Life Happens, Coffee Helps

I sat down to play with the new Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies and have decided that I am totally in LOVE with this bundle!! I had so much much fun coming up with different ways to use the Coffee Cafe Bundle. You will find this money saving bundle on page 31 of Stampin' Up's NEW 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

Here is a peek at all the cards I made so far:

How To Make This Hand Stamped Card:

Start this card with a base of Soft Sky cardstock. Then, take the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper and cut the coffee stained one as a larger background and cut a few smaller strips using both sides of the paper as you wish. Adhere all the patterned papers on the card base one layered on top of the previous one.

Using the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Big Shot, cut two nesting circles out of Whisper White cardstock. On the inside circle, use Berry Burst ink to stamp the little hearts from the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

Use the Decorative Ribbon Punch to cut a fancy strip of Whisper White to layer in between the two die cut circles. Adhere all the pieces to the card front using SNAIL Adhesive and the Fine Tip Glue Pen for the punched trim.

For the Iced Coffee Cup

Start by stamping the following stamps, all from the Coffee Cafe stamp set:

  • →the straw with Soft Sky ink on Whisper White
  • →the cup with Basic Black ink on a Window Sheet and on Soft Suede cardstock; stamp the ice cubes with Basic Black ink on the Window sheet cup
  • →the whipped topping with Soft Suede ink on Whisper White cardstock
  • →the cup top with Basic Black Archival ink on Vellum Cardstock
  • →the greeting with Basic Black ink on Vellum cardstock

Use the Heat Tool to carefully set the ink on the Vellum and Window Sheets– just make sure not to melt them 🙂 Then, you will die cut all the stamped pieces with their matching dies from the Coffee Cup Framelits dies.

Now it's time to put the iced coffee cup together:

Before gluing the cup pieces together, use the Heat Tool and shape the Window Sheet cup die cut to curve it a bit. Then, use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere all the pieces together in order stamped as above, layering the straw in between the Soft Suede die cut and Window Sheet die cut, but under the whipped topping.

Note: The Fine Tip Glue pen did smudge some of the ink on the whipped topping and can be seen under the window sheet cutout which works well to make the coffee cup seem real, but definitely something to keep in mind for other projects.

Once all the cup pieces are dry, add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the cup, doubling up the dimensionals in the middle to allow the curve to remain on the cup front.

That's it! Now you've got this fun card you can give to a coffee loving friend!
