Saturday Blog Hop – Favorite New Catalog Set

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring “Favorite New Catalog Set” for their cards this week.  I wonder if it will be as difficult for the rest of the Design Team to choose just ONE set!  I love a LOT of the new stamp sets in the catalog!  But, I narrowed my selection down to Coffee Cafe.  Really…it was the first set in the new catalog that I knew I just HAD to have, even though I have every other coffee set that Stampin’ Up! has ever made!  lol!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Pool Party cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock is placed on top.
  • The Coffee Break DSP piece is cut to 1-1/4 x 4 and added across the front.
  • Three different sized Stitched Shape circles were cut from Old Olive, Pool Party and the coffee bean pattern in Coffee Break DSP, then adhered to the front.
  • The large Coffee Cup image was stamped with Early Espresso Ink on Crumb Cake, then the greeting stamped inside with Early Espresso Ink.  It was cut with the Coffee Cups Framelits and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The lid was cut from Whisper White and the stopper heart was cut from Berry Blast cardstock and tucked on the lid.  It was added to the top of the coffee cup with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front of the card.
  • The little hearts were stamped with Berry Blast Ink randomly and a few scattered rhinestones were added for a little sparkle.
