in again soon for more!

See you soon,

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – DAY 4

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is nnd_jan21_releaseicon.jpg

Hello Everyone,

It is the final day of the Newton’s Nook Designs January Release reveals but we still have 2 super cute sets to show you: Love cafe and Newton’s Mug are both smaller sets and come with matching die sets.

All products will be available on Friday, 22/01/2021!

CARD 1

For my first card I have stamped the Love Cafe mugs with black hybrid ink so I could colour with my Copics. I also stamped the coffee beans with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink several times and heat embossed thm with clear embossing powder. I just love the shiny look.

Then I die cut the postage stamp die from Frameworks from kraft cardstock and another one from pattered paper. I cut the latter down to be a strip on the bottom of my card and added a very thin strip of pink glitter paper on the top of it before popping up the images with 3D foam squares.

The sentiment I stamped with Lucky Clover Distress Oxide and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I used the steam hearts as embellishments and covered the decoration on the mugs with clear shimmer and glossy accents too. I also stamped another sentiment from the set directly on the patterned paper, I love the playful fonts so much!

CARD 2

On my second card I used paper piecing which I have not done in a while. I stamped Newton’s Mug on white Copic friendly cardstock and another time on patterned paper (Echo Park Coffee and Friends). I coloured the kitty with Copics and fussy cut the mug out from the patterend paper directly at the black outline. I adhered it on the white cup and added shading with a warm grey Copic marker. The result is stunning and it took less time than if I coloured it myself.

I used the Fancy Edges Tag die set and cut the base from cream cardstock and vellum. The topper I cut from light green and the reinforcer from brown cardstock. I also added a bit of kraft to the bottom to serve as a table and it also makes the vellum tag sturdier.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a stitched brown circle from Circle Frames and I also die cut another patterned paper from the same paper pack with the scalloped rectangle from Frames and Flags.

I assembled the card on a kraft card base and used natural twine for the tag as embellishment. No shimmer this time but I added glossy accents to the nose of the kitty and to the coffee beans.

Hug in a mug – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello everyone,

Today is my turn on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog with this warm and wintery coffee card. In this chilly weather we are all longing for our favourite hot drinks and good talks. Now that we are all socially apart from our friends, it is so important to send a little love in other ways. That feeling inspired my card today.

I created a colourful background first on Bristol Smooth paper with the Mugs stencil: I used Distress Oxide inks with a small blending brush which allowed me to add colour to each mug individually. I used Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers with Cracked Pistachio. Before removing the stencil I carefully spritzed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz and let it dry.

I cut it down with my favourite die from Frameworks and added some black and blue splatters. Then I cut my sentiment letters with the Essential Alphabet dies from coloured cardstock and adhered them on a piece of vellum. I adorned it with some pine leaves and a purple glittery bow (Pines and Holly die set).

After popping the panel up on a light grey cardstock I added glossy accents to some details on the mugs and also on the bow.

I hope it made your heart warm and I inspired you.

See you soon,

Warm Hugs – Simon Says Stamp

Hello Dears,

It is so late here in Hungary but I needed a break from playing board games and lego. I miss crafting but when I feel my mojo is lost, I enjoy simply die cutting. Simon Says Stamp has the most gorgeous dies and I was playing with a couple of snowflakes, a pretty filigree cup and a lovely sentiment. Let me guide you through the process.

First I die cut the SSS Filigree Teacup die from heavy weight white cardstock and backed it with green glitter cardstock. As it does not cut around the cup shape, I used my scissors to cut it out.

Then I die cut the Warm Hugs sentiment from green cardstock 3 times and layered them on top of each other. The shadow die I cut from white cardstock. While I was at die cutting I also made 2 snowflakes with the Daphne snowflakes die using pearlescent white cardstock from my stash.

For the background I used a simple stitched rectangle which I cut from Fog cardstock, I love how it balances the cool tone of the green I chose.

I assembled the card using 3D foam squares behind the cup to make it pop and scattered a few white pearls all around. Such an easy design but still so pretty. I hope you like it!

I am uploading this to the Coffee Loving Papercrafters International Tea Day Challenge and also to SSS Wednesday Challenge Sparkle and Shine.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and you will try to make a fully die cut card too.

See you soon,

Zsofi

Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – card #2

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a coffee themed Christmas card for the ongoing Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

This time I used stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird.

I stamped and coloured the cute little critters from Hello Bluebird Cocoa Party set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

The sentiment I stamped with Catherine Pooler inks, my new favourite for stamping sentiments. There is a coordinating die for this too, I love that!

I also die cut the Winter Woods Overlay two times: once from white and once from dark grey cardstock. While I was at die cutting I cut a few little Frosty Snowflakes from white glitter cardstock.

On a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I applied Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink with my favourite Ergonomic Blender Brush from Pink and Main and added diluted ink and white ink splatters for a textured night sky. I dried it with my heat tool and added the white overlay first. Then I cut the snowbank part off the grey one and added it on top of the white one. Dimensional look in a blink of an eye.

I popped up the images, added the sentiment – another one I stamped under it with black ink – and placed the snowflakes. I found the perfect little snowflakes in my sequins container, I added a bunch of them too. A bit of glossy accents on the mugs and black glaze pen on the noses and eyes finished it off.

I will also upload this for the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge as there is a Holiday theme.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration too. I have more to come, so subsrcibe to my blog not to miss them. Thank you for your support!

See you soon,

Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – card #1

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy that my favourite event, the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is on! I love to make coffee themed cards and I was looking for this inspiration week so much!

This is my first card for the hop, created with Lawn Fawn goodies.

I started with the new Outside Stitched Mug die and cut it from teal cardstock. I ued Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink on the edges to add some shading. Then using the new Snowflake Trio stencil and Gina K Designs Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel I added a sparkly pattern to the mug.

I chose a couple of the Stitched Snowflakes dies to cut from Peacock cardstock and white glitter cardstock. I also die cu the Sweet die 3 times, stuck them together and added an ombre effect with Peacock Feathers Distress ink.

For the background I chose a plaid pattern from an older Lawn Fawn paper pad, shaded the edges with the same ink and assembled the card as on the picture. I used 3D foam tape to pop up the mug.

I decided to have an additional sentiment which is from the Simply Summer Sentiments set which I white heat embossed on dark grey cardstock. I used an Everday Sentiment Banner die to cut it out and popped it up with 3D foam squares. In this way the Sweet sentiment I could adhere on top of the mug and got some support from the banner too. So dimensional, I love it!

I wish you like my first coffee card, stay tuned for more!

See you,

I stamped the sentiment above the girl using a teal Catherine Pooler ink.

I used liquid glue and 3D foam squares to assemble the scene and added some orange twine on the top of the card.

I finished it off with some glossy accents on the coffee lids, scarf and rain boots. I love the shiny finish so much! I also used a black glaze pen on the buttons, so they pop!

Marshmallows & cocoa – Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone,

I am back with my last card for this year’s Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog Hop. I have so many adorable Lawn Fawn sets that I simply had to make a springy card with them.

I combined several sets to create my scene: Party Panda, Fairy friends. Gleeful Gardens, Holiday helpers and Thanks a latte. I stamped the images on white alcohol ink friendly cardstock and coloured all the images with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I used the Stitched cloudy backdrop die on a patterned paper from Watercolour wishes. I also cut grass with the grassy hillside border die and created a white frame for the scene using a Stitched rectangle frames die.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a very thin stripe of black cardstock and adhered it to the frame from inside.

When assembling the scene I used liquid glue and 3D foam squares to get dimension. I love to layer my scenes, it is so fun!

For the background I chose a matching patterned paper from Perfectly plaid. A few clear sequins, googly eyes and a bit of clear shimmer on the flowers finished it off. I also added glossy accents to the mug and the nose of the panda.

I hope you enjoyed my coffee themed cards this week and you will keep checking back for more fun projects! I will also upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

Hugs,

Zsofi
