Coffee Loving Cardmakers - Stamplorations Collaboration Hop


We are so excited because today is the day the Coffee Loving Cardmakers team up with Stamplorations to feature some of the awesome Stamplorations products including this fantastic Zen Coffee 2 Cover Plate! (Be sure to stick around through the end of my post to find out about a special you can take advantage of now!)


How about even more awesome?  Comment on each stop along the way for a chance to win a $25 Stamplorations gift certificate!  You should have come here from Laurel's place!

And here's what I have for you:


For this one, I cut the cover plate once out of purple cardstock.  Then I placed a piece of white glitter paper towards the top of the cup so that it covered the steam parts of the piece.  Then I chose my other papers and just put a piece of paper that covered the part I wanted to fill in.  So I cut a strip of the lavender design paper and placed it only where the cup is and cut my pieces for that and the same for the coffee in the cup.  I used two of my purple cardstock pieces for the plate.  Once all of my pieces were cut out, I took a floral piece of design paper and cut it the same size as the cover plate (pretty much 4 1/4 x 5 1/2) and adhered my frame to that.  Then I proceeded to place my pieces like a puzzle where they belonged.  I left a good part of my frame empty so that the floral showed through.  I love the way it looks!   I do suggest that as you cut your pieces you place each on a separate piece of paper to carry to your workspace so you don't lose any.  But if you do, it's easy enough to take a smaller piece and cut a new one!  I can tell you it's easy because of course I lost one (or more!)...lol!


I cut some fishtail banners from coordinating design paper, added a few flowers and sequins and used that pretty sentiment and bird from the Hello Coffee stamp set.

I'm linking this one up to the Cutplorations Challenge that's going on for the Summer!  Also, to this week's Twisted Thursday over at the Outlawz which is Anything Goes!


Then for my second, I did the same except for this one I used a white background:


I die cut the cover plate layer out of white cardstock and then smushed some Versamark all over it for full coverage...


Then I heat embossed the frame using some Verdigris embossing powder... LOVE the way it came out!  And aren't these sentiments from the Hello Coffee set SO pretty??



And then I did this:


I hardly ever leave so much white!  But with an awesome background like this there is so much interest it doesn't bother me at all!  I kept all of my pieces and decided to fill some of them in to make the coffee and steam stand out a bit more.


For the sentiment I used this awesome sentiment stamp, Bliss from the Say It Big Series... LOVE!!   I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with some more yummy Verdigris embossing powder and then fussy cut it out.  I placed a strip of vellum across the front of the card and then popped my cut out sentiment on top of it.  A few pretty flowers and sequins from my stash along with a leaf die cut that was sitting on my desk leftover from a prior project finished it off.

I'm linking this one up to the Summer CAS Challenge!



And one more for you... had to use the Hello Coffee set I just recently got from the shop...


I love the Luggage Tag Nesting Dies from Stamplorations!  Love the shape of them and I love to cut all three sizes and layer them together for one tag.  I used some Graphic 45 design papers that I've had for a while.  I colored and cut the floral, cup and bird from the Hello Coffee stamp set and then stamped the sentiment from the same set directly onto the tag.



  A few sequins from my stash and some baker's twine (I did use a regular old hole punch to put a larger hole in the smallest tag so I could fit all of that yummy twine into it)... done!

I'm linking this one up to the Tagplorations Challenge for the Summer!


AND to make it even better!  Here's a special treat for you!  Thanks so much to Shery from Stamplorations!



That's it for me!  And Thanks a Latte for stopping by my place!  From here you're scheduled to hop on over to Robyn's place!  If you get lost along the way you can always head back to the Coffee Loving Papercrafters blog or the Stamplorations blog where you'll find the entire hop list!  And don't forget to leave some love at each stop for your chance to win!  And while you're at it, why not create something using some of Stamplorations awesome products and link it up to one or more of these challenges!

Good luck!

Fabulous projects, Lisa. Brilliant idea to combine layering and paper piecing. Always love you special touches like the glitter insets, the little banners, and tiny embellishments. Adore the embossed card! Kerry did that, too, and it's just gorgeous. Would love to learn if/how this is possible with a Big Shot.

Thanks for the inspiration!
