Greenery and Coffee | Newton’s Nook Design

Happy Thursday! Well it’s basically a few hours to Friday, which means it pretty much the weekend! I missed the February Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge, but I really wanted to make sure that I sneak on into the March challenge, Green.

I stretched “green” to greenery” and added a lot of foliage to my coffee mugs! And since it’s winter on my card I added some whipped cream topping!

To create this card, I started by stamping the image from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set twice and die cut it with the mug die cuts from the Mugs and Kisses die set. I colored in the images using copic markers and added the whipped cream die cuts that I covered with some glitter nuvo drops, and set aside to dry.

Next I created the background for the card by embossing Holiday Foliage Stencil onto some green cardstock. I also die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set from and embossed a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set on to it. I also die cut a scalloped oval from vellum using the Oval Frames Die Set to add behind mug to help them pop. As always, I finished off with some jewels.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend!

Happy Sunday! Woah, what? I blog all week and then I have a card on Sunday too, whhaaatttt! Well I made this card that perfectly match’s the Caffeinated Christmas Card ChallengeSnowflakes so I had to she before the challenge it over!

I created this card using some of my favorite Mama Elephant stamps!

Next I created the front panel for the card, starting with die cutting a windows using the Window Frames Dies, and embossed it using the Snowfall Stencil. Then I stamped and colored the mountains from the Scene Builder using copic markers and a snow pen. Make sure to die cut the mountains with the coordinating dies. Lastly, I created the snowflake background using the Falling Snow Background, embossed with white onto Bristol Smooth card stock and inked up with some tumbled glass distress oxide ink.

Books, Coffee and Snowfall | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Friday crafty friends! Hope you’re all having a great start to the new year. Popping in this Friday to share my first Newton’s Nook Designs card as them as part of their design team this year. Chase card is inspired by unusually, unexpected levels of snowfall in the Northwest this past December. We did not have a white Christmas, but we had lots of snow to make up for it through New Year’s.

To create this card I started by stamping the image of the girl from the Sips & Stories Stamp Set and colored it using copic markers (R05, 08, 14, 17, 22; Y15, 35; B02, 05; C00, 5, 7; E13, 15, 27, 34, 37, 57, 59) and die cut it using the coordinating  Sips & Stories Die Set

Next I created the card front using the Serene Stripes Stencil to dry emboss the striped pattern, and die cut a window from the panel to create a shaker using the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set.

Next, I created the shaker using distress oxide inks in Kitsch Flamingo and Salvaged Patina, and added glitter accents using the Petite Snow Stencil, and filled it with some clay confetti pieces.

Lastly, I embossed the “I’m so glad that you’re part of my story” which is embossed in gold onto black cardstock and fussy cut before adding it to my card front. 

I hope these cards inspire you to create something winter themed! 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!

Happy crafting!

Sweet Treats | Mama Elephant

Happy Friday Crafty Caffeinated Friends! I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with a guest post! Thank you CLC and Amy for having me again! I’m usually a layer it up card maker, but today I decided to attempt a CAS card inspired by the first challenge from the new Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge, Snowflakes and my winter break being stuck in the snow! 

To create this card, I started by stamping the mug image from Mama Elephant’s Hot Cocoa Stamp Set and the other two images from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set with copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers. One colored I die cut them using the coordinating dies (Sweet Treats and Hot Cocoa).

To assemble the card, I started by dry embossing an A2 card front using the Snowfall Stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs. I layered the images using some foam tape to add a little dimension. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set on to a piece of black paper, and trimmed it down. As always I added some jewels to my card to finish it off.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend!

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.

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!

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!
