Oh Frap – It’s the Last Day

Oh Frap – It’s the Last Day

All good things must come to an end it’s the last day of the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop!  =(  I’ve had such a great time playing and going through all the amazing cards posted by fellow coffee lovers.  Be sure to check it out.

This is a z-fold card uses a combo of different products.  The paper is from the Prickly Pear Paper Pack.  The birthday stamps are a retired set from CTMH.  The “Oh Frap” is from Stamplorations.  The coffee cup and whipped topping from Sugar Pea Designs.  The girl is Kimmy from Unity Stamps.  I love showcasing how well CTMH products work with everyone’s products.  You can’t go wrong.

Cut “Oh Frap” two times.  Once in Sea Glass and once in Black.  Layer slightly offset so that you have the black looking like a shadow behind the Sea Glass.  Put the coffee cup and “Oh Frap” on the top part of the Z-Fold so they hang off.

When you open the card up, you can see the three different panels unfold.  The rest of the story comes out.  Great card to have on hand when you forget someone’s birthday.  The girl is “Kimmie” by Angie Blom at Unity Stamps.  I love her girls! They are amazing.  Kimmie is one of the ones with coffee and she fits the bill for a summer girl for this bloghop.

I stamped her on the CTMH watercolor paper which is amazing for stamping and watercoloring.  Stamp the image using Memento ink to prevent the bleed.  I used the CTMH watercolor palette and the watercolor brushes to paint Kimmie.

Good Days Start with Coffee

Good Days Start with Coffee

I had a fun time making this card.  Been in a shaker cardmaking mode for a bit and this was great fun to use the coffee beans in the shaker with various toppings from Queen and Company.   Another card for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.

I used Stamplorations coffee mug to cut out the center of the shaker from No Worries paper from CTMH.  Sapphire is the background cardstock (25% off this month).  Cut transparency out  and put on the back of the paper creating the window.  For the coffee beans to work, you need to double layer 3D foam tape.  Create a box on the Sapphire cardstock and add your shaker fillings in.

Mount the top of the card on the 3D foam tape.  Stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things – LLD Perk Up in Sapphire on Lagoon paper.  Cut out the  “and you”.    Put the sentiments as shown.

Some of the beans are a little big and don’t shake around very well.  Love the brown and blue combination.  The card smells amazing with the coffee beans in it.  =)

Perk Up!

Perk Up:

Perk Up is a stamp set “Kimmie Girl” from Unity Stamps.  It’s part of the Angiegirl collection.  Be forewarned, they are all super cute!  I picked this set up to use for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop because she looks like she’s ready for summer.

It’s all stamped on the CTMH watercolor paper, which is a smooth watercolor paper that allows for great movement of the watercolor and you can layer it.  I stamped Kimmie and the sentiment in Memento ink and masked her using masking fluid.  Then created the background with the watercolor palette from CTMH.

Once the background was dried, I rubbed of the masking fluid and painted Kimmie with the palette.  Take the CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush and go over the hearts on her shirt and on the cup to give them a little sparkle.  If you like using Wink of Stella, you need to check out the Shimmer Brushes from CTMH.  Better price point, more shimmer, and more juice!

Happiness in a Cup!

Happiness in a Cup!

This super fun card is “happy” because of all the bright colors and that for some of us, coffee is happiness.  Love the smell of fresh coffee beans and coffee brewing.  This card is linked to the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  Stop and check out all the great cards. Better yet, whip out your own coffee project and join the fun.   It’s also made using the Freshly Made Sketches 292.

The papers are Prickly Pear.  The colors in the paper pack are nice and bright, just right for Summer.  Love the rainbow paper in the pack.  

The sketch is simple and fun to make.  The dies for the circles are from CTMH.  The coffee cup is Sugar Pea Design’s Coffee To Go Cup die set.  The sentiment is from Stamplorations Coffee Happy.

 No Worries Family Layout

Wanted to share another great layout from the workshop you can get free when you place a $25.00 order.  Cocoa cardstock is the base for all of the layouts in the workshop and you can get it for 25% off.  The No Worries sequins and the Enamel and Glitter Blue Dots Duo add the bling to the pages.

The title “Family” comes from the No Worries Compliments.  The mix in the Compliments is kraft chipboard and stickers.  On the arrows, put a piece of the scraps from one of the background and texture papers.

You can add flip flaps – 4×6, 3×4 and 3×3 – to get more pictures on the layout.   Here’s some close ups of the different elements from the pages that I just love.  You always need a layout for family events.

Store these great layouts in our wonderful albums.  Get your albums this month Buy One Get One 50% off.  =)

Dear Coffee

Dear Coffee:

This is my 3rd link for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  It’s created from the Little Dreamer Workshop Your Way paper pack.  I used the Sugar Pea Challenge for the  pattern.

Cut up the Picture My Life sheets.  Trim one of the backgrounds down and one with the unicorn down so they will fit on the card as shown.  Use the CTMH clear shimmer brush to color the unicorn in so he’s magical.  Use the Gold Shimmer Brush on his mane and tail.

The coffee cup comes from the Jack Cardmaking Stamp with dies.  Just love that I have a coffee cup with a die to use on any card I make!  Use 3D foam tape under the cup for dimension.

The sentiment “Dear Coffee” comes from I’m not sure where!  I can’t find the stamp on my desk!  Imagine that!  LOL.  Will update the post when I find it.

The little gems – Little Dreamer Glitter Gems are just awesome.  Last Seasonal Expressions, the Sugar Rush Glitter Gems stock sold out before the end of the Seasonal Expressions 1.  Another great embellishment to not miss out on and stock up on.  Bitty Sparkles are used to add little sparkles here and there.
