I Heart Coffee | Spring and Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop | Studio Katia



Are you a coffee lover? Well, I am but I do have a love/hate relationship with it. If I could I would drink more of it, but sadly I have to limit my intake as I'm too sensitive to caffeine and become an insomniac. So one cup early in the day is all I can handle. Sometimes if I want more, I will drink a decaffeinated coffee, but it's just not the same LOL!

CARD DETAILS

For my card today, I knew I wanted to use the SHAKER HEART so I began by die cutting 5 of these hearts out of red cardstock. This SHAKER HEART die is so awesome as it cuts out 3 different hearts using this one die (I kept all the other die-cuts for future use).  I then glued and stacked all of the center hearts together and glued it on to one of the bottom layers from which I kept the negative pieces.  And, that was pretty much all I did for the heart.

I then had the idea to use the heart as the "love" symbol for my card so I could create an I πŸ’—(heart) Coffee card. The coffee cup I used comes from the SWEET LATTE and coordinating DIES sets, which I colored in Copic markers and added the I to it (just in case the coffee cup itself wasn't self-explanatory). To the SCRIPT COFFEE DIE, I stacked 3 layers and added Glossy Accents to the top. And, to embellish the card front I used a few ONYX CRYSTALS.

It's difficult to see from my photos the gorgeous texture on the card. I used the SQUARE BRICK Stencil to do some dry embossing to the card panel. Before I added the embossing, I die-cut the panel out first to add the dotted stitching to the border using the large frame from the DARLING RIBBON and FRAMES DIES.

I left the inside of the card blank for now, but I think it would be a great card to send as a thank you card for a coffee lover and maybe include a gift card to their favorite coffee shop. I hope this card has inspired you today or made you thirsty for that next cup of Java. 

Thanks a LATTE for stopping by (sorry can't help but make a punny πŸ˜‚)
Until next time... Happy HoppingπŸ‘‹

National Tea Day Blog Hop | Studio Katia

Happy National Tea Day for all of you that love tea!

Today Studio Katia has teamed up with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers to celebrate National Tea Day with a fun Blog Hop. Make sure you leave comments along the Hop to qualify for a $50 CAD Gift Certificate to the Studio Katia Store.

For my card today, I wanted to create an inviting table scene for someone to enjoy a cup of tea.

I began this card by stamping out a few of the images from the Sweet Latte set onto Bristol paper and then colored them in using Zig markers. I did a little bit of masking to add the teaspoon to the side of the teacup and fussy cut that out, and then used the coordinating dies to cut out the rest of the images.

Next, I did some dry embossing to add texture to my cardstock using the Mandala Stencil and running it through the Sizzix die cutting machine with an embossing mat. I then took the embossed piece and die cut the piece using the Dotted Pattern Set 3 dies to create a window for my scene.

To the background of what is the card base, I blended out a very subtle glow using Squeezed Lemon Distress Oxide ink and then began building the scene. The first piece I glued down was the patterned paper for a tablecloth and then added all the pieces to the table using foam tape to pop them up. I also stamped the hearts and steam to the background, colored those in and added some glossy accents. Lastly, I added the embossed frame using foam tape to create a window.

For the sentiment, I stamped out the many sweet thanks onto the dotted rectangle from the Dotted Patterns Set 2 and trimmed the edges to slide behind the tea kettle.
