The Coffee Lovers Blog hop is coming to an end. I have run out of time and this is my last entry as it closes tomorrow. There have been so many amazing cards and I have really enjoyed all of the inspiration. There are over 1100 cards in the gallery right now. So many beautiful cards. I am sorry to see it coming to a close and would like to give a big shout out to the hop host Amy Tsuruta and all of her teammates for putting this on. I am sure it is a lot of work and they all do an amazing job. Thank you Amy!
Will also enter this card into SSS weekly Monday – Masculine and Wednesday _ Anything goes challenges.
Even though the hop is ending you can bet that I will still make time for coffee and coffee themed cards. On with the card design and ingredients.
Started with a white panel. Used Tim Holtz stencil and stenciled the coffee rings in vintage photo distress ink. Die cut the panel with a Sizzix rectangle die.
I stamped varies cups from several sets( Sizzix, Lawn , Sweet Stamp Shop with Versamark and white heat embossed them along with the sentiment from Art Impressions Coffee bff’s stamp set.
The cups were die cut with some plain circle dies from Spellbinders and some stitched circles from SSS. These were sponged in various colors of Distress oxide inks. (worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade, mermaid lagoon, cracked pistachio, wilted violet and spiced marmalade)Then it was just placement, trimming the overhanging edges and layering.
The card base is a top folded Neenah 110# white card. The background edges are stamped in Versamark with a HoneyBee coffee bean stamp. This layer is glued flat. The pink, blue and yellow circles are popped up on foam squares and the others are glued flat. The whole panel is popped up on foam tape. Lastly I added a few brown sequins.
