Aim for Alaska Stampin' Up! New 2017 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Blog Hop
Welcome and hello everyone! Today I have a special post for you...an Aim for Alaska Blog Hop Sneak Peak from the new Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog! That's right. You will get to see a whole bunch of blog posts from varies members of the Aim for Alaska group with new product from the new catalog! Now, I am sure if you have been strolling Pinterest by now you have seen a few of the new stamp sets, punches, dies, and DSP (Designer Series Paper). Aren't they pretty? Especially the new Painted Harvest Bundle! That has been a huge hit in the demonstrator world.
But today I decided to use one of the other stamp sets that I just fell in love with...the Merry Cafe stamp. And the best part is it coordinates with the Coffee Cups Framelits! So no fussy cutting! There is a little something for every holiday season on this stamp set too, but I especially loved the Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp. It is a cult following for this specialty drink. I have had it only once, but I fell in love with it too!
I started my card with using the Merry Cafe stamps and stamping all the parts to the cup on various pieces of cardstock and DSP. Next, I die cut out the cup pieces and put it together. I also die cut out the ovals the cup sits on using the Wood Textures DSP and Very Vanilla cardstock using the Layering Ovals Framelits. I put Dimensionals on the cup and popped it onto the oval frame and set this aside for now.
Next, I fussy cut out the pumpkins on the left out of the Painted Autumn DSP. I also stamped the pumpkins on the right using the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and used the Pattern Pumpkin Thinlits to die cut them out.
I next made my card base using a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock cut to 5-1/2"x 8-1/2" and folded in half. I cut a piece of the Spooky Night DSP to 4"x 5-1/4" and glued it onto my card base. I took my Fast Fuse and placed some on the back of the cup piece. I then took some Copper Metallic Thread and wound it around my hand a few times. I placed this thread onto the back of the cup piece using the Fast Fuse to hold it down in place. I glued this whole piece onto my card base.
I then popped up the pumpkin pieces using Dimensionals as well and placed them on the bottom half of my card. Now, I don't like seeing a "naked" card on the inside so I used the coffee beans stamp from the Coffee Cafe set and stamped some onto a 4"x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla in Early Espresso (very fitting color name!) and glued this piece down inside the card.
And there you have it! A very cute Pumpkin Spice Latte card for an avid Pumpkin Spice Latte friend or family member. And for a birthday or just a thank you gift, put maybe a Starbucks gift card inside for them to get their Pumpkin Spice Latte coffee. Perfect!
