Tim Holtz Tea Time and Coffee Blueprints Cards


Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a couple more cards I made for the fall/winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I had a great time using the Tim Holtz Coffee Blueprints Minis again and this time decided to go for a chalkboard effect. 


I carefully arranged the images in a row on a large acrylic block then stamped and embossed them in white.  To create the chalky effect, I used Picket Fence Distress Ink and a blending tool, then also tapped the pad direct to paper.  I layered over the Christmas Paper Stash.


I chose a simple embellishment of the poinsettia from the Funky Festive dies, layered over a bed of Juniper Punched greens I inked with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.  A simple, but bold design.


For my next card I used Tim's Tea Time Bigz die.  I cut three of the same tea cup from Mixed Media cardstock.  To smooth out the cut marks on the cup I used in reverse, I sandwiched the cup and two pieces of thin chipboard and ran through my Big Shot.  I sponged the top one with Frayed Burlap, the middle with Fired Bruck, and the bottom with Peeled Paint.  I stamped images from Tim's Ornate (& Lace), (Stripes &) Holiday Type and Mini Swirly Snowflakes stamp sets. 


I stacked them together like so, then layered onto a trifold card.  For the background I used the (Nordic &) Plaid stamp.


I added another Funky Festive poisettia, layered with more Juniper Punched greens.


For the inside I was tickled to use Tim's new Cut Out Script alphabet dies to make my own custom coffee sentiment!  :)  Fa la latte!  I layered it over a Stitched Rectangle panel so there would be room to write inside.  The inside music is from Tim's Music (& Advert) stamp set.

I love your own sentiment These are all merry and bright cards. I love the red snowflake paper strip on the top card. These would be fantastic cards if you are giving a coffee gift card as a present. You are so good at getting all your cards finished on time- a true inspiration.

Your cards are stunning as always! Each one is unique. That stack of cups is so pretty and the blackboard style coffee etchings is the perfect farmhouse style card. I love them both!!

Inspirational cards Autumn; I may have to scrap lift both of them, as I'm still making cards here - running late, as usual. I'm such a fan of the tartan and the red flowers. TFS
