Do you have a favorite?  Cocktails?  Chocolate?  Coffee?  I happen to be a chocolate and coffee person but not so much for cocktails.  Now my brother-in-law loves his cocktails, so his birthday card was the cocktail version.  My sister doesn’t do coffee or cocktails – but she adores her chocolate, so the chocolate version is for her!

12.01.22-Awesome-Coffee_thumb126Coffee, Coffee Coffee!  How many of you start your day (or end it) with a steaming cup of coffee.  The Nothing’s Better Than Bundle features the favorites of coffee, cookies, chocolate and cocktails.  we see the coffee version here.  The Petal Pink DSP is from the retired Magnolia Lane.  The left Petal Pink strip is embossed with the Wrapped in Texture 3-D  embossing folder.  The coffee cups can be stamped in any dark color but I think Early Espresso or Memento Tuxedo Black inks look best.  Although there is a stamp to both fill the coffee cup and color the saucer, I find it more fun to use Stampin’ Blends to color different shades of coffee, and different colors for each saucer. 


The cocktail glasses are so cute.  The stamp that fills the glasses has ice cubes!!!!!  Cocktails can be so many colors.  The lemons, of course, have been colored yellow with Stampin’ Blends.  The small cocktail umbrella can be colored any way you like.  Some are even pre-colored for you.  I loved coloring the umbrellas with 3 different hues.  The 3-layer sentiment allows for the featured image to be die cut in Tahitian Tide and adhered flat to the sentiment.  Like the coffee sample above, all other images are adhered with dimensionals.

12.01.22-Awesome-Chocolate-1_thumb86Now for my favorite – CHOCOLATE!!!!!  The chocolates are colored with Stampin’ Blends although there will be some uncolored ones available for you to color as you wish.  Different shades of Stampin’ Blends brown are used to give each trio a different look.  The fifth cluster is cut to fit on the sentiment layer.  In my archives, I pulled my ancient metal dots and adhered them to the sentiment layers – BUT I just noticed I missed the Cocktail card!  The dots can be colored if you wish but I like the grays and neutrals.

12.01.22-Awesome-Chocolate-msg-layerThe message layer for each card features a 4 X 1/2” strip of Magnolia Lane DSP and an image that matches your theme – a coffee cup, chocolate cluster, or cocktail.  This is a fun card and nice to have in your library for that special person.  Although the stamps and dies are no longer available as a bundle, they are available singly.  The stamp set – Nothing’s Better Than is #158295 – $22.00.  The Love You More Dies are $30 – #152698.

Stay tuned for THE FINAL 2022 CARD.

Warm Blessings, Rosemary – C(630.965.1965 – H(630.965.1965 –
