Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite

Coffee Break Suite

I'm so excited to finally be playing with the Coffee Break Suite.  My first order from the full new catalog arrived yesterday and with all the new items to play with I settled on the Coffee Break Suite.  This suite includes the  Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating dies, plus the matching Coffee Break Designer Series Paper, ribbons, corrugated Elements and cardstock.  Here was the card I put together.

Check out the full Coffee Break Suite of coordinating dies, papers, ribbons and accessories.

I'm so impressed with this die set!!  Especially the die that turns the coffee mug band into a corrugated piece.  It has so much texture in person, it really feels like a coffee cafe experience!

I started working with a couple of the Designer Series Papers (DSP) in the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper set, but settled on just the Garden Green one with the tiny hearts on it as both papers turned out to look too busy.

Check out the coordinating dies, ribbons, designer series papers and accessories.

The cups are cut out of Sahara Sand and the tops are Chocolate Chip ink.  The bands are Garden Green with a Pool Party Heart and the tiny heart is stamped in Chocolate Chip.  What doesn't show well is the texture in the band.  You can see it better in the close up below.  I loooove that feature.  It really makes your coffee cup look realistic.


For the background behind my coffee mugs, I choose a Sahara Sand background from the You've Got This set, and stamped off once before stamping on my Whisper White.  There is a coffee stained paper in this Designer Series Paper pack that almost worked, but the stain was in Soft Suede and I wanted the stain to match my cups.  The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip.  The boarder for the sentiment is from the Rose Wonder set.

I couldn't decide if I wanted the tiny heart on the coffee mug banner or not.  I've gone back and forth on which I like better and I just couldn't decide.  What do you think?  With the tiny heart?  Or without?

Don't miss the small die you can use to cut out the coffee mug on Designer Series Paper

I also noticed that one of the dies in this set fits the little mugs in one of the Coffee Break Designer Series Papers.  Here's a closer look below.  This designer paper includes two different mugs that this die fits, so I'm sure it is going to get a lot of use.

I love this little coffee mug die.  I cut a coffee mug using this little die and then traced it on the outside of my envelope and watercolored a couple of small mugs on the outside of my envelope to match the bigger cups on my card inside the envelope.  

This suite is going to be extremely popular and I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of samples on Pinterest as demonstrators and customers begin to post their cute cards and projects with this set.  The stamp set and die are available as a bundle at 10% less than if you purchased them individually.  Use the bundle number 145331 to order this stamp set and die bundle.  Then take a look at the rest of the Coffee Break Suite for other coordinating items.  See the video for the Coffee Break Suite I posted recently, for more tips on using this suite.
