Fall 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

 

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fall 2017 Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop! At Stampendous we are always excited when we can join in with this super fun event. Last Spring over 1,000 people linked up to this wonderful hop. There’s a lot of coffee loving card makers out there!

We’ll be offering a prize for them this time. It’s our Laurel Burch Tea Cup and our Laurel Burch Dream Wish Sentiment. We think they go great together like coffee and… oh…. anything!

REMEMBER: the prizes aren’t for commenting, they are for making a coffee/tea themed project, posting it online, and linking it to their blog. They will choose the winner and tell us where to send it. The winner can choose wood mounted or Cling Rubber stamps and must have a U.S. mailing address.

 

We have some awesome samples using these super festive stamps! Take a look:

Spring Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

We are joining a fantastic event with a community of card makers that love coffee, tea, and cocoa as much as their papercraft supplies! The Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog has a spring theme blog hop, and we are hopping along!

Our fresh spring project is a trio of bookmarks, perfect for a relaxing time outside with a good book or three!

All three were stamped with Coffee Talk Perfectly Clear Stamp Set in alcohol marker safe ink then reversed masked to create patterns on two of the cups with Fronds Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. The coffee cups were masked and partially covered with the edge of another sticky note to create the horizon. Stencils and airbrush tool or stamped and colored patterns were added on each bookmark (from left to right): Jungle Leaves and Flower Lace stencils, Stone Background stencil and Bouquet For You Perfectly Clear Stamp Set, and Picasso Shield/Stencil Tool (video) and Wood Background Stamp.

Eclectic Teacups

Our set of teacups as eclectic individuals as they are stack up nicely together. The Teacup Trio Stamp is perfect for invitations to friends, or a scrapbook page about the tea lover in your life, but let’s not forget the tea lover themselves!

If you’ve ever wondered what to gift the tea lover who has everything, what about a stamped and hand painted tea box! Artist Consultant Debbie Cole created this amazing project, perfect for storing all those special items for taking tea. If you must know she’s created a list of supplies and instructions to demystify the box to make one of your very own.

Tea Time Style

How about a bit more tea time with our great Teapot Posies stamp? It is always enjoyable to see the varying styles on the designers samples when they come in during catalog time. It’s a sign of a great image and we’ve seen many styles with Teapot Posies.

Here’s a sample by Janelle with a sweet country style. Supplies and instructions are available by clicking on either the image or the caption.
