Coffee Capital | Inspired by Challenge - All the Details


Hello and Welcome to another new Inspired By Challenge!  There is also an optional sketch challenge:


I'm also linking up to the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:


Here's how I was inspired, do you see how I interpreted each of the windows?


I combined two different Super Sponsors from the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:


Let's chat about Flora & Fauna first:


I combined:
Hello Sunshine Flowers 
Fern Die
Mini Envelope Die


I managed to include some other elements from my stash.  The lower right hand corner, I used a page from a japanese novel and die cut the Starbucks logo from an upcycled coffee cup sleeve.  All the felt I used on my project is from Impress.


From Impress I used:

Small Coffee Cup
Coffee Cup Stamp with Words on Side
Impress Washington Sayings clear set


I can't wait to see how my other teamies were inspired, please check out the Inspired by Challenge Blog!

2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day Six



Hey Hey!  It's Day Six of the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  I'm back with another project.  I've been able to post once a day for the hop which is fun!  Although keeping things real, I whipped this up last night!  Today I'm featuring Super Sponsor Evelin T Designs!


I used the Coffee Art set.  The pattern paper is by Echo Park Paper and  is from their Good Day Sunshine collection.  It reminds me of latte art, what do you think?


My card seemed a bit too clean + simple so I added the strip from an upcycled Starbucks Coffee Sleeve.  I love how it add a bit more to the overall design.


Did you know that Evelin T Designs recently added digital designs?  They are doing a FREEBIE too so make sure you check them all out HERE.

2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day Five





Hello and Welcome to Day Five of the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  


This card has a couple different manufacturers:

Stamp | Stencil  -  CAS-ual Fridays
Glitter Gel - Therm o Web | Gina K Designs
reinker - Impress Cards and Crafts

You can't really tell but those stenciled coffee beans are GLITTERY and add so much texture to the overall design.  Don't you love the sentiment, it's from the Coffee'isms set.


I'm loving the Teal + Espresso color combo, how about you?


That's it for me!  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is a Super Sponsor for this hop!  Make sure you check out their Sale:

Crafty Elves' Countdown to the Holiday - May 2020!




I'm so excited to be joining the Crafty Elves' Countdown to Christmas this month.  It's a handful of creative designers that join each month on the 25th and share some of their holiday cards.  This was perfect timing as I was cleaning a couple weeks ago and hit the jackpot of holiday stamps that I had bought last year and they were never inked up!

These are the designers:

So here are the four cards I made especially for today:


 I was able to work in some cocoa cards so I'm linking up to the Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop.  We recently went to themeless hops so anything goes, it just needs to have coffee, tea, cocoa, or hot apple cider!



Let's chat about the Hello Bluebird duo first.  So I struck the motherlode when I was cleaning a couple weeks ago.  I came across a bunch of Hello Bluebird winter sets.  Today I'm featuring their Cocoa Party set that you can pick up at Butterfly Reflections Ink who is a Super Sponsor for the hop.

I've teamed those cute critters up with their Gallery Frame #4 and Christmas Words #1 dies.  


For my second card I used the same stamp set but also added their Glacier Peaks Dies + Warm Wishes Words Die.  For both of the cards, I used the Basic Grey Juniper Berry 6x6.  This is also when I should note that my original design did not include the Glacier Peaks until my lovely daughter said it needed 'more'.


I used the same copics for both of my Hello Bluebird cards:
R20 | R22
R14 | R24
G03 | G05
BG10
BG13 | BG15
E30 | YR01
E31
E40 | E42
N2 | N3
C00 | C1

My next two cards feature Clearly Besotted!  I managed to mix 'n match a handful of their stamps.  By the way, they are a new Super Sponsor to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


This first card uses a panel from the Basic Grey 6x6.  I used the Seasonal Line up with the Home Sweet Home set.


For my final card I combined the Seasonal Line Up with Scene It Seasons.  The die cut semi circle is by Super Sponsor Studio Katia!


I used the same copics for both of my Clearly Besotted cards with the exception of the V + BV ones, those are only for my Season's Greeting Card.

R20 | R22
YR0000 | YR00
Y00 | Y11
YG01 | YG03
G000
BG000 | BG10
BV00000
V01 | V91
E41 | E43
C00 | C1
N3 | N5

Remember to check out the other Crafty Elves'.  Thanks for letting me join in the fun!!!

2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Day Two




Hello!  Have you checked out the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop?  It just started yesterday and runs through next Friday!  TONS of inspiration and Prizes!

Today I'm featuring Trinity Stamps!


Isn't that a fun set?  It's called Happy Hour!  I teamed it up with one of their Coffee Bean Heart Sprinkle Mix.  The 'espresso' is from their Caffeinated Sentiments [on sale now!]. 

I used their 4-Bar Card Die set, so fun, so much stitching!


My apologies, there is no label on the coffee bean embossing folder.  I have no idea who makes it.  The coffee beans are brads from Impress, it's their Coffee Brads.  [Edited to add, thanks to my friend Carla, it is a retired embossing folder by Super Sponsor Elizabeth Craft Designs.]

Both Trinity Stamps + Impress Cards and Crafts are Super Sponsors for this hop!  Link up a project for a chance to win.  I hope that you join in the fun!
