For beginner stampers…

Do have a beginner cardmaker on your present list this year? Then this is the perfect gift idea to help get them started. Include a few adhesive options and few stamp sets that have lots of versatility. I chose Abstract Florals and Script Greetings because they are two of my bestsellers and have so many possibilities! Ink pads are essential as well and the ones from Catherine Pooler are perfect for beginner stampers as they are juicy and only need a light tap to get a solid image. And if you’re feeling extra generous, pop in a Mini MISTI to help alleviate those dreaded stamping mistakes!

For mixed media crafters…

One of the hottest trends in papercrafting right now is ink blending! Especially with the coveted Ranger Distress Oxides. Why not gift your crafting bestie a few new colors to add their collection? Choose a few of your favorites or colors that are perfect for creating backgrounds for the upcoming season! I chose Tattered Rose and Candied Apple for a fun, holiday palette and Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon for wintery backgrounds. Add in a few extra blending tools and foams and a fun stencil and you have a gift perfect for your inky friends!

For your friend who loves to be organized…

With the new year just around the corner (gulp), fresh planners and new pens will be lining the store shelves. Why not give your friend all the tools she needs to make her own? Start with a We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board and choose a few stamp sets that will help her build her spreads. I recommend Banner Alphabet, Banner Alphabet Add-On and Get Stuff Done! Add in a new pen or some bright colored ink pads and your friend is ready to take 2019 by storm!

Life Happens Coffee Helps DIY Gift Card Holder Card by Carly Tee

Hi! It’s Carly Tee and I’m so excited to be here on the Right at Home blog! Coffee is always a good idea, right? I think so but I will tell you a secret, even though I’m a Seattle girl I don’t like coffee. Blasphemous I know but I still love a trip to the coffee shop! I just drink tea or coconut milk hot chocolate – yum! And even though I don’t drink it myself, I can absolutely appreciate how a cupof coffee can turn the day around!

The Cup Of Joy set is perfect for brightening someone’s day! And I have a quick and easy way to create a gift card holder inside a card.

Life Happens Coffee Helps DIY Gift Card Holder Card by Carly Tee // rightathomeshop.com/blog

To start, just create your A2 card as desired. I stamped a coffee cup, then masked it before using dye inks in a CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow & black) color palette and Abstract Florals to create a colorful & mod background around my coffee cup. I love the way the CMYK dye inks blend to create other colors.

To create the gift card holder insert, cut a piece of cardstock to 4-1/2 x 8. Score at ½, 4 and 7-1/2.

Fold on the 4 inch score line and use a circle punch or die to cut a circle notch on the fold line. I used a 1-1/2 circle punch.

Use scissors to cut a little triangle notch from each side of the circle to create an opening that a gift card can easily slide into and out of.

Decorate as desired, then fold ½ and 7-1/2 score lines, insert gift card and adhere the flaps to the inside of the card.

Hello Pumpkin Spice Coffee Card // Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Fall 2017

Hey there, coffee lovers! 

Who's excited for today's blog hop? I know I am! Participating in these hops are always a highlight of my season so I thank Amy for always inviting me. I feel like this blog hop was made for the fall season so I'm even more excited to share my project with you today. Let's get brewing! 

Hello Pumpkin Spice Card // Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Fall 2017 - rightathomeshop.com/blog

So that it is finally fall it is officially pumpkin spice season! To celebrate, I knew I wanted to use the "Hello pumpkin spice" sentiment from my How Have You Bean? stamp set on my card. I also pulled out my Cup of Joy stamp set (obvs) and my Grateful Heart set as I wanted to use a few of the little elements. 

I started my card by die-cutting the to-go cup, band, pumpkin, leaf, sunflower, and small stitched rectangle from some Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. I'm using this specific cardstock as I will be using ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and Distress Oxide inks. You'll get the best blending results by using this paper! 

Hello Pumpkin Spice Card // Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Fall 2017 - rightathomeshop.com/blog

I colored in all my pieces with the pens (colors listed below!) and added some details with a white gel pen. On my stitched rectangle, I stamped my sentiment in a crisp, black ink, and then sponged some Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink towards the top. I adhered my pieces on top of the sponging with some foam tape and stamped my card base with the steam image from the same Cup of Joy set. I love how it looks like woodgrain! Oh, and you can't forget the Nuvo Drops! I used English Mustard. 

  • To-Go Cup: 090 Gray, 091 Light Gray
  • Band: 043 Olive Green, 046 Mid Green
  • Pumpkin: 023 Scarlet Red, 043 Olive Green, 060 Brown, 070 Orange
  • Leaf: 020 Red, 022 Carmine Red
  • Sunflower: 052 Bright Yellow, 062 Dark Brown

If you're more of a video watcher like me, you can watch my full process in the video below.

I hope you are fueled and ready to continue on the hop! I'm currently on my way to get myself a brew as well before clicking along. 

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.

Have a caffeine-tastic day! 

Nicole
