Cards, Pod Holder & Tag Using the Coffee Lover's Kit by Eva
Happy Monday Creative Friends! It’s Eva here with a few fun pieces to share with you today. I decided to give one more shout out to the Coffee Lover’s Kit. This kit has been a ton of fun to work with. So staying with today’s theme, grab a cuppa coffee and enjoy the post. I have several projects to share with you today. First up, two cards.
Both of these cards feature images and sentiments from the 6x8 stamp set in the kit. The images in this set really scream “paper piece me” when I look at them. Big open spaces, great for patterned paper pieces.
I had a few 6x6 paper pads laying around that needed some love so I pulled a few pieces out of the stash that coordinate and off to town I went stamping and cutting.
Stamp the image on the white card panel first, then on the pieces of coordinating patterned paper.
Color any pieces of the image that will not be paper pieced before you add the pieces.
Then cut, cut, cut away.
A couple of tips for paper piecing.
1.) When cutting pieces use a small pair of scissors.
2.) Put adhesive on the back of the image before you cut the pieces out. I used double stick tape or my ATG gun. This helps stabilize the paper as you cut and even the smallest pieces have adhesive on them once you are done cutting.
3.) Cut in the middle to outer edge of your stamp line. That way you will get all of the image covered with your cut piece.
4.) Use a grey watercolor marker (I use tombow) and run it around the outer edges of the cut piece to get rid of any white on the edge.
5.) Feel free to add details with markers or pencils to your patterned paper pieces.
Once the images were colored and the paper pieces added,I added some shading with grey to the sleeves and details to the coffee with a white pen and glossy accents.
Next up, I tried a little gifty project.
I decided to try a box with a few coffee pods, PERFECT for the theme of the day!
Honestly, I did this “fly by the seat of my pants” style. No instructions, just some measuring and trial an error. I am sure had I looked there are probably instructions somewhere on the internet for a coffee pod box, lol. But why make things easy???
Once I figured out the clear box, I embellished it with some paper scraps cut into strips. I did use the Stripe Die for the bottom piece. I then heat embossed the fun sentiment on the strip piece before applying it to the box.
Last, I decided to make a little tag to add to this collection of goodies.
I decided I needed a little glitter goodness added to this group of projects. I used the heart shaped Coffee Lover Image from the 6x8 stamp set in the kit along with the coordinating die. I heat embossed with some sparkling gold embossing powder. So cute and simple!
Here is one last look at all of the projects from today.
