friendship cards, special offer

January Host Code and Coffee Break Class


Here is another idea using the Coffee Cafe Photopoloymer Stamp Set.  I love the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper! All the images are fabulous! Some you can use with a non coffee theme stamp set too. It is great that Stampin’Up! Designer Series Papers are double sided.

Coffee Break Designer Series Paper

I decided to finish off the inside of my card. I fussy cut the coffee branch and glued it to the top edge of the card with TomBow Multipurpose glue.


I stamped the coffee cup with Pool Party Stampin’Pad and cut it out using the Big Shot with the appropriate Coffee Cup Framelit. Just absolutely love the coffee beans!!!


I cut strips from the Burlap ribbon to make the bow. It just tears very easy once you get started since the weave is not tight. I really like the greeting on the front of the card. It is such a simple joy, sharing a cup of coffee with a friend.


I hope you like my project and it inspires you to CREATE! If you are a coffee enthusiast the Coffee Break Suite of products is for you! I know you would love working with it.

Coffee Break Online Class January 1-15

I am offering these two cards and the gift card holder as an online class. Just purchase the Coffee Break Bundle in my online store and I will send you all the supplies to make these cards. You will be able to make two each of the three designs for a total of six projects. Envelopes will be included. Everything will be precut for you. An instruction sheet will be included.  The cost of the bundle is $45.75 but remember it is Sale-a-bration and if your order total is $50 (before shipping and tax) you qualify for a FREE Sale-a-bration product! So for instance, if you add a stamp pad to your order you would qualify for a FREE product. If you order reaches $75 (before shipping and tax) and you apply the Host Code CUWCNKCB in the host code box you will receive a FREE Light Pool Party Stampin’Blend Alcohol marker from me and qualify for a FREE Sale-a-bration product.

You will need these items to complete the cards.

  1. Garden Green Stampin’Pad
  2. Early Espresso Stampin’Pad
  3. Pool Party Stampin’Pad (for the coffee cup inside of project 3.
  4. Memento Black Stamp Pad
  5. Acrylic blocks for your stamps
  6. Stampin’Dimensals
  7. Snail Adhesive or other adhesive of your choice
  8. Glue to adhere the twine ribbon in project 3. (I used Aleene’s Tacky Glue)
  9. Big Shot die cutting machine.
  10. 1/2″ circle punch (optional) I will have this already punched out for you. If you have this size punch it is sometimes easier to stamp the image and then punch it out.

If you do not have the Big Shot now is the time to order one, with the Sale-a-bration promotion (starts January 3) you would earn 2 FREE items from the Sale-a-bration brochure. You can purchase one in my online store.
