Happy National Coffee Day

HAPPY NATIONAL COFFEE DAY to all the coffee lovers out there!!! Today, I join the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Papercarfters community kicking off our ALL WEEK LONG celebration.

The National Coffee Day Blog Hop starts at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog where you can read the detail about the blog hop, how you enter to win the prizes from the generous and amazing SUPER SPONSORS!!! Make sure you read the post carefully.

For this first day of the blog hop, I made a slimline coffee card using the Perfect Blend stamp set, coordinating Coffee Cup Die, Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies, Square Framelit Dies, and Fall Harvest Paper Collection Variety Pack.

I cut out a piece of Neenah white cardstock to make the slimeline card base. Then I cut the leaves pattern paper with the Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies. I also cut out a piece of white cardstock with one of the slimline framelit dies.

I added each cut out background layers on the card with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent from Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L who is also a super sponsor.

I had fun creating this coffee cup with paper piecing technique. I stamped the images on Neenah white cardstock, and 2 pattern papers with VersaFine Clair Nocturne.

I cut out the cup and foam with the matching die, and then I fussy cut the pattern papers with micro-tip scissors. I added each piece using the E-Z Runner Grand Permanent. And then I added it on the card with the same adhesive runner.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad and then cut it out with the Square Frameline Dies. I added it below the cup with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Adhesive.

I stamped the coffee bean with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad and cut out the coordinating die. I wanted to give them some shine and sort of look like embellishment enamels, so I inked each of the beans with VersaMark ink and sprinkled with some extra fine clear embossing powder. I held the bean down with twizzers when I heated it with craft heater. I added each coffee bean on the card with Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L Dots Mini.
