I can’t start my day without a cup of coffee. Don’t even talk to me until I’ve had a cup! It took my husband a long time to learn this and while he now knows it, he sure doesn’t understand it. He has joked that I should just hook up to an I-V filled with coffee! Nope, it’s the flavor and smell that I love…an I-V won’t work!
This coffee card features a background of the lovely Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper, and yes, those are metallic polka dots in Soft Sky! It’s so much prettier in real life! There are three other foil colors in this pack besides the Soft Sky…there’s Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tangerine Tango. All are simply gor-ge-ous!!
Then I used a piece of Bundle in Love Designer Series Paper behind the coffee cup. The words are stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla card stock and then I pieced in the three words that are stamped with Early Espresso ink on Soft Sky card stock.
If you love coffee the way that I do, you’ve might need the Coffee Cafe Bundle so that you can make your own coffee cards. I see myself buying a lot of coffee stand gift cards in the future as a great way to say “thank you”, complete with a hand-made card!

My life is full of coffee lovers (including myself!), so I had to order the Coffee Cafe Bundle (#145331 ) as soon as it was available. I also had to have the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper because the colors in it really speak to me and I just fell in love with it at first glance!
Wood Crate with Coffee Cafe
The inside of this card is where the magic happens. I made a crate using the new Wood Crate Framelit (#143730), stamping it with Hardwood (#133035), cutting out the bottom sections of the crate before assembling and then adhering it to the inside of the card. It folds flat when you close the card and is put together similarly to the “card in a box” technique which became popular over the past couple of years.
I glued a section of a punched circle next to the crate and used it as a pocket for a gift card.
Here’s another picture. The images inside the crate are cut from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (#144155).
I hope you like this card and will find time to make your own! If you need any of the products, just click on one of the pictures below which will take you to my Stampin’ Up store.

I just love these new 2017-19 In Colors! Doesn’t the Lemon Lime Twist make quite the bold statement as a background for the Berry Burst/Powder Pink flower?
I used the same stamp for the background as was used for the leaves around the flower. The swirl in the center is the “negative” piece out of one of the swirly circles from Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies.
Summer time is my VERY favorite time of year and bright colors make me extra happy every day, in every season!
Enjoy the beauty of this season!
When I was a little girl, my sister and I would play outside and pick the flowers growing in the yard and then give them to our mom who would proudly place them in a vase. I’m pretty sure there were times when those flowers got tucked into our jacket pockets while we continued playing, only to be found later when they were thrown into the wash. We learned early on that mom didn’t like finding things in our pockets and that we were to check them before throwing the clothing in the laundry.
We lived in a small town that I would consider to be country living, (or pretty darn close to it!), so I wanted this card to have a country feel to it.
I used the Paisleys & Posies stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink on Real Red card stock to create a bandana-looking background. The Soft Sky pocket was cut out with a die from the Pocket Framelit Dies, complete with side flaps that are glued down so that you really end up with a pocket to tuck things into!
I stamped the daisies (from Daisy Delight) on Daffodil Delight card stock with Night of Navy ink and then punched them out the the Daisy punch. Did you know that this punch is Stampin’ Up’s most popular punch in 5 years? It’s so popular that they haven’t been able to keep it in stock for any length of time since the new 2017-18 catalog started! More are coming into the warehouse soon, so you’ll be able to get one….if you don’t blink!

I made this trio of cards, starting with a really simple version at the left and then stepping it up by adding more details for each of next two cards. The stamp set is Lovely Inside & Out along with the Lovely Words Thinlits. To step up the flowers in the second and third cards I used Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.
The colors are Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide, four of Stampin’ Up’s new In Colors
for 2017-19. Here are the three samples shown separately:
This is a great card for beginners, with basic stamping and a die-cut word. I’ll step it up a bit for the second card below…
On this second “stepped up” version I have added Powder Pink swirls and a glitter dot on each flower. Finally, on the third version below, I added punched out flowers popped up on top of the stamped ones, plus a swirl and a glitter dot. These swirls are the negative portion of the swirls on card #2. I also added some leafy Tranquil Tide swirls behind the flowers and changed the sentiment just a bit.
Which one is your favorite? I typically would not pair Lemon Lime Twist with Powder Pink, but somehow I think it worked on these cards.

Today as we celebrate our freedom and the birth of our great nation, let’s remember those who have kept it free…our veterans! As you watch a parade, enjoy a picnic in the park or sit at a fireworks display, be sure to thank the vets who are around you.
A veteran – whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve – is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to and including THEIR LIFE.”
Happy 4th of July everyone!
The cards I’m sharing today were made with a stamp set called “Lovely Inside & Out” along with a few sentiments and accessory stamps from other sets. The colors I used are Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point and Night of Navy.
Patriotic Inside & Out…
The silver swirls on top of the big fireworks were made with the negative (or throw-away) piece from the small swirl die in Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. The small fireworks are from a current hostess set called In the City.
The words on the banner are from Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Sunshine Sayings and Labeler Alphabet.
Have a safe and happy 4th, everyone!
