Hi everyone! I'm at the Stampin' Up! OnStage Live this week. We have a tour of the campus today and I wanted to make a thank you card for our guide.
Since it is a tour of Stampin' Up! I thought all products in this card should be theirs. This was fun to make and a card that could be given to anyone - male or female. After all, who doesn't love coffee?
I stamped the cup and lid with Basic Black ink and used watercolor pencils to color them. The cup cozy is a really neat die that cuts it out and embosses it at the same time. I also colored a cup using the new Stampin' Blends but decided I liked the mottled, painterly look of this one.
I played around a bit with the layout and paper colors but this is the one that made the cut. I'll post variations at a later date!
Stamps: Coffee Cafe, Merry Cafe
Dies: Coffee Cups, Stitched Shapes
Paper and Card stock: Painted Autumn DSP, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Kraft (retired SU)
