Let's have coffee...

Today brings another exciting announcement for Papertrey. Visit Nichole's BLOG to find out who the newest stamp designers are! Congratulations ladies, I can't wait to work with your new designs!! Be sure to visit each of the stamp designers' blogs listed on Nichole's blog. They're each giving away a free stamp set!! Good luck!

Today I have a fun card to share with you. It's the kind of card that you love to get in the mail...a *just because* kind of card. I'm using my friend Pine's (Heather Nichols) set called Warm Happiness. I've always loved working with coffee stamp sets so I was delighted when I saw Pine's set. And in true Papertrey style, the images are very interactive and versatile. For the coffee cup image, I used four different stamps to create the look! I paired it up with some great sentiments, I just love the fonts that Pine chose for this set. The new Spellbinders die that I used is called Classic Inverted Scalloped Squares and it will be available later this Spring. When I first posted my sneak peek of this die template, many of you were a little intimidated by it. I think it's the pointed edges....but once you saw the die actually used on a card, you loved it! It really does spice up a card, don't you think? And it offers the same embossing capabilities as the other Nestabilities Dies. Fun stuff! My base card uses Papertrey Ocean Tides cardstock along with Ocean Tides Saddle Stitched Ribbon. Patterned paper is from October Afternoon.


It's nice to have some cards like this in your stash basket, just for those times when you're thinking about someone and want to send a little something. And there's nothing as warm and inviting as a nice hot cup of coffee! Enjoy.

Hi Michelle! I look at your blog daily with my morning coffee and ooooh and ahhhhh! Today is no exception! Now I do have a couple questions I hope you'll see:
1. When embossing with the dies, is the right side of the cs up or down?
2. Where do you get the clothes pegs at? (your ribbon pegs)
Thanks so much!

I love this card, why did I not buy that stamp set? - clearly it is a necessity, must remedy...

Michelle said...

OK - I didn't buy this stamp set because I don't color images. But you show here how you can use just one color ink and still make a lovely card with that coffee image. And you're using the warm wishes and it's not even December anymore - love that. I always love the way you mix and match your stamps sets and make them so much more versatile and truly getting the bang for your buck. Can't wait to get that Nesties that looks like the postage stamp!!
