2019 SPRING | SUMMER COFFEE LOVERS BLOG HOP

Coffee Lover 2019

Hi everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a very special post. We are so excited to join the super fun 2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The Ton is proud to be a super sponsor for this hop. You can link up your newly created coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects with Spring or Summer theme for a chance to win many prizes, including one coffee/tea themed stamp of choice by The Ton!

This hop runs from Friday, May 3 – Friday, May 10. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog on Sunday, May 12th. See all the details HERE.

I’ve made a spring themed card. After a long Winter finally blooming Spring flowers can be seen everywhere now.  A lovely small wildflower bouquet made during a walk could embellish your table. Maybe you put the bouquet in a cute coffee cup :).

I started off by stamping the cup from Tea Party set in Hampton White pigment ink on a Toned Tan paper panel. I masked the cup and continued stamping the saucer and the floral cluster from Wildflower Bouquet Builder set.

I colored the image with Luminance colored pencils. I chose soft colors for the flowers and the cup to give the card a springlike touch. I fussy cut the right side of the image along the outline and glued the panel on a soft pink cardstock. I cut the pink cardstock again along the outline leaving a thin pink border.

The sentiment is from Hug in a Mug set. I heat embossed the sentiment on the white cardbase in Rose Gold embossing powder. I foam mounted the front panel with the image on the cardbase. To finish off I added some sequins from Summer Soiree and Coral Necklace Couture Mix.

2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hey everyone, Jenny here!  We are so excited to join the super fun 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog HopThe Ton is proud to be a super sponsor and flash sponsor for the this hop. You can leave comments and/or link up your newly created coffee, tea, and/or cocoa projects (Fall Theme) to the hop by 7PM PST each day for a chance to win many prizes, including three (3) $10 gift certificates to The Ton! This hop runs from Friday, September 23 – Friday, September 30. Winners will be announced on Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog on Sunday, October 2nd. See all the details HERE.

For this fabulous blog hop, I created a fun coffee shaker card! Yes, those are real coffee beans in the shaker! I thought it’d be fun to put real coffee beans instead of sequins for a change.

I used our Hug in a Mug stamp set, Caffeine Crush Sentiment stamp set, and few of our beautiful gilding to create this card. This Hug in a Mug stamp set is so easy to use, and you could stamp different latte arts on your cups! How fun is that?!! As a daily latte drinker, it’s a no brainer that I love this set dearly! The Caffeine Crush Sentiment stamp set has lots of clever and fun coffee related sentiments, so if you are a coffee lover, this set is a must-have for you! Without further ado, here is the card!

  • I started the card by stamping the mug image from our Hug in a Mug stamp set on a 140lb watercolor paper in our watercolor safe Noir dye Ink. This ink is very crisp so it’s perfect for stamping images on textured watercolor papers. I tried to scatter the mugs across the panel randomly looking as possible.
  • I stamped the solid coffee liquid image inside the mugs in our Found Topaz dye ink to lay down the base color. I purposely stamped lightly to give room for watercoloring. Then I filled in the mug in different brown watercolors. I also colored the background in green color. I used Mijello Gold Mission Watercolors for this project, except Red Gold Gansai Tambi watercolor for the mug handles.
  • When the watercolored panel was completely dry, I cut down the panel to a square slightly smaller than 6″x6″. Then I used 2 largest dies from our Double Stitched Circle dies.
  • I stamped the latte art images on the mugs only on the most outer frame with embossing ink and heat embossed in white.
  • I stamped the sentiment from our Caffeine Crush Sentiment stamp set on the central circle piece in embossing ink and heat embossed in gold. This sentiment just cracks me up! lol!
  • I built the shaker frame by adding acetate and foam tapes and filled the shaker with real coffee beans. I had to use 4 layers of foam tape to give enough room for the coffee beans to shake. I sealed the shaker frame with our Gold Adhesive Glitter paper. I pealed the backing of the Gold Adhesive Glitter paper  and mounted the shaker on the 6″x6″ card base.
  • I adhered our beautiful Gold Glitter tape (thin) on the edges of the shaker and added gold metallic thread to add interest.
  • I finished the card by adding our Medallion Gold and Glossy Black sequins.
