Happiness is …

Happiness is a really fun suite of products from Stampin’ Up!  Have you seen the Coffee Break Suite on pages 30 & 31 in the Stampin’ Up! catalog?  I’m not actually a coffee drinker but I still love this suite of products.  A fun stamp set with coordinating Framelits – available as a bundle to save you a little.  Use that savings to go get yourself a cup of coffee. There is also Designer Paper, Embellishments, a card stock pack and ribbons. Plus coming soon in the Holiday Catalog is another coordinating stamp set that stretches this suite through the fall and winter holidays!

Today I have a quick and simple card for you using only the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

The Photopolymer stamp set makes it easy to line everything up when stamping.  I stamp the cup first and then the words.  And let me tell you a trick with the cup – really with any of the photopolymer stamps that are open in the center – they are very easy to bend and manipulate on a block into a shape other than how they are made.  In order to make sure you get the cup image as it was intended lay the stamp on the table so it keeps its natural shape and then place your block on top of it and pick it up.

The Garden Green layer is embossed with the new Polka Dot Basics Textured Embossing Folder.  It just adds some texture to the background.  I also added some Linen Thread – its’ my favorite!

Does coffee make you happy?
