Hello again stamping friend! Are you one of the people who do a happy dance when it’s Pumpkin Spice time of year? I have to admit – I’m not! I’ve never acquired a taste for pumpkin pie, or pumpkin spice lattes. Give me a nonfat Caramel Macchiato any time! 🙂
However – I do give in to the masses and acknowledge that more people like, than dislike, the pumpkin spice. So I created this card for my Holiday catalogue Celebration party last week.
PUMPKIN SPICE and EVERYTHING NICE
The new Merry Cafe stamp set in the Holiday catalogue was a ‘no brainer’ for me to buy! Of course I had bought the Coffee Cafe Bundle (in the Annual catalogue), which has the coordinating thinlits dies to die cut the cup, lid, sleeve and accessories. That made this card a snap to put together 🙂
First I cut the 2 panels of Whisper White cardstock, and layered them on top of each other. Holding them in place with one hand, I stamped the cup rings and splatters in Crumb Cake ink from the Timeless Textures stamp set.
On a small piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I die cut the sentiment, cup shape and lid using the Big Shot with the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies.
PUTTING IT TOGETHER
First I layered the smaller panel of stamped Whisper White on top of a slightly larger panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I then lined up the stamped cup rings on the larger Whisper White, and attached the layers together using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then stamped the small leaf image in Pumpkin Pie ink onto the Pumpkin Pie cardstock cup.
Once the panels were layered together, I assembled the sleeve and lid on the cup. Then I attached a looped piece of Burlap Ribbon behind the cup, and again used Dimensionals to attach it to the panel. Finishing off the card front is one of the heart shaped Corrugated Elements.
I wasn’t sure who I would send this card to, or for what occasion, so I didn’t stamp a sentiment yet. I did repeat stamp the solid leaf image down the right side of the inside panel, in Pumpkin Pie ink.
This card was quick & fun to make! I know I’ll get a lot of use from this Merry Cafe set, as it includes lots of great images for fall, Hallowe’en and Christmas! Paired with the Coffee Cafe Bundle, and these sets will see a LOT of use all year long!
