3 Vintage Style Coffee Cards with Anthony's Paper Craft and the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Hello everyone!!  The 2019 Spring|Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is in full swing!! 


And Anthony's Paper Craft has a new set of vintage style stamps called Coffee 2.  Since I am on his design team, I thought it was a good time to push myself out of my comfort zone.  In the end, I made 3 vintage/coffee/masculine cards that I am really happy with!!  And I hope you like them too.

Not knowing which image(s) would talk to me, I started by putting all the images into my Misti and stamping them on to a piece of white cardstock and, then, cutting them out with my Scan N Cut.  I decided to give them a border since it's easier to cut a border than to add one!  


I wanted the images against a more rustic/vintage type of background and I went searching thru my digital paper files.  I found a pad called Barista, by Basic Grey,  that had a cool wood grain pattern and another of burlap.  So I printed them on to A4 white cardstock.   



For the first card, I made the sentiment on my computer, printed it onto white cardstock, and then used a stitched rectangle to cut out the area I wanted to use.  I then colored in two of the images using BIC Fine Markers, put pop-dots behind them and adhered them next to the sentiment.  I layered this on to a piece of red cardstock and then onto the card front over the burlap digital paper.  A few sequins and I was done!  


For the 2nd and 3rd cards, I started with top folding A2 card bases to which I adhered the digital papers - one with the wood grain and the other with the burlap again.   I also used two stitched rectangle dies to cut a piece of white cardstock and a piece of brown cardstock for each card front.  



For the card with the burlap background, I decided to stamp the sack of coffee beans in the lower right corner, then I fussy cut the grinder and adhered it above the sack of beans, fussy cut the coffee label and adhered it with a pop-dot and then I adhered the "Adventure Awaits", which is a Tim Holtz quote chip, along the bottom.  I used Tombow markers (942, 969, 992, 620, and N60) to color in all the images.  



For the 3rd card, the one with the wood grain background, I used some of the other images to also give a masculine/vintage feel - but with some color this time.  I used some old Prismacolor markers to color in the cup and the coffee beans.  



I'd love to know which card you like the best.  I love the last card the best but that's probably because of the colors popping off the card. 

I hope you check out the blog hop and the amazing coffee cards over on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's site as well as the coffee images over on Anthony's Paper Craft.  


Until next time....hugs from Brasil!!

  6. Aha! You fooled me with the burlap; thought it was the real deal (not digi) until
    I read your post. It looks fabulous. All three cards are beautifully designed, and
    tho more masculine, could easily be for a woman, too.
