2018 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends,

Today we are celebrating all things coffee and tea with the current Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.  So Suzy is a super sponsor for this highly anticipated event!  Be sure to check the So Suzy blog post to see what the entire design team put together for inspiration.




Here is my card featuring coffee beans, a top view coffee mug and of course the coffee themed sentiment.  The background has some "coffee stains" as well.I do so many cards with a white background that I wanted to do something different.



I went with a creamy off-white cardstock as the basis for the entire card, except for the card base which is a deep chocolate brown.  The one pop of color is the hearts centered in the coffee surface.

I stamped everything with Versamark and used Nuvo Hot Chocolate embossing powder to heat set.  The only coloring I did was to fill in the coffee liquid in the cup, the hearts and the coffee beans.  The only exception I made to this was embossing the coffee stains on the background with clear embossing powder to create a watermark effect.

Since I created the coffee stain background first, the coffee cup, beans in the corners and sentiment were stamped on a separate piece of cardstock and fussy cut before gluing down to the background panel.  My finished card size is A2 - 4.25" x 5.5".

Thanks so much for stopping by today - below are links to the stamps used for this project.  Hope you enjoy participating in the hop or if nothing else ogling all the lovely cards that will be linked up.
