Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Hop. This time featuring the stamp set Coffee Cafe. As always there is a main link to the Stamp Review Crew blog that you can go to later to view all the wonderful creations the group has made during this hop. You can find it here. This set also has a matching set of thinlits and is a very fun set to play with. There is also a pack of matching DSP to go with it.
There are 13 stops on the hop so be sure and check them all out. If you have been following the hop in order then you have just arrived from the very talented Linda Callhan's Blog: Stampin' Seasons. She did a wonderful job showcasing the stamp set.
Now it's time to show you my creations.
Although I am not a coffee drinker this set was one of the first sets I bought. It's just such a fun set to play around with and has lots of possibilities. I decided to make some cupcake cards from the stamp set and dies. Stampin' Up! now has Embossing Paste in it's inventory and it can be dyed with our reinkers to match our colors. I added some Soft Sky to some and then spread it out on some Whisper White cardstock to dry. After it was dry I then die cut it with the whip cream thinlit to use as my cupcake icing.
Here's a closeup shot. It really looks like icing. I used the "straw" stamp to make lines on my cupcake paper, it sorta worked, right? I then added some of our beautiful new Copper Trim ribbon to my card to finish it off.
For my second cupcake card I used a different layout. Using the fun Coffee Break DSP makes cards a snap to create. I hope you have enjoyed viewing my creations as much I as did making them for you. Now it's time to hop on over to the ever creative Kelly Kent's Blog: My Paper Craft Journey.
Have a good day and thank you for stopping by!
