Collaboration Blog Hop ~ Cup of Happiness

Coffee Loving Cardmakers & Fun Stampers Journey

Hello hello hello everyone… Welcome… Today is the day for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Fun Stampers Journey Collaboration Blog Hop!

I am super excited to be part of this fun collaboration blog hop with them. Today I have 2 cards to share with you all!

On my first clean-and-simple card, I used the Coffee First Die Set and cut some of the pretty papers from Amy Tan Sketchook – American Crafts 6×6 Paper Pad. I added the cup on the card with 3D foam tape. I also use some other papers from the same paper pad on the background.

I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Helps Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink Pad, and then I fussy cut it around the word. I added on the card with 3D foam tape, too.

I embellished the cup with the Journey Thread Whip Cream and I added some of the Fashion Silver.

On the second card, I created the background using Sakura Koi watercolor travel set. I simply painted the green and brown stripes on a piece of watercolor paper using flat brush and dried it with craft heater.

I stamped the cup from Coffee Helps Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink Pad, and I cut the cut using the matching cup die from Coffee Helps Die Set. Then, I colored the cup with Sakura Koi watercolor travel set. I added it on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

For the sentiment, I stamped one of the sentiments from Coffee Helps Stamp Set using VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink Pad. I fussy cut the sentiment word. I added the sentiment on the card with 3D foam tape.

I embellished this card with one of the Hello Word Bubbles. They are wooden word embellishment, so fun to use on projects. I added it on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I hope you all enjoy these cards… And I would like to thank Fun Stampers Journey for this amazing collaboration blog hop with Coffee Loving Cardmakers!
