Spring/Summer Coffee Lover Hop Day 1

Hello hello hello everyone! Happy Friday and it is the kick off day for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!!

If you are new to this Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog to read all about it and to see the full list of the generous Super Sponsors.

This hop and link up party starts today, Friday, May 22, 2020 through Friday, May 29, 2020. We don’t have any specific theme but your projects still do need to have a caffeinated element [coffee, tea, cocoa, hot apple cider]. All of your projects that you link up with us should be new…please no back linking. The inlinkz link up will be close on Friday, May 29th at 11:55 pm Pacific (Saturday, May 30 th at 2:55 AM Easter Time).

On my card for this first day, I use the Coffee and Flowers from Super Sponsor Graciellie Design. She has a wonderful collection of Coffee/Tea themed digital stamps and papers.

I printed the image and sentiment on a Neenah Solar 80 lbs white cardstock using Brother Laser Printer and the before I colored it, I dried the printer ink using craft heater.

One of my favorite ways working with digital stamps is the Silhouette Print-and-Cut Feature. I can print and cut a bunch of image in a jiffy, no tears becuase of fussy cutting… hahahaha…

I colored the image using Arteza Real Brushes and waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater after that.

I trimmed the sentiment into a sentiment banner with paper trimmer and scissors.

For the background, I used the Distressed Line DecoFoil Clear Toner Sheet and Lapis Watercolor DecoFoil Transfer Sheet from the Super Sponsor Therm O Web.

I trimmed the clear toner sheet into 4.25″ x 5.5″ and I trimmed the foil transfer sheet slightly bigger that the toner sheet. I put them inside the carrier paper that came with the clear toner package, and then I run them through my laminator that I got from Amazon.

I trimmed the clear toner into 4″ x 5.25″ and I added it on top of a white card using E-Z Runner Permanent Strips from the Super Sponsor Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I added the portion of the runner permanent strips on the back of the solid image to hide the glue.

I added the coffee mug and sentiment on top of the card with the same adhesive runner and 3D foam tape. I embellished the card with some of the pearl gems from my stash.

  1. Love your background. It’s gorgeous. Lucky you to have a Silhouette… though some of us actually enjoy the fussy cutting, lol – even if it can be laborious. But oh, I love your foiled background. I may just have to try that the long way – using a stencil and Deco Transfer Gel. I’m sure it will still be gorgeous…in fact, I wonder what it would be like with multicoloured leafing…h’mm. It’s not exactly the same as yours, but the stencil is one of my favourites. Lovely art and a new challenge blog to visit, so thank you for that.
    God bless
