The Rabbit Hole Designs and Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop


Hey there!  Thanks for hopping over!  If you've arrived here from Dana's blog, you've almost finished your adventure into the rabbit hole.  I hope you've been inspired!  

I'm THRILLED The Rabbit Hole Designs asked us designers at Coffee Loving Cardmakers to help introduce them to the stamping (and coffee-loving) world through this fun hop. Let's take a peek at the coffee stamps available in their launch, shall we?  PSSST...You can click on each image below to go directly to each product in their SHOP HERE!  

So, whaddaya think?  Do you have a favorite?  I'm pretty inspired by all of them and I have a sneaking inclination that a few of my coffee loving pals are too.  

FREE SHIPPING!  Free shipping on orders of $15.00 before tax and shipping (US orders only).  No code necessary, exclusions apply.  


I decided to create a reverse image card using my Gelli Plate.  To create a reverse image, I just took the stamp, inked it up with Versafine Onyx Ink and then pressed it onto the Gelli Plate.  I then pressed white cardstock on the image and lifted the image onto the paper.  I hit it with my heat gun to set the ink and then started coloring with Copics.  I used the following Copic colors:
RV91, 32; E04; BG72; B52; E71; W7; Y21; E50 and white Jelly Roll.
After coloring the dino, I applied some ivory acrylic paint to the Gelli Plate, dropped a few drops of Pink distressoxide ink and then pressed my cardstock to the plate and lifted to reveal the color.  Next, I applied a bit of vintage brown distress oxide ink and then spritzed with water so it would run like drippy coffee.  I hit it with the heat gun again to make it dry.

Next, I stitched the background paper with my sewing machine and mounted this panel onto some gray cardstock.  I then spritzed some white ink and sparkle ink onto the panel so that some of the distress oxide ink could react.  I stamped the sentiment and then mounted the dino with foam squares.  To finish off the card, I applied various sequins and silver pearls as well as some pink/bown twine.
