For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Time For Coffee Stamp Set + Coordinating Dies with the Coffee House Stories 6×6 Paper Pad!
For my first project, I started by stamping the images from the Time for Coffee Stamp Set on some Espresso Car Stock with Versamark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder to this and used my heating tool to heat-set the images.
Next, I die-cut a circle scallop using a die from my collection on some Light Blue Card Stock. I also die-cut another circle on Neenah solar white which I ink-blended using Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink. I adhered both pieces with liquid glue.
I stamped the image from the Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and colored the images in with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image and adhered this image on the ink-blended circle panel.
Next, I cut abut 1 1/4 inches of patterned paper from the Coffee House Stories Paper pad and adhered a scalloped decorative edge on both sides for added texture and interest. I adhered this on the dark brown panel that was previously heat-embossed and added on an A2-size notecard.
I finished the design by foam-mounting my focal panel on t he card for added dimension, and stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. This is my go-to ink for stamping sentiments on white card stock.
The next project is really simple. To create the tag, I used the Fancy Edges Tag Die-set and die-cut some patterned paper from the Coffee House Stories 6×6 paper pad. I also used the same die on Espresso and Mint Green Card Stock. I adhered them all together to create the beautiful tags. This is honestly one of my favorite tag die-set ever!
Next, I stamped the images from Newton Loves Coffee Stamp Set and colored the images in with my alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut them out and foam-mounted to the tags for added dimension.
I finished the tags by adding the sentiment and the holly with a matching red ribbon and gold twine for that festive touch. Here’s a closer look:
