Merry Cafe' - BSU POST

Hello and Welcome to this weeks Broke Stampers Unite blog post. This week is our stamp set week and the chosen set is Merry Cafe'. I have been really stuck on the Old Olive and Basic Black theme for Christmas this year and how awesome does this combo look on this card? I know right? I love it! Let me tell you what I did.

I started with a base of Whisper White Thick cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling TIEF #139672. I then cut out the elements of my cup using the Coffee Cups framelits #143745. I used the DSP from the Merry Little Christmas stack #144621

as well as some Vellum Cardstock for the cup top #101856. eeeek I love the way this set works. I stamped the small oval with the Perk Up from the center of the coffee shape in the Merry Cafe' set #144965 using an Early Espresso marker to get just the parts I wanted. I stamped the snowflake in Soft Sky. behind that I layered once of the Corrugated Elements #144158 from the Annual Catalog. I stamped my sentiment there at the bottom in Basic Black ink. I added a couple banner strips that I cut using the Banner Triple Punch #138292

Don't you just want to have a warm cup of coffee now? LOL While you're thinking about that head on over to Terri's Blog HERE and Stace's Blog HERE and see what they came up with for today's challenge.
