What’s better than coffee? Cute critters drinking coffee! In fact, Evelin T Designs has a stamp set by that exact name that has recently been restocked – the adorable Coffee Loving Critters! My card features the adorable kitty from that set, enjoying her latte in a pink mug with some catnip by her side. LOL
The sentiment is also from Coffee Loving Critters, the little plant is from All Hallow’s Cuteness and the banner is from Framed, a stamp and die set that Evelin designed for Winnie & Walter. Unfortunately, Winnie & Walter is no longer in business but you might be able to find a secondhand set somewhere out in the crafty universe.
To make this card, I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp all the images. I created masks to protect all the images, stamping the kitty first, then the plant and finally the banner. I left the masks in place so I could ink blend the background with four Simon Hurley create inks. After blending, I splattered the background with water, white mist and shimmer mist.
I removed the masks and watercolored the images with Simon Hurley create ink refills and you can find the links to all the colours below. To finish the card, I embellished the top and bottom edges using the Essentials by EllenStitches Cover Plate and Stitching Lines dies. I also added enamel hearts from my stash and linked to alternates below.
I used a stencil and Ranger oxide inks to create this fun background. You can really use any stencil you like to create a colorful filled background.
I stamped out these lovely leaves on some colorful card-stock. I fussy cut them and added them to my card using foam adhesives to give it a little dimension. Next I stamped this adorable cat drinking coffee and colored with Copic sketch markers. Finishing up with stamping the sentiment and cutting in half so I can add it on both sides of the image.
I added some Copic opaque, just because I love how it highlights the background a bit more.
Hey Happy Monday! It’s Amy here sharing a card duo that features Reading Buddies and Coffee Loving Critters. I originally was only planning on doing the A2 sized one but spotted a scrap 4.25 x 4.25 inch coral cardstock base so decided to do a fun version. First up is the A2 one:
Happy Monday! I was aiming to make an Easter card but when it came to the sentiment and trying to figure out how to create an Easter sentiment with non-Easter words, I scrapped that idea in favour of all-things-bunny.
Then I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Loving Critters (also available at EH | SSS) with three shades of ink, adding a second heart to balance out the colours. To finish, I adhered the bunnies to the card base with three sizes of glue dots.

I created a colorful background using Altenew: Classy Stripes stencil and Amy Tangerine Actetate. I used Ranger Oxide inks: Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. This fun image is colored with Copic sketch markers. I used some silver glitter paper to give it a little shine.
I used Scotch foam tape to give the image some dimension. I always like my cards to have a little pop. Foam tape is just fun…. don’t you think?
The background was created using the same stencil and Ranger Oxide inks: Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio Picked Raspberry and Tumbled Glass. I went with a simple background but really oh so fun. I love stripes and well with all this color it is right up my alley.
The images are all colored with Copic Sketch markers and added to the card using Scotch foam adhesives. More dimension….

Hello! Heather Hoffman here this morning with a card a fun card to share with you using the adorable Coffee Loving Critters stamp set. Do you ever just have some pattern paper you want to create something with, and base a card around that? That is pretty much what happened for this card!
I had this adorable Echo Park Little Lumber Jack 6×6 paper pad, so I pulled out a few of the coordinating papers to layer up. I die cut a rectangle, and then a heart window in the center of it using a couple of Simon Says Stamp dies, then layered it over some of the woodgrain paper
Next, I stamped those adorable mugs from the Coffee Loving Critters stamp set, colored in the “coffee” on the inside, and paper pieced the cups with some of the pattern paper in the pad, adding a bit of shading and depth with a Copic marker. I also added a layer of Glossy Accents to the coffee in the cups to add some shine.
I layered those with foam adhesive over the heart, and then stamped a sentiment on a strip of white cardstock from the same stamp set, and colored in the little heart with a Copic marker as well, then mounted that with foam adhesive under the coffee mugs.
Finished off by trimming some of the paper into strips, adding a torn edge, and attaching with small staples in a criss cross pattern.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
The mint card base is 4.25 x 9.25 inches. The Bristol panel is 4.0 x 9.0 inches. I stenciled mint colored clouds on the Bristol panel and added a grassy border.
I stamped the images from both Reading Buddies and Coffee Loving Critters in copic friendly black ink. I colored them with a ton of different copics but my overall color palette was inspired by THIS color trio.
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!!!
