Good morning! Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world, and I’m in the USA. This month we are going with a Masculine theme for our hop. Masculine cards are so challenging for me!
Thankfully, we have the new Coffee Break suite to make masculine cards so easy. My card base and ink on the sentiment are Dapper Denim, and the designer paper is from the Coffee Break paper, obviously.
I cut the large scalloped circle out of Early Espresso cardstock with the Layering Circles framelits. The Soft Sky element is cut using the Eclectic Layers thinlits. Over that I added a Crumb Cake square cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits, then a 2″ Circle punched out of Soft Suede cardstock.
The tiny coffee cups are cut from the Coffee Break paper using one of the Coffee Cups framelits! I love that Stampin’ Up! is coordinating dies not only with the stamp sets but also with paper now. Behind the coffee cups, I have a little bit of the Copper Trim. The sentiment is on Whisper White and layered on top of one of the adorable Corrugated Shapes.
I finished the card off with copper sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.
For the inside, I stamped coffee beans from the stamp set in Soft Suede.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I’ve inspired you to get into your crafting space and make something today! Make sure you hop through all of the blogs on the hop and see what these other talented ladies have come up with — you don’t want to miss any of their projects!
