Here’s the project I made for today:
I thought what better stamp set to use to celebrate National Coffee Day than with Rabbit Café!
First I created this fun geometric background using one of our soon-to-be-released 360° circular stencils to create a focal point on front panel which measures 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. This stencil is very versatile as it allows you to create different configurations of geometric backgrounds by using different degree of turns on our Stencils 360°™ . Consider this a little sneak peek (stay tuned for more)!
I blended with two gorgeous Catherine Pooler ink colors, Sauna and Green Tea on the stencil. I then added the Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray for some extra glow!
Using the coordinating dies to the Rabbit Café stamp set, I die cut a window on my panel so that the little girl with the coffee cup will show through from the inside. I white heat embossed the sentiment “Brew-tiful Day” onto Teal Sapphire cardstock and adhered that onto my card. To make my note card, I used the Sunkissed cardstock (these two are both new colors and are part of our upcoming release), cut out a 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″ piece and scored at 4 3/4″.
For the inside I adhered a panel measuring 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ onto my note card. Before I stamp the little girl, I made sure to position it precisely behind the cut-out window on the front.
I also added “Stay Sweet” & “Coffee Lover”, and a tiny donut from the My Sweetest Truck stamp set, which I thought coordinates with the Coffee theme perfectly! Finally I added gems to the front for some extra sparkle.
If you are new to us, dont’ forget to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube Channel to get lots of crafty inspirations! We also have our new Fall/Winter release coming up in mid October! Follow this blog to be the first to learn about the latest news and giveaways!

Hello everyone! Women are the embodiment of love, strength and courage, and I’m super excited today to be a part of the 3rd International Women’s Day Hop!
I’m pleased to say that Penguin Palace, among many others are sponsoring this year’s hop. The first stop of the hop starts HERE, please head over to check-out the full hop list where you will find lots of wonderful inspirations from many talented artists, AND for a chance to win!
For this hop, I made a very feminine card. This colorful background was created using The Floral Wreath on our Stencils 360°TM tool, at a turning interval of 45°.
I ink blended a combination of Distress Oxide Inks including Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Bundled Sage, Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet. There was no masking needed to apply these different colors to the different elements on this stencil, and that is the advantage of using the Stencils 360°TM tool! And, there was no cleaning of the stencil in between inking!
I then cut another piece of kraft cardstock to house my sentiment. To match the theme of the hop, I chose the following scripty sentiment from the Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set:
“To the world you are a mother, but to your family you are the world”
As a new mom to my first born who just turned two years old, this sentiment really warms my heart. Like some of you, I’m now a Stay-at-Home mom since I quit my job about a year ago. I’m pretty sure we share and face some of the same challenges day in, day out; yet we choose this path, as we want to spend more time with our loved ones. And I’m so glad I did it, as no matter how frustrating it gets, there’s always a moment where I think to myself that all of the hard work is more than worth it…like the moment when my son smiles and says “I love you mommy” 🙂
I hope you enjoy the above inspiration! And I hope all of us crafters will continue to be kind, positive, humble, and always support and encourage each other as we take a step forward towards women empowerment!
