Hello Everyone!! I am so excited to again be participating in the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop!! Today I am sharing a fun spring inspired card using one of Joy Clair Stamps newest sets, Coffee Talk! I am in love with this set!! It is one of the larger 6 x 8 sets and it has soo many wonder ways to customize any card you decide to make!
This set is so versatile and can be used for soo many different card designs and occasions. Also, I want to mention in case you are not familiar with Joy Clair Stamps, when you buy a set from Joy Clair you not only receive the set, but you also receive a digital download that contains the cut files for the stamps you bought completely FREE!!! So if you have an electronic cutting machine which requires cut files to cut the stamped images, you get those 100% free of charge!!
My card is pretty easy to recreate but I do want to mention that I did use a chalk ink to stamp in the center of my coffee cups – for a more realistic look. If you aren’t familiar with chalk inks, you can check out my video and blog post all about the different types of inks HERE. Chalk ink does not stamp perfectly and retains a little bit of texture, which I thought was perfect for the coffee portion of the stamp. Plus, it is an ink that sits on top of the paper and is opaque – not transparent – so it looks more creamy like an actual coffee would look.
To add a bit of embellishment to this card I used a die from Neat & Tangled that cuts tiny hearts. This die is from the Tiny Cuts die set and it is full of these line style dies! On the inside of the card I simply stamped a sentiment from the same Coffee Talk set and also stamped another coffee cup with the same inks to finish off the card.
Be sure and create a card of your own to enter into the hop!! Joy Clair is a super sponsor and has an awesome prize being given away, along with a ton of other prizes! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used on my card today, you will find them all linked down below! Happy Crafting Everyone!!
