Paper craft project no. 446: Coffee cards

  

Over at the STAMPlorations blog, we're participating in the fun Summer Coffee Lovers hop. We're also releasing 8 single coffee/tea-themed stamps sets (find them here).


I'm sharing a couple of cards I made featuring the new stamps and a couple of the new CUTplorations thin metal dies that will be released on July 3.

CARD #1: Happy Coffee
On my card base, I stamped the Framed Coffee Word Art (Black) in coffee archival ink and stamped the Framed Coffee Pot on scrap and cut it out. Using the medium die in the CUTplorations Crazy Double-Stitched Rectangles, I die-cut thin chipboard. I also die-cut the "happy" twice and then layered. I'm not much of an actual layers girl when it comes to card-making, but I was pretty happy with this card because it came together quickly.


CARD #2: Happiness in a Cup
Now here's my kind of card -- a one layer ;o) I stamped the Coffee Cup Row border and masked it before stamping the Framed Coffee Word Art (Black) on the bottom part of my card. I gave the cups a splash of color using the splatter stamp in Art Marks and stamping some bright yellow, pink, and cyan inks. Then I simply finished it with a sentiment from Coffee Happy.

Check out the cards that the STAMPlorations girls made. Comment on the STAMPlorations blog and on the designers' blog for a chance to win one of the 8 new coffee/tea stamps -- we'll be picking 3 lucky commenters! Comment by Friday, June 24.

And for Summer Coffee Lovers hop participants, all orders placed on the STAMPlorations store are 15% off until June 28. (No minimum order.) Use the coupon code SUMMERCLBH on checkout.
