Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe - Stamp N Hop #3

Hello, welcome to the third Stamp N Hop - we are a group of Demonstrators around the world sharing out love of all things Stampin' Up!  This month our theme is 'Annual Catty Favourite'. Whether you are starting here with me or following on from Linda, welcome - why not grab a coffee and hop along with us...


Boy was this a hard decision for me to decide my favourite stamp set from the Annual Catalogue!

Whilst I was at On Stage last weekend one of my lovely team mates (Lyn) gave me a little treat.  I realised that I had not used Coffee Cafe very much ...

I spend a large part of my week in coffee shops, what with my thrice weekly Coffee & Cards sessions and catching up with friends etc so I guess I drink a lot of coffee!


As I was working on my project I received a phone call confirming that my house sale was going through and I now have a moving date - yipeee!


So, I thought I would make something for myself, for my new craft room.  These are the colours I used for my project - taken from the Coffee Break DSP.




I love the sentimnent ... so true don't you think?

The little coffee beans are really cute and the good news is there is a die to cut them out!

There is even a die to create an embossed cup sleeve for a realistic looking cup - SU are brilliant at these little details that make all the difference to a project!

I can't for the life of me think what the little Soft Sky heart shape is - does it stop the coffee from spilling or is it a stirrer perhaps?  If you do know the answer, please tell me!

Here is my completed panel.  At this point I could have used it for a card but I had something else in mind.

I added a mount ...

... and placed inside a RIBA frame from IKEA.  Apologies for the photo, these frames are really difficult to photograph.

Then I had an idea, can you guess?




Yep, coffee beans and, they smell lovely too!!


Here is the finished frame complete with beans.

I must have been on a bit of a coffee high when I finished the frame as I had another idea - a coffee coaster.


All I can say is that it was an epic fail!  I need to source a brown Stazon ink pad I think ... Amazon here I come.

At the time of writing this post, the bundle is still available with a 10% saving and so is the DSP.  The stamps and the Framelits will be in the new Catalogue (launching June) but not as a bundle.  So, now would be a good time to get them as a bundle and save 10%!


Thank you so much  for joining us on our third hop - click the 'Next' button below to head on over to see what Laurie has been doing.  If you get lost along the way, a list of hop participants can be found below.


You can find details of the products I used for this project below, if you have any questions, please get in touch - I am always happy to help.

Thanks again to Lyn for the inspiration nudge!

Happy Crafting!
