Happy Birthday Cupcake

One last Coffee card, but Wa La we have a Cupcake for a Cute Birthday card.  Change up the colors for a Masculine card!  I used Berry Burst and Very Vanilla with a Soft Suede cupcake base.  The little grooves look just like a fluted Cupcake paper!  You could use some of our Foil for a Shiny base.
The Frosting is Berry Burst and the Marbled Background stamp.  The Berry Burst Oval was cut with the Stitched Framelits.


I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder for some Texture and the Sentiment is from Birthday Blossoms and cut with a Framelit from The Mini Treat Bag thinlets.  You never know where you can find some shapes that add interest and fit your sentiment!  The Candle is actually the straw and the Flame is a raindrop from the Tree Builder Punch!.

Merry Whipped Cocoa Cup

 Are you about coffeed out?  How about some Cocoa and a Pizza Box?  Sounds like an odd combination, but when you see these mini pizza boxes you will think of all kinds of treats to tuck inside!

I added this Cocoa Cup to a Pizza Box.  You could add an envelope or 2 of Cocoa mix or a Gift card to this Box.  They are so easy to decorate with the Quilted Christmas 6 X 6 paper stack.  Traditional Real Red and Garden Green with plaid and Quilt like patterns!  Cut in (4) 3 X 3 squares to decorate these Pizza Boxes.  Add a mat of 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 colored card stock for a perfect fit!


These Pizza Boxes are Food Safe and slick white on the inside.  The Cup was cut with another Quilted Christmas pattern.....see the stitching!  The Sentiment is from Merry Cafe and stamped in Real Red on the Cup Band.  I dropped s dimensional on this and created a bit of a boo boo when I pealed it off.....

How about that Whipped Cream?  So easy to create with the new Marbled stamp.  Inked it up in Real Red, laid a piece of Whisper White on top and rubbed.  An instant piece of  Whipped Cream to cut many Cocoa toppers!  Or use as Frosting on a cupcake.....tune in tomorrow for that trick!!

And the Ribbon is also from the Quilted Christmas Suite......more of this suite coming next week.

Perk Up


A little Caffeine can go along way in Perking us up!  Here is another sentiment and the Smaller Cup image that we were all wondering about when the Coffee Cafe Bundle hit the new catalog........a framelit, but NO stamp?  An image was in the Coffee Break paper.....but this is even better!

The Mystery has been solved.....we just had to wait for the Holiday catalog.  And Merry Cafe was worth the wait!!!  Perk up your friend that is ill or having a rough day.  Add a Gift card or a few Coffee flavored candies with this card.  Or just drop this card in the mail.  We all love getting a card when you least expect a card!!!

Coffee and a Donut?


Yes, these candles are Donut Scents!!!  How awesome is that, if you are looking for some cute gifts for Teachers, Friends, Co-Workers.....here you go.  With the new Coffee Cafe Bundle you can dress up this candle and add a Gift Card.....and here is HOW you do that!!


I used 3 Different patterns of the Coffee Break designer paper. for the cups on the sides and the Gift card holder that I slid in under the Burlap Bow.  The Sentiment stamped on the Soft Sky cup serves as a Tag.

Love this Coffee Bean and Leaf pattern.


And this colorful Dots Pattern.  The Candle Box measure 3 X 2 3/4.  So I cut a piece 3 X 11 and did some math!  Scored at 1 3/8 inch, 4 inches, 7 inches and 9 5/8 inches.  Fold around the Candle Box and your flaps at the top will not quite meet in the middle.  The Burlap ribbon will hold your sides in place and by Slipping the Gift card under the ribbon you do not see this gap.  I used Diemnsionals to pop each cup over the Burlap on each side,  This also keeps your ribbon from slipping off.  But this Belly Type band can slip right off the candle box from the open sides so your recipient has easy access with out ripping open the packaging!


Here is the end view and you can see the Soft Suede Belly Band.....hmmm is that Spanish?


And the Top view, the Coffee Cup tag was tied on with Linen Thread.


The Gift card was Coffee Break Designer paper folded and adhered with sticky strip and a Bite from a Circle punch to create the half circle.  I purchased these Candles at the Dollar Tree in Independence.   If anyone is interested in making these, let me know and I can post a class and stock up on the candles.  I would charge $4 each which would include the candle.

Tea Party


This set is not just for Coffee.......us Tea drinkers can go to the HOT spots as well for a Designer Drink!  Package up some tea bags, add a Gift card and you have an INSTANT gift!

I wanted this card to look all soft and soothing like that Morning cup of Tea makes me feel.  I like the slow effect of Tea.  So many flavors and benefits of drinking Tea.

I paired Painted Harvest stamps with the Merry Cafe set and grunged up the Crumb Cake card base by stamping the leaves around the entire edge.  I then stamped a random row of the same leaf down the side of a Whisper White panel.  Then used an old technique......saran wrapped globbed into a ball, inked on Pumpkin Pie ink and then touched to the white paper.  A very Subtle yet stunning back ground!



I added some scraps of Autumn Harvest designer paper and a Pumpkin Pie Circle cut with the Stitched Framelits.  This Simple cup is decorated with some of the stamps from Merry Cafe.  The cup band was stamped with the sentiment and then cut down.  I left off the lid and added some Linen Thread and a Corrugated Element as the Tea Bag tag.

Spooky Brew for You!


This sentiment is so cute and paired with some Spooky Night Designer paper makes such an adorable combination.  The Brewing beakers are stamped along the bottom of the card in Black ink on a Cajun Craze card base.  A 4X4 layer of the Beakers is layered under another pattern in this Spooky Night paper pack.  The Cup is yet another paper pattern.  Spider Webs and some sponging dirty up the cup a bit.


These sentiments fit perfectly on the cup band and this Rat........is creepy!  Do you see what I see?  Coordination....all Stampin' Up products coordinate seamlessly!  Paper, Stamp sets and accessories.  I know there is a lot of product on this card, but the ideas really flow when everything you reach for FITS your idea!!!

Hot Apple Cider Anyone?


Now here is a drink I can wrap my hands around....provided there is one of those little cardboard things around the cup......we have that covered!!  But I forgot to add it to this card......let's pretend this is Cold Pressed Apple Cider!   Lots of local spots are celebrating the Apple, Louisburg, Weston, GET out there and enjoy the Season!!

The Coordination of Merry Cafe and the Coffee Cafe Bundle make all your Fall and Holiday Drinking gifting a Special Occasion!  Package up your Teas, Ciders, Cinnamon Sticks, Cocoas, Exotic Coffees and make a Gift worth giving!!



I started with a Soft Suede card base and a Whisper White panel embossed with the Leaves Dynamic embossing folder.  Love all the texture these leaves provide and on Whisper White makes a stunning background.  Wood Textures paper stack makes a perfect apple crate.  Tucked some Apples inside and flowing over the top.  The Wood Words Bundle and the Crate Framelit work so well on this card.



Apples were made with the Round stamp and punched with the 1" circle punch.  Real Red  and Lemon Lime Twist ink on matching card stock.  The cup uses the same ink and paper and the sentiment was stamped and cut to fit across the cup......here is where I forgot my cup cozy!  Leaves were punched with the new Leaf punch!!  I used Pear Pizzazz ink and Lemon Lime Twist on this 2 step stamp from the Painted Harvest Bundle..
