A Perfect Blend – just for Coffee Drinkers!

Now who doesn’t drink coffee?  OK – I can think of a few folks namely my sister and one or two of my sons.  But most people sip on coffee every now and than.  At our August Stamp Camp, we are going to create a card honoring those who drink coffee. 

Coffee 1“Given enough coffee, I could rule the world temporarily.”  What a perfect message to go with the coffee cups from the Perfect Blend stamp set.  The color scheme for this card is Mossy Meadow, Pistachio Pudding, and a touch of pink.  However, you could stamp the cups and message in any of the 50 Stampin’ Up colors.  The cups are stamped and easily cut out.  The label and top are stamped a second time on the back of your choice of DSP from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack (48 sheets – 4 each of 12 double-sided designs 4 1/2 X 6 1/2 for $6.95).  The label and top are cut out and the fronts adhered to your coffee cup.  How cute and simple!  The background is rather unique – the Chevron Border is punched along the border and the layer is then run thru the Big Shot with the arrows embossing folder.  A bit of gorgeous grunge was added to the message which was shadowed with a Mossy Meadow “cloud” die cut from the Word Bubbles Framelits.  I chose to add a pink dahlia in the corner to bring out the pink in the DSP, but other dahlia colors are available as well as a full selection of candy dots.  The message from the set that was used inside the card reads:  “coffee & friends are the Perfect blend.”  This cute stamp set is $10.95 and found on page 116 in the 2014-15 catalogue.  A small Starbucks gift certificate would be perfect inside this card for a friend celebrating an occasion. 

This is the second card we will be creating at the August Stamp Camp.  I noted the dates and times in yesterday’s blog so I won’t repeat myself.  The cost which covers all the supplies and tools remains at $12.00.  You only need to bring yourself!
