Hello, everyone! Well do we have a treat for you today, we have the lovely Emily Leiphart sharing some amazingly beautiful projects. So here are what she has for us today:
Hi, everyone! I’m super excited to be a guest designer on the Altenew blog today! I’m a huge fan of their amazing products, I loved teaching at Altenew Academy and it’s always a pleasure to participate in their blog hops. I’ve created two cards on video for this special post.
This first card features two adorable foxes from Hug Me, combined with images from Coffee Love and a sentiment and background from Coffee Talk. I created the background by stamping the heart-shaped coffee ring in Sand Dunes, Rocky Shore, and Mocha inks.
Then I heat embossed the images and watercoloured them with distress inks. The sentiment itself was heat embossed on a sheet of vellum, which was overlaid on the background to soften the colors and allow the images to pop.
My second card features a one-layer clean and simple masculine card in a favourite 3.25″ x 6.5″ shape. I combined the Engineers Rule and Best Dad stamp sets. Many of you know that my husband is a mechanical engineer who designs bicycles for several big brand companies. When I saw the Engineers Rule stamp set, I knew I had to have it!
To create the layout for this card, I arranged the stamps themselves on the cardstock to make sure they would fit and form a rectangle. I really wanted to use the vice where the safety goggles are but it didn’t fit well in that space. Some of the images don’t come with filler stamps so I used other images from both Engineers Rule and Best Dad to add color without having to actually color.
I loved creating these cards for you and I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Wow! How amazing were all of Emily’s projects? We loved each and every one of them! We hope you enjoyed Emily’s cards as much as we did. Make sure to visit Emily’s blog to see more and don’t forget to leave her some love.
Thank you so much, Emily, for sharing your talents with us today, it was such a treat.
Starting out with my first card using the Simple Flowers set, I masked off three squares on a panel of white card. I then stamped images from the Simple Flowers set on post it notes, trimmed these out and laid these masks within the squares.
With all the masking now in place I blended inks in to the background of each square, from left to right, Evening Gray, Blush and Warm Sunshine. I then removed the masks and stamped the Simple Flowers images in Mountain Mist, Caramel Toffee, Frayed Leaf and Evening Gray.
I stamped the lovely large Beautiful sentiment from the set spanning the bottom of the right two squares. Finally I blended Mountain Mist in to a scrap of card and stamped and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment before trimming out and adding with foam adhesive.
For my second Coffee Love example, I set out the card in the same way by masking three rectangles. I then stamped images from the Coffee Love set within the rectangles. I used the matching dies to cut masks from post it notes and then blended the backgrounds to the rectangles in Blush, Evening Gray and Warm Sunshine. I stamped a sentiment from Coffee Love spanning across the top of the right two rectangles.
Finally I added some very simple Copic coloring to the images.
I didn’t add any shading as I thought the flat look went well with the retro style.
Here’s the two cards together. I really like the simple retro style with the pop of color.
You can click on any of the photos to see them in a bigger version :D Now here’s the video you can watch below or in HD at YouTube.
Have a great day and I hope you give retro stamping a try!
Hi, friends! This time, I came up with another layout on coffee using Altenew’s Coffee Love Stamp Set and Dark Chocolate Ink. I also have a process video start to finish on how to create this simple coffee layout. For those who love coffee so much, it’s time to do a memory keeping about it *wink*.
Here is the process video:
Enjoy the details of it:
This is my full layout:
Remember to do some memory keeping, not only about yourself but about your family or friends, you can do keep a memory of sweet things in your life. Happy creating.
Hello crafty friends, happy Monday! It’s Yoonsun here to share my cards using the recently released Coffee Love stamp set. Crafting and Coffee, they are truly inseparable, right?!
To create the card, I combined three stamp sets: Coffee Love, Watercolor Wonders, and Sentiments & Quotes stamp sets. First, I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Watercolor Wonders set on cold press watercolour paper panel in Distress inks, and then added a bit of water using waterbrush. Next, I stamped the coffee maker & mug from the Coffee Love set on a separate watercolour paper with VersaFine Pigment Ink Vintage Sepia, added a bit of brown and red colours, and then fussy cut them. I mounted the floral background panel on an A2 sized white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the coffee maker and mug cuts on the bottom right hand corner of the card front using foam tape. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the Sentiments & Quotes set in Jet Black dye ink.
Here is another card with the Coffee Love stamp set. First, I stamped the sentiment and coffee beans from the set on the Spicy Yogurt card base using dye inks (sentiment in Jet Black, coffee beans in Dark Chocolate). Next, I randomly stamped the coffee maker, cups, and beans onto watercolour paper panel using embossing ink and then white heat embossed. I then ink blended on it with Wild Honey and Vintage Photo Distress inks using mini ink blending tool, added water droplets. Once the blended panel was completely dry, I cut off the bottom edge using speech bubble edge die, and then mounted it on the Spicy Yogurt card front using foam tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Good morning! Today I’ll be bringing you a new blog feature, Caught by Altenew! We have been featuring customer projects every week on Instagram (#CaughtByAltenew), and those posts have been so popular that we decided to bring the fun over to our blog as well!
Every month, I will be highlighting projects shared by you – our fans and customers – from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and our Flickr group. Please share your projects with us via these platforms, and YOU might be part of our next feature!
We can’t wait to see what you create, and don’t forget to share them with us! #Altenew :)
This time I (Evelyn) wanna share how I created DIY pattern paper which some coffee images, so it would look like you used a piece from a tissue/wrapping paper the coffee shop you visited.
To create the background I used the Coffee Love Stamp Set and the Dark Chocolate Ink. I chose some small cups and coffee seeds and stamped them randomly in a brown cardstock. The color of the dark chocolate ink perfectly blended with the brown card stock.
When you apply the clear stamp and the ink does not look perfect, that is ok. I prefer not to have them perfect so it would look handmade. I kinda love this! If you like it darker, you can use distress techniques.
Once I am satisfied with my background, I chose some coffee pots and the same small cup used before from the stamp set. I stamped it on a white cardstock using the Caramel Toffee ink. I also did some coloring using the ink, water, and a brush. I applied the colors imperfectly so it would look like you drew and colored them by hand. To make it look dimensional I used foam tapes.
Here is the full layout picture! Doesn’t it looks like I took a table cover paper from the coffee shop I was in? :)
Hello, everyone! It’s Aga here and today I’d like to share with you a few cards I made using a great set called Coffee Love. It contains over 20 images: coffee pots, cups, coffee beans, and sentiments and it’s just a perfect set to create projects for any coffee lover!
For my first card, I used masking technique and stamped images with a black ink on a white cardstock.
Then I used Copic markers to colour them in a combination of light brown, pink, and grey and added a stripe of washi tape at the bottom. To finish my card I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a piece of black cardstock.
For my next card, I again used masking technique, but this time I used images from the set to stamp a background for my card.
When the background was ready I started to create some stencils that I used to colour my images in. I stamped the images on a post it note and fussy cut some part out. Then I used the negative cuts to mist my images with mist sprays. The sentiment I used here comes from the Coffee Talk Stamp Set.
My last card is a very quick and simple one. I stamped my images and sentiment with a black ink. Then I masked the background and added little flowers using a stamp from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set.
I once again used Copic markers to finish the card.
I hope you enjoyed these examples and you feel inspired to ink up this great stamp set!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
