I love the Coffee Café set in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. You’ve probably guessed that already, because I use it a lot! Coffee is my absolute favorite beverage. I love the warm, bitter goodness, the smell, everything. And I don’t think it’s just the caffeine that I love (although that does help!), because I enjoy a good decaf as well.
Mike, Jon, and I have been ordering coffee from Camano Island Coffee Roasters, and they have an amazing decaf. It’s nice and bold, and if I didn’t actually put the coffee into the pot, I wouldn’t know it was decaf. It’s that good. The company also has a lot of integrity, so that’s a plus for me as well. If you’re interested, you can visit their site here.
You probably didn’t notice, but all this talk about coffee made me want a cup, so I took a quick break. I’m back now.
I was playing with the set the other day, and made this card.
It’s a CASE of a card I received from a fellow demonstrator, Merrilee, that we met at OnStage in Salt Lake City in November. She was so sweet, and I loved her card. Here’s Merrilee’s card.
See? Same card, just different colors and Designer Series Paper (DSP) designs.
Here are the details for my card. Stamp the thanks a latte sentiment in Garden Green ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then diecut the lid, cup, sleeve, and sentiment using the Coffee Cups Framelits. (If you bundle the Coffee Café stamp set with the Coffee Cups Framelits, you’ll save 10%.)
Cut the oval layer of the Coffee Break DSP using the Layering Ovals framelits, then layer the pieces of the cup together and adhere to the oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Layer the stamped and diecut images to a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Coffee Break DSP, then layer to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Crumb Cake panel. Adhere it to a Soft Sky card base (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, folded in half to form a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card).
Merrilee diecut one of the small coffee cups from the DSP and adhered it inside the card. It’s a sweet touch!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
