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.

A Coffee Themed Friendship Card with Anja!

Hi guys! Anja is back today sharing a super adorable coffee themed friendship card!

Anja combined images from The Sweetest Truck, Rabbit Café, and There’s No One Like You stamp sets to create this gorgeous scene!

I love how she masked off the ice cream images from the Truck, stamped out the coffee cups and donuts on the truck instead, and turned it into a coffee truck!

I love the way she built her scene, with the truck parked on a path inside a garden. The green field was beautifully blended using Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn. The cute little girl was from the Rabbit Café stamp set.

She also added some boarder details to her card by using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays! She then used alphabet die cuts from Lawn Fawn to spell out COFFEE onto her card.

I love how she added even more details on these giant letters by stamping out the coffee beans image from There’s No One Like You stamp set! Such a clever idea!

Thanks Anja for your wonderful scene!

A Super Fun Slimline Card with Davina!

Hello! Davina is back to share a super cool slimline card for us today! She combined many different stamp sets for this amazing card, let’s see how she did it!

She stamped out images from the Rabbit CaféThe Sweetest TruckFun Adventure, and Never Give Up stamp sets. I love that she colored up all of the images using a sherbet hued rainbow of colors! I love the ink blended background with the splatter of white and glittery inks.

She arranged her images into a super gorgeous scene. She compiled it as if these little characters are in a food fair! I really love how she used the café house from the Rabbit Cafe stamp set and turned it into a sushi stall! And she even turned the ice cream truck from The Sweetest Truck stamp set into a coffee truck serving beverages! So cute!

I also love how she had the soy sauce from the Never Give Up stamp set as one of those large inflatable things that are outside of shops and at fair grounds. She even created a tilt slider for it to wiggle back and forth attracting customers! How cool is that!

I love the way she masked the ice cream images on the original ice cream truck from The Sweetest Truck and replaced them with coffee and matcha tea images. She used the tiny coffee themed words from There’s No One Like You, and stamp them on the truck and even added the little cup of from the Rabbit Café stamp set on top of the truck!

She also added some decorative elements such as the trees and the directional signages from the Fun Adventure stamp set to make it more interesting!

Thank you so much Davina! I love that you mix and match so many cute images from the different stamp sets, and altering some of them to create this huge and fun scene!

I hope you are inspired by this awesome creation! Thanks for stopping by!

Jo’s Coffee-Themed Shaker Card Video

Hi guys! Jo is here today to share a super fun and clever design! She used a combination of our older and newer sets to create this awesome coffee-themed shaker card! You can watch the video below or CLICK HERE to watch it on our YouTube Channel!

To fit the coffee theme, Jo chose a brownish caramel tone for her card panels. I love how she used the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays stand-alone dies and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangle Overlays stand-alone dies to create the backdrop and her shaker card window. For the shaker elements, she used coffee beans and chocolate chips which are absolutely perfect additions for this card!

She used the cute little couple from The Sweetest Truck stamp set as her main characters. I love that she used the bowls from the Hot Mama stamp set to mimic the coffee cups that the couple is holding in their hands. The stacks of coffee beans are from the There’s No One Like You stamp set.

To add more dynamics to her card, she combined the steamy swirls from There’s No One Like You stamp set and adhered them on top of the coffee cups! The punny sentiment, “You’ve bean the best friend” is the ideal finishing touch to her card!

Thank you so much Jo for inspiring us today with this coffee-themed friendship card!

Thanks for stopping by our blog, have a great weekend!
