Father’s Day Coffee Card

Father’s Day Coffee Card is what we have for you today. If you are here for the 2018 Spring Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop be sure to click HERE to get to the first post however, be sure you read this one too because we have more prizes here.

I wanted to create something for the 2018 Spring Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and so I tried to think outside of the box and create this Father’s Day Coffee Card. I used four different stamp sets and I love how it came out!

The stamp sets I used were the A Creative Journey with Melissa Photo Booth Fun Stamp Set, the A Creative Journey with Melissa Sign Language Alphabet Stamp Set, the A Creative Journey with Melissa Coffee, Tea and Wine – OH MY! Stamp set and the A Creative Journey with Melissa Coffee is my Liquid Therapy Stamp Set.

Supplies Needed for the Father’s Day Coffee Card

A Creative Journey with Melissa Photo Booth Fun Stamp Set

Our A Creative Journey with Melissa Sign Language Alphabet Stamp Set

A Creative Journey with Melissa Coffee, Tea and Wine – OH MY! Stamp set

A Creative Journey with Melissa Coffee is my Liquid Therapy Stamp Set.

Stamp Block

Card Base

Card Mat

Decorative Sentiment mat

Solid sentiment mat

Paper to stamp sentiment on

White twine

Scissors

Adhesive

Ink

Manual die cut machine

Embossing folder

Chameleon Pens

First, take out your manual die cut machine, embossing folder and solid color mat for your card base. Place your paper in your embossing folder.

Run your embossing folder through the machine.

How awesome is the texture on this paper, right?

Pace adhesive on the back of the paper and adhere to the card base. Set it aside.

Take out your paper to stamp your sentiment on, block, ink and the coffee cup from the Coffee is my Liquid Therapy set as shown. Place your stamp on your block and ink it. Stamp your coffee cup on your paper.

Take out your Sign Language Alphabet Stamp set and stamp DAD inside your coffee cup.

NOTE: I decided to use the sign language alphabet stamp set for the video instead of the Everyday Uppercase and Emoticon stamp set as used in above picture. They both work great but I wanted to show something different to encourage your creativity!!

Take out your Photo Booth Fun Stamp set and take out the hat. Ink the hat and stamp it on your sentiments paper as shown above.

NOTE: If you want a little different texture on the hat, swipe your stamp across your ink pad and it will give it this look. Pretty cool, huh?

This is the close up of the stamped images.

Take out your Coffee, Tea and Wine – OH MY! Stamp set. Take out the sentiment needed and place it on your block. Ink your sentiment and stamp it on your paper.

Apply adhesive to the back of the patterned paper.

Adhere patterned paper to the card base of the Father’s Day Coffee Card.

Place adhesive on the back of the sentiment paper ad adhere to the blue mat.

Take out your white twine and wrap the bottom on your paper three times and then tie a knot.

Trim the excess twine.

Take out your chameleon pens and color your coffee cup and sign language letters.

Apply adhesive to the back of the sentiment paper and apply to the card base.

Here are both versions of the Father’s Day Coffee Card. I like them both!

Leticia used our two coffee sets as well as the A Creative Journey with Melissa Weather Related Stamp Set.

Alena made this lovely shaker card. She used distress oxide inks, the new versafine Claire ink pads and foam adhesive sheets to make the shaker card! I love how she added a little bit of sequins to bring out the beautiful colors of the paper and the ink on the shaker card. Super springy!

I love how Alena used the wood embellishment to stamp her sentiment on! The texture of the wood and the ink on the coffee cup are FABULOUS!

Leticia made this awesome card.  I love how springy and summery her creations are! She also is an amazing crop hostess!
