To celebrate, I am sharing a fall coffee card designed with several stamp sets and supplies from Stamp Simply!

To create this card:

De-static two panels of white cardstock (4 ¼” x 5 ½”) with an embossing powder tool.

With Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamp the coffee cup /images from the Have A Cup On Us Bundle and on the other panel, stamp the sentiment from Welcome Fall.

Apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Once the embossing has cooled, create a mask with a sticky note and stamp/heat emboss the leaf image from Harvest onto the coffee cups in the same manner as above.

Die cut the coffee cups using the coordinating Have A Cup On Us Bundle dies and color with water-based markers. Add a bit of shimmer with a clear glitter pen to both cups and set aside.

Trim the panel with the “pumpkins and spice…” sentiment to approx. 2 ¾” x 4 ¼” . 

Ink the subway style background stamp from A Cup of Java with teal ink (I used the same teal marker to color the stamp), stamp onto the bottom of the panel.

De-static the panel and heat emboss the sentiment “Rise & Shine” from the A Cup of Java stamp set with clear embossing powder (same steps as above for the heat embossing).

Add a strip of plaid designer paper (a scrap from the Doodlebug Design Pumpkin Spice 6x6Paper Pad) and mount onto a piece of teal cardstock.

Wrap a few strands of natural twine (wrapping the twine ends behind the panel) add the twine bow with a button.

Trim the pieces of Carta Bella Welcome Autumn designer paper to approx. 3 ¾” x 2 ½” and layer onto a piece of white cardstock.  Mount the panel onto a piece of teal cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of black cardstock, finally mounting onto a white card base.

Adhere a piece of 3/8" white crochet lace and a piece of scrap cardstock to cover the raw edges of the designer paper.

Adhere the layered twine/button panel onto the card front using dimensional foam and add the stamped/die cut coffee cups with dimensional foam as well.

Finish off the card with a few black rhinestones.

As many of you know, I enjoy participating with online challenges and used the Splitcoaststampers SC345 Sketch for the layout and will also be linking to the Simon Says Monday “Emboss It” Challenge, the Addicted to Stamps and More #439 Any Occasion Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #563-#564 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
