Coffee Cafe – The Joy of Sets Design Team Letter C

Hello my Crafty Friends,

Welcome to Our Joy of Sets Challenge #3! The letter for this challenge is C. I chose to use Coffee Café Bundle.
I used the Coffee Break DSP for cutting out the coffee cups with the little coffee cup die.

Here are the dimensions. Enjoy!

Garden Green 5 1/2 x 11 scored at 4 1/4
Wood Textures DSP 4 x 5 1/4 Embossed with Pinewood plank
Green Heart DSP 3 1/4 x 4
Circles DSP 2 1/2 x 4
Corrugated brown 2 1/2 x 3 1/2
Corrugated White 2 1/4 x 3 1/4
Thanks a Latte and 3 little coffee beans- use a scrap of shimmering cardstock to stamp on then die cut.

I layered everything together and used dimensionals to pop up the coffee cups, beans and oval thanks a latte elements.
I added a ribbon around the wood grain layer after I added the two layers of DSP. onto it.
I added the oval Friend on top of the ribbon.
I had fun making this card and loved all the DSP it came with. So many choices!

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Sprinkles of Life – Joy Of Sets Design Team Challenge Letter S

Hello Crafty Friends! Welcome to The Joy of Stamps Challenge #2! Our letter for this round is S. I chose two stamp sets, Sheltering Tree and Sprinkles of Life. I just loved the little apples on the tree.


Lemon Lime cardstock-
* 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
* 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 for Scallop Circle
* 3 x 3 for Largest Square
Real Red cardstock:
* 4 x 5 1/4 for layer
* 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 for largest scallop square
* 1 3/8 x 5 1/8 for strip on side of card
* 2 x 2 for red scallop circle
Shimmery White cardstock :
* 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 for largest stitched square
* Scraps for basket and apples
Color Theory Designer Series Paper
* 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 for layered background

I stamped the image of the tree in crumb cake ink and then used the leaves stamp in pear pizzazz ink, I slightly offset the leaves and stamped again with lemon lime twist ink. I stamped the ground in lemon lime twist.

I used the cherry from Sprinkles of Life to stamp on strips of whisper white cardstock. Color the apples with the real red marker. I punched out each apple with tree builder punch. I used the fine glue tip pen to add a clear layer of glue on each apple then set aside to dry.

I stamped the basket in crumb cake on a piece of shimmery white cs and then cut out.
I added the apples onto the tree and into the basket.
I cut out all the layering pieces with the different sized die frames. Attaching them all together and layering onto card base.
I added a piece of lemon lime twist woven ribbon to the skinny real red cs on the right hand side of the card. A mini bow was added towards the bottom.
To make the little cut out of Thanks a bunch, I cut out with the words towards the right side with the classic label punch. I then cut a little flag at the end of the words.
I did sponge lemon lime twist around the edges of the color theory DSP.

Happy Birthday!


Hello Crafty Friends!

Do we have a birthday coming up? Here is a quick card I made using the Birthday memories dsp and the matching die framelits
I used the framelits to cut out the cake and presents from the designer series paper. It is super easy and fast. I loved how Stampin’ Up! Created the dsp to work with the dies.
The baker man is from the matching stamp set and I used our watercolor pencils to color him with a blender pen.

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
