Coffee & Friends

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  I had some time this weekend to play a little and came up with this card featuring the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set.

Coffee, Friendship, Coffee Cafe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I am not a coffee drinker – I prefer tea, but so many of my friends and family are coffee drinkers that I thought it was time to use this set.

The coffee cup and coffee cup rings are stamped in Early Espresso.  I did place the Whisper White layer directly on top of the Crumb Cake card base before stamping the coffee cup rings from the Timeless Textures stamp set so that the rings would carry through to the base.  I then placed a layer of Blueberry Bushel in between the two layers for a bit of a pop of color.

The Coffee Cup and sentiment were stamped using the Stamparatus – such a great tool to use to align stamps and for mass production.  The Sentiment is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.

The coordinating framelits – Coffee Cups were used to die cut the cup and lid.  Dimensionals were used to pop the lid.

A pretty simple card, but so fitting for so many people in my life!

Sand & Shells

Hi! Today I am continuing with my masked background shown last week – this time featuring the So Many Shells set.

Friendship, Shells, Beach, So Many Shells, Stampin' Up!, SU! Masking

For this card, I created a rectangular mask with the Stampin’ Trimmer.  The mask measured  3 3/4″ x 5″ and I measured in 3/4″ on the sides and 1″ in for the top and bottom.  The background was created by sponging Sahara Sand in the lower left corner followed by Soft Sky and ending with Marina Mist.

The shells are stamped with Crumb Cake for the more detailed shell and Blushing Bride for the 2nd step.  Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen was used to color over the shells to give them a little sparkle.  The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

I do love this technique – and wanted to show it could be used for any type of card.  I hope you give it a try!

Make sure you stop back tomorrow – I’ll be hopping with the Top 10 from March’s International Project Highlights!  So excited!
