Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Spring Summer 2020

Really excited to take part in my first EVER blog hop!! The Coffee Lovers Hop. I had great fun making it.
The theme is a caffeinated element. So both my favourite things, I could not have had a more perfect theme. Coffee and card making a perfect Saturday afternoon in Lockdown.

Full details regarding the Coffee Lovers Blog hop are available here

The full video tutorial is available here Mrs H's Crafty Corner

 What I Used

A6 Card Base - cream 
Plain White Card 200gsm
Dovecraft Clear Embossing Ink pad
Anti Static Pad
Papermania Clear Embossing powder
Heat Tool
Coffee Break Stamp and die set (Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine Issue 177)
Distress Ink - Bundled Sage
Distress Ink - Dusty Concord
Spectrum Noir Harmony Ink Pad - Smoked Pearl
Stamp Press
Double Sided Tape
Foam Squares
Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Alcohol Marker - dusty purple
Glossy Accents 


Cut a piece of white card to 10.5 cm (4 1/8 Inch) by 14cm ( 51/2 Inch)

Dust the card with the anti static bag

Using the take away coffee cup.stamp from the coffee break stamps and die set, stamp the image in 3 places on the card using embossing ink.

Blend the image with the Bundled Sage Distress Ink

Then blend over the top with the dusty Concord distress ink and secure to the A6 card base in landscape.

I took a fresh piece of card and stamped the cup and saucer in Spectrum Noir Smoked Pearl Ink

 this was coloured using the Spectrum Noir Tri-blend alcohol pen in dusty purple. The image was then fussy cut out

A small piece of white card was then blended with Bundled Sage distress ink on one half and Smoked Pearl Spectrum Noir Harmony ink on the other side 

The tag and steam dies were cut out using the Sizzix Big Shot and glued to the cup and saucer. See picture below for placement

Using foam pads this is then fastened to the card

To finish,  glossy accents are used on the fluid inside the cup to give the impression of fluid.
