Perfect Blend - Stampin' Up!

With so many coffee lovers out there, Perfect Blend really is the perfect set to make sweet cards for the coffee lovers in your life.  The paper used on the background of the first card is Lullaby from the new 2014/2015 catalogue.

Paper is from the now retired Fresh Prints.  I stamped the cup (or parts of the cup) image three times; cut out the relevant pieces and glued them together to make a fun image.

Sale-a-bration paper was used for the last two - Sweet Sorbet.  The so easy to use Candy Dots were used on the final card.  The cards were inspired by a sweet card by Rita Wright - a Stampin' Up! demo!

I ended making about 25 of these cards with the various papers.

The set comes with 3 stamps; the coffee cup and two sentiments.  I've included the price for clear mount.  It is also available in wood and in a brush image for digital scrapbooking, which can be used with My Digital Studio or other digital programs.

Honeycomb Embossing Folder - Stamping with Embossing Folders

A few weeks ago, Splitcoaststampers introduced a tutorial on how to stamp with embossing folders. They used this honeycomb folder and similar colours.  I didn't have water-colour paper so I used Shimmery White card stock instead and it worked just fine.  I love the subtle sparkle in that paper.  In this first card I used the Hello stamp from Lacy & Lovely (now retired).  I used some very old white with silver crochet cotton and coloured it with the new Blendabilities to co-ordinate with my card stock.

This was the first card I made and used Stampin' Up!'s white twine which I coloured.  The Rhinestones are also tinted with the new Blendabilities!  Sentiment is from Really Good Greetings.

Sentiment for this third card is from Walk in the Wild.

Card stock and ink colours:
Coastal Cabana
Pear Pizzaz

So I now have a new way to look at embossing folders! 

Thanks for stopping by!
