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.

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.

Happy Easter Coffee Card

Hello there, Christine here.  I have an interactive, easel Easter Card using products that I got from Super Sponsor Ellen Hutson (Poppy Stamps), Simon Says Stamp (Avery Elle) and Lawn Fawn.  I added a coffee cup in the Easter Basket, which would be the perfect Easter Basket for me (chocolate & coffee). First I die cut the basket from woodgrain cardstock (I used what I had in my stash) using the Poppy Stamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel die set. I also cut the 2 piece card base and the basket outline, the leaves and the bow from the same die set using cardstock I had in my stash (I sort by color and don’t have the brand names).  I ink blended some distress oxide ink in gathered twigs on the outer edges of the basket to create some depth.  I assembled the card and put a stopper on the card (as seen below) so that the bottom part of the easel had something to catch on to when the card is opened. I stamped and die cut the coffee cup using the Avery Elle Cool Beans stamp & die set out of 110lb Neenah cardstock in solar white and stamped and die cut the coffee sleeve onto kraft paper.  I die cut the Easter eggs using the Lawn Fawn Mini Easter Eggs die set all out of 110lb Neenah cardstock in solar white and then ink blended either distress oxide ink in scattered straw or flamingo kitsch; I put some glitter paste over some of the pieces of the die cut eggs. Finally I stamped and die cut some adorable bunnies from the Lawn Fawn Easter Before ‘n Afters stamp & die set. I kept the coloring really simple, I used copic marker R20 for the egg and Stampin Up markers in Dark & Light Crumbcake for the bunnies themselves.  Finally I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Easter Before ‘n Afters stamp set onto a banner die cut that I had in my stash. Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope that you will have a crafty and caffeinated day!

Cozy Coffee Mug Card

Hello there, Christine here. Today I have a very cozy coffee card using products from Super Sponsor Trinity Stamps and Simon Says Stamps. I love the stamp the Puppy’s Quilt stamp from artist Anita Jeram and the Colorado Craft Company because it not only is such a sweet scene, but reminds me of my two sweet dogs. First I die cut a card base with the Trinity Stamps Coffee Mug Card die set out of 110lb Neenah solar white cardstock.  I then stamped the image from the Puppy’s Quilt stamp set with copic friendly ink from Lawn Fawn (crunchy leaf).  I kept the copic coloring simple and mostly wanted the sweet pup to be the star of the show.  The puppy was colored with E44, W0 and W3. The wallpaper was colored with R20 and R32.  The quilt was colored with V22, V20, G28, G24, R14, YR21.  The coffee was colored with E31 & E34. I used a sentiment from one of the Simon Says Stamps Sentiment Strips to finish up the card.   I hope you like the card- thank you so much for stopping by.

Hug in a Mug

Today I have an interactive card that was supposed to be a nod toward fall, but turned out to be more a nod toward winter. I used the Penny Black Snuggles and Cuppa stamp sets paired with Lawn Fawn’s Magic Picture Changer die.

First I ink blended Distress Oxide ink in speckled egg over some Neenah 110lb cardstock in solar white using a stencil from The Greetery (Knit Wits). Once completely dry, I die cut it with Lawn Fawn’s Magic Picture Changer Add-on die. I then copic colored it all over with BG00 (I should have done it before I ink blended, but sometimes I don’t know where I’m going with a card color-wise).  I die cut some Lawn Fawn speckled paper cardstock and navy cardstock with stitched rectangle die I had in my stash.  The pull tab was also cut from the same navy cardstock.

cbk-sep2-3

To create the changing scene, I stamped all the images from the Penny Black Snuggles and Cuppa stamp sets onto to Neenah 110lb cardstock in solar white with Memento tuxedo black ink. Before coloring, I die cut all the images with Lawn Fawn’s Magic Picture Changer die.  I always stamp my images before die cutting with dies because it comes out much cleaner (at least for me!).  Lawn Fawn has a great video on how to put the interactive card together.

cbk-sep2-4

Finally, I copic colored all the images and decided to use muted tones with a pop of red.  The bear was colored with W0, the hedgehog with Light & Dark Crumb Cake markers (Stampin’ Up), the coffee mugs with R46 & R35.

The assembly took the longest time, but the video from Lawn Fawn makes it quite easy. Two tips I have for you is to use a powder tool on the sliding components of the magic picture changer and to use the mechanism several times before you give your card to someone.  Doing both of these things will ensure that the paper will slide more easily.

Hello there!  Today I have a slimline card using dies from super sponsor Trinity Stamps stamps from The Greetery that I had been saving (hoarding) since they came out last fall.  I paired them with some new inks that I had just purchased from super sponsor Concord & 9th and I’m so pleased with the result!

First I die cut a slimline scalloped panel using the Slimline Series: Scalloped Card Panels & Banners die from Trinity Stamps and then die cut windows into the panel with Slimline Series Stitched Card Panels & Windows dies  and 110lb Neenah cardstock in solar white and plain vellum.  I love this cardstock because it is so easy to ink blend and copic color on!  I ink blended Distress Oxide ink in speckled egg onto the panel- someone may have to take that color away from me- I always tend to grab it to use on my cards!

I die cut the coaster (Greetery, Cozy Cup Coaster die) out of Lawn Fawn speckled yellow cardstock and stamped a sentiment with Memento ink in tuxedo black.  The cup of coffee (Greetery, Cozy Cup stamp set) is stamped with new Concord & 9th ink in grapefruit and sorbet & Lawn Fawn ink in crunchy leaf and then die cut (Greetery, Cozy Cup die set).  It took me a few times to line everything up right- don’t feel frustrated if it doesn’t work out the first time- it helps to use a MISTI and stamp out several images so that you are guaranteed to get at least one perfect one to use!

CBKAug26-2

The branches with leaves (Greetery, Cozy Cup stamp set) are stamped with new Concord & 9th ink in parsley and sprout.  Again, I stamped multiple images to ensure that I got a few good ones; the MISTI was so useful to re-stamp with the same color ink multiple times. The spoon took me several tries as well and I stamped the entire spoon with My Favorite Things ink in Grout Gray (the darker portion was just stamped many times with the same color).

CBKAug26-3

I hope that you will try out the new Concord & 9th inks, I enjoyed using them and will definitely be buying the larger size ink pad.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you a creative day filled with coffee!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring | Summer 2020 Blog Hop

2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
Friday, May 22, 2020 – Friday, May 29, 2020

Today is the start of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers 2020 Spring | Summer Blog hop! The party starts at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog here.  I am so thrilled to actually have my little blog be able to join the hop today!

Today I have an interactive coffee card made with Lawn Fawn products.  I used the Let’s Toast interactive dies to allow a piece of paper to be pulled up out of the typewriter.  I didn’t have a sentiment that I wanted to use so I created it in adobe illustrator using the American Typewriter font.

CBKCLC-1

I stamped all the images with Memento Ink and then die cut them.  I placed all the images temporarily in place to plan out of the scene of the card and to figure out where I was going to need to place the die to cut a notch that enabled the pull tab mechanism.

CBKCLC-2

Once I had everything in place in a way I liked, I adhered all the images with strong double sided adhesive.  I put one layer of foam between the card panel and the A2 card base so that the mechanism could work more easily.

Thank you for stopping by- enjoy the coffee hop!

Rare Friends Coffee Card

CBK-May20-3

All this week we are celebrating the upcoming coffee hop blog with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers occurring this Friday.  I decided to use the Coffee Mug Card die with the adorable imaginary friends (swamp thing, sasquatch & a dragon) having what else?coffee!!!!

85169048_182134003019940_4227232105509158912_n

First I die cut a card base 110 lb cardstock with the Coffee Mug Card die and then used the same die to cut a mug panel out of glitter cardstock.  I die cut the negative space into the glitter panel with the Totally Amazing die set, saved the little pieces so that I could eventually inlay the stamped Totally Amazing piece.  I also die cut the “coffee” sliver piece out of kraft cardstock and put glitter paste on it.

I stamped and die cut all the images from the Unbelievable stamp and die set, Hugs & Squishes stamp & die set, Totally Amazing stamp & die set and Rare Friend stamp & die set. Next I copic colored all the images very simply and also the sentiment.

CBK-May20-2

I tucked in all the rare friends with their coffee mugs, inlaid all the pieces and then adhered everything in place.  Finally I adhered the panel to the card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will join in CLC’s coffee blog hop this Friday!

I Appreciate You Coffee Card

CLC-May1-1

Hi everyone, this is Christine and I am so happy to be guesting on the CLC this month!  I have been a part of the CLC FB group and CLC card exchange group for almost a year- if you haven’t visited the FB group, please do- it is so much fun! I have been so inspired by CLC DT designer Amanda’s use of the new Trinity Stamps “Let The Good Times Roll” stamp set that I was determined to make a coffee card using it for my first guest post.  Because let’s face it, any critter paired with coffee is even more adorable, right?

I love my projects to have some glittery or metallic effects, so first I cut out a bunch of rainbows from Memory Box glitter paper using the Trinity Stamps Rainbow Die set.  I decided to keep it to 5 colors rather than six and merely separated each rainbow into parts and taped 5 pieces together as you’ll see on the finished card.

CLC-May1-3

I die cut the coffee mug card base using the Trinity Stamps Coffee Mug Card Die set and then embossed the front with the Trinity Stamps Starry Skies Coverplate Die set, and ink blended with spun sugar Distress Oxide Ink to create a muted pink background.  I added some pink sequins to highlight certain stars.  Finally I die cut and copic colored the sentiment and images from the Trinity Stamps So Appreciative stamp & die set, Let the Good Times Roll stamp & die set and the coffee mug from the Dir-Tea Bunny Stamp & die set.

CLC-May1-2

I copic colored the sentiment with R20 and R00 and added white gel pen highlights.  I used R20, R00, W3,W00, Y11, BG10 and BV01 on the unicorn. I’ve shown a close-up of the unicorn above to show that I added glitter paste with a paintbrush to the unicorn, just to add a bit more sparkle.
