Coffee and Friends

>> Tuesday, January 2, 2018

Hi Everyone,

I'm just in love with this new stamp Paper Coffee Cup stamp that was just released  from DRS Designs! I can think of a bunch of coffee lovers that I will be using it for, all throughout the year.

I did some paper piecing when it came to this main image.  I stamped it on white cardstock, cutting out the lid and cup, coloring it in red to look like the cup from that popular coffee chain.  No names. They don't need any help from me in the advertising!  I stamped the cup again on kraft paper, cutting out the gripper portion only and sending it through my paper crimper.  Did you read that?!  Paper crimper!  I had to dig through the bowels of my crafting supplies to pull out that neglected tool :)  So if you want a reason to dust off yours too, you HAVE to get this stamp!

I stamped the cup using the Scroll Corner Tile stamp and colored it in using my white gel pen, before assembling it and attaching it onto some oval die cuts.

The background was created to look like coffee rings.  I spritzed the red cardstock with water and took a round container (any will do, but mine had embossing powder in it.  It was just the right size) inked in brown ink and stamped it randomly.  The water made the circles bleed to look like spilled coffee.

I crimped another piece of kraft cardstock and added a ribbon for embellishment, finishing it off with the new Coffee and Friends Greeting.

Also, here's a photo of the favors I whipped up for New Year's Eve.  It was a last minute decision, so they're super simple.  A pillow box, some washi tape and DRS Designs to the rescue with their Happy New Year Circle stamp!

I filled them with a lip balm, chocolates and scratch off lottery ticket :)  

Here's hoping one of your resolutions for the new year is to stamp more!

Have a great day!

Love, love, LOVE your coffee cup card Karin!! So many wonderful elements all added up to wonderful! Love how you added the tile corner to the cup (which came out perfect btw :) So glad you found your paper crimper because the addition of the gripper is awesome!! AND the coffee rings are inspired! If I drank coffee that's exactly what most of the papers on my desk would look like!

Love your party favors too! So cute and I bet your guests were thrilled to receive their goodies!
