Hi Stampers! We have a color challenge this week, and I used the Merry Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies to create the card I am sharing with you.
I had so much fun with this Merry Cafe stamp set and these colors this week! The Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red really make a statement together, don’t they? Luckily, the Quilted Christmas DSP helped out with getting in all of the colors required.
As you can see, I also got in some dry embossing with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Lemon Lime Twist backdrop.
The coffee cup images and lids were stamped onto the DSP, Garden Green and Real Red card stock with Soft Suede ink, then die cut out. For the Whisper White cup sleeve, I stamped the sentiments on after die cutting it and added the holly berries and leaves, then went around the edges with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to give a defined border. The Lemon Lime Twist cup sleeve was die cut from the die with the ridges and a Silver Foil snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets was adhered to the center of it.
The Silver Foil swirl serving as steam is from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies. I matted the red-checked Quilted Christmas DSP onto some Whisper White and then onto the Lemon Lime Twist panel. A length of 1/4″ Ombre Lemon Lime Twist was wrapped around then, and a bow tied. The coffee cups were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then the whole art panel adhered to the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals. An extra sentiment from Merry Cafe was stamped in Real Red, cut out with the smallest banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits, adhered with dimensionals and the front was complete.
More holly and berries and the sentiment were stamped onto a Whisper White panel, then a thin strip of the Quilted Christmas DSP was added to the bottom and my card was finished!
A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
