Foiled Coffee

Happy Friday! Ericka here and today is the last day of the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I hope you have had the chance to hop along and get inspired by all of the beautiful creations! I have one more coffee inspiration using Katzelkraft Coffee and Tea to Go set.

This is a great set and I love the sentiments that are included.

Recently, I've been having fun using foils. I decided to use reactive spray on a tag with pink foil. I had some extra foiled papers and decided to stamp the cup on this rainbow piece.

Is there anything better than a rainbow coffee cup?

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out my blog Strangely Creative for more details and a list of supplies.

Penguins love Coffee

Hi Everyone,

It's Topflight Stamps day! 
And since it's also the spring/summer Coffee Blog hop you get a coffee card from me today!
Topflight Stamps is a sponsor for the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and is offering up a $25 gift card. 

Topflight Stamps is one of the Super Sponsors.

I first stamped the half tone circle in Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I stamped the penguin, masked it and then the coffee cup and cut them out. Colored them with Inktense and markers. I then glued the penguin/cup onto the card. Trimmed it and added a strip of patterned paper at the bottom and some Bakers Twine.

I hope you liked this! See you next week with more Topflight Stamps inspiration.

Here are the stamp supplies I used:

Stop Making Me Happy

Hello, everyone!  Topflight Stamps is a sponsor for the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and is offering up a $25 gift card.  Read more about how to win by clicking above.  We hope you'll join in the fun!

My card started with the Katzelkraft Relax Sentiment. I knew I wanted to pair it with the Katzelkraft Owl. This tiny little owl's expression just says it all!

I couldn't resist playing with the sentiment and making it all about coffee.  I was thankful for my MISTI in doing that.  It made it so much easier to position the Katzelkraft Coffee & Tea To Go word within the cup. Whew!

I colored up the images using Copics.  I had intended the card to be done then but it didn't feel quite right. 

Aha!  The card felt a tad stark so I used the Visible Image Collision stencil along with Prism Ink leftover on my blender brushes to add a subtle background.

I love how this turned out, especially with that background to add a little something-something!

I'll be back with you next week. Until then, why don't you check out the new products that have come into the TFS shop!  You can shop your heart out using this 12% off coupon!

Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop -- The Second Card!

Greetings! It's Kathi again with another card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. As you know, Topflight Stamps is a sponsor and is offering  a $25 gift card to one lucky person. All winners will be announced on the Coffee Lover's Blog.

Basically, the safety warning sentiment reminded me that I had the Caution Washi tape in my stash and also had the Redemption Stencil which had words like Dark, Danger, Poison, Toxic, etc, all of which describe my usual morning mood. Hence this card. 

So, I stamped the cat, fussy-cut him, edged him with a black pen, then colored him with Copic markers. Yellow Ombre ink was first sponged over the Redemption stencil onto Kraft cardstock. It felt a little plain, so I sponged the same ink over the Time Tunnel stencil, trimmed and edged the panel, then added Caution Washi tape. 

The coffee cup was die-cut from cardboard, white metallic paper, and textured Kraft cardstock. The coffee cup was painted with Pumpkin Soup and Yellow Submarine Fresco Chalk Paints. Prism Ink was was sponged over the Steampunk Man stencil, then heat set with clear embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped onto Kraft cardstock with Red Chili Prism Ink.

2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Loving Blog Hop

Hi there! It's Kathi here today sharing a card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Topflight Stamps is a sponsor. Topflight is offering a $25 gift card to one lucky person. All winners will be announced on the Coffee Lover's Blog. Pretty nifty, eh?

 I'm a somewhat maniacal coffee lover, I decided to play along. I've got one card for right now that kind of went south several times. I love shaker cards, but they don't seem to like me. If the card that's in my desk goes well, you might see that later today. 

 Pink Jellybean, Ocean Spray, Blue Lagoon, and Canary Yellow Prism Inks were sponged over the  Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Stencil onto white cardstock. A coffee cup die was used to cut the stenciled paper. The stenciled cardstock was trimmed to 5.75" square and the aperture and card's edges were sponged with the Blue Lagoon ink.

The bear from the Morning Clear Stamp Set  was stamped, fussy-cut, edged with a finalizer, and colored with Copic markers. The sentiment from the set was stamped onto patterned paper using Onyx Black VersaFine Ink by Tsukineko. I really love using this ink for sentiments and other fine detailed stamps. 

I built the shaker components of the card, popped the card front onto a 6x6 card, then added the colored bear to finish the card.

Planner Page with PaperArtsy

Hi Topflight Stamp Fans, Karen Bearse here with a Mix Media Monday Planner Page. This page was designed from an earlier art journal page. I love taking a page that I have made or been inspiration by, from a social media site & recreating it to give it a 2nd life. This blog has tons of great inspiration! It is fun to make it the base for another type of project. You can find the link to the tutorial on my blog here.

Working in a planner is a great way to document this time in our lives with things that may be different or a new habit or tradition. Maybe it will stay when things (hopefully) get back to normal or maybe it is just a unique thing to do during this time- either way documenting is a great way to remember.

Products used: Sara Naumann Stamps by PaperArtsy ESN 41 & 43.

Fresco Finish Paint in Amethyst, Snowflake & Smoked Paprika. Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you have a chance to get inky!!

Tiny Fairy Book with Lavinia Stamps

Happy Saturday folks, Lisa Hoel here! I hope all is well with you and you have a chance to enjoy the long weekend if you are here in the States. I have a fun little Tiny Book project to share with you today and it is filled with fabulous Lavinia fairy stamps. (I really love their stamps!) Take a look:

Front of the little book stamped with Fairy Door

This little book is only three inches tall! It is indeed a tiny book and a fun format to showcase a stamped scene.

Back of the little book

I created a panoramic accordion foldout to form the pages on the inside:

I wanted to decorate the back side too so I added collage paper and some stamping plus stencil monoprinting. You can see photos over on my blog post.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't miss out on the Memorial Weekend SALE going on over at Topflight Stamps – now through Monday!

2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Hop

Hello Coffee Lovers! Welcome to the Topflight Stamps. We are so excited to be a sponsor for the 2020 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! We look forward to this hop every time so thank you for stopping by. Topflight is offering a $25 gift card to one lucky person.  All winners will be announced on the Coffee Lover's Blog.

Today Ericka from Strangely Creative has created a couple of cards with the PaperArtsy Scrapcosy 13 and a gel press.

The PaperArtsy Scrapcosy13 set works for both coffee and tea drinkers.

The gel press is such a fun way to create interesting and unique backgrounds. For the first card, Ericka used acrylic paints on the gel press for a bright summery look.

Ericka used Distress Oxides on her gel plate to create a vintage look for her second coffee card.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out Ericka's blog for more details on how she created these pretty coffee cards.

Also be sure to stop by the blog this week for more Design Team coffee inspiration!
