Paper Craft Crew 307 – Simon Says Stamp Coffee & Tea
Welcome back to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge! This week we have an inspiration challenge. I was excited because, well, COFFEE! I have had some Doodlebug Design coffee goodies that I have been meaning to use up plus the set Simon Says Stamp Coffee & Tea, and it was also great because I could put the whole card together with very little stamping while I was updating stuff on my computer for work.
I had a few new things to play with too! Lookie:
Stinkin’ cute! The coffee cup and beans are cardstock stickers called Doodle-Pops from Doodlebug Design. I got the papers from their Cream & Sugar pad that is also part of this product line, except the gingham paper, which is from their Gingham-Linen Rainbow Petite Prints 6 x 6 pad. I love how you can mix and match papers from different pads without any problems.
The greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Coffee & Tea set, stamped in Versamark, and embossed with Brutus Monroe Coffee Grounds embossing powder. This was my first time using their EP, and I have to say, it is beautiful stuff! I subscribed to their monthly embossing powder subscription, and it came in the mail just in time to make this card.
I used the We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch board to do the coffee bean frame, and the SU! Triple Banner punch to do this little banner with its tiny bow of May Arts jute. I rounded the corners of my card base to match my frame using my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
A couple of little heart sprinkles from Doodlebug Design make a cute tiny accent that matches the heart the coffee cup is holding! I’m glad I finally got to use the Simon Says Stamp Coffee and Tea set…so many cute coffee and tea images and sentiments. What took me so long?!?!?

Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Scrapbook.com, Simon Says Stamp, Ellen Hutson LLC, Gina K, Create for Less, Impression Obsession, Picket Fence Studios, Sizzix, Hallmark Scrapbook, Amazon, and Blick Art Supplies. Stampin Up! links go to my buddy Wendy Weixler’s website. She doesn’t pay me, but I’m always happy to send business her way! You can, of course, change to your own demonstrator if you prefer.
Buying through these links costs you nothing extra but remits a small percentage of the purchase price to me, which helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
