This hop runs from Friday, May. 22. to Friday, May. 29. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog . See all the details HERE.

I made a coffee themed ( it could be a cup of hot cocoa, if you want 🙂 ) shaker card using our Tea Party coordinating die set and some of our new items from May Release : Rose Patch stamp and die set and Oval Nested die.


I started off by cutting the front oval piece. I cut it using the cup die from the Tea Party coordinating die and an Oval Nested die. I cut it from some gold glitter paper and white cardstock and adhered them together to make the panel sturdier. I adhered a piece of clear acetate on the back of the panel and set it aside.


Next I prepared the background panel. I watercolored the panel in ombre brown. I wanted that the brown reminds you of coffee or cocoa, so I made the background upwards from the middle of the cup very bright. After the background panel was dry I drew a few lines using a gold gel pen.

I mounted the background flat on a creme cardbase and made the shaker part by adding the front piece using foam tape. I used Hot Cocoa Couture Mix as the shaker elements.


To embellish the card front I arranged a small rose bouquet using Rose Patch, Bountiful Leaves and Floral Bits stamp set and coordinating dies. The orange flowers were stamped in  Amber CitrineCoraline HybridCoral Cavern and the leaves in  Soft GardenBright FernDeep Emerald.

The sentiment is from Easy Expressions. I gold heat embossed the handwritten part and stamped the rest in Noir. I cut it using the coordinating die and added it to the card.

I finished off the card with three Medallion Gold sequins.


I hope you enjoyed my card today. Don’t forget to hop over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with a cup of coffee, tea or cocoa ready in your hand, as there are so many other participants playing along on this hop.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have a happy hopping!

    Love your coffee card. I think your layout, with the striped background, will be great for many different themes, too.
