Now onto the crafty inspiration...
When I saw MFT Cool Cup die I knew I just had to get it!! I am a coffee lover and I absolutely am head over heals in love with frosty ones!! Maybe because it more closer to a dessert at that point! MMMMmmmm, they are so super yummy!! I don't care!! It's still coffee and so so delish! So I figured I'd indulge myself by making coffee themed projects!LOL
My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 18
My Favorite Things Pierced Traditional Tag Stax
My Favorite Things Die-Namics LLD Cool Cup
My Favorite Things LLD Stay Cool
DCWV Mini Album Stack & Stencil Projects Stack
Spectrum Noir Markers- GB9, EB3, JG5
White Cardstock (Bazzill Basics)
VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad (Tsukineko)
2Way Glue Pen (EK Success)
1.5" Circle punch (EK Success)
I started by using my Cool Cup die to cut out all the cup pieces in white. The I ran it through again just cutting out the dome piece out of vellum.
Here I used my eBrush to airbrush my cup with a Spectrum Noir GB9 and the whipped cream with EB3 markers. Then ultimately decided I like the plain white better so I cut out a new topping and just left it white.
For the straw I went right over the top and colored it with a Spectrum Noir marker in JG5. This made it look like it came from a certain coffee house that is so popular.
Then I ran my completed piece through my Creative Station Lite machine.
For my card base I standing A2 (4.25"x5.5") sized card made from craft cardstock.
Then I die-cut the tag from MFT's Pierced Traditional Tags set. The double stitched circle and star is from the Blueprints 18 die set.
I used my Mega Runner to attach all my components to my card base. I used the Stay Cool stamp set and stamped my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Next, I attached a hemp bow onto my card front.... And, for a cute little touch I hand drew stitch lines and highlights with a white gel pen.
For the coffee caddy ... All I did was used the box that came with my coffees and traced around it to make a template. Then I traced & cut my templates out. Then I ran all my panels through my Xyron Creative Station Lite.
For the front of the caddy I mimic the same look of the card. Die cut a circle and star in coordinating patterned papers and attached with my Xyron Mega Runner.
For the caps I didn't do much. I really like the taupe color but did cover up the coffee brand/ logo. I used a 1.5" circle paper punch. It was enough to cover the dark green of the logo but not enough to bury the taupe color I like! AWESOME!!
For the thin green strip I used the long thin rectangle die in the Blueprints 18 set an cut it out in coordinating paper. Again attaching with my Mega Runner then trimming off any excess.
Lastly, I wrapped twine around the handle and tied it into a bow.
And here is my Coffee Caddy and Matching Card!!! I hope you enjoyed this project!!
