Perfect Blend

Several months ago, I just had to have the Perfect Blend stamp set.   I started seeing cute samples online and could not wait to get the stamp set. But once I received it, it just sat on my shelf unused for 3 months.  Unfortunately, this is often the case of me being more of a collector.  I am always telling my stamping friends to use their products.  So in a effort to practice what I preach, it is my intention to use each and every Stampin' Up product I own to make samples in the coming weeks. So here we go.

The card base is a 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock scored at 4 1/4".  The card front is a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla.  A coffee splatter was stamped with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set  in Baked Brown Sugar.  Pieces of Retro Fresh Washi Tape were added below the splatter and the sentiment was stamped in Early Expresso. 
I stamped the coffee cup once on Very Vanilla cardstock, then on Crumb Cake cardstock, and finally the band on two patterns from the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper.  I snipped out the pieces to make the cup, lid and bands. They were adhered together.  A piece of Pool Party Baker's Twine was tied around the cups.  Then the cups were added with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Card Details:
