First Fridays Blog Hop - Coffee Cafe' Bundle

FFBH Coffee Cafe Bundle

Hi Everyone! Welcome to our First Friday's Blog Hop! This month's theme is sharing a new BUNDLE from the 2017-18 Stampin' UP! Catalog. My 2 projects feature the Coffee Café Bundle.

First is a tag you can make with the largest coffee cup die. Tie it to a coffee drink for a thank you gift! How to make a tag that opens up so you can jot a little note on the inside - other materials:

  • Whisper White Cardstock 6x3 folded in half to make a 3x3 notecard
  • Garden Green and Early Espresso Classic Ink
  • Big Shot and optional Magnetic Platform
  • Multipurpose Glue and Mini Dimensionals
  • Linen Thread
  • Crumb Cake 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon
  • Classic Label Punch
  • Crimped tool

General Instructions: Stamp the cup image so the top is off the fold line of the notecard. Die cut with matching cup die making sure the top of the die is past the fold line (see pictures below). Stamp lid with Early Espresso and die cut. Stamp sentiment with Garden Green and die cut. Punch classic label and run through crimper. With 1/8 hole punch - punch hole in lid. With Linen Thread, tie tag to ribbon.

VID03156Hi Everyone! Last month our team got together to make shoe box swaps with the theme FUN FOLDS. Since it was just our local teammates swapping this month, we did it shoe box style. We each bring supplies for others to make our swap card.

 I have a video at the end of this post so you can see the cards in action! Here are the Doll's designs!

Above is Summer's Fan Fold Card. OMGoodness what a fun Fun Fold! The accordion sides pairs with panels is super cool!
And I love the balloons added to the Sheltering Tree image.

 

DSCN6354Below is Beth's Die Cut On the Fold Card! She showed us how to die cut a circle on the fold and make this constantly changing look! So clever.

Beth Bolinger's Die Cut on the Fold Card

Each time you fold out, you get a different look...A great way to show case your Designer Paper until you get to the inside layer.

  DSCN6360Linda's Double Dutch Gate Fold card, well, blew us away! It uses the new This Little Piggy stamp set. She had A LOT of the prep work done as there is a fair amount to assemble but well worth it!

Davette Miller's Banded Fold Out Card

The new Daisy Delight Bundle was so uber popular with us Demonstrators during our pre order the punch went out of stock! We cannot even order just yet but will again in a few short week. It rocks! and I'm sure will be on everyone's list once available.

 

When you slip off the band,  the front unfolds allowing for many areas to add images, pretty pictures and designer paper.

DSCN6362And my swap card can be found on my previous post.

Here is a video that I hope show cases these awesome cards my friends created.
