Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop – Clear & Simple ‘My Most Favorite’ Card

Welcome to yet another day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

Leftovers! I always end up with a gazillion of them and most of them get tossed into a box to make up ‘someday’. I’ve looked carefully at my calendar and ‘Someday’ just wasn’t put on there this year. Huh! So I decided to ‘Carpe’ dem leftovers from THIS card a couple of days ago and use them up TODAY. : )

See the ‘steam’ and the butterfly? They’re from the cutaways from the diecut heart doily on that previous card. I just ran a gray copic over them and put some sparkle on the butterfly and they make great accents! And that teapot/coffee pot? Sometimes you have something you want to use and the colors just don’t match up. (See pic below for before and after.) I just pressed it into Versamark ink, poured copper embossing powder over it and heat embossed it. I had to do it twice and then use a marker to draw in a couple of lines, but I love how it turned out!

Supplies used:

  • Clear & Simple Stamps Tea Kettle & ‘Most Favorite’ (February SOTM) stamp sets
  • Clear & Simple Stamps Heart Doily die (cutaway pieces)
  • Core’dinations cardstock: yellow and green
  • Tsukineko Versamark ink
  • Hampton Arts Metallic Copper and Silver embossing powders
  • Recollections Neon Opaque embossing powder Neon Green
  • Copic Marker W1
  • Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle pen
  • Prima Coffee Break wood icons
  • Craftin’ Desert Divas Pretty Petals sequins
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Tape & EZ Squares
  • Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
  • Pigma Micron 08
  • Sharpie Industrial Super Permanent Ink pen
  • Misc. ribbon

Newton’s Nook Spring Coffee Lovers Friendship Card & Post-It Cube Gift

I’m glad you’re here for another day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!

This time I decided to make a sweet little gift set using Newton’s Nook Stamps. Their Inky Paws Challenge this month is to use this sketch:

Here’s the gift set I made:

Stamping the cube of Post-It notes wasn’t too difficult… just had to grasp them firmly so the individual pads wouldn’t slide apart! (they did separate just a little when I attached them to my background. Since I used an ultra strong adhesive, They’re not budging now!

    

I still giggle at the joke of ‘If friends were COFFEE (instead of FLOWERS), I’d pick you’! FYI, the backboard die cut is out of 2000# cardstock and I only put the cutting plate up to the edge of the die right before the pattern started again, so it wouldn’t cut the bottom. Then I took a paper cutter and cut straight on down 4 additional inches to wrap it behind and under the stack for stability.

Supplies used:

  • Newton’s Nook Designs stamp sets: Aloha Newton, Beautiful Blossoms, Beautiful Wings, and Newton Loves Coffee
  • Spellbinders Divine Eloquence dies
  • Post-It note pads (6)
  • Core’dinations Parisian Nights A2 pink card and green and white cardstock
  • Memento dye inks: Bahama blue, Bamboo Leaves, Elderberry, Rhubarb Stalk,Rose Red, and Tuxedo Black
  • Papertrey Ink dye ink: Orange Zest
  • Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens: 021, 026, 028, 040, 041, 044, 045, 047, 050, 052, 056, 070, and 081
  • Darice Foamies 3mm sheet foam
  • Simply Defined ‘Stacey Tape’ 2.5″ wide double sided adhesive
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L EZ Dots, 3D foam squares and Crafty Power Tape
  • Misc. rainbow twine

Papertrey Ink 10th Anniversary Celebrating… 2011 – Hi Sweetie! Cherry Card

Time for another card for Papertrey Ink ‘s 10th anniversary – this time Celebrating the Past, Present and Furutre: 2011.

20170217_pti2011

Since I didn’t have any of the featured stamps from that year, I chose Betsy Veldman’s card for some cheery, cherry inspiration:

20170219_pti2011

I pulled out my cherry stamp and went with cheery red & white. To make sure the ‘stems’ didn’t interfere with the sentiment, I hand drew them in instead of stamping them. I also got to use my new Swallowtail Tag for the first time…

20151218_074611W

A while ago I was looking for some free fonts for a project and came across these cute cup fonts at fonts.com. I don’t know if they’re still free. I had just colored the cups blue, but it was too blah, so I decided to make her lips red… hard to do over black, so I fussy cut a pair… then decided while I was at it to plant a smooch on him. : ) They still needed a little something so I added glossy accents on the eyes and coffee and just a pinch of flocking on his eyebrows and mustache. Oohhh! Now the steam turned hot and the card was done!
