Club Scrap Delft Blog Hop and Coffeelovers day 6

Welcome to the monhly Club Scrap blog hop
in combination with the Coffeelovers Spring blog hop.
This month the Club Scrap kit is called Delft, so it has
the Dutch tiles as the theme of papers and stamps.

Hope you have arrived here from
and seen her great project for your inspiration.
If you want to see all the participants visit the

My project is a holder for my Nespresso coffee cups.
I made it out of the pizzabox the papers and stamps arrived in.

I cut out of the bottom a piece of 12 x 12 inch.
Next 4 pieces of 12 x 1 inch and
4 pieces of 12 x 0,5 inch.
The smallest strip is glued in the center of the 
1 inch strip.
Then I used the cups to make sure the strips
will be on the right place. Best to have two cups
(one for the left and one for the right side) to make
a staight line.
When everything is glued the complete project
is painted with gesso. I did this twice.
Now the stamps are inkted with blue sapphire ink
and with the crackle stamp I decorated the strips,
The tile I stamped at the bottom part and colored with the
same ink and a waterbrush and also used the crackle stamp.

Then I used the frame stamp to make the word coffee.
I used an old alphabeth set from Chocolat Shoppe to
stamp the letters inside the frame. They are cut out with
an oval die and a matching scallop die for the yellow paper.

The cups are cut with the cup die from Tim Holtz and after
inking all around I fastened the cups with yellow brads to
the background. You see 7 cups: one for each day of the week.
On top of my cupholder you find the same frame with my name.
I wrote this with the blue diamond pen that came with the kit.

Now i just needed to make some coffee cards too:
I made two totally Dutch themed cards for the hop.
As i live in The Netherlands I had to add the porcelain clogs
and the little windmill snowglobe for decoration.

For card #1 I used some ot Tim Hotlz dies
(the posteroid and the coffee cup). 
From a company called Amy Design I got
the Dutch word embossing folder that I colored
in the Dutch flag and they also carry the windmill
cutting die. The paper of this kit saus it all
and the stamp fits in perfectly.
I had one cup left from the capsule holder,
so it was perfect for this card. I just stamps the
clogs and colored it with markers.
Cutting one of the borders from the cut aparts
and beautiful paper, not much else was needed
for this card. Hope you all enjoy your coffee
while hoping along with us.

Now for more ideas you can hop on to 
and see what see has come up with.

Thank you for looking
and have a latte creative day!

Coffeelovers Spring blog hop: day 5

Good morning, while sipping my coffee I write my blogpost for you.
Today i played with 2 sweet digital stamps from 
They offer some freebies for the hop and I used them here.
I have printed tem on white cardstock (250 gr) and took
out my pencils.

After I colored the image, I looked for
some matching design paper. This paper
is from a 6x6 design serie from Stampin'Up!
(It came with the tea sstampset they had last year).
Then my eye caught my washi tape and 
together it was a perfect combination.
Last but not least I added a few lavender
sticky gemstones.

I hate wasting nice design paper,
so I used the left over pieces on a second card.

And not only on the outside, but also on the inside.
The coffee cup here is from Club Scrap.

Of course my cards are also for day 28 of the 
color challenge on The Daily Marker.

Thank you for looking and
have a latte creative day

Coffeelovers Spring blog hop: day 4

Day 4 of the Coffeelovers blog hop
and i still have so many ideas for my cards.

For this card I found the background on the internet.
I wanted to share it with you, but could not find it again.
I love looking for coffee images all over.

So I got my pencils out and my waterbrush
and started coloring. When I finished coloring
I took a splash embossing folder and rand the 
background panel through my big shot.
The sentiment is also a find from internet and
absolutely love it! This I can share with you.
I found it HERE, so you can all grab it too!

As I did a lot of coloring here,
yeah this card is also for day 27  of
The Daily Marker.

Thank you so much for looking

Coffeelovers Spring blog hop: day 3

Welcome to day 3 of the 

Don't forget to add your own card
so you can win one of the fabulous prizes.

This card is inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch
and made with the digital freebie on the
  Verve Stamps blog.
You can download these stamps for a short
period of time HERE.

This is the Mojo Monday sketch and as you
can see I have turned it for my card.
Even though I used different colors,
can you see my inspiration?!!
For the background I embossed the paper
with the Tim Holtz splashes folder
and for the circle I used some design paper.
The cup is colored with markers and in the heart
of the flower I added a sticky pearl.

Now with some of the design papers I had left from
yesterdays card, I decided to make an other one.
I make this card for The Daily Marker
colorchallenge day 26.

For this card I used the same sketch, as I had
these cut papers left (the design paper was
two sided).
Here the finished card. I used:
Michael Strong's tulip and coffee stamp

Here you see the sketch again that I also
used yesterday.

First i stampd the large tulip and embossed it
with white embossing powder. The tul;ip is cut out 
with its matching metal die. I printed Brentwood
and colord him with markers. And to make the
card also count for the Coffeelovers blog hop
I gave Brentwood a full cupof coffee.
I hope he enjoys his cup outside in the Spring sun.

Thank you so much and
have a latte creative day!

Spring Coffee blog hop day 1

Today is the start of another wonderful
Coffee Lovers blog hop.
You can find all the details
and ways to win prizes here.

Today this is my contribution:
Coffee for Easter.

I used a variations of stamps and papers from
my stash to make these cards.
For the first card I embossed the background with a 
Tim Holtz rays die and punched out some oval shapes
for the egs. The bow on the egg is also a punch.
The cup on the center egg is from Create a Smile.
The bunnies are from Club Scrap and the sentiment
is from Stampin'Up!

For this card I used an alcohol background that was
 had lying around. The cups are dies from 
STAMPloration, but the sentiments are from
Verve Stamps.

Thank you for looking
and more coffee tomorrow.
Creative greetings,

Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge: Digital

Welcome to the March Club Scrap Artist Team digital blog hop.
We share with you what you can do with
I hope you have arrived here from
and seen what wonderful work she shared with you.
If you happen to lose your way, you can always go
the the Club Scrap Blog where you 
find all the members of the Artist Team.
As it is Spring soon and all the bulbs are  all around
us here, I loved to make these paper bags to decorate
the flower pots. With the digital kit I created the
sentiments on the bags.
For the background to the sentiment I used this 
aquarel splash as a background. I leave it here for you to
pick up and make your own paperbag.

So after I created a few sentiments, I printed
all of them on ordinairy copy paper.
I used the word program for this and  eyballed
the sentiments to be in the middle of the page.
Next I crumpled the paper before making it into
a paper bag.

Now you smoothe the paper and fold it like
you see here. Add some tape to the short side
to glue the sides together.
The bottom is folded towards the inside
and the top and bottom are taped again.
Now the bag is finished.
Depending on the size of the pot you put inside
you can make the bag a little larger or smaller.
Also you can change the hight by folding over
the top a little more. I used food jars inside the
paper bag (you have them small and large).
Here a template I found about the folding.
If you click om the image you can see a 
image and have a better view.

I also made one as a birthday gift.
As an extra touch I added the ribbon.

Close up to the sentiment.

And of course these paper bags have little card
for when you give the paperbags as a gift and 
you can add a little note to it.These cards are 
4,5 x 2,75 inch folded double.
As you see I am super handy with photoshop, but I can do
some simple things, like 2 layers (a sentiment to a picture) and
with only that you can make great projects. Even if you have no
experience, you can just print the images and use those to maek
a card. This is called hybrid crafting.

You need more ideas?
Hop over to Jennifer's Blog
and see what she has come up with.

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!
