Mama Elephant – CLC Spring-Summer Hop

Thanks for stopping by for another caffeinated inspiration post. I was counting down the days until this Mama Elephant boba tea set released and I’ve had a blast with it since it came!

To create this fun card, I started by stamping my images and coloring them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and I set everything aside to work on the base. I pulled out my Newton’s Nook Frames & Flags and Framework die sets and cut some pieces from softer colors that coordinated with how I colored the images and set to assembling.

The purple scalloped rectangle is popped up with foam tape and then the frame and inside is popped up on that. Then for a little different dimension, I glued 2 of the cups to the frame panel and popped the other images up with foam squares.

Then I die cut a flag using the same Newton’s Nook dies and heat embossed my sentiment in white. I popped it up with foam tape on the top half so it lays flat on the frame. Last, I finished the images off with a few white gel pen accents and highlights.

I’ll be linking this up to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop HERE. Are you playing along? I hope so!

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

Paper Smooches – CLC Spring-Summer Hop

Welcome! Welcome! Today I’ve got completely clean and simple AND die cut! If you’ve followed me for long, you know I don’t like white space. It makes me so uncomfortable but when I saw this design using some other types of dies, I was inspired to try it with this fun Paper Smooches coffee cup die.

This is a die set with the solid cup and the designed cup. I die cut the solid cup multiple times from white cardstock and glued them offset across my card. I trimmed the excess off the sides and then I die cut the design twice from white cardstock. One set I colored with my copics. Then I took the outline from the second one and glued it over the top. I adhered this to my card base and moved on to my sentiment.

I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Paper Smooches Caffeinated on black cardstock with white embossing powder. Then I took a banner die from Trinity Stamps 4-Bar Card Die set to cut it out. I popped this up with foam strips for a little dimension on such a simple card.

I’m linking this up to the Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s Summer-Spring Hop as well. Have you joined in on the fun yet? There’s still time. Head HERE to check out some inspiration and link your projects up as well.

Miss Ink Stamps – CLC Spring-Summer Hop

Hello again! Back for more caffeinated inspiration? I’m soooo glad! Today I’ve got a fun card featuring a set from Super Sponsor Miss Ink Stamps called Java Joe’s. I love this set so much! It’s got tons of potential to mix and match the images for great scenes.

To create this fun card, I stamped my images on a white panel and colored them with my copics. Then I punched out some banner flags and cut a background panel all with coordinating paper. I adhered the brown panel to the cardbase, popped up the colored panel and the banners with foam squares. Then I finished it off with some glittery washi tape from my stash for just a touch of bling.

This is a really different design for me but I had a blast putting it together and figuring out how I wanted to showcase the super fun images.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring-Summer Hop

Hello everyone! I’m super excited to kick off the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring-Summer Hop today! Be prepared for a full week of caffeinated inspiration! I really hope you’ll play along and link up your projects for chances at tons of fun prizes!

I have so many fun things to share with you this week. It was hard to choose which one to share with you first. Ultimately, I just had to go with a dose of caffeinated happiness in a super fun shaped card featuring products from our Super Sponsor Trinity Stamps.

To create this fun card, I used the coffee mug card die and cut it from a light mint textured cardstock. Then I used the rainbow die on 6 different colors of cardstock and assembled it. I added some clouds to the base of the rainbow and around the mug for a sweet sky scene. Then I pulled out my MISTI and stamped some sentiments from the A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything set in a teal ink to coordinate with the fun colors of the card.

I finished this sweet card off with a scattering of creamy vanilla heart sprinkles. Isn’t it just so happy?!? I sure am addicted to this rainbow die! Pairing it with the coffee cup just seemed perfect.

Remember to head to the main hop post HERE and link up your projects throughout the week. You have plenty of time to create! Now keep hopping for some awesome inspiration.

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