Ocean & Coffee Theme Framed Art

I have been busy getting ready for my upcoming framed art classes and I’m thrilled at how excited everyone is to attend!  I’ve already shared the wine theme framed art in November and today I’ll be sharing the ocean & coffee themes, along with some updated pictures of the wine theme. So much fun and it’s all on a 12 x 12 canvas!

If you’d like to purchase a finished piece to call your own, just head on over to my Etsy store here.

If you love the ocean and walking on the beach, then you’re a lot like me and you’ll understand my inspiration for this beach themed art.  One of my favorite beaches in Oregon is Turtle Rock in Gold Beach.  Maybe you can see from this picture how this beach got it’s name…and that’s me sharing my morning coffee 🙂

Turtle Rock in Gold Beach Oregon

This rock formation is huge, so I am standing on a ledge in the foreground, which you cannot see, so that I could share my drink with Mr. Turtle.  Without that ledge, I couldn’t have even reached his chin!

The ocean & coffee…two of my favorite things!!

Now without further ado, here’s the framed art…

I had so much fun pulling out lots of different stamp sets and accessories to create these pieces.

Here are a couple more updated pictures of the wine frames that I shared in November.

Triple Fold Technique and Tutorial with Coffee Cafe

Coffee Cafe Tri Fold Tutorial, www.regalstamping.com

This Triple Fold technique is a fun way to use coordinating designer paper for a colorful “wow” factor. With just 3 score lines, it’s easy and fun to make. Let’s get started!

Triple Fold Tutorial, www.regalstamping.com

Cut a Soft Suede panel measuring 12″ x 5 1/2″.

Score along the 12″ side at 1 3/4″, 4 3/4″ & 7 3/4″.
The first score line is a valley fold, then mountain, then valley. Your card base is now ready to be decorated!

Triple Fold Technique, www.regalstamping.com

You will need three pieces of designer (printed) paper to decorate the card base. The measurements are:
Front section- 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″
Middle section- 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″
Back section- 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ and a white panel measuring 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″. This white panel will be where you stamp your sentiment.

The card will be held shut with a belly band, so you’ll need two pieces of paper measuring:
1 1/4″ x 11″ (card stock)
1″ x 11″ (designer paper)

Glue the 1″ strip onto the 1 1/4″ strip and then somewhat loosley wrap it around the card, overlapping the ends and gluing them together.

Stamp the coffee cup pieces and assemble, gluing it to the belly band at the front of the card.

Slide the belly band off of the card and finish embellishing the inside of the card as desired.

Coffee Makes Me Happy!

I can’t start my day without a cup of coffee.  Don’t even talk to me until I’ve had a cup!  It took my husband a long time to learn this and while he now knows it, he sure doesn’t understand it.  He has joked that I should just hook up to an I-V filled with coffee!  Nope, it’s the flavor and smell that I love…an I-V won’t work!

Coffee Cafe Bundle, Foil Frenzy and Bundle of Love DSP

This coffee card features a background of the lovely Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper, and yes, those are metallic polka dots in Soft Sky!  It’s so much prettier in real life!  There are three other foil colors in this pack besides the Soft Sky…there’s Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tangerine Tango.  All are simply gor-ge-ous!!

Then I used a piece of Bundle in Love Designer Series Paper behind the coffee cup.  The words are stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then I pieced in the three words that are stamped with Early Espresso ink on Soft Sky card stock.

If you love coffee the way that I do, you’ve might need the Coffee Cafe Bundle so that you can make your own coffee cards.  I see myself buying a lot of coffee stand gift cards in the future as a great way to say “thank you”, complete with a hand-made card!

Order your own bundle today by clicking on the product picture below and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up store.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wood Crate with Coffee Cafe

 

Coffee Cafe and pop up Wood Crate

 

My life is full of coffee lovers (including myself!), so I had to order the Coffee Cafe Bundle (#145331 ) as soon as it was available. I also had to have the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper because the colors in it really speak to me and I just fell in love with it at first glance!

Wood Crate with Coffee Cafe

The inside of this card is where the magic happens.  I made a crate using the new Wood Crate Framelit (#143730), stamping it with Hardwood (#133035), cutting out the bottom sections of the crate before assembling and then adhering it to the inside of the card.  It folds flat when you close the card and is put together similarly to the “card in a box” technique which became popular over the past couple of years.

I glued a section of a punched circle next to the crate and used it as a pocket for a gift card.

Here’s another picture.  The images inside the crate are cut from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (#144155).
