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!

Welcome to CLC’s collaboration with Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps! I have 2 simple cards today that were made with Sweet ‘n Sassy digital stamps.
The first card uses their digital stamp Snowman’s Gift with a sentiment from Snowman Soup Sentiments. I printed the sentiment and image onto Neenah 80lb cardstock, die cut it with a stitched rectangle in my stash and mounted it onto a die cut cardstock panel from Waffle Flower and an A2 card base. I colored it with copic markers: bunny (W0 & W3), sweater (YG63 & YG61), snowman (BG0000 & BV000) and scarf (B66 & B63).
The second card uses the Snowman with Skates digital stamp and a sentiment from Snowman Soup Sentiments. Again I printed the sentiment and image onto Neenah 80lb cardstock, die cut it with a stitched rectangle in my stash and mounted it onto a die cut cardstock panel from My Favorite Things cardstock and an A2 card base. I colored it with copic markers: skates (W0 & W3), scarf & hat (B66 & B63), snowman (BG0000 & BV000).

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be here for my post on the CLC DT! I have an interactive card for you of a picnic with COFFEE! I grew up partly in Germany and pretty much daily at around 3pm is “Kaffeetrinken / Coffee Drinking” (similar to tea time in the UK) that is usually served with a cake. When I was younger I would just, of course, eat the cake!
I made a picnic scene with the adorable mice from the Crazy Antics stamp set coupled with the Slide on Over Maze die. I added coffee cups from the Love You A Latte stamp and die set that slide around the picnic.
I stamped the Crazy Antics stamp set (Memento tuxedo black ink on 110lb Neenah solar white cardstock) and then die cut all the images with Crazy Antics die set. The mice were colored with W3 and W00 copic markers. I also stamped and die cut the images from the Love You A Latte and Birthday Before N’Afters stamp sets in the same way and then copic colored them with Y21, YR21 and R20 copic markers. I die cut a rectangle to form the picnic blanket out of older Lawn Fawn plaid cardstock; the grass was die cut with Trinity Stamps Slimline Series: The Great Outdoors Borders & Builders die set using green cardstock I had in my stash.
To put the card together, I die cut a maze into the plaid cardstock and foam- and then added slider elements to the coffee cups prior to gluing all the parts together. I stamped a sentiment on a banner and added a few sequins.

Hello dear coffee-loving crafters! I am so thrilled to be joining the CLC DT! I truly love this group- all the caffeine-filled goodness on the blog and Facebook group perk me up as much as coffee does!
A little bit about myself, I am originally from New York, but I live currently in North Carolina with my hubs, teenage daughter and 2 doggies. I love coffee, drink several cups a day and collect coffee stamps (many of which are not for cardmaking). My daughter and I have always done arts and crafts but my love for paper originally comes from origami. I have also done scrapbooking, but fell in love with cardmaking about 3 years ago. I particularly love interactive and slimline cards and will try my best to make as many as I can.
Here are a few cards that I made for CLC as a guest:
Thank you so much for having me on the DT CLC- I am so thrilled to be here!
Welcome! Today I’m showing a project that I made for Trinity Stamps new challenge- this month focuses on flowers.
To make the card:
- I die cut a mug card base and inner gift card panel with the Coffee Mug Card die out of Neenah 110lb solar white cardstock. I then did a partial die cut of the front of the mug out of a piece of acetate and a piece of blue vellum. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Folded Hug stamp set on top of the acetate- this is a special acetate from Lawn Fawn which is a heavy weight acetate that won’t warp when a heat gun is applied to it! I adhered the sides of the inner panel only to the card base and the top 2 layers to the front with double-sided adhesive 1/8 inch tape.
- I used Ken Oliver watercolor paper (my new favorite) which is a heavy weight watercolor paper that can withstand quite a lot of moisture without warping (notice a trend here?). I heat embossed the Love You Bunches stamp set image and then die cut it with the Love You Bunches die. I also die cut a book mark from the Narrow Card and Bookmark Die with Envelope from Neenah 110lb cardstock that I will use later.
- I had recently gotten some new Ken Oliver dry watercolors (grape jelly, jellybean green, coral crush & razzle berry) and I was itching to use them! I love having sparkly elements on my cards, so I made first made a solution of water with Ranger Perfect Pearls (Biscotti has a faint golden sparkle) and then used this solution to reconstitute each watercolor on an acrylic block as shown below. Using a paint brush I applied color to the embossed image.
- Once the image was dry, I adhered the bookmark to the back of the watercolored image as seen below. I added some white gel pen markings to create some highlights on the flowers.
- The bookmark slides into the inner panel as shown below:
I hope that this project inspires you to enter into the challenge which can be found here: Trinity Stamps March Challenge. Don’t forget to link up your project and then you can proudly show off this badge! Thank you for stopping by!
Welcome! Today I wanted to make a winter/coffee slider pop-up card using several Miss Ink stamp sets “Punny Goat Stamps“, “Springtime Banners“, “Brewtiful” and “Oh Nuts“. It has been a while since I used my favorite critter stamp set “Punny Goat Stamps“; the images always make me smile.
To make the card:
- I die cut an A2 stitched rectangle panel from a powder blue cardstock and heavyweight vellum from Bazill. I decided to use the caffeine molecules as surrogate snowflakes (if you squint really hard, maybe they work!) and stamped the molecules with Versamark ink onto the vellum prior to heat embossing with Gina K white fine embossing powder. You can use any embossing powder, but I do recommend using the heavyweight vellum as it is the only one that I have found will not warp under the heat of an embossing heat tool.
- I wanted to create a scene with a cup of coffee on a table in front of a window with critters. I taped 2 rectangle dies together and die cut a window frame out of woodgrain cardstock. For the table I cut a 2 inch by 4.25 inch piece of Lawn Fawn Speckled cardstock by hand and added a die cut table cloth using a die from the Greetery. To make the sliding mechanism, the easiest way is to cut a groove, either by fussy cutting or die cutting (several companies have a die cut slider). Below I show that by cutting a piece of heavy weight cardstock (I use Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock) into a 3/4 inch by 7 inch piece, one can adhere one or 2 slider elements (seen is the slider element from My Favorite Things) onto that sliding piece that will fit in the groove. Trapping the sliding elements by adhering the goat die cut on top of the elements now ensures and constitutes the entire sliding mechanism.
- I folded over a smaller strip of cardstock (1/2 inch by 3 inches) onto itself and adhered it to the card base (near the top of the card base so that there was a track for the pull mechanism to rest in. I also adhered some double-sided foam to the back of the card panel as shown, so that there was ample room for the slider to be able to move.
- I stamped all the images in Momento Black Tuxedo ink onto Neenah Solar White Cardstock (85lb) and die cut them with my Brother CutnScan 2. I colored all the images with the copics shown here: coffee cup (E31, B63, B60), goat (E37, W3, W00, R00) squirrel with (E37, R00 & E31) and added white gel pen highlights.
- Finally I just adhered everything together, added a little pull tab (Lawn Fawn has several), the banner stamped with a sentiment, some sequins and a few scarfs & a hat stamped from Sunny Studio stamps.

Welcome to the Trinity Stamps LLC“>Trinity Stamps & Coffee Loving Cardmakers Collaboration Hop. If you came from the amazing Brenda Noelke’s blog, you are in the right place!
Today we are showcasing the Frappy Camper stamp & die set! I used the super awesome Coffee Mug Card Die set to highlight this stamp set and placed a few cute trees from the Castle Scene Builder Set. I put the gift card holder as a sliding feature right behind the front panel rather than inside the card as it was intended. This card was simply made by blending several distress oxide inks for the background and copic coloring of images die cut from the Frappy Camper stamp set.
The Prize: A $20 Gift Card to Trinity Stamps; winner to be selected from participating blogs (must comment on all) by 10/22 at 11:59 PM PT. Winner will be announced 10/26 on the Trinity Blog.
