Love You Latte






Today I am sharing a coffee themed window card.  It combines layers of cream, kraft, brown, and black with design from dies and an embossing folder.



The Water Ring, from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps, was stamped with Tea Dye Distress Ink on cream cardstock.  This was used in the background of the card window and also for the sentiment. 

The JFF sentiment, A Latte, was stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and layered on brown cardstock.  Small coffee themed dies were cut from the brown cs and added to the window and card front, along with some sequins.



Since the theme for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is summer, I thought I needed to add something more so I did a revised version just for the hop.  I  die cut these flowers, sponged them with some Tea Die Ink, and layered them along the bottom.

This is a great card to give to any of your coffee loving friends.

The Tea Pot Is On





I have been making several coffee and tea themed projects this week and wanted to share this sweet card. 



I am a coffee drinker but one of my best friend’s only drinks tea.  When I saw the “Tea pot is on”...sentiment, from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps, it reminded me of her and inspired this card.  It was stamped with Paris Dusk Memento Ink and layered on white using a Martha Stewart Border Punch on the sides.



The tea cup from JFF's Coffee Unmounted Sheet was also stamped with Paris Dusk Memento Ink on two different cardstocks.  These were fussy cut and paper pieced.  This was centered on a white doily, die cut with Marianne Design Creatables Designer Doily die.  Several small flowers, die cut with Sue Wilson's Camellia Open die, were added along with jewels.

When your week gets crazy, sit and have a cup of tea, hopefully with a friend.

3-D Coffee Cup






Back to share another project for the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  This project was recently shared with my local stamp club by a fellow member.  I missed this meeting but had a fun day stamping with one of my friends from the club and she was kind enough to share.
 
This is created from a simple template, using scoring and punching.  Layers of coordinating decorative cardstock are added to the various panels and the handle and base are created with oval and scalloped circle dies.



I added Distress Ink to create two colors of ribbon to create the bow and die cut a small tag for the sentiment (from a retired Whimsey Stamps set).  I just realized I need to go back and add something sparkly to the middle of the cute flowers I cut, using Sue Wilson's Camellia Open die.

More coffee themed creations to come.
