Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Kind & Cozy (item #129126)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Soft Sky, Island Indigo and Gingham Garden DSP

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, 2 1/2″ circle punch, 1″ circle punch, Brayer, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Pear Pizzazz & Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Markers, Post it note, Delicate Doilies Sizzlit, Circles Collection Framelits and Big Shot Machine


Started by using the 4th to the largest Sizzlet Circle from the Circles Collection and cut out a circle from Whisper White card stock.


Brayered Crushed Curry on the circle.

Masked the sun using a 1″ circle punched from the sticky part of a post it note.

Brayered Cajun Craze at the top of the circle.


Removed the mask and stamped the coffee cup with Island Indigo ink.

Colored the leaves with Pear Pizzazz and flower with Pumpkin Pie.

Masked the top of the circle and sponged Soft Suede ink in on the unmasked area to create a table for the cup to sit on.

Stamped the Gingham circle on Whisper White card stock using Island Indigo ink.  Punched the circle out using a 2.5″ circle punch.



Adhered the main image circle to the middle of the Gingham circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Cut a 5″ x 6.5″ Island Indigo panel, 4.75″ x 6.25″ Soft Sky panel and a 4.25″ x 5.75″ Gingham Garden DSP panel.   Sponged Island Indigo ink on the edges of the DSP panel.

Stamped the flowers at the top and bottom of the panel using Crushed Curry ink.

Cut a 3.5″ square out of Island Indigo.  Cut it in half.

Stamped the flowers on the long edges using Island Indigo ink and then sponged the edges using Island Indigo ink.  Also sponged the edges of the Gingham circle.

Die cut the Doilie using the Big Shot Machine and Island Indigo card stock.

Assembled the card, adding a 6.5″ x 10″ card base folded in half, 1/2″ x 5″ Gingham Garden DSP strip and then applied Crystal Effects to the coffee cup to give it some shine and depth.

Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.

May your day be one in a million.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
