A trio of Coffeehouse Projects

A trio of Coffeehouse Projects

Karen Wyngaard

Welcome to Club Scrap's stop on the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop! As a special treat, we have a trio of Coffeehouse projects to share. Most of the supplies used are from our December 2019 Coffeehouse collection.

Coffeehouse Projects Trio

Stamped Card

The first project is a greeting card featuring Coffeehouse stamps. To create the background panel, apply Distress Oxide ink to watercolor paper and spritz with water. Stamp the cup "ring" and sentiment with Ground Espresso Oxide ink.

Ink the coffee cup image with Watermark ink and stamp onto dark brown paper. Sprinkle with white embossing powder, tap away the excess, and heat to melt.

Explosion Cards

The next project is a set of four "explosion" cards. Follow Club Scrap's Deluxe Card Making Formula #8 to trim six plain papers. Sort and assemble the cut pieces to build the card structures.

Download the Coffeehouse hybrid kit to create printable sentiment panels. Resize chosen artwork to 3.25 x 4.5" and print onto Ivory super-smooth cover stock.

Use Earth and Red hybrid ink to stamp the interior panels. The card creates an "explosion" when opened . Fun, right?

Mini Squash Book

My final project is an adorable mini squash book. This sweet little book measures 3.25" square. Decorate inside and outside with artwork printed from the Brewed Awakenings hybrid kit.

Construct the inside pages by origami folding three 6 x 6" Latte plains. Connect them using Bookbinding Glue in a needle-tipped applicator. Trim 2.75" square inside panels from coordinating paper. Cut select panels on the diagonal to fit the folded sections.

Glue a length of red satin ribbon between a decorative panel and the cover to create the closure.

Wrap 3.25" mat board squares to create the front and back covers. (Mine is wrapped in custom-tinted handmade paper made with Arnold Grummer's PaperMill kit.)
