Perfect Blend ~ Get it while you can

I LOVE coffee!  Have to have it everyday.  Love love love it.  So, when I saw that the "Perfect Blend" stamp set was being discontinued I was a little bummed.  But then I figured that Stampin' Up! was going to come out with an even bigger coffee themed set that I would love even more so I shouldn't worry.  But, I was wrong :(  no new coffee set!
So, if you love coffee and give coffee gift cards and gifts, get this set while you can!  It will not be on the sale table at my Rubber Rummage sale next week!! It is going to stay right in my craft room where it belongs :)

To get this hand water colored look I started by inking up the stamp in Crumb Cake and stamping off onto my scratch paper first before stamping on the water color paper.  


I then used my aqua painter to brush a little more in onto the image. I used both Crumb Cake and Baked Brown Sugar.   I also used a bit of smokey slate on the lid.

For the sentiment, I stamped in Stayzon ink, and then bushed some ink right on top. 

I used the Curly Label punch, another get it while you can item!!

Some more coffee cards from the past...

IMPORTANT NOTE:  The current catalog will be available through June 2nd, so after that retired items will no longer be available.  Retiring stamps and accessories have been "while supplies last" since May so hot items are going fast.  Also, the new catalog goes live on June 2nd, so that is the one day that you can order from BOTH catalogs!!!  I am sure that many people will be doing that so the online store may be a bit sluggish, but stick with it! 
Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Thanks for showing how you achieved that awesome coloring on your card today. Sorry don't like coffee but sure like your cards. :)

  2. Thanks Rosemarie, glad you liked it. You can do this with just about any outline stamp.

  3. I love this, Beth. You're so cleverly creative. I'm going to try this. Thank you!
