Coffee with the Beans Please!

Coffee Cafe

Loving this SUITE.  From the color combination to the cute paper.  The die cuts make it soooo easy!

SU! Color Theme:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Soft Sky

TIP:  The real coffee beans don't
want to stick - you need to pick a
half bean and then rub the side you
stuck to the paper onto a scrap piece
of paper to rough it up a little.

Sticking great with a mini-glue
dot each.  Even with handling,
they haven't come off!

The sentiment is stamped onto
a die cut cup.  Accented with
a corrugated heart.(A stampin'
dimensional will give it some
Use versamark or soft sky to stamp a background onto the inside piece of paper.
Early Espresso is used for the sentiments.
Make is extra special by tying it off with twine!

Summer 2017

After a long ...Pause... I am back to creating and focusing time on the new catalog for Stampin' Up!  I absolutely love the coffee themed set and the one with the dinosaur!  Once I get organized and remember how to link again (it has been a while)  I will get all that posted up, but here is a sample of what I have been doing:

There is more - but I want to make sure I add what supplies and colors I used for each.  

Hope everyone is having a wonderful June!
