Hello stampers, crafters, and friends I hope that you are having a wonderful day. Usually my day starts with a couple cups before anyone else in the house arises. I use this time to plan my day and get things ready. I take time and check emails and answer them, among any problems for my Stampin’ business that I need to address. And, just let me tell you a couple cups of that hot sweet caffeinated liquid is just wonderful to give you the energy to get those much needed tasks done. So how many cups of coffee have you had this morning? Here’s a look at my card for today.
Tips & Tricks:
This card is really quick and easy to create using the Coffee Café bundle. The cost saving bundle comes with both the Coffee Café Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies. When you purchase them together you save 10%. Once you stamp your coffee cup onto your piece of whisper white cardstock all you have to do then is cut it out using the framelits and Big Shot. The coffee cup is so easy to stamp. But, before I cut everything out that needs to be cut I always do all my stamping. So for today’s card I stamped my cup on a piece of Whisper White that was about 4” x 4” and that gave me room to stamp the lid in Early Espresso Classic Ink. I went ahead and grabbed a scrap piece of whisper white from my scrap bin and stamped the sentiment. Once I had everything stamped I used the Coffee Cup Framelits and ran it through my Big Shot. I did do the Garden Green band separate; it was also from my scrap bin. I will give you a little tip to make sure your stamp doesn’t get out of line. If you will lay down your cup framelit and then place the stamp on the inside of it and then press your clear block to it. And, the stamp will stay in the perfect shape and you get the perfect cut everytime.
Now to take you card to the next level of fun and playfulness add in a little of the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. The Coffee Break Designer Series paper in the suite makes it just so easy to create the perfect card when you are using the products from the suite. The Coffee Break Designer Series Paper features some wonderful colors, which allows you to pull any of these colors to create a wonderfully fun card. The paper features Early Espresso, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Soft Suede, and Whisper White.
To give the lid a little lift from the cup I used the new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to put it up. They are the perfect size for this small-rimmed stamped shape. They just give the right amount of lift for this stamped image. A regular size Stampin’ Dimensional would be too big.
Suites are Sweeter:
This suite of products features the Coffee Break Cardstock pack (8 sheets each of Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, and Pair Pizzazz cardstock) to make your cardmaking easier. The Coffee Break Designer Series Paper each sheet is doubled-sided (there are 12 sheets in a pack so you get 2 each of six double-sided designs) for double the creative options. The Corrugated Elements are corrugated paper accents in 3 designs: tags, ovals, and hearts oh my. They are versatile enough for use on all sorts of coffee themed projects and some that are not. Also in the suite are three fabulous classic weave ribbons in Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, and Whisper White. These ribbons are an easy way to add style to any of your projects; you can tie it, loop it, or just simply wrap it. Each of these ribbons measures 3/8” wide for a bold dramatic look on your projects. To round the suite off you have the Coffee Cups Framelits dies and the Coffee Café Photopolymer Stamp Set. You can pick any of these items up in my online store 24/7. Below are the products in the suite that I did not use on my card today.
