Welcome to a fun filled hop between the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and Trinity Stamps! We're hopping to share lots of inspiration using the new Frappy Camper's PERKing Spot stamp set that was born from a collaboration between our two teams and illustrated by Davina Cantrell. It was so much fun to work alongside the Trinity team and share ideas to come up with the concept so perfectly brought to life!
The party starts at the Trinity Stamps Blog! Hop and comment along the way for your chances to win a $20 gift code to the Trinity Stamps shop! You have until October 22nd to comment and the winner will be announced on the Trinity Blog on October 26th. If you get lost along the way, you can hop back on over to Trinity's Blog where you'll find the entire hop list and to find your way. You should have come here from the very talented Helen's Blog! And here's how I was inspired:
While shopping over at Trinity, I took a stroll through their considerable embellishments section and came across the beautiful Autumn Leaves embellishment mix and I knew I was going to create a shaker.
I paper pieced my camper using some leftovers from my National Coffee Day project that you can check out here if you'd like. I love all of the pieces parts in this set that make it so much fun to assemble a fun scene!
And these cute little characters! She decided, of course, that a Pumpkin Spice Latte was the ticket and he decided to go with a cupcake... and he may have another! I gave his shirt a bit of a plaid look... and I love his schwoopy hair! Very dashing!
I created my simple shaker by using a rectangle die and a circle die. I used washi tape to hold them in place and ran them through my Gemini all at once. I chose all of my papers from the same paper pad and when I cut the background circle for the shaker I chose the cute Love Life patterned paper and centered one of the large sentiments in the shaker window. I strategically glued a couple sequins inside so that it would always look like it was shaken. Don't you love the leaves in this mix??
Since I created my sentiment with my paper, I used part of one of the Frappy Camper sentiments for a sign on the Coffee Trailer and left it at that. Just scattered a few additional sequins around the outside... as if they escaped from the shaker.
I'm playing along over at Cupcake Inspirations Something Inside! You have just a few more hours to play along... my sequins are inside the shaker!
And then this came to me in the middle of the night and I couldn't let it go:
I mean... of course if I owned a coffee truck that was the created from a trailer, I would paint it to look like a pumpkin!
For this one I created a distress oxide background using some stencils and then placed that awesome Cloudy Day Frame over the top, popping it up with some thin width popup tape. Such a cool frame!
So did you notice my exhaust pipe/stem is made from a coffee cup?? This one is from the Seasonal Sweetheart set and was the perfect size! And I added a couple of the green leaves from the sequin mix.
I added the flowers and pumpkin also from the Seasonal Sweetheart set for more autumn feel. I decided not to add that cute couple so as not to cover up my pumpkin coffee truck trailer. They'll be there soon... after all... there is pumpkin spice on the menu!
I decided on a sentiment from the new Autumn Sentiments set. Cause.. well... Pumpkin Spice! I colored the strip with the same colors I used on the pumpkin trailer and added a few more sequin leaves.
And there you have it!
I'm playing along over at Double Trouble's Put Your Mask On Challenge (did you know that when you use a stencil... you're masking!) and pretty sure with this one I've met the Pumpkin twist!
Now to continue on your way you'll stop over at Robyn's place next for some awesome inspiration! Don't forget to leave love along the way for your chances to win a $20 gift code to the Trinity Stamp shop!
