Coffee because adulting is Hard

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day – I hope you’re having a good week! I’ve popped in this morning to share another Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project. I created a clean and simple note card for that coffee lover featuring the Perk Up Stamp Set and Perk Up Coordinating Dies! This card, as simple as it is, was so much fun and made me giggle the entire time it took me to make it!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I cut strips of patterned paper from the Keep It Simple Mango 12×12 Collection and adhered them to the bottom of the card front. I stamped the coffee pot and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Solar White cardstock and cut them with the coordinating dies. I cut two more coffee pots and adhered them together for a little dimension. I adhered several loops of Coats and Clark gold sewing thread to the back side of the coffee pot element and then adhered it to the card base. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet white enamel dots.

I embellished the inside flap with narrow strips of the patterned paper used on the front. Since this is a note card, I left the inside blank with plenty of room to write custom message.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. LOL! My mom would think that. She drank more coffee than anyone I knew. She was never without her trusty thermos of coffee. I can still see her going thru the drive thru and handing over her thermos for a huge refill. LOL Thanks for the fond memories, and for sharing your really cute and fun creation! How nice to see your creation at Jan’s Digi Stamp Challenges . Thanks for the inspiration, and I hope to see more of your designs soon.
