Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop | FSJ | Just For You



Welcome to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop!  I'm excited for three reasons.  First, the Coffee Loving Cardmakers are hosting an FSJ sponsored blog hop; second, because I LOVE coffee; and third, there is a chance to win!


For my project, I pulled some of the new products from the FSJs new Inspiration Book & Catalog for 2018-2019.  The new Grid Paper background stamp inspired this clean, graphic, card.


This card was also a fun excuse to get to play with the new Coffee First Die Set that was introduced in the Spring into Summer mini catalog.  Very excited this die set will be staying for the year!  This is a set of 8 dies and you can create two versions of a to-go coffee cup.  And don't forget tea!!  There's even a die for a tea bag!  I went with an iced to-go coffee, die cutting my cup and lid from vellum.  For the 'coffee,' I die cut another cup, and then just trimmed the top at an angle to make it look more like coffee.

 

I used our new Circle Around die set with our new Pop of Color tape with cardstock to die cut a small circle to add to my coffee cup sleeve.  The new Tin Pail cardstock was perfect here as a card panel to add just a bit more color and texture using our Journey Rectangle Long die set to pierce just one side.  To finish the card, I added some small splatters with Dark Roast Silk, Sea Stones, and for the sentiment, I used a new stamp from our My Sentiments category called Remarkable You
