Today's first entry into the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is a 3D Pop-up card. I usually like challenges in cardmaking and this one was extremely challenging to make! But the results are kind of nice. (Tutorial is here- extremepapercrafting.com/2011/05/cup-pop-up-card-tutorial.html
The sentiment (divided between the front and inside of the card) is a freebie from lovesvg.com. (They have a ton of great coffee related sentiments. So fun!) And the coffee mug on the cover is a Jolee's sticker.

This little freebie from Gerday Steiner makes a really cute graduation card. I rolled a small rectangle of white paper into a diploma and tied a small piece of gold cord around it. Then cut his wing away from his body, inserted the diploma and taped the wing over it. A added a little bling with gold photo corners and gold stars, which I also carried over to the inside sentiment.

My third and final entry into the current SumMoreFun challenge is based on the top right photo on the mood board. I was excited to learn, via google, that Royal Enfield is a motorcycle brand, and it sounds like a pretty famous one. (However, I live in Wisconsin, the home of Harley Davidson, so it was a new name to me!) I used a motorcycle stamp (don't know the name of the company, it is no longer mounted) plus a sentiment that I found on Pinterest. I used a fun font to write it out and printed it off. To add the illusion of movement to the motorcycle I purposefully smudged the image, pulling my fingers through the ink before it dried. (This works best if you stamp the image on glossy paper and gently pull the ink in the opposite direction of the desired movement.) Am also entering this card into several other challenges, one requires a masculine card, another requires a color scheme of B&W and one other color.
