Coffee Cafe Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

We have a great challenge for you at Cardz 4 Galz – Cocktails, Wine or Coffee. Since I don’t drink alcohol, it was a no-brainer to go with my personal favorite drink, coffee. Furthermore, I have some stamps that haven’t felt any love lately so it was time to dust them off. Ultimately, I chose Coffee Cafe because it had some fun coordinating dies. That will almost always be the deciding factor LOL.  Once you are finished here, I hope you visit our Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

MY SECRETS TO MAKING THIS PROJECT

  • Let’s do the background first. I started out with Soft Suede cardstock from the Neutrals 12×12 cardstock pack, cut at 12″x4 1/2″ and scored at 6.”
  • Then, I layered the designer paper from Poinsettia Place pack over Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered them to the card base.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Firstly, I stamped, cut and paper pieced the coffee cup.
  • After that was completed, I began stamping, cutting and adhering the layers to put behind it.
  • Once I had all of those adhered to the card base, I decided to use the sentiment from Warm Hugs. I stamped and cut it out with the coordinating die, then sponged the edges ever so lightly. To fill the center of the sentiment, I punched out a heart from Soft Suede scrap cardstock and popped it up for a little dimension.
  • Finally, to add the finishing touch, I placed a few copper embellishments (from an older kit).

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
