Oh, we had such fun at my Stamp and Sip Class on Friday night!
I supplied the wine and coffee (but no one wanted coffee – go figure! LOL), along with the prepared kits for making 3 cards and 1 gift card holder. Margaret, who is one of my team members (and enjoys attending my classes at 1/2 price – a perk I offer to all my team members!) brought the yummiest muffins! They were lightly flavoured with pumpkin spice – both the muffin mix and the cream cheese frosting. Let me tell you – as someone who doesn’t care for pumpkin spice – these were DELICIOUS! I’m going to have to get her recipe 🙂
Over the next few days I’ll be sharing 3 of the 4 projects. The 4th project, one of the wine cards, I’ll be sharing in my newsletter only! So if you haven’t subscribed yet – don’t miss out!

The first project I’d like to share is this fun coffee card.
I love that this bundle lets you make more than 1 type of coffee cup! Not only that – purchase the Bundle, which includes the Coffee Cafe stamp set and the Coffee Cups Thinlits Dies – and you’ll SAVE 10%! 🙂
Stamp set: Coffee Cafe. Inks: Soft Suede, Pool Party. Papers: Coffee Break Designer Series Paper, Soft Suede cardstock, Pear Pizzazz cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Soft Sky cardstock, Vellum cardstock. Accessories: Coffee Cups Framelits, Big Shot, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Tear & Tape, 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz
First create your card base with the 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Soft Suede cardstock. Score and fold at 4 1/4″. Then attach the panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock, with the Liquid Glue.
Create your cups by die cutting 2 of the cup shapes; one each of Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky cardstock. Next, stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, then die cut it using the sleeve outline die. Also cut one of the corrugated sleeves, from Crumb Cake cardstock. The next piece that you’ll stamp is the ‘foam’ or ‘whipped cream’ topping; stamp onto white cardstock in Crumb Cake ink. Then die cut it, the regular lid in Whisper White, and the large lid from Vellum cardstock. Lastly, you’ll stamp the straw in Pool Party ink onto white, then die cut it and cut to length. Die cut the ‘drip stopper’ heart shape from Pear Pizzazz cardstock. You get a LOT of use from the Coffee Cups Framelits!!
PUTTING IT TOGETHER
It took some die cutting, but now you’re ready to assemble your card front! First, assemble the Soft Sky cup. Attach the corrugated sleeve to the front with Dimensionals. Next, attach the ‘drip stopper’ heart to the back of the left side of the lid, using the Liquid Glue. Then, attach the lid to the top of the cup, with the Liquid Glue again.
To assemble your Pear Pizzazz cup, first attach the sentiment stamped sleeve to the front with Dimensionals. Use a bit of Liquid Glue to attach the ‘foam’ to the back of cup, at the top. Next, attach the straw to the back of the ‘foam’. Position it in the middle, so that it will appear to stick out of the flattened middle of the top of the lid, when you attach it next with small dots of Liquid Glue.
Next you want to wrap a length of 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz down the left side of the Coffee Break DSP. Attach it at the back, top and bottom, with a bit of Tear & Tape. Now you’re ready to attach your cups to the Coffee Break DSP panel! Use Dimensionals to attach them, to give your card extra dimension.
Of course you HAVE to add some fun to the inside panel! I wasn’t sure who I’ll be sending this card to, so I haven’t stamped an inside sentiment yet. What I did add though is the cute coffee bean image stamps to the bottom right hand corner. How fun! 🙂
This picture (above) also lets you see the fun dimension on your card front. Who wouldn’t love to get this card?! Well – maybe not someone who doesn’t like coffee!
