Happy Birthday Coffee Card

This is the card I gave my husband for his birthday. Its also the last card we did in my All Occasions Card Class. I used the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set along with the Coffee Cups Framelits, both retiring on June 4th.

The card base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ of Mint Macaron. I added a 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the Wood Textures DSP, which is also retiring .

I stamped the cup and ice cubes in Crumb Cake and sponged the “whipped” cream as well. The cup wrap (I can’t remember what its called……I don’t drink coffee) is from the Classic Garage DSP (also retiring). The cup top is Vellum and all are die cut with the Coffee Cups Framelits.

The leaves are from the Leaf Punch and they are sponged with Mint Macaron. I couldn’t resist, I had to add a double Linen Thread bow with a Glue Dot.

The Happy Birthday is die cut from the Well Written Framelits (they are NOT retiring, yeah!). I took a scrap of Whisper White, my Sponge Brayer & Crumb Cake Ink to get the “ombre” look. If you look at my card, the dark is on the bottom for the Happy and at the top for the birthday, because I didn’t use a long enough piece of cardstock.

You can see below how both words fit on my cardstock.

This is what they looked like right after die cutting. I wanted a bit more variation so I took my Sponge Brayer and inked up just the top of the letters.

This is more of what I was looking for. After you Brayer your cardstock, add a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive to the back, then die cut, and now you have a sticker and don’t have to mess with Liquid Glue. Easy peasy! The Multipurpose Adhesive sheets (page 213) are on the “hit” list, I mean the retirement list. Get them while you can. I stocked up.

If Life Gives You Lemons, CHUCK THEM RIGHT BACK!

I love the sentiments in the Lemon Zest Stamp Set. It also has a matching punch, the Lemon Builder Punch. Both of these items are on the retired list.

I started off with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Granny Apple Green card base. The next layer is also Granny Apple Green, 4″ x 5 1/4″. You can see I only embossed part of that layer so you could stamp the sentiment. I used the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.

The lemons were inked with Daffodil Delight Ink and then I took a Sponge Dauber with Crushed Curry and added color to one edge of the lemon. The first sentiment was stamped with Memento Black Ink BEFORE you put the two lemons together. The leaves are stamped with Lemon Lime Twist which is a retiring In Color. Not sure why I didn’t uses Lemon Lime cardstock……..I tucked the leaves under the lemons with a Glue Dot. Finished it off with a double Linen Thread bow.

You might be wondering what stamp and die I used for the piece the lemons are on. Well the die is called Stitched Nested Labels, they come in a set of 9 dies. The stamp is a Burch Background that I stamped with Crumb Cake Ink. I was lucky enough to win this at OnStage last month. Both of those items will be available on June 4th to order. You really should put both of them on your wish list…….just sayin’………

For You, Jar of Love

Its hard to say goodbye, but the next 3 days I will be sharing the cards we did in my All Occasions Card Class this week. Mostly retiring stamps, dies and dsp. These were my favorites when they first came out. Sad to say, that they haven’t had much/any use in a while.

First Up is the Jar of Love and the coordinating Framelits, Everyday Jars. I started out with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Petal Pink (my new favorite color since the pre-order of the Magnolia Lane Suite, which is in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog). I added a 2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of the Vellum from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. It seemed perfect to go with the Jars. What you might not recognize is the Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, which was added to the top of the DSP.  You can find it on page 174 of the new catalog.

Stamp the Jar & the For You with Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  In the jar add a few stems in Granny Apple Green. Wrap a piece of Linen Thread around the jar and tie in a bow. Next stamp the flowers with Petal Pink & Grapefruit Grove for the highlights, don’t forget to “wink” them with Wink of Stella. Also stamp the long stems with leaves in Granny Apple Green, glue just the stems onto the jar front. Add Dimensionals to the Jar and the flowers and adhere over the lace trim.  To finish off tuck the For You under the Linen Thread bow with a Glue Dot. I flicked some Petal Pink with the Petal Pink Marker using the lid.

Tip: I used just a very tiny bit of snail in each corner to adhere the Vellum to the card front. You can’t really see it.

So, good-bye Jar of Love, Everyday Jars Framelits & the Romance Specialty DSP.
