Today's Plan: Consume Cofffe and Be Awesome


  • Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set
  • Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale 1-30 June 2022 on Kit Collection
  • Final weeks of the Last Chance sale on the January-June Mini Catalog items

One of my favorite carry over sets from the previous catalog to the current annual catalog is the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set and the coordinating Love You More Than...Dies.  With several June Birthdays and Graduations, the coffee theme in this set was the perfect idea for a card and a gift.  I created a pocket in my card to hold a gift card from a coffee house, and selected the sentiments based on the personality of the recipient.  I used Coastal Cabana as my main color as it works for both male and female gift giving, and used Bermuda Bay as my accent color.  The dies in the Love You More Than... set were used to die cut multiple coffee cups for the front of my card, and I stamped the word "coffee" stamp multiple times on the Coastal Cabana layer to create a pattern for my card.  It turned out to be such fun card, I made several while I had my supplies out.    You'll enjoy creating fun looks with this stamp set using different die cuts, coloring medium and different accessories.  Add it to your Shopping List today! 

Greeting card using die cut coffee cups and a coffee theme using Stampoin' Up! Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set

Today's card uses a base card of Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic White Cardstock, and then another layer of Coastal Cabana stamped in a repeating pattern using the Coffee stamp from the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set.  My sentiment layer is a circle of Basic White die cut using the largest circle from the Beautiful Shapes Dies.   

Coffee-themed greeting card using Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than Stamp set

I used the coffee mug die and stamped it multiple times on Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Cardstock.  Then I used the coffee mug die from the Love You More Than stamp set o die cut several coffee mugs to use n the card front.  I also used the dies to die cut the word coffee out of Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  I fussy cut the darker shadow around the word coffee from Bermuda Bay Cardstock.  I added the coffee mugs scattered on the front of the card.  

Three coffee-themed greeting cards using different sentiment from the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

I stamped sentiments for my cards using different sentament stamps from the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set.  You'll have fun selecting sentiments that fit your need from the wide selection in this set. I used Memento Black ink to stamp the sentiment, and added the "Coffee" die cut popped up n Dimensionals.   I also added a few black Classic Matte Dots to the sentiment layer.

Inside my card, I created a pocket for holding a gift card, using the gift card holder from Celebrating In Color May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit as a template.  I added a couple more die cut coffee mugs, and I stamped a sentiment from the Go To Greetings Stamp Set to finish my card.  I love how this turned out!

Kits Collection Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale 1-30 June 2022

During the month of June, Stampin' Up! is offering the amazing Kits Collection as buy-one-get-one half-off.  Kits are ready to assemble with precut pieces and step-by-step instructions.  Kits include stamp sets, ink, adhesive, cardbases, and envelopes, die cuts, accessories, and a clear block for your stamps -- everything you need, except scissors, to complete your kit.  

All kits can be viewed online.  Learn more about Stampin' Up! Kit Collections here.

Note:  When ordering the Kits online, order each kits on a separate line so that the second kit receives the 50% off pricing.

You will need two kits in your cart for the discount to automatically apply at checkout.  The discount will automatically apply to the most expensive kit in your cart.

Today I wanted to highlight another fun kit:  Precious Card Kit

This kit includes 8 cards and envelopes; and a small carrier for storing these cute Summer gift cards in your purse.  This is a non-stamping kit, which means it is perfect for beginners and for cards you need while you're travelling on vacation.  This is one of my favorite kits as the kit creates antique post boxes, and the inserts in the kit fit into the mail box slot.  This kit works when you need cards for males or females which is a big plus in my book.  You'll love the comments you get from friends or family who receive one of these unique cards. 

Take a look at the kit contents, below:  Everything from the die cuts, base cards, envelops and accessories are all included in the kit!  Make this kit without the need to stamp.  You'll have gift cards on hand when you need them rather than making that last-minute trip to the store.  With Summer  vacations about to begin for many, this is the perfect kit to take along on a trip or to use this summer. 

Want even more fun sharing time with friends who love to stamp?  Join us for our twice or three times monthly social event where we craft with our Kits -- both from the Stampin' Up! Kit Collection and our Paper Pumpkin Kits--or other projects we want to work on.  

You'll enjoy making time to share with people you love, and Kits can help bring you together.  Use this link:
