Coffee Lovers and Kat Scrappiness Charity Blog Hop

Hello every one… Today, I have a special encouragement coffee card to share with you all.

On my clean-and-simple card, I use the Coffee Talks Clear Stamps Set from Joy Clair Coffee Themed  Collection

I stamped the coffee cup on a piece of watercolor paper with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink Pad, sprinkled with some of the clear embossing powder, and heat it up. Then, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the cup with VersaMark Ink Pad, sprinkled with some of the clear embossing powder, and heat it up. I colored the cup with Koi Watercolor Paint. Then embossed image, resisted the paint.

I trimmed the patterned paper into paper strip and added it on top of the card with permanent adhesive glue. Then, I trimmed the watercolored paper and tore some of the paper for extra distress and grundy look. I added it on the card with permanent adhesive glue.

I embellished the card with some nature twine ribbon.

I am participating at Kat Scrappiness Charity Blog Hop to benefit for the Coffee Oasis, a coffee shop/organization located in Washington State that provides help for our youth including programs for drug abuse, homelessness, violence and poverty. You can read more about their programs here:

Joy Clair is one of the Mega Sponsors for this blog hop and sale benefit to this organization. They are giving away a $25 Gift Certificate for this blog hop.

I am new to this organization but after I read their missions and drive them to do this reach out programs, I am thankful for each of these people who are there to help the young people in need. If you feel to help this organization to continue their works, please visit them and you can also donate directly to Coffee Oasis here:  Even if you can only donate $1 or $5, or more… any amount matters. Every little bit will help a kid in need.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and have time to hop along with us for this benefit and also for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that is hosted by the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog this week!

  1. Helen, I saw this card on your IG and it blew me away, such a wonderful design and all elements go fabulously well together.

  2. Your card is striking as well as elegant! I love the design and the “Stay Strong” message (not just for coffee), it’s beautiful. Thank you for sharing your card and for the inspiration. Thank you also for participating in the hop for such a wonderful organization to help young people in need (always close to my heart).
