Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s Spring | Summer Hop with Crackerbox Stamps

Hello! Welcome! I am here today to share a few caffeinated projects featuring Crackerbox Stamps in honor of the Spring |. Summer Coffee Loving Cardmaker’s Blog Hop! Crackerbox Stamps is a super sponsor this year and is offering a chance at a $25.00 gift code AND a custom stamp for the winner!! How cool is that?

I used a few different stamps to create my cards today, I will link them all at the end of my post for easy finding!

Both of my projects started with my background. I used my favorite Buffalo Plaid background stamps to create a rainbow colored background using my Misti and my Ink on 3 Atelier Ink cubes. Using the Misiti, or any stamp positioned, allowed me to keep the stamp in the same exact spot as I switched through the different colors. It also allowed me to create a second generation stamping before changing colors as well—so I created 2 backgrounds at the same time with little to no extra effort! That is always a win in my book!

After my backgrounds were complete, I cut them down to just under a standard A2 card front and matted them on black cardstock.

Next I stamped my images— Helen with Coffee and Coffee Heart Cup — with Copic friendly ink (I use Ink on 3 Blackout Ink) and then colored them both with Copic markers while keeping in mind the rainbow tones. I often will pull my colors for coloring from what I intend to use for my background—whether I stamped my background or want patterned paper—it helps me limit my choices LOL.

After I fussy cut the colored images out, I went and added my sentiments directly onto the background panel using black ink. I chose to glue the images directly onto the cards as well to make them a little more mail-friendly and the cards were complete!

I plan on sending these to a few fellow caffeinated crafty friends—do you like to send “just because” cards too? What are your go to designs? Let me know in the comments below!
