    Coffee Lovers Blog Hop (10)

    Hello! Thanks for visiting us today and joining in on the blog hop fun! Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win! Today we did a fun shaker card that has almost all of the pieces pre-made so this will be the easiest shaker card you've ever made!

    IMG_3849

    These kits have note cards, the plastic for the shaker and the sequins along with a stamp set and die cuts to create a variety of cards. How appropriate to make a coffee shaker card for this hop! But you'll have to check out all of the different sets that they have. There's an ugly sweater set that is pretty cute!

    Here is the finished card! But here are the steps to create this coffee card.

    IMG_3850

    Since I used a printed paper for the backdrop, you'll want to trace the plastic shaker piece onto the printed paper and hand cut it out. Glue that to the inside of the card and place it where the cut out on the front will match when it's closed. Fill in the plastic shaker piece and it already has adhesive tape around the edges so all you have to do is remove paper and place down onto the card.

    This is a better picture showing the front of the card that is already pre-cut. You will glue the plastic shaker piece to the back of the card.

    Add a little ribbon to the handle and then we added dots for the background of the card. The NUVO Vintage Drops are NEW so we wanted to try them out. There's about 8 new colors and they dry MATTE instead of glossy. They take a little longer to dry but the colors are gorgeous.

  • Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

    We are on the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today! We hope you enjoy our coffee card!

    Life Happens, Coffee Helps!

    We're from Seattle so you know we like coffee at Impress. We have so much fun with our coffee cup stamp. By changing the band on the cup, it's easy to create a fun new look each time you use it. Here we used a new modern washi tape.

    IMG-2056

    Start by laying a few strips of the tape down on the card.

    Stamp your cup over the tape and then cut out the band and attach to your card.  The wonderful border on the bottom of  this card is done with Flora and Fauna's texture set.

    Amber designed this card for one of our stampers' drop in events and I wanted to share it with you. I think it's so pretty!  The outline and solid monstera leaves were stamped with Fresh ink aloe and mint. An added fun touch was Savvy's palm in vase die cut from glitter paper.

    FIND THE SWEET IN THE SOUR

    Thanks for stopping by today. We think it's so fun to be a part of the Mega Sponsor Blog Hop. Here's a project we wanted to share. It uses three of our new rubber stamps including one of our favorites the lemons. We added the background with our confetti stamp. It's a really versatile stamp and we've already used it on so many different cards. Here we stamped it with different colors to make the background. We used Fresh ink celery and limeade. The lemons were water colored, cut  out and then attached to the card with a mini wobbler.  Enjoy!

  • French Rose Nuvo Embellishment Mousse

    mousse-_rose

    We're in love with this new color of Nuvo Embellishment Mousee. It's called French Rose and it's easy to use. We created the background by spreading the mouse across the paper using a jumbo dauber. After it was dry, we stamped one of our favorite floral stamps called sketched blooms and embossed it with Hero Arts copper embossing powder. The thank you is a new stamp from Savvy that we warn you. you're going to want! We couldn't stop using it the day it arrived. We stamped it with new neptune Versafine Clair ink.  It's the blackest black around.
