My card today features the gorgeous Beautiful Day digital stamp set! These poppies are just stunning!! I started with one of the floral clusters and making it really big!! I also added a Happy Birthday to the flower. Then I printed it out on some watercolor card stock.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Poppy Watercoloring

Then I used some Papertrey Ink reinkers as watercolors, coloring the poppy. After my color was dry I used some gold ink spray to add some splatters to the image.

Newton's Nook Designs - Birthday Brew

Hello!!

This is my last card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Blog Hop!! It has been a fun week sharing and seeing a ton of inspiration!! If you still have projects to link up, better get to it!!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Newton's Nook Designs - Coffee

This card features Sponsor Newton's Nook Designs - Newton Loves Coffee stamp set. I decided to do some paper piecing, it has been awhile and realized how much I miss doing it! I don't mind doing all the fussy cutting!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Newton's Nook Designs - Coffee

I used a Doodle Bug designs pattern paper pad and stamped the images on different colorful sheets. Fussy cut them all out and of course use a black pen to color the images edges.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Newton's Nook Designs - Coffee

I stamped the kitty looking at a mug from the edge on a strip of white card stock. I colored him and the other kitty with my Copic markers. Then I fussy cut the top part of the kitty looking over the edge.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Newton's Nook Designs - Coffee

Then I adhered all my paper piecing to my white stamped cups and then arranged them on the 'table' I created with the kitty looking over the edge.

From the pattern paper pad I added a blue and grey pattern to a white card base and then added the 'table' with all the cups and kitties!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Coffee

I used one of the coffee images and added it to a Word document and made it big!! Then I added one of the sentiments to the middle of the coffee cup. Printed it out and colored it with copics.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Coffee

Then I fussy cut the image out and then I decided to use some washi tape to make my my background. I have lots of washi tape that I don't use that often!! LOL!!! I picked out a couple purple and gold tapes of different widths and just added them to a white panel.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Coffee

The washi tape is so easy, I used my lined glass mat to make the tape straight and hold my panel in place. Then I gently pulled up the panel and wrapped the washi tape ends around the edge to the back of the panel. And wa-la a super easy background!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Coffee

I added my colored image to the panel with foam tape and then adhered the panel to a white card base. Since some of the washi tape was glittery I decided any enamel dots or sequins would be overkill!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll me back later today with my last card!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Coffee

For some reason I had issues trying do a background for this card, maybe because of the colors I colored it. It was a few days later that I came across a scrap of gold glitter card stock, and after trying it with a blue card base I new that it was just right for the image.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Coffee

I trimmed the glitter card stock a little and then adhered it to the blue card base. Then I added the colored image with foam tape.

Hello!!

Creating and post all these coffee cards are making me miss my Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappucino!! While Starbucks is open, I just don't want to risk exposing my self anymore then necessary! But, there is one in the future as cases of COVID continue to go down in my state!

Anyway! Today my card features The Rabbit Hole Designs Caffeinated Owl! He looks how I feel when I wake up in the morning!! Haha!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Rabbit Hole Designs - Caffeinated Owl

This card is fairly simple, it came together nicely and simply!! Some times its nice to something on the easy side!! First, I stamped the owl and then used my Copic markers to color him up! Then I fussy cut her out!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Rabbit Hole Designs - Caffeinated Owl

Sugar Pea Designs - Ahoy There Coffee

Hello!!

My next coffee card today for the Spring/Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop features Sugar Pea Designs Coffee To Go. Its retired from their website, but Sponsor Butterfly Reflections still has it available!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Echo Park Paper Co.

Occasionally I try to make a coffee card that is more masculine, in this case for a younger little guy! While he probably doesn't drink coffee, he can play along and pretend and not get left out getting a coffee just like mom or dad!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Echo Park Paper Co.

I used Echo Park Paper Co Pirates Life paper collection. First I cut a pattern paper panel with a stitched rectangle die.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Echo Park Paper Co.

With the Coffee To Go I used a couple different patterns to cut out the cup. Then I added a skull and cross bones sticker to the cup. From the collection I also pulled out an octopus sticker and the alpha stickers to spell Coffee.  The Ahoy There is also a sticker and I cut off the Pirate word at the bottom of the sticker, so instead of Ahoy There Pirate, the sentiment is Ahoy There Coffee!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Echo Park Paper Co.

I added a white and red sticker across the panel and then adhered the stickers to spell Coffee. Then I added the octopus, cup and Ahoy There above the Coffee.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Watercolor Smooching

This is my first card made with this set, later in the week I'll be sharing two more!! First I added one of the coffee images to a Word document. I resized it, making it a little one big side, then I added an sentiment.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Watercolor Smooching

After printing the image I used my Copic markers to color the image. When I printed the image I had an idea of what I was going to do with it, but as I started to create the card, I went in a totally different direction!! Instead of leaving most of the white around the image, I fussy cut out all out instead.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Watercolor Smooching

Then I made the background by doing some watercolor smooching with Altenew watercolors. I used a heat gun in between the orange and light purple, both colors to match my coffee cup. Then I cut the panel out with a stitched rectangle and adhered it to a black card base.

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Graciellie Designs - Watercolor Smooching

Next, I added the image with foam tape and then added a few rhinestones for some sparkle! Since the image fell over the edge, I did trim a little off.
