Perfect Blend

I don’t even drink coffee, but I love this stamp set!  I have so many friends that I can make things for who do love coffee.  ( I will stick with my Vanilla Chi Tea Latte, thank you very much!)

This is another one of the NEW stamp sets in the new Stampin’ Up!© Idea Book and catalog.  Perfect Blend on page 37.  It comes in both Wood-Mount #130745 and Clear-Mount #131392.

I have had so much fun with this stamp set this past week!  I have made cards, cute little coffee gift bags, coasters and still have more ideas flowing for this great stamp set!

I completed a video tutorial for the cute coffee gift bag featured on page 36 of the new catalog.  The gift bags turned out so well!  I hope to make some of these for our church bazaar this winter.  I chose Fair Trade coffee beans and grounds so not only is someone receiving a cute gift, farmers in under-privileged countries are receiving fair wages for their work.  I feel so good about that!!

Here is a picture of the coffee gift bag.

I also made some 4″ tumbled marble coasters to go with the gift bag.  I usually give a set of 4 coasters.  And to be able to give them with a cute little decorated sack with Fair Trade Coffee – what a great gift!

For the cards, I used Coastal Cabana, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstocks, along with Early Espresso ink.  I also used Early Espresso 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.  The hearts were punched from Real Red cardstock.

I still have more ideas percolating!  I can’t wait to come up with more ideas for this stamp set!
