Happiness is a Cup of Coffee!

I love this new stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  The Coffee Café Stamp Set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies make a simply delicious combination! Plus, you’ll save 10% when you buy them in a bundle!

  • To start, I used Crumb Cake for the base of the card (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches folded in half) followed by Whisper White for the next layer (5 1/4 x 4 inches). I glued these together and put them to the side for the moment.
  • My next step was to take another piece of Whisper White Cardstock and run it through the Big Shot with the square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut it out.
  • Repeat this, as you will need two of them.
  • I will be placing these behind the coffee cup. Since we don’t have rectangle Framelits I decided to use two squares and disguise them behind ribbon and paper. Tricky!!!

  • The coffee cup outline and words were stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock. The coffee cup lid was stamped in Soft Sky on Whisper White.
  • I stamped a heart on Whisper White Cardstock with Garden Green Classic Ink. Then I used the Big Shot to cut all of these pieces out with their coordinating Framelits.

I used 3 different designs from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (DSP)

  • Cut out a piece of the dot paper that is 5 x 21/2
  • Cut out a piece of the brown striped paper 37/8 x 1 inch.
  • Take the DSP from the set that has the small coffee cups on it and cut out 3 cups.
  • Use the Crumb Cake 3/8’ Classic Weave Ribbon and wrap it around the brown striped piece of DSP that you just cut and tie a bow.
  • Attached it right over the two stitched squares making sure that you create a big enough rectangle for your coffee cup to fit on.

  • Grab all your pieces and adhere the cup to the stitched squares & ribbon using the Dimensionals. Don’t forget to put the splash stick in your cup (the Framelit that looks like a heart on the top of a stem).
  • I added Dimensionals to the back of the stitched square as well (I can’t help it – I love all the pop!)
  • Attach the dot DSP to the base of your card and then attach the cup ensemble.
  • As a final touch, attach the 3 small cups we cut out.
  • You are all done!

I hope you had a great time creating with me today. Thank you so much for stopping by.
