I decided to do all my stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa. I started off with some quick stenciling using Distress Oxide – Antique Linen. I fussy cut the stacking mugs from Coffee Art and the bunny from Coffee Loving Critters.
I’ve actually been enjoying fussy cutting these days. It’s been super relaxing for me.
My copic colors I used:
R20 Y15 | Y19 BG13 | BG15 E0000 | E51
I heat embossed the sentiment from Coffee Art in white on kraft cardstock. I mounted everything on an Aqua panel. The middle stack of mugs, the bunny and the sentiment have all be adhered with foam squares. I went ahead and whipped up an extra card especially for today. I wanted to use Sneaky Kitties and send my girl [the green thumb] some happy mail:
The image has been stamped with Versafine Onyx on Bristol. It has been colored with Zig Clean Color Markers.
If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ll know that green is my favorite color. It was so relaxing to color this. For this I colored zig on zig. I blend with a lighter zig marker. Do you see the random pops of Zig English Lavender?
I’m super happy how this turned out and think it will make my girl smile. Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hello! Heather Hoffman here this morning – and if you haven’t noticed, I kind of love to make sets of cards sometimes! Especially when some of the images and sentiments on a stamp set are so cute that I can’t decide which one to use. When in doubt, use lots of them! I used a combination of Coffee Loving Critters, and mixed in a couple sentiments from Coffee Art for these cards I’m sharing today!
I started off by trimming card size panels of watercolor cardstock in half, to make mini canvases for the fronts of my cards.
Next, I paired the images and sentiments that I wanted to use, and stamped them in Versafine Onxy Black Ink with my MISTI on those watercolor panels I had created.
I colored them in with my watercolors, and left them to dry for a bit.
Once they dried, I added a thin black mat around each one. Finally, I adhered them with foam adhesive on white cardbases.
I love how the simple design lets these fun images just really shine! And it makes it super quick to put several cards together at the same time, but they are all a bit different – perfect for giving as a gift set or putting in your stash for when you need a card!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
Happy hello Evelin T. Designs friends… Annette Allen here with you today to share two fun cards I created using Evelin T. Designs: Coffee Loving Critters and Coffee Art stamp set. This month the design team is featuring these two stamp sets so make sure to join us every Monday for more fun inspiration.
I colored up these adorable images with Copic Sketch Markers and added a little highlights and a few polka dots using a white gel pen. I cut out the images using my Brother scan n cut machine. I used a die and some pretty designer paper for the background and with some foam adhesives I added my images to the card. I love to give my images some dimension.
This card was created using Evelin T. Designs: Coffee Loving Critters. How cute are those cupcakes? I colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers and again cut with my Brother scan n cut machine.
I sprayed some Ranger Distress Oxide on the background and added some pretty designer paper. The picture frame was added using foam adhesives. I also added some polka dots with a white gel pen.
Two simple cards and totally fun to create with these adorable stamps.
Hi Folks! Kelly Griglione here with a fun, interactive card for your favorite coffee lover! The new Coffee Art set is loaded with all sorts of different art you can add to your coffee. And why pick just one?! I sure didn’t want to, so for my first design team post I set about creating a spinner card featuring ALL the coffee art!
No special dies needed, just some good old-fashioned construction skills that I’m going to share here. To begin with, I designed the top of the card with all the cute coffee cups, and picked one of the coffee cups to showcase the changing art inside. For that cup I cut a circle out of the inside to make a window.
For the mechanism inside I cut a circle from brown cardstock (if you don’t have a circle die, just trace around a tin can or something else in your kitchen). Then I poked a hole in the center and put the tip of a pencil through so I can mark where it should be attached to the card base. At this point you should also line up the top of the card over the brown circle to make sure the art will show through the window in the coffee cup. This is when I realized the brown circle was a little too small to hang over the edge for it to be spun. No worries, I just cut a larger white circle and adhered it underneath the brown circle. Then I put a brad through the middle of the circles to attach them to the card base.
To make sure the art is stamped in the right place, I divided the brown circle in 6 equal sections and lined up the top of the card over everything. I stamped the coffee art through the window of the coffee cup, spun the circle to the next section, stamped another coffee art, spun the circle, stamped, spun, stamped, spun, etc.
To make sure the brown circle spins freely, I built up some layers around it.
Then I adhered the layers to the card base, and attached the brown circle spinner with a brad to the base. The top of the card is adhered to the layers. Now I can add the rest of the coffee cups and sentiment to the top of the card.
And here it is all assembled!
As you spin the circle, a new piece of coffee art appears! The recipient can have a new card almost every day of the week.
And here are all the different variations! Would you like to see it in action?
Fun, right?! I really enjoy making interactive cards like these. It’s a challenge to see if I can take an idea and make it work.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this spinner card take place, and maybe have some ideas of your own to try!
