I'm so happy you could join the Stamp Review Crew today, because today's featured stamp is the sweet Merry Café photopolymer set! It was made to coordinate with the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies (pg. 213 AC), and it's so versatile for Autumn and Winter holiday occasions!
You may have landed here from Kelly's blog, My Papercraft Journey, or maybe you are starting here with my blog. Just click the links found at the bottom of each blog to take the tour!
My first project is a card celebrating Fall, my favorite time of year! I love sweater weather, apple cider, and hot chocolate, but you know what I don't love? Pumpkin Spice Latte. (Shhh, don't tell anyone!) Oh, I do love pumpkin pie, and pumpkin bread, and pumpkin scones, and the spices that go with them, but just not in my coffee. I'm more of a Mocha girl, and make mine a Venti, please! That being said, it is still exciting when PSL becomes available, because that means Autumn is coming!
The pumpkins were fussy-cut from the Painted Autumn DSP pack, an easy way to add more pumpkiny goodness!
For the next card, I wanted to show that many of the stamps can be used without being coffee (or tea) related.
This is a simple Christmas card showing off five of the stamps in the 29 piece set. Yes, you read that right! There are twenty-nine photopolymer stamps the cover a lot of holidays - even Valentine's Day!
I combined it with some scraps from the Quilted Christmas DSP stack to add a little color.
That's all for my projects. I had planned on making a Valentine card, too, but simply ran out of time. Up next is Ann, over at The Stampin' Schach. Check our her sweet creations!
Perfect fall card....great colors.....love the bit of foil! And great idea to make a non coffee card! Love it!ReplyDelete
I'm with you, Cindy -- I like pumpkin in just about everything, but NOT my coffee! Super cute card for it though!! I love the cut out pumpkins.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Yapha! So glad I'm not the only one. :)Delete
Pretty cards, Cindy! Love the fall cup with its touch of getting old foil! The Christmas card is a great idea with no cup! It dos show the versatility of Merry Caf,ReplyDelete

Love both your cards Cindy! We don't get pumpkin spiced lattes here - it sounds intriguing. I love a good pumpkin scone with my cup of tea! Kelly xReplyDelete

I'm not a pumpkin spice latte fan...but I am a HUGE fan of your cards! I love the colors and the cut out pumpkins on the fall card. Your Christmas card is clean and beautiful. Great job showing the versatility!ReplyDelete
Your fall card is so yummy with the warm paper choices you made, and I love the non-coffee/tea card! Very creative!ReplyDelete
Love the strips of foil with your Fall card and the silver embossing on your Christmas card, Cindy. Great projects!ReplyDelete
