Thanks a Latte


I believe I have mentioned before that I fell in love with the July's Paper Pumpkin stamp set. If you missed that post, let me say it again...I love July's Paper Pumpkin stamp set. That tea/coffee cup stole my heart and I just could not stop using it. 

This cute envelope-looking thing is actually a gift card holder made with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits. Wouldn't this be perfect to give someone a gift card to a super expensive coffee shop? 

Stampin' Tips:
  • Colors: Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, Tempting Turquoise
  • Papers: Bohemian DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Cut a 1-1/4" x 6-1/2" strip of Very Vanilla to serve as your belly band. Cut a 1" x 6-1/2" strip of DSP to adhere to the Very Vanilla strip. 
  • Punch out four stars from Silver Glimmer Paper. Adhere two stars to the ends of the baker's twine, sandwiching the twine between the stars. 
  • Don't adhere any of the flaps. Allow the belly band to hold everything together. 
  • Use the little swoop image from the Work of Art stamp set to add a little bit of Tempting Turquoise color to the cup. If the color is too dark, stamp off (stamp once on a scrap piece of paper and then on your cup).

Hello New Holiday Catalog!


Christmas makes me happy. Stamping makes me happy. So the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog makes me extremely happy.

I'm one of those people that tend to get grumpy with change, and I'll confess that as much as new catalogs excite me, I often get a little grumpy and overstimulated with new catalogs. That did not happen with this catalog. I could not get enough of this catalog when I first saw it.

It. Is. Amazing.

Check it out for yourself! And then head over to my website to make your first Holiday Catalog purchase.

Enjoy!! I believe you will not be disappointed.

Happy Stampin',
Carmelita
