Coffee Cafe

Here’s another swap card I made  (21 of them!) for a New Annual Catalog swap.  I love the Coffee Cafe stamp set…just too fun!  Love that Designer Paper, too!

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Real Red cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 3-1/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White cardstock, the coffee beans were stamped in the upper right and lower left corners a few times.  It was placed on the front at a slight angle.
  • A 2 x 4 piece of Coffee Break Designer Paper was cut with a flag end, then added in the opposite angle to the front on the Whisper White layer.
  • Linen Thread was wrapped around several times and tied in the back, then the layer added to the front of the card.
  • The larger cup was stamped with Early Espresso Ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and the greeting with Real Red Ink inside.  It was cut out with the Coffee Cups Framelits.  The whipped cream was cut with the Framelit from Whisper White and placed behind the top of the cup.  Some Clear Wink of Stella was brushed over it.  It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A straw was cut 1/4 x 2 from Red Glimmer Paper and placed in the cup.

 

That’s it!  Pretty simple for a class M&T, don’t you think?

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.

CCMC464 Coffee Cafe

It’s Thursday…time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  It’s the last of our “Case the Catalog” challenges this month!  These have been fun…we’ll definitely be doing them again, I’m sure!  This time we could pick the layout from ANY of the cards in this selection!

 

I couldn’t wait to order the Coffee Cafe Bundle in the new Annual Catalog…of course, I’m a BIG Starbucks lover!  But, I really LOVE the old-fashioned coffee pots printed in the Designer Paper!  I picked the bottom right layout for my 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 square card.

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 Pool Party cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top of the base card, two 1/2 x 4-1/4 strips of the green stripe Coffee Break DSP were added to the back of a 2-3/4 x 4-1/4 piece of the chevron pattern in Coffee Break DSP, then added to the front.
  • The greeting from Coffee Cafe Stamp Set was stamped with Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White, then punched with the 2″ Circle Punch.  It was layered on the Starburst Circle punched from Garden Green cardstock.
  • Some Linen Thread was doubled up and tied in a bow, then added to the circle with a Mini Glue Dot.  The circle was popped on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The green coffee pot and cup were hand-cut from the Coffee Break DSP, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Three of the coffee beans were stamped with Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White, then hand cut and added to the front.

 

SUPER simple using the layout!  And I think, lots of FUN!  Check out the fun with the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary this week!  Then play along!
