Happiness is… Coffee and a Cupcake!

I know I promised to put the Coffee Break Suite products away for a little while. Does a whole week count? I’ve been dying to get them back out this entire time. I had more ideas that I wanted to try. If you haven’t yet snatched up the Coffee Break Suite, you need this Suite. Yes, need. There are so many things you can do with the stamp set and dies. This is just what every Monday morning needs…coffee and a cupcake. 

I made a bunch of today’s card so I’m going to use it for my June Customer Thank You Card. Wondering what the Customer Thank You Card is? It’s the card that send out to all my customers that made a purchase either online at my website or in person at an event. I usually wait until the end of the month so I can make all of them at once. Then send them out to everybody that made a purchase during the past month.

I stamped the coffee cup and then used my aqua painter to fill in some shadowing with Soft Suede ink. the cupcake is actually the cup sleeve die and the frosting is the whip cream die. I dolled up my cupcake with ribbon and pearls too. 17-7-1The frame was designed to look like an old fashioned Polaroid picture. A super easy way to make your own Polaroids is to cut a rectangle sheet of Whisper White. Then using your square die, cut the opening at one end of the rectangle. The pattern paper is adhered on the back side. 

The “Happiness” is stamped at the bottom edge of the Polaroid. Then I assembled all the cup and cupcake pieces. Once assembled, I added them to the background layer. The twine was the last bit of flourish. 17-7-2The coffee beans were stamped in Versamark Ink, which give them a lovely tone-on-tone look. The coffee beans help fill in the background without being overwhelming.
