Happy Fall!! It's actually starting to feel like fall here... the leaves are falling already! Crazy! AND I hear that Pumpkin Spice Latte's are all the rage at Starbucks, so I thought this would be the perfect card to share with you today! This fun card features the new Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe stamp set, the Coffee Cup framelits and the Painted Autumn designer paper.
I am including lots of tips and info for you in this blog post, I hope you find it helpful when creating your own Pumpkin Spice Latte card! Find all of the supplies in my online Stampin' UP! store here, or by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.
The first thing I did was die cut the coffee cups with the yellow/orange polkadot pattern from the Painted Autumn paper. (Find it on pg 49 in the 2017 Holiday catalog). Then I stamped the leaves on them using the Merry Cafe stamp set (pg 46, 2017 Holiday catalog), with Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist ink (see photo below).
I die cut all of the coffee cup pieces and used Multipurpose Liquid glue to assemble the coffee cups. I stamped right onto the die cut coffee cozy piece with Early Espresso ink onto the Crumb Cake die cut.
Once the cups were all done, I added the other pieces to the Very Vanilla thick note card. I punched 1-1/2" and 2" wide strips of Painted Autumn paper with the Banner Triple Punch for the background then added the coffee cup on Stampin' Dimensionals, then tucked in die cut leaves with glue dots. I used the Seasonal Layers framelits and Painted Autumn paper for the leaf die cuts.
As you can see in the photo below.. I used my Stampin' Sponge and randomly sponged on some Tangerine Tango ink onto the Painted Autumn paper, then cut the 12x12 sheet in 1/2 and die cut as many leaves as I could from the Seasonal Layers leaf dies. I cut both layers at once... see below in this post for the unique way it die cut the outline leaves!
I shared this thought on my business FB page last week... I am not crazy about the acorn pattern in the Painted Autumn designer paper pack, BUT... once it's die cut with the outline leaf, I loved it! (see above and below).
Above: I trimmed each cup with some 1/4" Copper Trim and frayed the ends a bit.
Below: I cut 2 outline leaves at once and the bottom layer did not cut all the way through.. but I loved this effect!
Several of my customers received this as a thank you card last week for their online Stampin' UP! orders. Hope they liked them!
