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.
