Hi there,

Here today sharing another caffeinated card! There were four awesome coffee themed sets released by Sparkle N Sprinkle this month.

Coffee Shoppe Set 695
Coffee Talks Set 700
Coffee Time Set 694
Espresso Yourself  Set 699

My card today uses the Espresso Yourself Set 699, with the sentiment from Coffee Shoppe Set 695.

I stamped the coffee cup in Versamark twice on pink cardstock and twice on brown cardstock and heat embossed the images with Pebbled Copper. The entire cups were then fussy cut from the brown and then just the holders were cut from the pink versions. The holders were taped down to the cups. I cut a little slit in the lids for the coffee stirrers.

The background was made by running pink cardstock through the Sizzix Embossing Folder "On the Go" which had been previously inked with Memento Rich Cocoa.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Teddy Brown and was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio Two. The tag was attached to the background with a piece of organdy ribbon, sponged with Rich Cocoa, with a Dimensional Dot behind it, so I could tuck one of the cups under it.

The background was then centered on the white card base, edged with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape.  Sparkle N Soft Sparkling Coffee  (how appropriate is that?) was then applied to the exposed sticky edge. The cups were positioned and stuck down with Dimensional Dots as shown.

I'm really loving these new coffee themed sets. Hope I've inspired you to take a look at them if you haven't already done so.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  7. This Copper EP is awesome! It looks a bit goldish on my monitor, but copper is such a rich look. Love the brown & pink combo, and inking the embossing folder with the Rich Cocoa was a wonderful idea. This is a folder I've not seen. What a fun idea to add more texture & dimension with a real stir stick! Terrific use of this new set. TFS & Hugs
