Thanks a Latte (in the Fall) | Honey Bee Stamps

Two posts in one day! Woah what! After my cleaning session, I had a few minutes before the dishwasher and dryer were done, and with two kids napping, I figured I’d get a little crafty time in and finished another card to sneak into the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

For this card, I paired some fall and winter products from Honey Bee Stamps cause I am not yet ready to let go of fall! I also finally attempted and successfully created a full panel shaker card!

To create this card, I started by created the shaker using this method and the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate and added it to a top folding A2 card front.

Next I created the mugs using the Mugs and Kisses die set along with the Darling Dahlias stamp set. I colored in the flowers with copics and then used a copic BG11 to color around it. I stamped the latte art from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and ink blended over it with some brown distress ink and die cut it using the coordinating die.

Lastly I built the sentiment with the “thanks a” from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and the “latte” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Fall die set cut from matte gold paper.

I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall/Winter Blog Hop | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday y’all! It’s been a long but thankfully productive week! Just finished a baking session and thought that I would take a break and share a pair for card before starting a cleaning session!

It’s the last day of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and Newton’s Nook Designs is having a sale, so I thought I’d share some inspiration using the new stamp from their November release that are also included in the sale!

I made a pair of cards using my new favorite coffee products (including the new Coffee House Stories Paper Pad!) from Newton’s Nook Designs.

For my first card, I started by stamping and coloring some of the images from the Time For Coffee stamp set using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating Time For Coffee Die Set. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set on to a stitched banner diecut from the Bookmark Die Set.

I assembled the card on a A2 Kraft card base, firstly adding two strips of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper Pad. Next I added the colored images layered with the sentiment banner and finished off with some jewels as always!

For the second card, I used the same Time For Coffee stamp set, this time coloring and die cutting some of the other images and coloring them with copic markers. This time I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a stitched circle die cut from vellum, I cut using the Circle Frames Die Set

I assembled this card on a A2 Kraft card base also, starting with two strips of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper Pad. Next I added the colored images layered with the vellum circle and finished off with some jewels as always!

Coffee and Friends | Pawsome Stamps

Happy Thursday! It’s been a busy day, and I still have a ton of baking to get done to done, but I needed to take a minute so I finished a card as nap times aligned! And since we still have a few more limits, lets see if I can get this on the blog! I created a coffee card for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I’ve recently been creating card with colored pieces that I stash away! So today’s card uses this fun coffee mugs from Pawsome Stamps Coffee Besties Stamp Set.

Since the images where already stamped, colored and fussy cut, it only took a few minutes to put the card together. I started by trimming down a sheet of pattern paper to an A2 size and die cut a window in it using the Window Frames Die from Pretty Pink Posh. I adhered the die cut card from to an Kraft card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the Coffee Besties Stamp Set in the windows and added the coffee mugs to the card using some foam tape. And as always I finished off the card with some confetti.

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – Day 1 – Time for Coffee + coordinating Dies, Coffee House Stories Paper Pad

Happy Monday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! This release is probably my favorite of the year! Coffee and Books, it was made for me! Today we are showcasing the Time for Coffee stamp set along with the coordinating Dies, and a new paper pad, Coffee House Stories! Here’s how I was inspired!

The Coffee House Stories is my crafty wish come true on paper! After the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad was released, I was like we have to have a coffee one! So of course I had to use them on almost all my cards! And more cards are on the way! This is one paper pad I won’t be hoarding!

For my first card, I used a sheet of the paper paper as my inspiration! I stamped and colored the to – go mug from the Time for Coffee stamp set using copic markers and dir cutting it using the coordinating dies. I crated the back ground for the card using a Kraft card base, and a sheet from the Coffee House Stories pattern paper pad.

I finished off by stamping a sentiment from the same Time for Coffee stamp set on to a pink strip of paper and attached the colored die cuts on it, and lastly, like all my cards, added some jewels!

I loved the Coffee House Stories pattern paper pad so much, I had to create a second card using some older products that coordinate perfectly with it! To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring Newton from Newton’s Mug and die cutting using the coordinating Newton’s Mug Die, I stamped the image a second time on to a sheet of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories pattern paper pad and paper pieced it on to the colored die cut.

For the card base, I embossed Mugs Stencil on to some craft paper, added a strip of pattern paper from the Coffee House Stories paper pad that matched the colored image. I finished off the cards by stamping a sentiment from the Time for Coffee stamp set on to a banner cut from the Banner Trio Die Set and a few jewels.

Birthday Latte | Lawn Fawn

Hello crafty friends! Popping in with a coffee themed card I made for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Believe it or not, the coffee mug stamp is more than 3 years old and it was BRAND NEW in my stash!

To create this card, I started by stamping the coffee mug from the Pumpkin Spice stamp set three times, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them. I also stamped, colored and fussy cut the two cupcakes from the Baked with Love stamp set. Next I found a sheet of smiling coffee beans pattern paper, from who knows when and trimmed it down to an A2 size.

I die cut the Giant Happy Birthday from Kraft card stock to coordinate with the background and added it adhered it to the pattern paper. Next I arranged and adhered the colored images to the bottom of the card panel using foam tape. I finished off the card with jewels as usual!

Inky Paws Challenge #144 | Newton’s Nook Designs

It’s time for some Inky Paws Challenge Inspiration! I’ve got three cards to share today, so let’s get too it! The current Inky Paws Challenge is a sketch challenge, so of course I played with it!

For my first card, I went with a CAS style, something that I usually don’t do. I’m all about the layers, foam tape and sequins!

Copic Combo : YG23-13-03, R29-27-RV25

I decided to use my first Newton’s Nook Design stamp (now retired), that I stamped the rose and leaves, colored in with copics and fussy cut. Then I stamped and embossed the Heartfelt Roses image, and die cut it with the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set. Lastly I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set once from white cardstock, and secondly from pattern paper.

Finally I assembled the card with the heart die cut off set and using foam tape on the rose to add a little dimension and I had to add a few sequins! Is this a CAS card? Let me know in the comments!

For my second card, I rotated the sketch to make a landscape card!

Distress oxides : abandoned coral, spice marmalade, scattered straw. Copic Combos : R20, E57, E55-43-42

I started by ink blending the Petite Flowers Stencil onto an A2 piece of paper. I stamp and colored the image from the Newton’s Mug, colored Newton using copics and die cut it using the coordinating die. Then I paper pieced the mug from some scrap pattern paper. Lastly I diecut a pair of banners from the Banner Trio Die Set, embossing a sentiment from Birthday Roundabout on to one of them. I ended by ink blending the same colors as the stencil on to the banners.

To finish of the card, I added the mug image with foam tape on top of the layered banner, and of course added some sequins!

And … here’s my third card! I personally didn’t love it, but I wanted to post to show that not all cards are “perfect”!

Copic Combos : B05-02-00, R29-27, E37-27, V17-15

But you can’t get to perfect without practice! So go and create! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

We all know I love making shaker cards! And I love drinking coffee! So here’s a combination of the two! I started this card by inking up an A2 piece of Bristol Strathmore paper using the Mugs stencil with distress oxide inks in shaded lilac, tumbled glass and kitsch flamingo.

Copic combos : BV00-000, R20-11-01, BG11-10, E59-57

I then die cut a window to create the shaker, and stamped a sentiment from Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and filled it with clay confetti. I added the pair of mugs from the Love Cafe stamp set colored with copics (listed above) and die cut using the coordinating die.

Donuts and Coffee | Honey Bee Stamps

What better way to start your day then with donuts and coffee? Well nothing much I guess besides crafting while having the donuts and coffee!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I am all about adding rainbows to EVERYTHING! So of course my donuts needed some rainbow glaze too!

I started by stamping the donut image multiple times along the coffee mug from the love you s’more stamp set. I colored them using copic markers (colors listed below) and die cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I added glossy accents to the ‘glaze’ part of the donut and let it dry overnight.

To assemble the card I trimmed down a piece of pattern paper to an A2 size and embossed a sentiment on a scrap from my last card. I added the coffee mug and donuts using foam tape, and also made a mistake! Can you see it?

Copic Combo : C1-3-5, Y15-13, YR07-04, R08-05, YG13-01, BG05-B05, V17-15, E55-33, E15-37

Coffee Lover’s Spring/Summer Blog Hop | Newton’s Nook Designs

It’s finally time for the Coffee Lover’s Spring/Summer Blog Hop! I’ve been making a few cards and so excited to share them over the coming week! Today’s card uses one of my favorite Newton’s Nook Designs stamp sets paired with some pattern paper.

I started by stamping all the coffee mugs in the Newton Loves Coffee stamp set and colored them in with copic markers (colors listed below), and fussy cut them as I don’t have the matching dies.

Copic combo : C1, E59-57, E55-13, BG05-B02, YG 23-03, Y15-13, RV13-11

To assemble the card, I started with a light blue A2 piece of cardstock, then I layered it a sheet of pattern paper. I found the colored images were getting lost in the pattern paper so I added a sheet on vellum, on which I embossed a sentiment. I added the mug images using foam tape and finished off with jewels.
