Coffee Lovers Spring Summer Blog Hop
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!!
Larissa here today to share a couple of Cards as part of the Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! I LOVE the possibilities when it comes to ways you can combine the AMAZING Therm O Web Products along with your Coffee Themed Products!! Let’s get started!!
For my first Card I thought I’d share a Simple Design!! Showcasing the AWESOME Deco Foil Flock Sheets in Tuscan Gold!! SWOON!!
I started by Spraying the Back of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps By the Beans Stencil with some Pixie Spray!! Then I adhered it over the White Cardstock and applied a thin layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the Stencil using the Stencil Pal!! I removed the Stencil and washed the Stencil and Stencil Pal and set the Card Panel aside to Dry completely!!
Once the Card Panel is Dry I placed a piece of the Tuscan Gold Deco Foil Flock Sheets onto the Gel Fuzzy (Colored side) Down onto the Dried Gel!! Then I ran it through my Die Cutting Machine to burnish the Flock into the Gel!!
SQUEAL!! The FUNNEST Part is revealing the Flocked Stenciled Image once you remove the backing Paper!!
I like to add some Inking to the Flocked Stenciled Design to add some Dimension!! This step isn’t necessary, but I personally LOVE the way it really makes both the Flocking and the Design POP!! I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink and Applied it with an Ink Dauber right over the Stencil so I didn’t get any Ink onto the white background of the Panel!!
EEEKKKK!! Once you remove the Stencil you can REALLY see how the Flocked Stencil Design REALLY Pops with the addition of the Ink!! Then I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters to add even more Texture!!
Next I knew I wanted to create a Layered Sentiment and I wanted to add a Foiled Circle Frame so I Foiled some Deco Foil Toner Sheets with some Gina K Designs Fancy Foils in Radiant Red!! Ran it through my Laminating Machine and then Die Cut the Circle!!
I Die Cut a White Cardstock Circle and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Coffee`isms Stamp Set using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I adhered the Radiant Red Circle behind using some Ultra Bond Adhesive and then I adhered a Black Cardstock Circle behind the Foiled Circle again using Ultra Bond Adhesive!! I adhered the Layered Sentiment Circles onto my Card Panel using some Gina K Designs Foam Tape!! Then I added some Studio Katia Red Jewels and my Card was done!! I LOVE the way the Flocked Stenciled Design looks and I hope you give this technique a try!!

For my Second Card I wanted to create a FUN Scene!! I KNOW that Gnomes have been POPULAR and I thought it would be CUTE to create a Gnome Home Coffee Cup!! SWOON!! Isn’t it just the CUTEST!!?? I’ve used both Deco Foil Flock Sheets and some Deco Foil again to create different elements for my Card!! Again, SO MANY Possibilities!!
I wanted to use the Pink Carnation Deco Foil Flock Sheets for the Main Part of the Gnome Home!! So I adhered it to a Piece of Pink Cardstock using some of the Easy-Cut Adhesive Sheets!! Then I placed the Deco Foil Flock Sheet Fuzzy Side Down onto the Adhesive Sheet and ran it through my Die Cutting Machine to Burnish the Flocking in the Adhesive on the Cardstock!! Then I peeled off the Backing Sheet and Die Cut the MFT Gnome Place Like Home Die!! I Inked the edges with some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink!!
I wanted to add some Sparkle and Shine to the Top of the Gnome Home so I mixed together some of the Gina K Designs Glitter Glitz in Green Grass, the Deco Foil Metallix Gel in White Pearl and then I added a few drops of Distress Oxide Reinker in Lucky Clover!! I mixed it all together and then used the Stencil Pal to apply a thin layer of it to some White Cardstock!! I set it aside to dry and then I Die Cut the Top of the Gnome Home!!
I wanted the Window and Door Frames and Door Casing to be Die Cut from some Deco Foil so I cut a Small Piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets and then a piece of the Turquoise Deco Foil and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! I removed the Film and Die Cut the Window and Door Frames and the Door Casing from the Turquoise Deco Foil!!
I discovered while trying to come up with a Design, that the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Coffee Cup Die is the PERFECT Size and Scale to combine with the MFT Gnome Place Like Home Die Set!! I adhered everything together using Ultra Bond Adhesive and Zots Bling Adhesive Dots!! I added some Copic Marker Shading onto parts of the House to add some Texture!! White Gel Pen details were added for some Highlights!! Isn’t it just the CUTEST!!?? I’d TOTALLY Buy a Gnome Home Coffee Cup like this to help me SMILE with every Sip!!
To finish off the Design I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment onto the inside of my Card!! Using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! The Sentiment is from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Stay Strong Stamp Set!! PERFECT for sending a SMILE to a Coffee Friend who maybe you’ve MISSED sharing a Drink and Conversation with during these times!! I LOVE how it turned out and I hope I’ve given you some INSPIRATION!!
