Fall 2017 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Today's card is my second contribution to the Fall 2017 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop and my design team creation for Atlantic Hearts using sketch #230. I will also be entering it @ House of Cards for "Add Text" and @ Addicted -to -Stamps for "Stamp a Backround".




This card started with a white side folding A2 card base and a kraft cardstock layer trimmed just a bit off the sides. I then repeatedly stamped the COFFEE stamp from a retired set from FunStamper's Journey using 3 fall colors of chalk ink, going about 2/3rds of the way down from the top and stopping. I then glued a shimmery latte colored ribbon on and wrapped it around the back to hold it in place. The 3 mini antiqued copper brads were added using a tiny hole punch.


Using  a Versamark pad and brown embossing powder, I stamped and heat embossed the "to-go-cup" and the sentiment on small 2 pieces of white cardstock. The sentiment piece will be layered on 2 colors of cardstock while the cup will be fussy cut out.


And here's where I went a little rogue, lol...I turned a baby wipe into a stamp pad by spraying Walnut Ink onto it and then stamping the bottom of the blue silicone bowl in it to make the trio of coffee cup stains. I then also took the top off the ink bottle and tapped the spritzer tube to make the splatters, spritzed it with water to make it bleed a little and then dried it with my heat tool.


I used watercolors to color the "to-go-cup" and adhered it to the card front using foam tape once it was dry and fussy cut out.


The large kraft panel was mounted to the card front also using foam tape, everything else was glued down flat with my ATG gun. The last step was cutting the red and green banners and tucking them underneath the center layers.


On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from a STAMPlorations coffee themed stamp set in black, stamped the bottom of the bowl again with the walnut ink and the heart is from another love themed STAMPlorations stamp set. Hoping this card will put a smile on my hubby's face when he opens it while on one of his hectic weekly business trips...he loves his Starbucks Coffee!!!


Until next time, happy crafting~
