Holiday Themed Coffee Tags


Hello Coffee Lovers! It's my day to take over the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog and I have four fun holiday themed coffee tags to share with you!

I really enjoyed making these tags because I used lots of fun elements and die cuts on each one and I just love the look of a layered tag. It brought me back to my shabby chic style of card making.

I started with a "to go" style coffee cup die cut from holiday themed patterned paper. I added a koozie and a lid to each cup in coordinating colored card stock. Next it was time to add lots of fun elements to decorate the cups. Each koozie got a little coffee themed sentiment punched out with a small scalloped circle. I just love the addition of the sparkly red heart and dainty silver spoon.

Decorating the top of each cup was my chance to continue layering fun elements for a random look. I used an old Martha Stewart snowflake punch from my stash to cut out some sparkly snowflakes. I punched a hole in the middle of them and threaded them on to some twine. Next I punched out a small tag from a Karen Burniston die set I have and stamped To and From on each tag with an older Lawn Fawn stamp set. The last element I threaded on to the twine was a cute little jingle bell that gave so much character to each tag. The last thing I added to each tag was a little sprig of greenery to add a festive element.

I really enjoyed making these tags because I had no actual plan in mind and I just kept layering lots of elements til I was happy with the design.

I think I'll decorate a gift card sized envelope with these tags and give out some Starbucks or Dunkin cards in them. I know I'd love to receive a small gift like this.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I've inspired you to make some original tags of your own. Dig through your stash and see what you can add to your tags!

Have a great day, I already am!

What's Poppin'?

Hello crafty friends! I am up on the  LDRS Creative blog today and I have a fun and colorful card to share with you featuring stamps and dies from the new Pastry Pals - Exclusive Craft Kit!
Are there any Pop Tart fans out there? I know I loved them growing up and so did my kids!
This card features 2 happy Pop Tarts and a fun polka dot background, details below!

Below is a description of the new Pastry Pals - Exclusive Craft Kit that I used to create this card!

This Pastry Pals Exclusive Craft Kit is available for a limited time only.  You'll have the most fun with the adorable Pastry Pals stamps and coordinating dies. 

Color these 'Pastry' friends in your favorite color combos and create the most adorable scenes.

Have fun creating easy and amazing backgrounds with the Circles Layering Stencils.....use 1 - 2 or 3 stencils, in any combination for a variety of effects on your projects. 

Add the WOW factor with fun edges using the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Dies.  Use them individually or layered in any combination. 

The possibilities are endless with this timeless kit!  

Craft Kit includes:

  • Pastry Pals 4" X 6" Stamp Set
  • Pastry Pals Coordinating Die Set
  • Circles Layering Stencils - 3 stencils
  • Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set - 4 dies

I had so much fun creating this card and here's the recipe:

I started out by die cutting a piece of white card stock using the largest die from the Diagonal Stitched Layered Frames Die Set I really love the detailed edge these dies create!

Next I took the Layering Circle Stencils from the Pastry Pals - Exclusive Craft Kit and stenciled some circles in Soft Kisses and Bali Blue ink using the incredibly soft LDRS Blender Brushes.

For the top layer of the card I used the second largest die from the 
Diagonal Stitched Layered Frames Die Set and I cut out a piece of vellum to stamp my Pop Tarts on. The vellum is see through so it allows you to see the pretty background without covering it up.

The last step was to stamp my Pop Tarts and sentiment and color them in to match the circles in the background. I used foam tape to pop up the vellum panel being careful to hide the tape behind the die cuts.

Here is a closeup of those adorable little pastries:

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you'll check out the new 
Pastry Pals - Exclusive Craft Kit! I guarantee you'll have hours of fun creating fun and colorful cards with this versatile kit!

Have a great day, I already am!

Witches Brew


Welcome back to my blog and another post for the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog!

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween doing whatever it is you do on Halloween! I wanted to share one more belated coffee themed Halloween card before we move on to the rest of the holidays!
This is a shaker card that I made using some fun dies from Lawn Fawn and Spellbinders!

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Mug Frame for my mug and filled it with a fun shaker mix from Trinity stamps. The fabulous witches legs are from the Let's Be Frank dies from Spellbinders. I really love how they have spaces to fill in the socks and shoes with different pops of color!

The purple stars in the background are from an older Echo Park stencil and I printed out the sentiment using a word processing program where I could mix and match different fun fonts.

This was a fun card to make and the last of the Halloween cards until next year.

Thanks for joining me today, have a great day!
