While DPP is not sponsoring the Coffee Lover’s Hop this year, they have certainly sponsored it in the past, so I thought it would be fun to create a card using one of their newest hot drink mixes. And yes I know this blend was meant for ‘hot cocoa’ but I thought it went perfectly with my coffee themed card.
I started this shaker by blending three shades of brown over some watercolor paper. I used Distress Oxides in Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso.
I then both sprayed and splattered the watercolor paper with Distress Oxide Spray in Vintage Photo.
Using coordinating dies, I die cut the watercolor paper into a clean rectangle and three circles in a diagonal across the paper. I saved the three cut outs and adhered them to the A2 card frame.
I built up the shaker element inside the card, and filled the three openings with the Hot Cocoa Sparkle Blend Mix.
I added an extra layer of acetate over the filled holes so I could easily place the shaker element over my card frame.
Onto some alcohol ink friendly cardstock, I stamped two coffee images from Gina K Designs and colored them with my copics, keeping the colors in a neutral brown color. I then fussy cut out the images.
I adhered the coffee cups onto the card frame, letting them over lap a little.
Using a sentiment from the same stamp set, I added a fun ‘coffee’ themed sentiment in Ground Espresso Distress Oxide.
Finally, I hand adhered a few more sequins onto the card frame front just to add a little more bling.
Let me know in the comments below what drink themed project you would make with this blend? Until then, happy crafting.
