Coffee, Kava, Java, Joe for CTS255

 
 
 
Hello Everyone!
Welcome Back!
 
Thank you for Peeking in for
Today's Card!
 
 
You are in for a Coffee Café!
 
 
 
Today's Challenge is for
CAS(E) This Sketch #255
 
 
 
Here is the Challenge!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 

 
I am in the create mode to get a project done
that I thought of LAST year, for this
Coffee Café Suite!
For all intent and purpose...This is Card #1
 

But first, here is the inside of the Card!

 
 
 
I left the inside blank
on purpose. 

 

 
Here are the Stock and Measures:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
 
Cardstock:
Early Espresso-card base, 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4" folded
in half on the score
Whisper White-cup, lid, inside panel 4" X 5 1/4"
 
 
DSP:
Coffee Break-front panel 4" X 5 1/4", strip 3/4" X 4"(reverse of the main panel)
 
Stamp Set:
Coffee Café-greeting, cup, lid, inside stamping
 
Classic Stampin' Ink Pads:
Early Espresso-cup, lid, cup band, 1 set inside coffee beans
Garden Green-1 set of inside coffee beans
 
Tools:
Big Shot-die cutting machine
Coffee Cups Framelits-cup, lid, cup band
 
 
Here is my Card (#1) again!
 
 

 
 
 
Last Sept. I asked my sisters, if they would be interested
in Coffee Café type cards? They're answer was yes!
Stampin'Up! had come out with this great
Coffee Café Suite and I was elated!
 
As sometimes things happen, I pushed this project
to the back of the file. I decided to finally get
started on this project...this card is my igniter!
 
Below are the rest of the Cards from the
Coffee Café Suite!
They remind me of Starbucks Coffee!
The coloring of the DSP is the
 dictator of these cards!
 
Here are those Cards!
I made 4 each of all 5 Cards shown Today!
 
 
Card #2
 
 
 
Card #2 inside

 
 
 
Card #3

 
 
Card #3 inside

 
 
 
Card #4

Card #5

I love this DSP!
I have another set of Cards in the making!
They are going to follow the
Dunkin Donuts colors!
I will be making 4 of 4 different Cards of them!
Stay tuned!
I am going to use the same layout for
those Cards as I have for these Cards!
Such a simple, fun layout!
I spent the day prepping the cut outs for all
those Cards!
See you then!
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Coffee Love to you ALL!

Painted With Love to HSS281

 
 
 
Hello All!
 
Welcome back for Today's Card!
 
Today's Card is for an
Inspiration Photo!
 
The Challenge is from
Hand Stamped Sentiments #281
 
 
 
Here is the Challenge!
 
 
 
I am seeing Valentine's here!!!
Metallic too!
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card!
 
 
 
I am so excited about using this DSP!

It is New in the Occasions Catalog!
It is called: Painted With Love!
Let me toll you!...this is beautiful DSP
with brush stroke like design
with GOLD FOIL touches in it too,
LOVE IT!
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!
 

 
I used the cut off strip from the front panel
inside here on the bottom...This DSP is
just GORGEOUS!!
I usually don't go crazy over abstract
design, but I have to say...I DO like this
Design...truth be told, at first, I wasn't  that thrilled
about the DSP...my first Stamp Class with
my ladies, one of the ladies said, "I'd like to see
what you do with that kind of paper".
I guess she was leery about the DSP.
I was challenged...next class,
we are going to make Valentine Cards!
The design will be similar
to Today's Card, a similar layout
with the new stamp set and new Framelits!
I think that woman will fall in Love
with this DSP as I have been smitten too!
 
 
Here are the Stock and Measures:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
 
Cardstock:
Melon Mambo-card base, 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" score @ 4 1/4" fold in half on the score, one heart
Peekaboo Peach-one heart
Gold Foil Sheet-one heart and frame for greeting
Whisper White-greeting label and inside panel 4" X 5 1/4"
 
DSP:
Painted With Love-front panel and strip inside
 
Stamp Set:
Sealed With Love-retired from last year-greeting, inside sentiment
 
Stampin' Ink Pad:
Melon Mambo-greeting, inside sentiment, sponging around the
2 cardstock hearts
 
Tools:
Big Shot-die cutting machine
Tags & Labels Framelits-label frame for greeting
Heart Punch-retired, 3 heart shapes on front
 
Accessories:
Brights Enamel Shapes-Melon mambo and Tangerine Tango-
on the 2 front hearts
 
 
 
 
Here is my Card again!
 
 
I am waiting on my order that contains
the new Valentine Bundle
"Sure Do Love You"
Stamp Set and Framelits!
 
 

I will be making more Valentine Cards
for my Family and Friends!
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Love to you ALL!

Speaking of snowflakes... 

I hope you are all melted from this last
Snowfall here on the East Coast!
 
We received 2" on Wednesday night
into Thursday morning.
With the Sun shining, we had some melt!
 
As I type this for Saturday...there is still about
half of what dropped here!
Buy the time this goes to publish on Saturday
the snow should be gone with rising temps daily!

A quick check before sending to post...there is
still a wee bit of snow left in my front yard...it
seems the house is shading the front and the sun can't
get to it for melting...where the sun has hit, snow is gone!
Which means...everywhere but my front porch and walkway! 

 
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and WARM WISHES
to you ALL!
