2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 1 | Bloomdala Coffee Cup To Go

Hello again everyone… Today is the day all the coffee/tea/cocoa lovers has been waiting for. The 2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has begun!

This blog hop is hosted by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! It starts from Friday, May 3, 2019 until Friday, May 10, 2019. You all are invited to create any coffee/tea/cocoa projects with Spring or Summer theme and link up your projects with us HERE until Friday, May 10th at 11:55 pm pacific. You also can find the full list of the amazing, generous Super Sponsors there.

Here’s my card today with stamps, dies, stencils, and digital stamps from our Super Sponsor STAMPlorations, together with Hero Arts Ink Pad, and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, who are also Super Sponsors.

On both of my cards, I use the gorgeous Bloomdala Coffee Cup To Go digital stamp. Yup… STAMPlorations now has digital stamps. Check all the digital designs here.

On my first card, I printed the cup on a glossy photo paper. I added some of the alcohol inks drops, added some alcohol blending solution on it, and I use straw to blend them together. It is a fun simple way of adding colors on this cup. Once the inks dried, I fussy cup the cup with scissors.

On a black cardstock, I used Make Marks 6 ARTplorations Stencil,  Unicorn Pigment Ink Pad, and Blending Brush to add the faux stitching on the background.

I cut that black cardstock with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. I added both the background panel and cup on a white card with E-Z Runner® Grand Adhesive.

I cut out a white cardstock using the Coffee Fix Phrase Die and I added it on the card with permanent glue pen adhesive.

This second card is a coffee cup to go shaped card. I created it using the Silhouette Studio software. I open the cup file on the software, resized it to 5.5″ tall, and then I trace the shape to create the cutting line.

I create the card base on the software, and then I use the Weld feature to combine 2 shapes. Then, I use the Print-and-Cut feature to print the cup, then cut it my Silhouette Cameo 3. Then I cut the cup shaped card.

I colored the front cup image with Prismacolors Colored Pencils. And I added it on the card base with E-Z Runner® Grand Adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from What’s Brewing Stamp Set on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad, then I cut it with Bracket Labels/Tags Nesting Dies. I also stamped the inside of the card with the same ink and other sentiment that from the same stamp set.

I added the sentiment tag on the top of the card with 3D circle foam tape and tied it up with natural burlap twine.
