Love You A Latte - Coffee Chips Release and Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Lisa here!  Today I'm sharing a card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I've used the new Coffee Chips Chipboard along with a few other things!

I started by applying some Deco Foil Transfer Gel onto my base panel using the By The Beans stencil and a spatula.  When it was dry, I layed the rainbow foil over the top and ran it through my Minc.

 For this one, I added white glitter to the chipboard and thought I'd share with you how I like to glitter chipboard:

When I add glitter to brown chipboard I like to paint or color the chipboard first to make sure the glitter color is nice and solid without any spots that show through.  So for this one, I started by using some white acrylic paint and painted the pieces I wanted to use.

Once that was dry, I used my cleaned paint brush and painted on some glue... sometimes chipboard can bend or warp when you add glue so I like to apply it with a paintbrush so I can get nice even coverage, yet not over apply it.

While the glue was still wet, I poured the glitter over the top of the chipboard.  I find my fine tweezers from the shop really help with this whole process and to move the chipboard around without ruining anything with my fingers.  I do like to turn it over and press it into the glitter as well to be sure I get as much as possible to stick and then I tap it off and set it aside to dry.  Once it's dry, and before I add it to my project, I'll take a fine brush and brush off the excess onto a scrap piece of paper.

I love the sentiments on the Coffee'isms Stamp Set!  And they are perfect to use along with the Coffee Chips because you can easily substitute the chipboard version of the Coffee words instead of the stamp with some easy masking or with this sentiment, the Love You A is separate completely... so... easy peasy!  I just cut the pieces of the To Go Cup and heat embossed the Love You A onto the wrap and then once my Latte word was dry, I added that underneath it.  Then popped the whole thing onto the rainbow background!

Fun, right?
