Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Cool Birthday Gift Card Holder

Hi there, it’s Tuesday Tea on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. I’m sharing a bit of a different card today that can be personalized and changed for so many themes and occasions. It features goodies from Reverse Confetti which I just adore!

For this card, I die cut the Reverse Confetti gift card holder from white cardstock. Then I inked up the top portion with scattered straw distress oxide ink. I also die cut the rectangle that comes in the die set from white cardstock and inked it with cracked pistachio and tumbled glass distress oxide inks. This additional die could be used as a scene setter like I have here or you could create a window with it as well! This card would be awesome as a shaker, don’t you think?

Anyway, back to this card…I spritzed the panels with water and flicked black paint on them for some added interest and texture. Once that was dry, I stamped a sentiment from Ice Cream Social on the smaller panel.

Next, I stamped and colored those cute pooches sharing a puppucino with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and started assembling everything.

To start, I glued the gift card holder panel to a piece of white cardstock and used my scissors to trim off the corners. This way I can write my message on the back and it gives the whole thing more stability to hold the gift card. Then I added foam tape to the small panel and centered it in the top portion. I added foam squares to my image and placed them above the sentiment.

Finally, I moved on to finishing touches like black glaze pen on the eyes, glossy accents on the noses and cup and a little star dust Stickles on the whipped cream. I slid my Dutch Bros. gift card in the slots and this gift is ready to give!

What’s the go-to coffee place in your area? The kiddos seem to like Dutch here where I prefer a local place called Java Crew.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Tea Party

Hi there! I’m over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today for Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook. The most recent Trinity Stamps release was packed full of tea-riffic cuteness so I’m still playing with it and wanted to share this fun slimline tea party scene with you!

For this card, I stamped and heat embossed the new Slimline Tea Party stamp in black on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to watercolor the whole scene.

I used a Slimline Stitched Panel die to cut it out an added foam tape to the back. Then I die cut the new Slimline Dainty Scallop panel from gray cardstock and added foam to the back of that. I layered them together and then onto a white slimline card base.

Last of all, I stamped and heat embossed my favorite sentiment from this stamp set on white cardstock and used a banner die from Slimline Scalloped Panels and Banners to cut it out. I adhered it with foam squares.

I love this full panel slimline stamps that Trinity carries and this Tea Party scene is just too perfect for this tea loving girl!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – National Iced Tea Day

Hey friends! It’s National Iced Tea Day and we’re having a fun celebration with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers team! A few of us have created cards inspired by this fabulously fine drink and we want to share with you! So grab a nice tall glass and sit back for some fun inspiration!

For my card today, I stamped and colored images from Pretty Pink Posh Summer Friends and Tropical Birds. I colored them with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I die cut the larger Scallop Diamond Tag from white cardstock. I went back and cut the bottom tip two more times from white cardstock as well. Then I used a couple of Lawn Fawn dies to cut the top edges of those portions – waves and a sandy hill.

I used Trinity Stamps blending buddy brushes to ink up the layers – sand is Lawn Fawn doe ink, waves are Lawn Fawn forget me not ink and the sky is Lawn Fawn mermaid and peacock inks. I used liquid glue to adhere the layers together along with my palm tree. Then I used foam squares to add the girl and her ice tea on top of that.

For my background panel, I used Lawn Fawn bubblegum and sunflower inks with the Trinity Stamps Waving Hello stencil. Then I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 inches and went around the edge with the sunflower ink that was left on my blending brush.

I assembled all the layers with foam tape and went digging for that perfect sentiment. When I saw the one in the Clearly Besotted Spilling Tea set I knew I had to use it. I stamped and heat embossed it on black cardstock and adhered it with a combo of foam strip and liquid glue.

For finishing touches, I added some glossy accents to the girl’s sunglasses and iced tea cup. Then I glued down a scattering of boiled sugar jelly drop hearts across the design.

Products used on today’s card:
PPP Summer Friends stamps and dies
PPP Tropical Birds stamps and dies

Lawn Fawn Sandy Beach Accents dies

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Kind Heart

Hey friends! It’s Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. I have a fun coffee mug shaped card to share with you featuring a new distress oxide ink blend combo that I LOVE paired with some Reverse Confetti cuties!

Most of the time I ink blend and then die cut but today I cut out my coffee mug first and blended distress oxide inks in abandoned coral, kitsch flamingo and tattered rose. Isn’t this mix just amazing?!? I love it! Then I splattered some black acrylic paint on the whole panel and set it aside to dry.

I stamped and colored images from the Reverse Confetti Coffee and You stamp set. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. Now that my panel was dry, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from My Tribe in black. I added foam squares to the elephant and mouse on the stool and added them to the front.

And then, for grins, I added the other mouse directly to the back of the card. It makes me giggle.

For finishing touches, I added white gel pen accents to the images, black glaze pen to their eyes and glossy accents to things like the mouse’s nose, elephants feet and the star on the coffee cup.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – You’re Just My Cup of Tea

Hi everyone! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. I had some fun playing with the secondary images in a new-to-me set from Hero Arts called Mouse Tea Party. There are some adorably cute mice in this set ready for a tea party, along with great sentiments and other fun images too.

I stamped and colored images from the set with my copic markers, keeping to pinks and oranges because I knew I wanted a blue/teal background so they would pop and not get lost. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and moved on to getting inky.

I blended chipped sapphire, peacock feathers and speckled egg distress oxide inks on a while panel, then splattered it with water and pearl watercolor. Then I trimmed the panel down to 4.5×4.25 inches and added a strip of white glitter paper to the bottom. I added foam tape to the back and popped it on a white card base. Then I stuck that in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment on the bottom right side.

Next, I added foam squares to the back of my images and popped them in place. Moving on to finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the mushroom dots, and parts of the teacup and teapot. Then I went ahead with a little more sparkle by adding stardust Stickles to the steam, butterflies and flower centers.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. I hope you’ve found some inspiration to create something wonderful and share it with someone too!

Have a fabulous day!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers | Trinity Stamps – National Bubble Tea Day Hop

Yippee!!! Today is National Bubble Tea Day and the Coffee Loving Cardmakers are celebrating along with Trinity Stamps with a fun blog hop full of inspiration and a chance to win a $25 gift code to the Trinity Stamps store!!! I made two fun cards to share with you today. I hope you like them.

I had so many fun ideas that it was hard to narrow it down. I had a blast getting inky, coloring stamp sets I haven’t been able to use much and playing with dies in different ways. Let’s jump in and I’ll run through how I made each card. Then at the end of this post I’ll give you a list of linked products so you can easily find them.

For this super fun slimline card, I started by inking up a light teal panel with mermaid lagoon distress oxide on the edges. Then I used the slimline halftone dots stencil with blueprint sketch ink. For more texture, I flicked watered down ink from both oxide colors and also watered down black acrylic paint. I set it aside to dry while I die cut all the parts to my boba tea cup, using Summertime Sips die set. I cut 2 cups from acetate so I could sandwich the vellum “drink” and boba inside. Then it ended up being helpful to die cut the lid twice and glue one on each side to help keep the top together too.

Next, I stamped images from Let the Good Times Roll, Unbelievable and Classroom Cuties, and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies from each set to cut them all out. It was helpful at this point to use some liquid glue and adhere things like the balloon, roller skates and boba cup in place.

I adhered the stenciled panel to a white card base measuring 3.5×8.5 inches. Then I carefully adhered parts of my cup where I could hide the glue like the lid and straw, behind the boba, and eventually behind the unicorn too. Then I added foam squares to the images and sentiment and put them in place last.

For finishing touches on this fun card, I added glossy accents to the balloon, roller skate wheels, small boba cup and the open letters on the sentiment. The last thing I did was added black glaze pen to the critter’s eyes.

Isn’t this just so much fun!?! I love it!

For this second card, I also started with inking up my background. This time I took an oversized panel measuring 4.5×6 and inked it up with mustard seed and scattered straw distress oxide inks. Then I added the slimline diagonal stripes stencil and inked it up with mermaid lagoon distress oxide. Once I removed the stencil, I flicked some watered down mustard seed, mermaid lagoon and black acrylic paint on the panel. I set it aside to dry and stamped some images from Classroom Cuties. I colored those with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

While my panel was still drying, I dug through my stash to find the words to complete the sentiment I was going for. I found them in the hello and sweet senti-mini sets. So I stamped and heat embossed them in white on black cardstock and trimmed them into little word blocks.

Finally, I pulled out the Marshmallow and Graham Cracker alphabet die sets and cut the letters for the rest of my sentiment, being sure to keep all the inside pieces because I wasn’t 100% sure what I would need.

Moving on to assembly, I adhered a black panel measuring 2.25×5.5 inches to the bottom of a white card base. Then I trimmed the stenciled panel down to 2×5.5 inches, where the words “to my tea” were cut from and added foam squares to the back. I adhered it in place next. To keep spacing simple, I added foam squares to the back of everything else and adhered the left and right sides first, finishing with the word “boba” last.

For finishing touches on this card, I added glossy accents to the boba cups and black glaze pen to the people’s eyes.

Classroom Cuties stamps and dies
Unbelievable stamps and dies
Let the Good Times Roll stamps and dies

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Unbirthday Tea

Hi there! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. I’ve pulled out some of my favorite Miss Ink Stamps goodies to play with for today’s pair of cards too!

Do you ever create an awesome background, only to cover most of it up with elements and feel like you’re wasting it? That’s what was going to happen with the design in my head today so I turned one card into two by cutting my inked background in half!

I inked up the Enchanted stencil with spun sugar, cracked pistachio and wilted violet distress inks, then to soften the white lines from the stencil, I went over everything a second time very lightly. It gives a hazy look which I thought was really cool. Then I splattered it with pearl watercolor and left it to dry.

I pulled out the Unbirthday sentiment set and stamped and heat embossed each one in silver on white cardstock panels. Then I came back with the Trinity Stamps scenic border cloud die and cut off the bottom. I added foam tape to the back of these panels and set them aside too. Next, I stamped images from Tea Party and colored them with my copics. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and started assembling my cards.

I cut the stenciled panel in half and used liquid glue to adhere each half to card bases. Then I popped the sentiment panels on with their foam tape and added foam squares to the back of my images. After popping those in place, I moved on to finishing touches for each card.

I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in simply white and morning dew across both card designs. Then I added glossy accents to different parts of the images on both cards as well.

These cards are just so fun and between the two different sentiments, you have birthday and just because cards at the same time! How great is that!?!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – CAS-ual Fridays Hop Prize Card

Hey friends! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea over on the Coffee Lovers blog today and I’m super excited to share a card I made with my prize from the Spring|Summer Hop that just finished in March! It was so much fun and I was lucky enough to win a fantastic prize pack from CAS-ual Fridays. They were so generous and I was very excited to jump right in and start creating with everything.

I started by cutting a strip of kraft cardstock and inked up the by the beans stencil with brown ink. Then I left my stencil in place and went over the whole thing with VersaMark ink and added clear embossing powder for cool shiny coffee beans! I took some tea dye distress ink and inked up the top and bottom of my strip for some added interest. Then I watered down ground espresso distress oxide ink and flicked it all over the panel.

Next, I took the sentiment from the Coffee Days stamp set and heat embossed it in copper on a white panel. Then I went over the top with ground espresso, gathered twigs and tea dye distress oxide inks. I wiped off the residue from the heat embossing and spritzed the panel with a distress sprayer. I flicked watered down ground espresso distress oxide on this panel too.

I trimmed a half inch strip of black cardstock and added it to the sentiment panel. Then I lined the back of that whole panel with foam tape. I adhered the coffee bean panel to a white card base with liquid glue and then popped my sentiment panel on as well.

This card was so much fun to make and I absolutely LOVE the sentiment. It’s so fun and cracks me up every time I read it.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Pink & Main – Hello Sweet Friend

Hey everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with this sweet card featuring one of the newly release stencils that I’m just in love with – Deco, and another image from the Gnome Matter What set. I’m also playing along with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers hop, which Pink & Main is a Super Sponsor of!

I started my card by stamping and coloring the large image from Gnome Matter What with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut it out and set it aside. Then I cut a white panel with the largest of the Layered Rectangle dies and inked up the Deco stencil over top with two different green dye inks, using my blending brush.

I used the new liquid glue to adhere my stenciled panel to a white card base and pulled out the wreath base 2 dies and cut three of the wreaths out. One from vellum and the other two from different green cardstocks. Then I glued them down and popped up my image with foam squares on top. I went back to choose a sentiment and thought it would be fun to add the cut little snail to the scene too. I stamped them both, colored the snail and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also used foam squares to adhere these to my card and moved on to finishing touches.

I kept it simple for finishing touches on this card by just adding glossy accents to certain areas of the images like the flower centers, snail shell, windows of the mushroom and parts of the mug.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Newton’s Nook – Kit-tea Cat

Hello again! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today with a super fun caffeinated creation to get your juices flowing today! I’ll be entering it into the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring|Summer Hop. I really hope you’re playing along with us. It’s so fun and there is so much inspiration to be had and prizes to be won!

I am honestly, SUPER EXCITED to share this card with you today! I had the fun idea to mask off the mug from Newton’s Mug and stamp one of the Monarchs images inside it for a decorated coffee cup! I love it! I colored the image with my copics and used the coordinating dies to cut it out.

Then for my background I cut a white panel to A2 size and inked up the Mugs stencil with light yellow ink. I took the Framework dies and cut the largest rectangle, then cut the rounded rectangle from the Frames & Flags set out of the center to create a frame.

For my sentiment, I chose the first one from Newton’s Mug and stamped it on a stitched circle from the Frames Squared set. Then I added a sentiment from Heartfelt Essentials to a banner from the Banner Trio set. I inked up the edges of the circle with a light green ink as close to the mug color as I could get, then I inked up the bottom of the banner with the same yellow as the mugs stenciling.

Moving on to assembling my card, I added the stenciled panel to a white card base, then popped the frame up with foam strips. I added foam squares to Newton’s Mug and popped it in place. I used liquid glue to adhere the circle to the banner and added foam squares to the back of that before placing it at the top of the design.

For finishing touches, I added a little glossy accents to Newton’s nose and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the butterfly on the mug and the circle sentiment.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
