Stampin' Up! has created some really fun products to go with its Project Life program. I've used a few of them in the Project Life pages I've shared with you over the past few weeks, and I've especially enjoyed the cards in the Project Life Everyday Adventure Card Collection.
But yesterday I was making some greeting cards and I wanted today's card for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge to be bright and cheery. The box with the Everyday Adventure Card Collection in it not only was still on my desk (surprise – I didn't put it away!), but it was still open. I saw those Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry colors and thought they'd be perfect for a card. Why not use them? Where is there a rule that says they can only be used for Project Life?! Nowhere.
So here you have it! There are five different patterns from the Everyday Adventure set in this card! The coffee cup, from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set, is made up of patterns from both sides of one of the cards and matted with patterns from two other cards. The sentiment is printed on a fourth card and I just trimmed that card to fit on the card front. What a great way to get this kind of color on a greeting card!
I arranged the two rectangular elements on a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock with a piece of Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon tied around the sentiment layer before I added the coffee cup layer. Then I matted this all with a piece of Strawberry Slush Cardstock, before adhering it to the front of a Whisper White Cardstock base.
To make the coffee cup, I stamped the image three times: Once each on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and thenon both sides of one patterned Project Life card. I cut the whole cup out of Whisper White Cardstock. Then I cut the coffee sleeve from one pattern and the top and bottom of the cup from the other. There's plenty of room for stamping this particular stamp twice on one card.
I hope you take the time to go look at all the other projects made by the SUO Challenges Design Team using this coffee cup. I am SO going to copy those designs before this summer is out!
