Ok really, this is my last card. My co-poster (who is too crazy busy to post much these days) pointed out that one of the Snarky Cats from STamptember is holding a coffee cup. How could I not make a card with this. Making this card also gave me an opportunity to use this coffee bean stencil which was a prize for me from Casual Fridays in a previous Coffee Lovers Bloghop! (Thanks again)
Take a look:
I thought I had made my last coffee card for this bloghop, but yesterday in the mail I received the Picket Fence’s Sponsored by Coffee. This is the only stamp set that I ordered with the bloghop in mind, but I thought it wasn’t going to show up in time.
The card turned out well and the lovely plaid from Memory Box gives the card both a festive and masculine feel. Take a look:
This might be my last card due to time constraints. I do have another idea forming in my head so you never know.
Again a product was the inspiration for my card. The trifold background on the card is provided by a die called Anja’s Gate from Marianne Designs. I had already made four different sample cards for the Scrapendipity store with everything from a forest scene to a Christmas scene using this die, so I thought why not a Coffee scene.
One of the dies slipped a bit and is misaligned. Usually this is enough to send it to the big round file, but I have some things I have to get done and so I used it anyway.
Overall, it turned out well. The back of each of the screens is wide enough to hold a coffee card, so this might become someone’s Christmas present.
Nothing gets card ideas flowing for me like getting a new stamp or die. I always like the challenge of figuring out how to make the new product work with what I already have in my stash. The trend toward slimline cards has opened up a whole new stream of possibilities.
I have gathered a mini collection of over-caffeinated critters from The Rabbit Hole Designs. What can be better than one of these critters on a coffee card? The answer is three on them on a card using the Slimline Basics die set from Mama Elephant. This time the patterned paper is from Stampin Up. and Reminisce’s Coffee and Tea. Stickles, Neon Amplify, Enamel Accents and Trinity stamps Unicorn sequins provided the embellishments.
