Stamp Review Crew: Coffee Cafe
It is Stamp Review Crew time again! And this time we are featuring the Coffee Cafe stamp set. It has coordinating dies, 😍😍😍!

For those who are new to the Stamp Review Crew, here is a little background. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together on the first and third Mondays of every month to do a blog hop. Each hop features a single stamp set to give you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog, and you will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! And you can click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also.

If you are hopping along in order, you just arrived from the lovely Sue Plote's blog. I am certain that she is a hard act to follow 😉

I am feeling a little uninspired this week. I may have used up my juice on some projects I made for a blog hop later this week... But we can always do some watercolor!

I stamped the cup and phrases in Versamark on Watercolor paper, then Clear heat embossed. A wash of Sahara Sand, then Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party on the cups. The sentiment is a combination of a selectively inked "coffee" from one of the phrases, and a "birthday" from the Number of Years stamp set. I thought the fonts went well together.

Inside, I did some more selective inking with an Early Espresso marker on the birthday phrase from the Special Celebrations stamp set and the same "coffee" image used on the front.

Then I made a discovery. A gift card fits behind the largest coffee cup! So I made these gift card holders 😀

And I made a video tutorial for it. I may be getting a little better at this video thing... it has only taken about 40 of them, lol! Still plenty of room for improvement.

Look at that! It fits perfectly!

The inside of this one is my favorite, I think. What do you think?

OK, you know I had to go there. And you know you want to go there too 😉

The Here for You stamp set is the perfect addition to this project. And you can't see it, but the piles (of what, I will let you decide) are sparkly with Clear Wink of Stella!

Um, I guess I did find some mojo... but wait until later this week!

OK, time to head over to Yapha Masons' blog and see what she has created!

For someone lacking inspiration you've created amazing projects Tanya!!! They are all fantastic, but the gift card holder is awesome. Thanks for sharing! Kelly x

Yapha Mason said...

Those were amazing, Tanya!!! I can't believe how much awesomeness you came up with for not having any ideas... I love how youplayed around and switched up the sentiments. And that poop card is perfect!! Thanks for another fabulous hop!

Twila said...

Wow! looks like you had lots of Mojo to me! I love everything you made. You are on fire!

Dawn Tidd said...

Amazing projects, Tanya, as usual! Love the tip about the gift card behind the cup!

Cindy said...

For supposedly lacking mojo, you sure hit this one out of the park! And THAT is why you are an Artisan Designer! I may have choked on my coffee when saw the last card. I never would have thought "poop" but it was brilliant! (In more ways than one, LOL.)

Tanya the cards are fantastic including the stinky one ha ha ha. Those sentiments in that stamp set are fantastic and great the way you teamed them up with the coffee one.

Natalie Lapakko said...

You may have been feeling "uninspired" but you definitely have inspired me! The gift card holders are a brilliant idea, and I LOVE the pile of [unmentionable goo]. Too funny!

Bronwyn Eastley said...

I'm sorry, did you say that you were feeling uninspired? Tanya Boser... really!! What's not to love. You have provided some great inspiration. Carry on ...

Charlet Mallett said...

AMAZING and really, these are inspired. That poop card is so clever. I seriously love the various cup backgrounds on your first card. Really pretty.
