Brew Some Cute Cards Up with the Coffee Cafe Bundle

The Coffee Cafe makes the cutest cards for all the coffee lovers you know. Tuck in a little gift certificate inside and it makes a special gift

Do you love coffee?  Does everyone you know love coffee?  Well almost everyone I knows loves coffee…but me!  I actually wish I liked coffee because when people talk about how they need their coffee it makes me feel like I’m really missing out!  And every time I see a picture of an awesome cup of brew on Facebook I think, boy that looks good!  But even though coffee is not my favorite I do love the sweet cards you can make with Stampin’ Up!’s Coffee Cafe Bundle.

Coffee Cafe Bundle

Save 10% when you purchase the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies and Coffee Cafe Photopolymer Stamp Set as a bundle.  See ALL Stampin’ Up! 10% off bundles here.

Stampin' Up!'s Coffee Cafe Bundle is perfect for making even masculine cards

  • Stamp the cup or not…both ways look great!
  • Using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder easily makes this a masculine card.
  • I also used the Painted Harvest Bundle and it’s a MUST!  I am using the Leaf Punch in this bundle along with the coordinating stamp on EVERYTHING!  

Sweet & Sassy Framelits

  • Have you checked out all our layered shapes?  These are the Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  There are two different shaped hearts in this set.  Here, I’m using what I call the sweet ones…but I think I like the sassy ones the best. What do you think?

  • I was hoping in the close up you could see the Wink of Stella I used on the ‘Thanks A Latte’ and the leaves.  I’m afraid you’ll just have to use your imagination.  Think sparkle!  
  • I’ve been asked, “how do you get the fuller bow?”  No special tricks.  Just double the Linen Thread and tie your bow. Then add to your card with a Mini Glue Dot.

Two Cats – Pretty As A Picture!

Calling all cat you can punch cute cats for you handmade cards, planners and scarpbookpages

Calling all cat lovers…now you can punch cute cats in all colors for your handmade cards, planners and scrapbooks!  Today I’ve chosen two of my favorite colors (Dapper Denim and Berry Burst) and placed these sweet cats in a picture frame.  I love the way their tails sort of wrap around the frame.  wo cats…pretty as a picture!

The Stampin' Up! Cat Punch is not just for Halloween.

  • The cascading flowers and butterflies give this card a whimsical feel.  And if you don’t recognize them they’re from the Bike Ride bundle on page 20 of the annual catalog.  Don’t be too concerned about the placement of the flowers and the leaves just stamp them here there diagonally across the card.
  • The tiny and adorable butterflies are from the dies in the Bike Ride bundle.  I added them to the card using our Mini Glue Dots because it’s quick and I know they are going to stay right where I put them.

Two cute cats in a stitched picture frame makes for a cute card for lots of occasions

  • The squares in the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Squares Framelits coordinate perfectly so that you can put one inside the other and cut a perfect picture frame. One with really cute stitching all around.
  • After creating the frame and punching the cats I placed them in the frame and moved them around until they fit just the way I wanted them to with the tails wrapped around the frame. I then lifted the dapper denim cat’s head and applied a bit of adhesive so they would stay in position.  Then I added a little adhesive here and there to adhere them to the frame.
  • Have you ordered the Mini Dimensionals?  They’re the perfect size when you want something small or thin to ‘pop’.  You don’t have to spend the time cutting the larger ones.  And besides being the right size…they’re just plain cute!  Make sure you put them on your next order.
  • The Recipe for today’s card is below.

I have one warning…the Stampin’ Up! Cat Punch is addictive!  Once you start punching little cats…you just don’t want to quit!!

If you haven’t seen my pretty in pink cat or my Halloween cat you might want to take a peek.

Recipe for Today’s project:

  • Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/2 and folded
  • Whisper White scrap
  • Berry Burst scrap
  • Damper Denim scrap


  • Fold the 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 card base in half and burnish with a bone folder.
  • Stamp the flower here and there diagonally across the card using Berry Burst ink.
  • Do the same with the leaves in Old Olive but stamp off first for a lighter color.
  • Use the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies and place the Layering Squares die that is slightly smaller in the center of the stitched die and run them through the Big Shot at the same time.
  • Punch the two cats in Dapper Denim and Berry Burst.  Flip the Dapper Denim cat over so he is going in the opposite direction.
  • Position the cats inside the frame the way you want them, which can be a little tricky.  Then lift the dapper denim cat and apply a little adhesive to hold them together.
  • Add adhesive in other places to adhere the cats to the frame.
  • Use Mini Dimensionals on the back of the frame and regular dimensionals on the back of the cats and place the frame and cats slightly off centered.
  • Stamp the sentiment.  Forever young is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set
  • Die cut the little butterflies and adhere with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Tie a little White Twine bow and add with a glue dot.
  • Place a happy birthday sentiment on the inside and sent to your favorite friend.
