I Love Brew Cuppa Friendship Card // 2018 Fall & Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hey, caffeine-loving friends!

I am super excited today because I’m participating in another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop hosted by Amy Tsuruta! This is one of my favorite events to take part in because coffee is my everything. In fact, I’m already thinking about tomorrow’s cup. I try to limit myself to one per day otherwise I get a little too jittery, LOL.

Let’s get started…

I Love Brew Cuppa Friendship Card for the 2018 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop on www.rightathomeshop.com/blog

To start my card I stamped one of the girl images from Cuppa Friendship onto her coordinating die-cut in an alcohol marker-friendly ink. Then I started coloring her in! This is the most time-consuming part of this card, but is best enjoyed with some music playing and (you guessed it) a fresh brew sitting nearby.

After my coffee cutie was all colored I started assembling my focal panel. I cut a piece of A2 white cardstock with my Scallop Stitches Die Set. Along the bottom of the panel I spelled out the word “brew” with my Folk Alphabet Solid stamp set. I didn’t stamp them quite yet as I wanted to be sure I spaced them evenly. Once I had it just perfect, I stamped each letter using my Mini MISTI and a variety of ink colors that matched my girl.

After I stamped “brew” I also stamped the letter “I” above it, but off to the left. My thought was the phrase would read “I (love) brew”, but instead of putting “love” I would put the girl holding a mug! Pretty cute, huh?!

Once I was finished stamping the solid letters I moved on to the detail layers using Folk Alphabet Detail. I adhered this panel onto a kraft cardbase and popped the girl up using foam tape. Around her I popped up three hearts that are also included in the stamp set.

Hello Fall Pumpkin Spice Season Letterboard Card

Hello, November!

Can you believe October is already over?! I was still recovering from how fast September went and, poof, Octobers gone. Ugh, time flies.

Now that fall has officially arrived I decided to make a card inspired by the piles (and piles) of leaves that all around my neighborhood. And one of the sweet girls from Pumpkin Spice Season fit the theme perfectly.

Let’s get started…

Hello Fall Pumpkin Spice Season Letterboard Card // rightathomeshop.com/blog

To start off, I stamped the girl playing in leaves onto her coordinating die-cut in an alcohol-friendly ink. I used Momento Tuxedo Black. On a separate sheet of paper I stamped dozens of leaves from the set as I knew I would be layering on as much as possible. Next, I got to coloring in all my images using a variety of alcohol-based markers (colors listed at end of post)!

Once I was finished coloring I moved onto my background. I stamped a piece of white A2 sized cardstock with my Woodgrain Background Stamp in a green ink. This time I used My Favorite Things Hyrbid Ink in Factory Green. I wanted to use Catherine Pooler’s Green Tea, but I desperately need to re-ink it! I die-cut that panel using the largest stitched rectangle from my Find the Beauty Die Set.

I also ran through the letterboard from my Letterboard Love Die Set, using some kraft and gray cardstock, and the “hello fall” which is actually included in the Pumpkin Spice Season Die Set. I assembled the letterboard using foam tape on the back and adhered everything on top using both dimensional adhesive and tape runner adhesive.

On this card I really wanted the coloring to be the main focal point which is so, so different for me! But, I think this card turned out adorable.

Watch me create this card in my process video below…

I hope you had a safe Halloween last night and are looking forward to the upcoming holiday season. I know I am!
