Coffee Card

Well, hello and welcome to my blog. Here we have my latest creation. This card was so fun to make and I can't wait to give it to a friend who does drink a lot of coffee. I first stamped all three coffee cups with Early Espresso on Whisper White and cut them out. I then stamped the same three again this time using Baked Brown Sugar for the paper and again Early Espresso and cut just the center section out. I glued it onto the center of the white cup. Next, I embossed the Real Red background paper using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder and Stampin' Up! Big Shot. It came out so good. I wrapped some 1/4" Cotton Ribbon in Whisper White around this layer and adhered the Real Red layer onto the Early Espresso card base. Next, I stamped the sentiment onto some Whisper White and punched it out with my Stampin' Up! Label punch. Finally, I adhered the sentiment onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Here are all the details:

  • Paper: Stampin' Up! Early Espresso, Real Red, Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Early Espresso, Real Red
  • Stamp: Stampin' Up! Perfect Blend
  • Punch: Stampin' Up! Label Punch
  • Ribbon: 1/4" Cotton Ribbon in Whisper White
  • Adhesive: Stampin' Up! Snail, Stampin' Dimensionals

Cupcake Card

     Here is the latest project I did for National Scrapbooking Day. I wanted something to celebrate the day but also something bright and cheerful. I think this card fits the bill just perfect.
     I started with cutting a piece of Melon Mambo in half then folded the card in half for my card base. I then cut a piece of Daffodil Delight to 3-3/4" x 5" and a piece of Whisper White to 3-1/2" x 4-3/4". I glued the Whisper White onto the Daffodil Delight. I stamped the Celebrate You onto the layered Whisper White. I then got started on the cupcakes. First, I stamped all the components of the cupcakes onto a piece of Whisper White. Next, I used the Cupcake Builder punch and punched out all the pieces. I then used some Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the cupcake pieces. Finally, I glued the layers onto the Melon Mambo card base and the card is finished.
     I hope you had a great National Scrapbooking Day and you got a lot accomplished. Thank you so much for coming to my blog and taking a look at my post. Have a great weekend! :)
