Nothing’s Better Than Coffee and Chocolate!

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 8 – Cajun Craze

Well, here we are at Cajun Craze, my least used colour in the range! I really struggle with this colour and to me it would be great tone for Terracotta pots, but of course I do not have any stamp sets of this kind!

My next idea is chocolate or coffee, I mean who doesn’t love either of these?!!!! The Nothing’s Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than dies were the go, along with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment to be stamped on. I had all these done but nothing in the background. I tried lots of different papers, but nothing seemed to work, then I stumbled across this paper from the In Good Taste papers (on sale this month!) and I think it works beautifully, a bit like a tablecloth.

I think this card could be given to anyone, as it is neither masculine or feminine.

Birthday, feminine, Handmade Cards

Perfect Blend

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card I made using MDS (My Digital Studio), the computer program that Stampin’ Up! have had for a few years now, and will no longer offer from 31st May 2015. I am devastated about this news, but I will still use the program, there just won’t be access to new downloads or customer support.

This card was made for a special fellow demonstrator who has supported me greatly and it was her birthday earlier this month. We both loved our coffee so I thought this was the perfect blend for her!

Surprisingly I don’t own this stamp set, so I downloaded it in MDS for only a couple of dollars and I can use as many times as I like as well as resize it to whatever size I want!!!

Perfect Blend

I printed the images onto Sahara Sand card and fussy cut them out.

Perfect Blend

I printed them again but this time onto some of the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack and cut out the sections I wanted. How clever is that!!!

Perfect Blend

I added some Silver Glitter card and some Strawberry Slush Baker’s Twine and added all the elements with dimensionals.

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this card.
