Coffee Lovers Blog Hop // Spring 2017

Good morning, crafters!

Whose ready for another round of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop? I AM! This time around it's the spring edition which, if you're anywhere on the east coast, will make you cringe as the temperature outside in no way says "spring". Hopefully the weather warms up soon, but in the meantime we have dozens of cute coffee projects to look at. Let me show you mine!

I decided to go out of my comfort zone for this project and create a shaker card. I started with a stitched rectangle panel and cut a few mug shapes out of the center of it to make my openings. I created another white panel for underneath and stamped a coffee bean image repeatedly. Later I colored them with my Copic markers.

I places some clear sequins on the areas that would show through and adhered my top panel with some foam tape. I finished off the card with a sentiment strip that reads "How have you bean?" and a scalloped strip that is stamped with a cute steam image. Kind of looks like woodgrain, doesn't it?

I'm so happy with the way this project turned out and that I was able to use my Cup of Joy release again. They're some of my favorite sets in my collection.

Also I'm giving away a $20 gift certificate to my shop to one lucky crafter who links up her project on the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post. You can add your submission here.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your hop...thanks for stopping by!

I used a few other RAH goodies on my project as well. I started out by creating a top folding qhite card base and then I added a few pieces of pattern papersthat I die cut with the Find the Beauty Die Set from RAH. I adhered the second layer with some fun foam for a little height. Then I stamped the bunny image and a few flowers from the Bunny Hugs set onto a tag die cut from the Folded Gift Tag Die Set. Then I stamped an additional bunny onto another piece of paper and colored it in with Copics. I fussy cut the image out and adhered it over the original. I added the tag to the panel and glued a bow to the top.

I stamped the sentiment in some coordinating blue ink and used a circle die cut to cut it out. I added one of the small flowers from the set over the sentiment. This set is just so cute!!! I wanted a touch of sparkle so I added some sparkling clear sequins in different sizes.

Stay tuned all month for more great inspiration from the Design Team using March's Spring Release!!


Blessed Stamped Wreath Card by Laurie S. // RAH Stamps March Release

Hi there friends!  Laurie Schmidlin here with you today!  Even though I haven't yet seen one sign of Spring outside where I live, Spring sure has arrived in my stamp room!  Three brand new Right at Home goodies were delivered the other day and things sure are looking more cheerful around here!  :-)

To create this card, I startedby stamping the beautiful flowers and leaves from the new Bunny Hugs stamp set in a wreath pattern.  The wonderful quote in the center of the wreath is from the new His Love stamp set.  I really love the mix of fonts that Nicole has included in this set!

Along the bottom, I adhered the blessed die cut from the new Script Greetings Die Set.  This die set is absolutely a must have for me!  I adore the lovely script and the the fact that it comes with the dies to create mats for each of the words is genius!

To give the die cut just a little bit more height, I first die cut the sentiment using white cardstock then die cut it again using black and adhered them together.  This almost gives the appearance of chipboard.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the new arrivals in the Right at Home Shop you can see them HERE.

Thanks so much for joining me here today!
