Jo – You are here

Below I have created 2 x card coffee inspired cards where I have used the WOW! Fab Foil with Deco Transfer Gel. To get this coffee bean background I have used a stencil and spread the transfer gel over the top with a spatula on white cardstock and set aside to dry. The transfer gel looks opaque to start with but as it dries it will dry clear and hard.
TIP – wash the stencil and spatula out straight away under soapy warm water.
This one panel I have created two cards by cutting it in half and used on two cards.
For something a little different I didn’t colour the actual stamped images from Trinity Stamps as I liked the boldness it leaves.
I have used some dies, kraft, black and white cardstock and coordinated and layered all the bits and pieced together.

2018 Fall |Winter Coffee Lovers Hop


Who wants to see some coffee loving inspiration! The fabulous Amy Tsuruta from Coffee Loving Cardmakers has organised another Super Sponsor hop. Today we kick off the 2018 Fall |Winter Coffee Lovers Hop. This hop will go to the December 7th 2018.

I have brought you an inspiration from the WOW Creative Team as WOW! Embossing Powder is generously donating 1 x $20 gift card for the Super Sponsor Prize.

Direct link to FALL | WINTER Hop Post–>

Winners of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop will be announced to the public Facebook group on Sunday, December 9th.


So lets kick start the hop with a coffee card inspiration made with WOW! Embossing Glitter in Clear Hologram Sparkle.  For the stamped images and sentiment I have used Coffee with Character stampset & coordinating dies. For the sentiment I have used the Coffee sentiments stampset. I absolutely love this sentiment as it has so many options and versatility to custom make your sentiments. I have selected a few of the coffee images and stamped them randomly with versafine Onyx black ink.  I also stamped the images on Lawn Fawn rainbow paper pack. Instead of die cutting the iamges out I fussy cut as I wanted to get close to the edges as possible. I really wanted you to see how sparkly the background is hehe.

I have heat embossed with Bright White Opaque embossing powder in super fine on a strip of black cardstock. I have to say both WOW Embossing products I have used today are my staples in my stash.

WOW! Embossing Glitter in Clear Hologram Sparkle I use in many ways. For today’s card creation I created my own glitter paper by pressing the  WOW Ultra Slow Drying Clear Ink over the Lawn Fawn pattern paper then sprinkling … shall I say coating with the powder….  over the top then heat setting it with my brand new heat tool.

TIP :- start the heat embossing process from the back of the cardstock or paper panel as this keeps the glitter from blowing away from the first intial contact, once the embossing powder starts to melt heat from the front / top side.

I die cut with a stitched circle die and foam mount on the white top folding card front.

I have place the stamped coffee images & sentiment on the circle  and that’s it.


Hope you all enjoyed todays card creation and don’t forget to visit the WOW designers line up for this special hop.
