Happiness is a cup of coffee card

When a new Stampin' UP! catalog debuts do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in your week to play with all the fun new goodies!?  That's how I'm feeling right now! I'm bouncing around playing with each suite as quickly as I can!!

Today I am sharing a card and cute treat holder project featuring the Coffee Break Suite, found on pages 30 and 31 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog! 

  

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I created a cute side-fold card featuring the green and brown colors found in the Coffee Break Designer paper, and used the cute coffee cup stamps in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, then cut them out with the Coffee Cups framelits.  I embellished with the adorable Corrugated Elements heart and some Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon.  (all found on pg 31 or HERE online).

Although it's difficult to see in the photo, after I stamped the "whipped cream" in Soft Suede ink, I used my Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer and color the topping just a bit.. it's pretty in person!!   And the straw... the straw.. I'm telling you.. what a cute addition to this set!!

I thought the coffee cup would be cute layered onto an oval, so I die cut the Coffee Break paper with the Layering Ovals framelits, then layered that onto a Crumb Cake scalloped oval layer, also die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Rose Garden Thinlit Watercolor Cards

 

Flowers flowers flowers... I love flowers and I love creating Stampin Up! cards with flower stamps, flower die cuts and floral printed paper!  Today's handstamped card features all 3!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett

I enjoyed creating several cards using the Rose Garden thinlit die and some watercolor paper I had left over from my High Tide Lighthouse cards (here).  After I was done making several High Tide cards, I set aside the left over watercolored backgrounds and I knew I'd enjoy making something with them at a future date. 

And.. ta-da! I used the leftover watercolor backgrounds with the Rose Garden thinlit and die cut pretty roses and leaves in my Big Shot!!  I also die cut some dragonflies with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and the same watercolored backgrounds.

On the card above, I also decided to lightly stamp the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set over the water color background. I love how it turned out!  Click HERE to see how to make that smoosh watercolor background!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett.  Greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

 

I made the card above in May for Christine's birthday in June.  I added the Live every moment sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to the front, and also decided, why not make the inside pretty as well?  I had the Wood Words flower stamp out, and an extra dragonfly die cut.. so.... this is what I did...

 Easy crafting tip to adhere the dragonfly die cut to your card:

Craft TiP! use your paper piercer, and pick up glue dots to place on your die cuts!

 

These are some of the backgrounds I created for the High Tide cards, and I die cut the large roses and leaves, as well as the dragonflies out of the left over pieces.

Here are the die cuts on the left over watercolor background pieces... neat way to use up extras, don't you think?

White Perfect Accents are great for flower centers, and the Powder Pink ribbon looks great on this card, too!

 I added a strip of Powder Pink "Fresh Florals" designer paper on the right edge of this card to pull in that pretty pink color and more flowers.

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!
