CHARMING CAFE

This fun-fold card was CAS’d from Cindy Brumbaugh.  Cindy has a video for Charming Café on youtube and I followed it step by step by step. 

04.21.18 Charming Cafe Lemon LimeThis see-through card is so cute.  The cascade of flowers and the café scene are colored with Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write Markers.  The dies that are part of this bundle make cutting the individual pieces a cinch. Watercolor Wash in Soft Sky is stamped on the 3rd layer (background) and leaves room for a generous message.

 

04.21.18 Charming Cafe added message There is room for a second, smaller sentiment below the café table.  I chose “LIFE IS BETTER WITH YOU IN IT” which is a stamp that comes with the Charming Café stamp set. 

The Fresh Florals Designer Paper (DSP) comes in 4 colors – Lemon Lime as used in the card above, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.  There are also 4 patterns available; I show 3 of the patterns in this post.  You can use the pattern of  your choice.

 

 

04.21.18 Charming Cafe Powder PinkThe flower cascades and café scenes are colored to coordinate with the basic color.  Ivory was used for the café floor as my Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend is MIA.  The café chair pads are colored in the matching pink, Lemon-Lime, or Berry Burst.  The coffee cups and vase are also colored.

 

 

04.21.18 Charming Cafe Berry BurstFinally, we see the Berry Burst card.  If you plan on making this card at May Stamp Camp, you MUST let me know what color you prefer – Lemon Lime, Powder Pink, or Berry Burst.  You can choose your Fresh Floral pattern as you make your card. 

I will be pre-cutting the actual card for you.  Why?  Because a 1/4 panel of the 8 1/2 X 11 card stock needs to cut out.  Actually, an additional 1/16” needs to be removed and that is the tricky part.  I do not have this technique perfected yet, so I am volunteering to do the tricky part for you.  However, the remaining cuts will be left for you,

Charming Café stamp set and framelits will be retiring the end of May or sooner if supplies run out.  To see all the retiring Stampin’Up items, check out this link Retiring Products.

Stampin’ Up is doing a major color revamp, something they do about every 5 years.  Some of the basic colors I love will be retiring with other colors coming on the horizon.  If you have some of the retiring colors, treasure them.  If your ink pads become dry, chances are I have the refills and can re-ink your pads for you.
