Fall | Winter 2022 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome coffee card-loving makers! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’m going to keep today’s post brief because you have so much more inspiration to look at today 🙂 I used Super Sponsors Trinity Stamps and The Greetery products for my card today.  I decided to have a somewhat hidden coffee cup in a beautiful christmas scene.

I used the stencil set from The Greetery called the StencilScapes Winter Stencil– it is a 6 piece stencil and it was so much fun to use! My original plan was to have part of the image on a coffee cup or mug. But it didn’t look right when I tried to make it. So instead I die cut a coffee mug out of the scene, added adhesive foam dots to elevate it and then plopped it back in the scene.

I used the new Santa Mug die set from Trinity Stamps to die cut a mug out of the scene. It is such a perfect sized mug for an A2 card! I know I will be using it often.

Thank you so much for stopping by- wishing you a lot of fun while hopping through all the inspiration!

2021 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2021 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! I have a slimline card for you today with some Mama Elephant products.

I stamped and die cut images from using the Hot Cocoa stamp and die set, colored everything simply with copic markers and adhered them to a panel die cut with Trinity Stamps Slimline Striped Frame die set.

National Coffee Day Hop

Happy National Coffee Day! All the fun starts on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog, so head here first.

Today one of our lovely Super Sponsors, Ellen Hutson, will be giving away 2 Bear Cozy kits on the CLC blog and the CLC design team is sharing projects today using it.

I decided to make a card instead of a coffee cozy this time, but will be sharing a coffee cozy project soon.

I die cut all the components of the coffee cozy and decided to wrap it around a coffee cup that was die cut using the Catherine Pooler Gift Card To Go die set . The flaps that would house the gift card were perfect to hold the bow and heart.

I placed the to go cup on a background of die cut grids that I had in my stash. The sentiment was die cut with the Trinity Stamps Thankful For You stamp and die set.

Thank you so much for stopping by- don’t forget to stop by the CLC blog and be sure to comment for a chance to win one of several fun prizes!


MFT Card Design Superstar 2021

Hi there, I have a very last minute entry for the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar contest.

I used the following sets to make this Movin & Groovin Special Delivery slimline card.

Special Delivery stamp set

Special Delivery die set– I added an action wobble to the presents, hoping that the bumpy road would fling the presents here and there!

Movin & Groovin slimline dienamics

Sweet Snowflakes dienamics

Collage Cover Up dienamics– I used the middle rectangle to stamp the sentiment from the Special Delivery stamp set.

Birch Tree dienamics

Snowfall stencil– I used this A2 6 inch version on the slimline below (just had to use it twice with drying time in between. I spread Decofoil Transfer Gel Duo onto the slimline panel and then use Decofoil Flock transfer Sheets in white latte to get some fuzzy snow.

Finally I fussy cut a back slope (I didn’t have an MFT die that gave me the look I wanted). By the way, the presents are on a

If you want to see it in action I have it on my instagram account here. Thank you so much for stopping by!!

National Bubble Tea Day Hop

Welcome to the Trinity Stamps and Coffee Loving Cardmakers Bubble Tea Hop! It is so lovely to have a great company and a great group come together to celebrate Bubble Tea. I drank Bubble Tea for the first time last year and enjoyed it! After we tried it, my daughter and I made my own boba to use.

The card I made uses one brand new product that is being released TODAY- it is the Slimline Burst Builder die and it is in the shop now :). I paired it with the Slimline Quilted Cover die and the Summertime Sips die.

I decided to make a shaker card with the black embellishment “bubbles” floating around. I die cut all the pieces for the shaker out of acetate, vellum and heavy weight cardstock.

Finally I added a hello sentiment die cut with the Hello Bootiful die set, cut out of gold adhesive foil paper.

Floral Cloche Card

Hi there, Christine here with an A2 sized card featuring a floral cloche setting featuring the Blooming Bunch stamp & die, the Tall Dome Shaker Die and the A2 Quilted Cover Plate die.  I love having a delicate background that is either tone on tone or very subtle and the vellum with the quilted background creates just that- enough interest, but it causes the recipient’s eye to focus on the main image.

First I die cut the quilted panel out of Neenah 110lb solar white cardstock with the Quilted Cover Plate die.  I die cut a smaller stitched rectangle with a die I had in my stash out of blue vellum that I also had in my stash.  I die cut foam and an aqua piece of cardstock with the Tall Dome Shaker Die containing both die pieces inlaid, whereas I cut a piece of acetate with only the outer large dome die.  My original intention was to create a shaker card, but often during the process, I will change my mind. I decided against the making the shaker because I thought the shaker pieces would be too distracting for the card.

I die cut the bouquet and copic colored it will all the colors you see in the above photo.  

Flowers: R00, R20, YR24, YR21, Y21 and YR30

Leaves: G46, YG67, YG61 and BG10, BG11 for the eucalyptus branch

I added black marks for the sunflower with my black glaze pen and gold dots with Nuvo gold Crystal Drops.  I spent quite a bit of time looking at all the different shades of aqua/blue I had in my stash before deciding on the 3 tones that I ultimately chose.  I decided to not make the floral bouquet fit neatly inside the dome. I really like how it looked with the leaves poking outside the cloche, even though it doesn’t make any sense in real life, but art gives us creative license to do that, doesn’t it?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Coffee Glitter Slimline Card

Hello there, Christine here with a slimline card using the new Coffee Spring | Summer kit from Super Sponsor STAMPlorations. I highly recommend the kit- it was packed with several stencils, a stamp set, stickers, cardstock/emphemera and lots of die cuts.  I used a die cut, stencil and a sentiment from the emphemera on today’s card. First, I used the slimline sized floral stencil that came in the kit, and ink blended dried marigold, spun sugar and scattered straw distress oxide inks over the stencil. I then put glitter paste (Couture Creations) immediately over the inked portions before removing the stencil.  The photo below shows the amount of glitter on the card. I then did simple copic coloring on one of the die cuts in the kit.  I used YR67, YR63 on the leaves, YR21, Y21, Y30, YR01, YR00, R00, R20 for the flowers. I cut up the sentiments in the paper pack and glued it on with double sided foam tape. Finally, I added a few embellishments to add some accents to finish the card.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Bunny Coffee Slimline

Hello there, Christine here with a slimline card using digitals from our new Super Sponsor IsabelCristina Stamps.  I also used products from Super Sponsor Trinity Stamps, The Greetery and Stampin’ Up. I first made die cut the images from the digital stamp Coffee Bunnies from IsabelCristina Stamps using my Silhouette.  I then did simple copic coloring with W0 and R00, as I wanted to keep the bunnies a lighter shade. I die cut a slimline heart panel out of vellum in my stash using the Slimline Sweetheart Panel die from Trinity Stamps and attached it to a slimline card base (8.5 inches by 3.5 inches folder).  I then die cut some floral sprigs out of vellum using the BotaniCuts Wildflower Mix die set from the Greetery. Finally I added some embellishments from Trinity Stamps: Java Stop Clay embellishments and Captivating Cantaloupe Baubles. Thank you so much for stopping by; I hope that you are all enjoying the Spring | Summer blog hop.

2021 Spring | Summer Coffee Lover Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2021 Spring | Summer Coffee Lover Blog Hop that runs from Friday, March 19 – Friday, March 26! If you have come from the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog, you are in the right place.

Today I have a simple slimline card using products from super sponsors Gina K, Concord & 9th and Trinity Stamps.

I used the Gina K Mini Wreath Builder for the first time and did mostly 1/4 turns instead of 1/8 turns. I used Concord & 9th inks in sea glass, sorbet, sprout & parsley to create the wreaths and decorated them with embellishments from Trinity Stamps (Java Stop clay embellishments).

I kept the card itself simple by using some cardstock (that I had in my stash) die cut with the Trinity Stamps Slimline Card Series: Stitched Card Panels and Windows die. To finish the card off, I used a coffee cup image and sentiment from the La-La Land Crafts stamp Java Nice Day and colored the coffee with copic marker E31- and that’s it!
