National Coffee Day | Honey Bee Stamps

You really thought I could let “National Coffee Day” go buy without making a coffee themed card! I’m all for made up holidays, esp ones that involve coffee! Be sure to head over the the Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog for more inspiration!

I used one of my favorite coffee stamp from Honey Bee Stamps, Treat Yo Self to create this cozy fall themed coffee card.

To create this card, I started by stamping three of the coffee mug images from the Treat Yo Self using black ink on to heavy weight card stock. I colored the images using copic marker and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set onto pink card stock and cut it using the coordinating die cut.

Next I created the background using the Sweet Stacks Rectangle Dies, along with the Gingham Galore : Fall paper pad and the Cable Knit Sweater stencil. I inked up the stencil using Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks along with white pigment ink. After the inked panel dried, I added the colored die cuts using foam tape, and finished off with some jewels.

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)! We love to see what you create! 

Happy Crafting!

Love you S’more | Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Happy Friday! Welcome back for my last caffeinated card as guest designer on the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Blog! It’s been a wild month for so, I’m so glad that I got to craft as a distraction! As much as I love summer, I am ready for all things FALL! It’s already looking like fall in my craftroom, as you can tell from today’s card, along with the one that I shared last week!

Copic Combos : 0, N0; BG 10, 11, 13; YR 14, 15, 12; E 57, 37, 15, 13

For today’s card, I started by stamping ALL the images from Honey Bee Stamps Love you S’more stamp set. I colored them using copic markers (listed above) and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Then I created the background for the images to pop on, using some Gina K Blue Lagoon Ink and Newton Nook Designs Mug Stencil. Alternating between foam tape and glue, I adhered the colored images to the card front. I created the sentiment using the new Bitty Buzzwords Fall Diecuts along with the Bitty Buzzwords Fall Stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps latest release. I stacked the word die cut “latte” three times using kraft paper, and embossed and cut off the “lets” from the “let’s get together” on a strip of brown cardstock. Lastly I added some jewels to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend and I hope you get some crafty time! Thank you Amy for this lovely opportunity!

DIY Coffee Background | Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Happy Friday! I hope that everyone had a productive week and some caffeinated crafty time to look forward to this weekend! I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today sharing some more inspiration using one of my first and favorite coffee stamp sets from Newton’s Nook Designs, Newton Loves Coffee.

To create this card, I started by stamping some of the smaller images from Newton Loves Coffee and Cup of Cocoa, and stamped all over an A2 card front with watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I inked up the edges with Brushed Corduroy distress oxide ink, leaving the center white. 

Next I stamped and colored the image from Newton’s Mug with copic markers and die cut it with the coordinating die. I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto the mug, and adhered it on to the center of my DIY background card front. Finally added some jewels to finish off the card.

Rainbow Espressos | Coffee Loving Cardmarkers

Thank you Amy for inviting me to guest design for the month of August, I’m super excited not only for all the caffeinated craftness I get to share, but also all the fall themed products I’ll get to use! 

For my first post I thought that I would use a set that this blog enabled me to buy, but I hadn’t used it till now! To create this card, I started by stamping all the images from the A Breve Note stamp set from Ellen Hutson. I colored them to create a rainbow using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies

Next I inked up a A2 card front using the Triangles Stencil using Distress Oxide Inks in Ground Espresso, Brushed Corduroy, and Frayed Burlap. After the ink dried, I embossed the sentiment using versafine onyx ink and clear embossing powder. I finished off the card by stacking the colored die cuts with foam and glue to create dimension, and lastly added some espresso jewels.
