Day 5 Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall Blog Hop

The Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall blog hop is in full swing and I'm back with another project.  I've been a little under the weather the last few days and am just now able to get this posted.  

I made a spooky fun milk carton treat box that holds a couple K-cups!  Not a card, but I am using cardmaking products, featuring Pink & Main stamps - "Latte Love" and "Sweet Halloween", plus the matching dies..  My cardstock is from the newest Paper House Productions Halloween collection, featuring the double-sided Trouble Is Brewing papers and the Acetate Cobweb paper. 





I used the Cricut cartridge Tags, Bags Boxes & More 2 in my Design Space, enlarged on the largest setting for 12x12 inch paper, just under 11.5" x 7.5".  You are welcome to copy/paste this link in your design space, however there may be a charge for cutting the file.



I also used one of my Spellbinder dies to cut out a small square for my acetate cobweb peep hole.  My cute stamps were colored with Marvy Le Plume II brush markers and I masked the vampire bat face, onto my coffee cup.  Fun!  Thanks for stopping in!  Hop details are below if you'd like to join in on all the fun.  Affiliate shopping links provided as well.

Ghouls Just Want To Have Fun

With Halloween right around the corner, I thought I would play with some new bewitching stamps that have recently been added to the So Suzy Stamps store.  I'm pairing the new Halloween stamps, "Witch with Crystal Ball" and "Ghouls Just Wanna", with the bowl/globe that Olesya designed for our holiday release.  I thought it would make the perfect cauldron for my creepy witch.  




Here's a brief tutorial on how I put this together and a list of ingredients that you will need:

-watercolor paper
-green glitter
-white embossing powder
-black embossing powder
-green misting ink
-black dye ink
-paper towel
-heat tool
-coloring markers 
-Versamark watermark clear ink
-small paint brush
-black cardstock
-designer paper
-embellishments
-hot glue gun
-adhesive tape, runner



(I recently tried a technique where I heat my embossing powder until it just begins to bubble, then sprinkles on glitter, press it in lightly with my finger and tap off excess, then finish heating.  I'm using that same technique again for my sentiment.)


1.  Heat emboss the globe with black embossing powder and versamark, onto watercolor paper.
2.  Use the technique described above, to heat emboss the sentiment.




3.  Press a paper towel onto a black dye ink pad and swipe the ink in a circle around the outside of sentiment and inside edge of bowl.  Repeat until desired color achieved.

4. Spray small amount of green ink onto craft mat and paint circles with a damp paintbrush.  Dry.



*Optional - I wanted my witch to have a collar draping over the edge of my bowl and also to fill in the gaps where she was fussy cut.  Trim a small piece of cardstock in the shape of a bowtie.  Adhere bottom edge to backside of bowl and fold upper edges down in front of bowl.

5.  Fussy cut your stamped witch and color her with markers of your choosing.  I have watercolored with Marvy Le Plume II brush markers.





6.  Run a bit of adhesive along the bottom of your witch (front) and adhere to the back of the "collar".

7.  Use strong adhesive tape to pop out your cauldron so that the sides are tightly adhered with the center pushed inwards to form a bubble-like shape.




8.  Add various embellishments and ribbons.  My designer papers are from the Graphic 45 Rare oddities collection and French Country collection..  This card is approximately 5"x 6".  The embellishments are from May Arts Ribbon and DoubleClick Skittles embellishment line.





If you're a fan of the Wizard of Oz, then you should know that I colored this witch in homage to the Wicked Witch of the West!  Or was it East?  No matter.  She was green and wicked!  I hope you love this fun Halloween card.  Be sure and check out all the Fall and Halloween stamps!  There's a huge selection and I know you will have fun looking around.  Thanks for popping in today!

Day 1 Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall Blog Hop

I am so, so happy that the Fall Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop is finally here!  Two of my very favorite things paired together; coffee and Fall!  Today, I'm featuring two newbies.... first, our newest super sponsor, Echo Park Paper!!  As if that isn't fabulous enough, I'm also featuring their brand new stamp set, "But First Coffee".    I've got to tell you, I'm so very excited that Echo Park Paper joined in on the fun.  I have so many of their paper collections, including this newest set which is from their sister site, Carta Bella Paper's "Hello Fall" paper collection.  Two dynamic duos!





Before I go further, I hope you'll join the hop.  It's a week long event and we have over 80 super sponsors, which means, " a whole lotta prizes"!   More details at the end of this post.


Echo Park Paper is giving one lucky linker-upper the new stamp set, "But First Coffee".  Wahoo!   Check it out.  Isn't it awesome?  Of course, if you can't wait, I've provided affiliate links for you today so you can go ahead and shop to your hearts content.  You can find all the products that I used today, at Scrapbook.com.  Click away!  You can thank me later! 


from: Scrapbook.com


As you can see, I colored up my coffee cup and did a little paper piecing as well.
My sentiment was heat embossed on white cardstock and popped up on foam squares.  I'll have a full list of product links at the end of this post.




I adore those cardstock stickers included in the 12x12 inch kit collection.  The truck was fussy cut from one of the 3x4 inch cardstock images.  Adulting is hard, right?  We need our coffee and we need it now!




Thank you so much, Echo Park Paper, for your generosity! (Click that FB link to tell them thanks!)

Be sure and link up your newly created (must be new, older projects will be removed) coffee, cocoa or tea themed cards or papercraft projects.  You'll find the Inlinkz link at the end of the blog post listed below.  All the details are on the CLC blog post.
