And today on my projects, I am using the new Coffee Petites with CUTplorations Stitched Circle Die.

Coffee Loving Winter Blog Hop: STAMPlorations

My first project is planner shaker clips. I had so much fun creating them! First, I stamped the images on Canson watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink because I wanted to watercolor them. White cardstock will work too if you only want to color with coloring pencils or markers.

Then I die cut each of them with the matching circle stitched die. To create the shaker, I used my FUSE tool and using the circle stitched die as the guide. For the shaker filler, I found the clear/white big glitter at Walmart (also you can find similar one at any craft store). For the clips, I use the Jumbo Paper clips also I got from Walmart (or you can find at any office supply store). I used my glue gun to attach the paper clip on the back of the shaker circles.

I stamped the images from Coffee Petites with CUTplorations Stitched Circle Die on a piece of canson watercolor with Versafine Onyx Black ink and loose-watercolored them with Sakura Koi Watercolors and brush. I added some splatters, too. Then I die cut the panel with Crafting Desert Divas – Fancy Frames dies. I added the outline frame with Tombow mono permanent adhesive and the middle panel I used 3D foam tape for extra dimension on the card.

For the sentiment on my card, I use Coffee Word Die – CUTplorations that I cut it out 5 times with kraft cardstock to create a thick chipboard. Then I stamped one of the sentiments from Anywhere There’s Coffee Stamps & Die Set – Shery Russ Designs on white cardstock and cut out the word into word strips and added some lines around the border with my journaling pen. I added the sentiments on the card 🙂

I go with some colors in this Winter 🙂 And I hope these projects inspire you to create coffee/tea/cocoa theme projects and link them up with us at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog this week! We would love to see yours and be inspired by you, too!
