I have something YUMMY to share today! All the cards in this post were done by demonstrator friends of mine. I just finished up a HUGE sample share swap with our home business encouragement group and let me just tell you, they sent in some of their very finest work!
There were so many great cards to choose from, I've grouped them together in little sets of 4-5 along a theme. Today's share is COFFEE and CHOCOLATE!!
Starting you off with Penni Litwiller's card using More Than Chocolate, a brand new set in the Stampin' Up catalog. Penni said she is so glad this set comes in clear photopolymer, because it makes it super easy to line up. Good thinking! I love the little crumbs and half-eaten truffles! and to use the new Ruffled embossing folder on the lid of the box was a great idea.
There are pretty much endless ways to combine the chocolates and candy parts in More than Chocolate. Here's Mary Haugen's adorable card using the same stamp set. I think it is written in the stars that this set needs to be on my next order!
A bunch of my demo friends used the new Coffee Cafe bundle for their cards, so I'll have a whole 'nother post of just those. But coffee and chocolate pair perfectly together, so here's a really gorgeously detailed card by Cyndi Pratt.
The little corrugated element (new to the catalog this year!) is just the perfect touch. I really, really like how Stampin' Up had the Coffee Cup Framelits coordinate with the patterned Coffee Break paper to cut out the littlest to-go cups. This is such a fantastic suite.
Then my friend Sheila Roberts sent in this amazing card with the cool clear Window Sheet panel that exposes the sentiment stamped on the inside of the card. Isn't that neat? And she paper-pieced the cup so it could be patterned, too.
So many details.... great work, ladies! Stay tuned for more fun samples shortly. Did you see mine?
