Merry Cafe

This is the first card we made at our monthly club meeting in December.  It uses a stamp set from the Holiday Catalog, another from the Annual Catalog and the matching set of dies.  This is what I love most about Stampin’ Up!.  Everything matches which takes the guess work out of it for you.  The two stamp sets we used are Coffee Cafe and Merry Cafe.  The dies are called Coffee Cups.  Coffee Cafe and Coffee Cups are in the Annual Catalog and part of a suite.  If you buy both of them in a Bundle you can save 10%.  Merry Cafe is in the Holiday Catalog and also fits the Coffee Cups dies.

The background of the card was made with Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Then we added a few sequins for a little sparkle because everyone needs a little sparkle in their life!

An Embossing Folder Stamp Off Challenge

Good morning!  I hope your Friday is going to be fabulous!  It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge.  This time our challenge was to use our favorite Embossing Folder.

As of today, my favorite Embossing Folder is the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I say “as of today” because my favorite stamp set, dies, color and embossing folders change on a weekly basis.  It is hard to pick a favorite when there are so many fantastic Stampin’ Up! products to choose from!

Of course it is Fall right now so my favorites colors are from the Regal Family.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango.  As of today my favorite stamp set is Merry Cafe and my favorite dies are Coffee Cups Framelits.  Why?  They are the newest in my collection and new is always fun.

Whenever I made a card I end up changing it, adding different things to it and taking things away.  As a result of this, I have a bunch of pre-cut shapes which is where I got the pumpkin and leaf from.  The pumpkin is from Pick A Pumpkin and it’s matching Thinlits called Patterned Pumpkins.  The leaf is from the stamp set Colorful Season with its matching Thinlits called Seasonal Layers.

Now let’s go see what Buffy’s and Jackie’s favorite Embossing Folder is.
