Today’s card is one of the small 3X3 cards.  I have really become attached to these little guys.  They would be perfect just to hand out as small Thank you notes, or for any occasion.  Today’s card is a thank you and I used, for the first time, the Coffee Cafe Suite.  And I used almost everything in the suite on this little fellow!


Coffee Cafe Bundle, 145331


My color inspiration came from the little coffee cup.  I think the Soft Sky really pairs well with the green and dark brown. That was an unexpected surprise to me.  I love surprises.  The softest color is the one that POPS !


And in case you are not familiar with this Suite of items, the coffee cup is in the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  But….there is a die in the Coffee Cups Framilits that fits that cup.  So easy, peasy in getting this cute little guy without having to stamp and color and then cut him out.  Yay for Stampin’ Up! for thinking outside the box again.

As I said, this is a 3 X 3 card.  The base is Pear Pizzaz cut to 3 X 6 and folded in half.  The Soft Sky layer is 2 7/8 X 2 7/8 with the DSP cut to 2 3/4 X 2 3/4.  I love square cards for the simple cutting of layers.

The Soft Sky heart is cut using the Sweet and Sassy Framelits.  The corrugated heart is from the Suite as well and is called Corrugated Elements.  The “Thanks a Latte” is from the Coffee Cafe stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso.  It is die cut using a matching framelit from the Coffee Cups Framelits.  And I had to add just one more thing for some reason.  So I went with the Copper Trim ribbon.  If you haven’t tried this ribbon , you really should.  It makes the cutest and easiest to do bows.  And that is all there is to this cute little card.  I don’t even drink coffee and would love to receive it!!

Remember that July is Bonus Month….. For every $50.00 you spend on one order, you cannot split it between orders, you will receive a certificate for $5.00 that you can use towards an order in August.  There is no limit to the number of certificates you can earn.  So go for it!!



Remember what I have been saying about Christmas In July !!!!  It is an extremely AWESOME deal for anyone considering becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Even if you just wanted to purchase the starter kit, it is a wonderful bang for your buck and there is no pressure for you to continue on as a demonstrator.

And now you are asking what the deal is….. For $99.00, the price of the Starter Kit, you receive $125.00 in products.  And for the Christmas In July special, you will also receive a bonus package.  This includes your basic tool kit of mono adhesive, bone folder, paper snips, grid paper, 2 of the D clear blocks, and the Carols of Christmas stamp set that will debut in the Holiday catalog.  WOW !!  So for your $99.00, you are now getting almost $200.00 in product.  That is a super deal.

Should you want to carry on as a demonstrator, you would be part of my group.  And as being part of my group, you are also an InKing Royalty.  This is a huge group of the sweetest and most talented people I have ever met.  So if you are at all interested or have any questions, I would love to talk with you about this.
