Nothing’s Better Than…. COFFEE!

I’ve been so anxious to use this stamp set – it’s one of my favorite in the new catalog! This stamp set was designed by Connie Stewart for hitting the $1 million mark in sales!

I have a quick video to share with you on how to create this fast and simple card!

Halloween Keurig Coffee Maker Tutorial

Save

You all know I have a slight addiction to coffee! This is one of my all time favorite projects – it’s a paper Keurig Machine! The mini coffee cup nestles inside it nicely. You can add your favorite treat in there. In the back of the Keurig is a little pouch to house a Starbucks card!

This tutorial is FREE with any online order from my Stampin’ Up store HERE, or if you just want the tutorial for $3.95 you can purchase it HERE.

 

Starbucks Gifts Are Always a Hit!

Starbucks has made is easy for papercrafters this year!
img_0588It’s easy to wrap gifts from Starbucks this year, I hardly had to do anything to the packaging! Love that their logo is “CRAFTED BY HAND AND HEART” this year!

To make the bag, I just used the bag from the store, and scored 1 1/4″ on the 2 sides and the bottom. That makes their flat bag gusseted, so you can fit a wider gift in it (like their adorable ornaments this year!) The ornament I chose to give is their signature cup, and on the opposite size it has the state of AZ on it.

img_0590I added the coffee cup pattern below. You can decorate the coffee cup any way you want! Our Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper goes well with this theme! I used a real Starbucks “hugger” and just trimmed the sides down to match my coffee cup, then adhered it to the front. Same with the Starbucks logo, I just cut it out and adhered it with Dimensionals.

img_0589The sentiment or gift card goes on the part that slides out of the cup. The lip stamp is retired, but have no fear, a new KISS STAMP will be coming out in the Spring Catalog!!!!

Here are the dimensions of the coffee cup card. It is a little taller than 5 1/2″, so if you need this card to fit in an envelope, you may want to make it a tiny bit smaller. I didn’t put my card in an envelope, I just slipped it in the gift bag.

When you adhere the coffee lid, put a strip of Tear Away Tape ON THE VERY TOP EDGE. You can see how I can still lift the bottom party. This is so the coffee lid will slide over the coffee cup. It will make more sense when you create it and slide it in the coffee cup card.

Hope you enjoy this! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coffee Card

You know me and coffee! Here’s an oldie but goodie with a fresh look using the new Emerald Envy card stock!

I just kind of eye-balled the pattern for this. The height is 5 1/2″ so it fits in an envelope. The lipstick marks are a retired stamp that I just couldn’t part with.

This is a Christmas gift tag, and is only 4″ tall.
