Stamped Cards for the Coffee Lover (Fun Stampers Journey)


Today, I'm joining along with list of fabulous designers from Fun Stampers Journey AND the Coffee Lovers Cardmaking Blog design team as we collaborate together to bring you a fun blog hop featuring ALL.THINGS.COFFEE!

Fun Stampers Journey has the really fun coffee-themed stamp & die products to help you coffee-addicted crafters get your craft on and I've got the inspiration!

What's even more fun is that Fun Stampers Journey is offering a $25 Gift Certificate to one winner! In order to be eligible you must visit each blog (the entire list is at the bottom of this post) and comment on each one by 11:55pm PST on Friday July 27, 2018. The winner will be announced on the Fun Stampers Journey Blog.



This first card features a really fun stamp set called Coffee Helps that has a really playful set of coffee cup elements and could even be flexible enough to double for your tea-loving friends when used with the "Cup Full of Happiness" sentiment. 



For my card, I stamped some of the more subtle images from the Coffee Helps set in the background like the coffee beans and the cup stain, added in a sentiment from the Coffee Helps stamp set and embellished it with a handmade embellishment using a stand-alone die-set called Coffee First.

I absolutely ADORE the stand-alone die-set because the possibilities are endless!  For my handmade embellishment, I die-cut the cup and the domed lid out of Color Splash Sheet which is a watercolor paper and then colored the bottom with our Journey Color Splash pencils. Once it was dry I flicked Black Licorice silk on top to resemble mocha chips. I was going for a mocha chip frappaccino look here. For the domed top, I took the Color Splash sheet and smeared it with Journey Modeling Paste to resemble the whip cream, sprinkled with Journey Sparkle Cuts and then die-cut another domed lid from Clearview Sheet and just stuck it on top. The Clearview Sheet dried onto the Journey Modeling Paste so not adhesive was necessary. It was finished off with straw from the Coffee First die set and a heart punched using the Punch Handle and Love Is Cartridge.


Just for fun, I wanted to make up a cute little gift-card holder to share how easy it is to throw together a little giftie for your coffee-loving friends with the the Coffee Helps Stamp & Die bundle.


The other die featured here is the Window Pocket Die. I consider this a MUST HAVE. It is my go-to when I need a quick gift for any occasion as it can be dressed up with any stamp set and virtually every gift card looks darling peeking out from the window. This one is very simply embellished with the beans and coffee stains stamped from the Coffee Helps Stamp Set, and embellished with an image and sentiment from that same set. The coffee cup was die cut using the coordinating die which can be purchased with the stamp as a bundle deal for a discount.
