Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Nothing's Better Than
edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators
from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the
and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth
If you landed here from the always amazing Mike's blog, Stampin-Style, welcome! There are eight of us
today, and I can't wait to see what the crew made with this adorable set.
Nothing's Better Than is a 26 piece photopolymer set that covers just about every decadent indulgence fit for consumption! Are you a coffee fiend? I am! I just need that second cup in the morning to wake up the ol' brain cells. Do you have a weakness for chocolate or cookies? Or maybe an adult beverage or three? We gotcha covered with this set! There is also a coordinating 9 piece die set called Love You More Than. Between the dies and the oh-so-appropriate sentiments in the set, this is just a must have!
My first card really captures how I feel about that lovely steaming liquid that helps me function in the morning. My brain isn't fully awake until after about 10:30 a.m. (which made high school SO much fun - not) so I'm on auto pilot until the coffee kicks in.
The "Coffee" was die cut three times from Early Espresso (how apropos) and layered slightly offset for a bold look, which is how I like my coffee, coincidentally.
After heat embossing the coffee cup (white on Basic White) the background was colored with Blending Brushes and Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, and Granny Apple Green ink. I thought the bright colors would go well with the Early Espresso card base. They're subtle, but a few clear epoxy embellishments added just a wee bit of shine.
My second card features yummy adult beverages. Last week it was so hot here, I could have relished an nice cold glass (or two) or Sangria. But alas, there's a ton of sugar in there which I'm trying to avoid. So, it's coffee, unsweet tea, and water for me.
I chose the drink colors from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper. It just looked like fruity goodness to me. *smile*
This is going to a friend for her birthday next week. I know she will appreciate it, even if the drinks aren't real.
That's all from me, now hop on over to see what Kelly at My Papercraft Journey has made!
