Today’s Special: Order $100 in product on my website using the hostess code 2MVRWQRT at check out between 7 am and 11pm EST Sept 7 and get the Merry Cafe stamp set sent to you free by me.
The project today uses the same stamp set in yesterday’s video – Merry Cafe. Instead of the mini cup as the base – today I literally repurposed scrap paper into a treat holder.
The cardboard is the thick backing that you get if you order any of the Foil or Acetate Papers. I cut one down to 6×3 along with the paper. The little coffee packets are Pumpkin Spice Latte mixes by Starbucks that I picked up at Target (bonus – you get to download points for the purchase to your Starbucks card). Because Stampin’ Up! In Colors are always On Trend – the current In Colors Peach and Emerald are an exact match to the packaging and pulled the look together nicely.
The lid and the little tag are both stamped on glossy cardstock. It’s a little hard to see in the picture, but they have a nice shine to them. The belly band embosses a light pattern into the paper. It gives a nice depth, but not so much that you can’t still read any greeting that you would want to stamp onto it.
Here is the video – with a quick….”did you know”
If you watch the videos here on my website (yea!) that’s fine – but you can click on over to Youtube where they are optimized. That means they are in HD and you can see them full screen. I only follow Stampin’ Up! – so it’s not like you have to “do youtube” – but if you subscribe then you get a notification when a new video is posted. I often have videos up a few days before I get around to having all of the pictures and things ready to go up here. I just wanted you to know there is a place that they can be viewed bigger and better!
Here you go – see just how easy it is:
