I wanted to give Emily's mentor teacher, Julie, a thank you card and for everything she has done for Emily. Julie is a wonderful teacher, mentor and above all a terrific friend to Emily. Julie's favorite drink is coffee, a women after my own heart, of course that had to be the theme of her gift. She also loves the colors black, white and lime green. I didn't have any lime green so I used cucumber crush card stock instead.
There is nothing like seeing someone's expression when they see your creations for the first time. I love making people happy with the items I make!
I used a retired stamp set, Perfect Blend, to make this card and tag, but you could use A Nice Cuppa stamp set if you would like. I have to say I love the Perfect Blend stamp set and it will be in my collection for a long time.
To make the card I used the following materials:
Basic Black Card Stock #121045
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- scrap pieces to stamp the coffee cups with white craft ink and the scallop circle
Whisper White Card Stock #100730
- cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
- scrap piece to stamp the top part of the stamp (the lid) and the circle
Scrap pieces of any Designer Series Paper to add to the coffee cup.
To make the different pieces of the coffee cup you are going to stamp the whole image with white craft ink on basic black card stock. Then with black ink you will stamp the lid part on white paper and fussy cut it out. For the designer series paper section you will use black ink and stamp on your the dsp paper and fussy cut. I then used the pieces you just cut and adhered them to the black base.
To make the splatter marks on the card I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. Who doesn't love this stamp set?! You can do so many neat things with it. The saying in the corner is also from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set.
I know I used some retired products to make this card and tag, but I wanted to give you some inspiration and ideas for you to make your own designs. If you have a stamp set that you absolutely love, keep it, use it and enjoy it!! For me this is one of those sets.
The scalloped circle punch that I used is on the retirement list, so if you would like it, get it soon as it will no longer be available after May 31, 2016 or while supplies last.
Here are close ups of the card and the tag I put on the bag.
I will show you tomorrow the gift card holder I made to match the card and tag.
Thank you for stopping by today!
