First Card New Catalog Relase Blog Hop/ Perfect Blend



Welcome to the Hop!  You should have known, if you know me personally that this stamp set would be on my FIRST order! COFFEE!  It's called Perfect Blend and I knew it was going to get inked up right away!  I started with a Whisper White base and added a NEW In Color- Coastal Cabana layer and then a Crumb Cake layer in which I embossed the lower half with the Stripes embossing folder.  I then ran  a strip of Early Expresso (get it, Expresso?-sorry) through the Big Shot with the Adorning Accents die.  I stamped two of the coffee cups in Early Expresso and fussy cut them out, and then stamped them again onto Coastal Cabana DSP from the NEW Print Packs in two designs and then cut them out and inked the edges in Soft Suede and tied some Early Expreso Baker's Twine around one of them  and adhered them (technique called paper piecing) together onto the card.  For the AWESOME sentiment, I stamped it in Early Expresso and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and layered it onto a 1 3/8" circle of Strawberry Slush!  I am IN LOVE with the IN COLORS and I know you will be too! Come back tommorrow for another card using some new colors and those lovely clay flowers!  
You should head on over to Pam's blog and see what she's got going on over there!

Great card and such a cute set! I love how you added the DSP to the coffee cups it really makes the card pop.

I LOVE your card! I have this stamp set and I love what you did with the DSP for the "don't burn your fingers thingy". Can you tell I don't drink coffee?!?!

Oh, you've made that stamp set look so awesome!!! Love that you used 2 cups with one in the back of each other. So realistic looking. And of course, I was craving my Sbx all day today. :)
